I have been preparing and sewing lots of blocks for my Floral Beauty quilt this past week or so, and have begun to notice a lot of fluff/hair on everything……. wonder where it’s coming from!

Well, I’ve been busy!  More Morrell blocks, some DJ blocks and starting a couple of new quilts and doing some cross-stitch and stitcheries…. yep heaps, I just haven’t posted in ages.  So here’s some photo’s I’ve what I’ve been up to.

Morrell Quilt – I’m a bit over it (have been the last couple of months) so I’ve decided it’s going to be a generous single bed quilt.  I’ve sewn all the blocks made together and left space for the ones left and then there will be the border to do.  If you would like a closer look at the individual blocks have a look under the Morrell tab.

Dear Jane – have sewn up a few more blocks that were already cut out (need to cut out some more for when I’m in the mood for DJ).  I’ve put these all under the DJ tab.  I’ve also been working on a DJ cross stitch.  Silly me forgot that I was suppose to do this over two threads – but it’s been so long since I’ve done any I did it over one thread on 25 count aida – it’s a strain on the eyes!  The pattern is called “Quilt Sampler VI” by Linda Myers, I purchased this on a trip to Maldon from The Village Patch.

Girls Day Out Weekend – Attend a lovely weekend stitching with 80+ women hosted by Country Thyme in Mooroopna with Rosalie Quinlin, Melly and Leanne Beasley.  Country Thyme is a lovely shop with lots of goodies, and a great range of fabrics and patterns.  We got a great show bag with about 9 patterns from these three designers, I also bought kits for a couple of them.  I’m please to advise that I’ve finished Rosalie’s bag and needlecase, and have stitched one of  Leanne’s doilies.  I’ve really caught the stitching bug and am keen to do some more now.

Topiary Trees Cross Stitch – I’m loving working this in one colour, sorry but I can’t find the orginal link for this freebie pattern.

Floral Beauty – This is my last project…. I’m loving working on 6 1/2 ” blocks for a change.  This pattern is by Irene Blanck, and is sold through the gorgeous Threadbear quilt shop.  I’m using a mix of fabrics but quite a few are from Blackbird’s “Beach House” range.
