Back at the machine

Its be a wile, I have been busy at work, playing hard at partying over Christmas etc

My sewing has been limited to a little xmas bunting, a baby book and a table runner, all gifts for lovely people.
Now its down to serious sewing! some quilts that need to be finished for the Queensland Quilters show in October - but  I am only procrastinating here! 

I do have some quilts to be started for other deadlines, life is never dull.

I am loving having the 2 Berninas set up, one for piecing and one for quilting, it is making life easier, and less changing settings etc.

Double wedding ring close up, finished at last, I am actually quite happy with the finished result

more double wedding ring, complete with shadow!

Christmas house bunting, this was so much fun, I will have to try some more one day.

After all that christmas cheer, its down to some serious sewing, paid employment and a little gym!

Hand stitching

After a long break holidaying and working hard, I am back sewing. I am making some cushions for a magazine project. One is machine quilted. One is being an experimental hand stitched wonder!
 It is good for watching the cricket under the air con on hot night!
There are many projects on my list for this year, several hanging over from last year. But I am on a mission to finish! OK! !maybe I might start some new pieces, but this year is for finishing!
