I thought I'd better show you some photos of things I've had hanging around for a while now. A little bit of housekeeping if you will.
Firstly this is the quilt I received from Wendy in the first round of Christine's doll quilt swap.
Wendy - I don't think my emails to you are working but the quilt is definately here! The detail and the hand stitching are amazing. I notice more each time I look at it.
Secondly this lovely parcel arrived from my friend Frances in Sydney. Frances and I met several years ago through work, she at our Sydney office and me in our Brisbane office. We worked together on a lot of projects over the years and kept in contact mainly through email and a few business visits. In a funny coincidence we wound up having our first babies within 3 days of each other (Fran is a few years older than me :) Since we've both now left the organisation we've still kept in contact and our creative pursuits have blossomed together. She credits/ blames me for her new addiction to all things fabric! I sent her a bundle of scraps and some 1 inch hexagon papers the other week to help her in her hexagon swap. In return Fran has sent me this wonderful package containing one of the Vignette magazines, a beautiful card and the most amazing framed hexagon.
Thanks so much Fran! I love it all and you are a treasure!
Lastly, mostly due to a 20% off sale, I went off to Spotlight the other day to acquire some of the Denise Schmidt fabric. I came home with just a little bit! Not my fault my local Spotlight had just about every fabric in the range in stock!
I got a half metre of each of these.
And a full metre of these.'
Now if any of you are desperate to find these Picnics and Fairgrounds fabrics, I could be pursuaded to return to my Spotlight to acquire some more ;) Drop me an email.
Hopefully that's cleaned out a bit of my housekeeping and I should be back soon to show you the finished Sunshine quilt, I'm just finishing off the binding now.
