A few of my favourite things.....

 This week I have been organising my projects so I can release them as patterns, this cushion was my very first design and its about to become a paper pattern. I'm so excited. I just need to work out a cover page with the help of my son who is a whizz at computers. where would we be without our computer nerds.
 In April I'm going to Melbourne to the Australasian Quilt Convention so I made myself  a bathroom bag from my Cath Kidston  fabric, I bought a book ages ago that  had a CK bag kit with it and I never made it so I cut it up , added a zip and made a little pouch complete with sew on label.
 I'm all caught up with my Fat Quarter Shop BOM, this is block 8 and the quilt is looking so pretty. I must take a photo of all my blocks together.
 I have been spending lots of time in our garden, we have had no rain so I'm watering all the time. I bought quite a few packets of bulbs to plant soon, I love growing flowers, I guess you already know by reading my last few posts that are about my flowers. They give me so much inspiration for my Stitchery designs which you will see very soon in a magazine. More on that later.

 This is one half of my Zinnia garden, I do love these pretty little flowers.
 This cosmos just popped up among them, its cute to,

I think thats all from me for now, have a wonderful week.
Downton Abbey starts tonight, I can't wait. I've got my stitching all ready.
