My SSCS has arrived all the way from the US. Mary has asked me to open the big present first as she would like me to be able to use it this year.
I will post a picture once I can show you all the goodies that she has sent me. I am very lucky. Thank you.

I joined Helens stitching around the block and I had to send mine off to Fiona. These are my favorite colours. Looking forward to getting my quilt back in the next few weeks.
Thanks Fiona for taking great photos.

I have been busy stitching for Fiona over at bubzrugz.blogspot.com/. She was my swap partner. I will be able to reveal in a few days what I sent her.
Mr Australia Post should be arriving at your place in a few days Fiona, hope you like your gift.

After finishing all the usual household chores, I managed to get some hand sewing done.
The weather was just beautiful to sit on the deck. Two more blocks to go then I will be joining them together ready for the quilters in October.

There hasn't been a lot of sewing happening here. Angus has been keeping us up every night for the past month. (he's about to turn two) Last night he did sleep through so today I got my red handsewing quilt out(previous post pictures) and sat here, it was lovley to feel the little bit of sun that came out.

Another project for the box. I whipped these bon bon's up yesterday in no time. The pattern is by Hatched and Patched. I opted not to do the embroidery on them as I am going to put the person's name on them. Closer to Christmas all I have to do is fill them with chocolates.

Two posts in one day wow.
This is a quilt that I have made before (see previous post Mum's Quilt) My In-laws loved it so much that I am making it for them for Christmas. The Quilt is called Formal Elegance by Rickety Stitches, it's only a four block pattern but I am making it for a Queen Size bed so it has to be 16 blocks.

I have made this quilt for my mum, it is called "Formal Elegance" by Rickety Stitches. I enlarged the size to fit a Queen Size Bed. There are 16 blocks, all with backstitch and some satin stitch.
I am very happy with it, hope she is too.
