What's On My Sewing Table

That is the question a friendly blogger asked me the other day. Whats on your sewing table ? Well other than a TAFE CERT 4 that is taking it over a bit at the moment. I have been working on a seasonal quilt, sort of "yule" christmas. but could be used at any time of the year. It is called "Holiday Chorus".  My local quilt shop has it as a block of the month. I just love the colours and the litle birds. The next step is put it together.   I also have a "Leannes House " on the go. The stitching is all done , now just a quiet weekend to put it together. 
Big News my son and his fiance have bought a house in Bundaberg, far from home but that is life- looks like holidays at Bagara Beach! A good  thing is Bundaberg has a great patchwork shop- lots of yummies there!

Mothers Day Wishes

Happy Mothers Day to all the mums out there in blogland. I hope you are able to spend it with your children. I am not this year so it is a liitle sad but technology and phones are amazing things.  "Grease" the musical that I have ben working on is over Yeah! It was a big success and the costumes have now moved from my laundry floor to the clothes line and into packing bags Yeah! again . Now some time to sew for me. I received some lovely inspiration to sew from my darling hubby for mothers day. I have included a pic.

some time to sew Dudley by " Melly and Me" so cute

Cup of Pins anyone?
 I thought I would show you this cute little tea cup pin cushion I found when travelling in Tasmania. I am not sure if it is a pattern or someone clever just made it. It reminds me of my grandama with her willow dinner service.
