The gang is all here

A variety of birds visit my garden every day.  Usually there are half a dozen or so corellas.  The main flock live in the park three doors down from me...but yesterday the whole gang dropped by. They were happy for me to walk really close to them, within inches, and it was absolutely thrilling.

There were about 60 all together.

Fabulous design, gorgeous bag, wonderful instructions and tutorial.  What more could you want?
Well aren't we lucky because you can find them all HERE at Michael Ann's wonderful blog Michael Ann Made.
Hope you have time for some stitching today

Inspiration from A Little Different

I love A Little Different, a fabulous patchwork shop in Geelong.  Everywhere you look is something to enchant you.
I was very taken by the vases of twigs adored with apple, pears, 
patterns and Rosie's bunnies.

So I bought the bunny pattern, and these adorable fabrics.  

I've already got some linen, so a new project has begun.
This is such a lovely block
If you would like to make it, please visit Four Wise Monkeys, Rachel's lovely blog.  Here's the LINK.
enormous thanks to Rachel for sharing it with us.
Have a wonderful day

A wonderful buy

I was lucky enough to find this beautiful embroidery on linen at one of the stalls at the Ballarat Apron Festival...and only $15...a super bargain.
and a closer look
and closer again.  It is so beautiful...

...and I love the green linen.

I was so inspired by the Margaret Sampson George influenced quilts at this years Quilts in the Barn that I plan to use this fabulous find in an MSG inspired quilt.

I love this beautiful design on a tea towel.
It is very kindly shared HERE at Turkey Feathers.  Many many thanks.
Have a wonderful day

The girls are back

Some of my favourite blogging friends got together at the Geelong Quilt in.
And as usual we had a brilliant time.  
This time the swap was a Gail Pan design and many oohs and aahs were heard when the goodies were unwrapped.
Such a clever group of stitchers

We are so lucky that super talented Corey from Little Miss Shabby was a guest blogger at brilliant Sew Mama Sew and shared the first instalment of her Mini Medallion Quilt.  Just follow this LINK and you too can make this gorgeous block.
Isn't it fabulous and here is the whole design.
Hope your day is filled with happiness

Tuesday's Treasured Blogs

I was lucky enough to hear Kathy Doughty speak at the Geelong Quilt In.  I am a huge fan but had never heard Kathy I am an even bigger fan.
She was a brilliant speaker, charming, engaging and funny too.  We were treated to a fantastic trunk show of some of her quilts.
I have long been a fan of her fabulous blog too.  Called Material Obsession, you can visit it HERE.  It is certainly one of my favourites.

Do you have a blog you love (it can be your own) please share the details in a blog post and link up with Mr Linky so we can all enjoy it too.

Do you fancy Stacks of Stars on a quilt?

If you answered yes, please pop over to the fabulous Moda Bakeshop HERE and you can make Heidi's brilliant quilt. Heidi blogs over at Fifth and Plum and I'm sure you'll love it there.  Many many thanks to Heidi for sharing her talent with us.
Hope you have time for some stitching today

A gift for Barb

Last year Barb and I started a four times a year swap using a basket made by Annie.  This time it was my turn to fill the basket with goodies for Barb.  I decided to go for a ladybird theme.
It was heaps of fun gathering and making goodies with this theme.
One of the gifts was a little stitchery necklace and here's Barb wearing it.
I love having Barb as one of my friends, she is a wonderful person.
I found a LINK to a truly delightful mini quilt pattern to share today
It is very generously shared by Rose at wonderful Threadbare Creations.  Enormous thanks to Rose for sharing it with us.
Hope you have a wonderful day
