Last month I was lucky enough to spend a week in the amazing USA, I have so much about my trip to share but i thought i would start of with a finished quilt I'm so proud of.
Remember my smitten quilt I started almost 3 years ago. Finally finished and I couldn't be happier. I took it with my to America to show all my friends as they have been on this sewing journey with me right from the beginning. I sewed the binding down my first week there then the fun photo shoots started.
I used all my favourite red white and blue fabrics, some of these are now discontinued and so hard to find which makes the quilt even more special.
I promise I will be back soon to share more of our fun adventures, including watching my very first rodeo, now there's a story.
Take care xx

I love having a long weekend, yesterday I started a new project. In fact in the last few months I Have started several new projects and even finished a few. I will share those very soon. This gorgeous block is called Tree of Life. Its a new pattern by Sherri of A quilting life. I love her designs and i knew as soon as I saw her design I wanted to make one.
I'm going to USA in July and my plan is to take my finished quilt with me to photograph while I'm there. I'm calling it my America quilt as it has come with me the last 2 trips and I sewed it while we were there. The fabrics are very special to me.
Enjoy your Easter weekend, I hope you found some sewing time.
Take care xx

The event took place on January 14th and the conditions for running were absolutely perfect. I could not have been happier.
Basically since that day I have not stopped running, I have quite a few other running events throughout the year including a marathon in Salt Lake City USA in July, now that one I can't wait for. So exciting.
I am slowly getting back to my sewing, I have made a new magazine project which will be sent off very soon and I'm starting a new design for Homespun to be published later in the year.
How people say they get bored is beyond me. Don't you agree.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

I enjoyed getting all my Christmas goodies out of storage and decorating my home.
In 2 weeks time I will be participating in my very first half marathon, I'm excited but nervous at the same time. I have been training hard for months now and after completing 2 10k races I know I'm more than ready to challenge myself even further.
Wish my luck, I'll be sure to let you know how the big day went.
Thankyou for stopping by.

We are back from our USA trip and I must say I had the best time of my life. After a few days in LA we went to Iowa to meet my dear friend and her beautiful family. It was amazing. Such a beautiful state full of gorgeous barns, houses and people.
So thats just a taste of our USA holiday for 2017.
Janita I honestly can't thankyou enough for welcoming my family into your home and treating us like part of your family. Your cooking was amazing, your home beautiful and your family are so wonderful. I can't wait to visit you again dear sister.
