Strip Quilt

This quilt came together quickly using the "Strip Tube Ruler". As the blocks finish with a bias edge its most important to get the borders on so they don't stretch. I've used Amy Butler fabric along with some Moda Bella Solids and very happy with the results. Not sure how I'm going to quilt it yet.

Special Days

April has gone way to fast for me, I'm still trying to catch up.
We celebrated my husband's 48th birthday on Anzac Day with this yummy Chocolate Torte and family. We didn't have any candles but tea lights work well.
My niece Jessica gave birth to her first baby, Sapphire Rose

Two Little Bears

These two little bears arrived in the post along with my order from Debbie Magee. After inquiring about the bears that often featured on the cover of some her patterns, Debbie surprised me with these two little cuties.

Thank you Debbie, you brighten my day!!

Punch Needle Holder

We have been having lots of fun teaching Punch Needle and this week I finished the Punch Needle Holder by Anni Downs
I have used DMC stranded cotton this time but I'm looking forward to using Valdani 3ply threads for my next project. The beauty of these threads is that you don't have to divide the threads and there is no stopping and starting or rethreading. Just thread and go and there are lots beautiful colours to choose from.
