A weekend away

We have just come home from a lovely weekend away in Hobart, it was a great time had by us all. The reason we went was so hubby and 3 sons could go to the cricket last night. While they were gone I stayed behind in the cabin with just my stitching for company. It was wonderful. I got lots done. Hows this for a bed, I've never seen a triple bunk bed before, the boys thought it was pretty cool.
I love looking at this bridge, its so pretty as you get close then drive over it,

I found this magazine in the newsagent, I've been after it for ages. It has some beautiful blocks I want to make.

A trip to Hobart wouldn't be complete without a visit to The Quilted Crow. Deidre made me a cup of tea when I got there which was so nice. I bought these lovely fabrics. I loved the all over design fabric, full of pretty reproduction diamonds.

I found these fabrics at Big W, they are so nice and weren't very expensive. Now I just need to think of something to make with them. Have a good week everyone.

Busy Lizzie

Yesterday I had a good sewing day, the boys were back at school andI had the day off so there were no interuptions, I finally put my dresden blocks to good use and made a table runner. I'm going into work on Monday to quilt it. I'm so pleased with how it turned out, the Rounneries fabric range is just beautiful. I can 't wait for their new range Rural Jardin to get here, its coming in March.

I was looking on the internet last week at free quilt patterns and I came across a basket quilt, it was stunning so of course I had to start it. I have made 8 blocks already, only 20 more to go. What do you think? They are fun to make, Have a good weekend and I hope you get lots of sewing done. I know I will.

My new shelf

I had to share with you a picture of my new shelf my husband made me to hang my quilts, isn't it great. I can slide the rod out to change quilts. I have it hanging in the hallway above my sideboard and it makes the whole layout so cozy looking, I would like to change the quilts with the seasons. Do you remember the table runners I made a couple of months ago, well here is the big one all finished. I made it to fit the top of the sideboard and I'm so happy with the end result, Is't it good when your plans all work out.
