Time flys

I have just noticed that is is over 2 months since I have posted on my blog. That begs the question what have I been doing in that time. Not much when I look back. The office where I work has moved location same suburb but different direction from my house. A piccie of my work station and view that I have from my window is below





One of the townhouses that I can see has two lovely big cats that love to sun themselves all day in the window. Lucky cats I say...I wish I could join them sometimes.

Onto the business of sewing...lots of ideas and I did finish off a dresden plate cushion cover. Looking back on it now I should have bought the next size up cushion in order for the plate to sit better however I was pleased with how the method turned out.



Believe it or not there is a plan in that mess on my work table. I have been invited to attend a quilting weekend away at the end of the month held at Mittagong and I thought it was about time that I started using up my ever increasing pile of scraps. A scrappy quilt I thought was the way to go however my personality does not allow me to do "scrappy scrappy" so I got out the coloured pencils, workbook and ruler last weekend and designed a scrappy quilt. Hence the pile is being sorted into lights, medium lights, medium, medium dark and dark.



The last photo shows a quilt that I am working on using batik fabrics using the square in the square method. I love the colours and designs in the batik fabrics. There is still a long way to go on this quilt but I have put it on hold so I can prepare my scrappy for my weekend away.



I hope that I am able to get back here before another 2 months goes by with piccies of my scrappy and batik quilt progress.
