Time in the sewing room ......

is so wonderfully theraputic :)   I spent a few hours with my friend Cynthia in her shop, Cynthia's Ark, yesterday.  I was motivated to get back in the sewing room on my return home.  I have been quite busy with camera club secretarial duties, and after spending time sorting through some stuff in the sewing room after I was able to acquire some shelves (see my post HERE), I was itching to get my foot back on the sewing pedal!

First up, I finished my Christmas Block for my September partner.
Christmas Ornament Block

I have decided to step down from being the Co-Ordinator of this Christmas Swap.  I have been doing it for 3 years & 8 months, and I think it is time for a change.   I really want to spend more time in the sewing room, and less on the computer doing swap admin stuff - it can be very time consuming process.  The reins will be handed back to the group's founder, SueB, in preparation of the October swap.

Then I got to finish off one of the Farmers Wife Sampler blocks, that was half complete when I started rearranging everything for the new shelves.  I thought I had lost some of the pieces, but I found them.  I wondered why some of the pieces did not come together as nicely as my last block, and I remembered that I had not starched these pieces :(  so there was a little bit of stretching on the HSTs

Block 13: Buckwheat

I am happy enough with it :)  I may redo it, when I redo some of the others .... I may not LOL

This is what motivated me to get back sewing ............

I saw this up on Cynthia's shop wall ............. I just have to make this one!  Already playing with fabric combinations in my mind LOL

FNwF - Friday Night with Friends

My LQS has closed :(  but there is some good news in that A Quilter's Odyssey will continue with workshops and classes and guest speakers at another location :)  They are still on Facebook so it will be very easy to keep up to date on things :)

Some of the fixtures and fittings were for sale, and I was able to buy two shelf units and a trestle table.

My Friday night was spent with Mr Fixit putting all the shelves together :)

So, this is my sewing room at the moment - a mis-match of storage options.



Stay tuned for more pics over the next week or so, as I sort through that wall of 'stuff' :)

Light the Night in Adelaide

You may remember I recently made a quilt for my friend :) 
Rainbow Coin Stacks - front

Well, Di has been sent home - sadly, there is not a lot more then can do for her, but there is one more ray of hope - a clinical trial.  We are all hoping and praying that this trial will have a positive outcome :)


I'm lighting a lantern at Light the Night on October 9 in support of my friend, Di.

More information on this event, can be found HERE

Please support the Leukemia Foundation with a donation to help Australian families impacted by blood cancer. 

Di's team 'Di's Peloton'  will hit the streets on October 9, walking to support the Leukemia Foundation and our wonderful Di'sy. Please consider joining me, or if you cannot make it, making a donation to support this special cause.  Light the Night, we are doing it for Di!
