July finishes

I have been very productive this month and finished a few projects. Above is  a cushion and pincushion made from Happy-go-lucky. The hexagons are new precuts and I have almost finished putting a small quilt together with them.
Precuts are so quick to make up. The 2 1/2" squares go together so easily and fast. The cushion below also uses these squares as well from the 3 sisters Lario range. The stitchery design is one of Helen Stubbings.

And another finish- block 2 of Chateau Hexagon.
We still have a few of these left.
And on a miserable wet Sunday I am getting some time at the machine, hopefully to finish off more projects. It would be easier if there wasn't so much new fabric coming in to tempt me!

New from my iPad

 We went to Longford this morning to take photos of some quilts in natural settings. The first quilt is one I have played with in an app that I downloaded. It is my new Tilda quilt.  The next photo is my Year quilt that I have also played with. This has been a big learning curve once again. I just hope these will now upload. Working on the iPad is still very challenging for me.

More Christmas blocks finished

My absence from blogger for a month can be explained by the photo above.
Last month my daughter introduced me to instagram. Now this has been a great experience, but it has also been consuming a lot of time. I have learned heaps and one of the best things has been learning how to make collages - as shown in the photo. I have also been learning how to download apps and how to lose all your info from your iphone! Some info has been found but a lot was lost to cyberspace never to be seen again. So I will now try and catch up with what has been happening.

Kim whipped up this bag really quickly last week using some Boho fabric.

Here's another photo collage from Stanley. A lovely weekend away with great weather and a climb to the top of the Nut. Great perseverance was shown and I did make it to the top!
The next three photos show new fabric from Lynette Anderson, Nancy Rink and treasures from Shabby Chic.
Now I am using my iphone so much I will try to update the blog from there in a more timely fashion.
