The sweetest little elephant...

...and he is a needlecase...I just love him.
I bought this little elephant at a fundraising stall at Quilts Aged and Loved last week.  He was destined for the present box but I've decided to keep him because he is irresistible.
I just can't resist a little pompom or two, so this great scarf is perfect for me.  If you think it is perfect for you too, then please visit HERE at Crown Hill for  the instructions and a fabulous detailed tutorial too. 
Hope you get some time to stitch today
Love

Ramona's Wall Hanging

One of the patterns we received at Stitched in Time a couple of weeks ago was this gorgeous little mini designed by Ramona Herman.
I stitched it up in Country Gardens thread Plum Pudding and am partnering it up with some of Anni Downs Christmas fabric from a couple of years ago.

As I love Anni's style, I recently bought her fabulous book so don't be surprised if you see some of the designs from this fabulous book appearing on my blog very soon.



Time for this week's Good Fence with TexWizGirl at The Run *A* Round Ranch. 
This pic was taken just near the miniature railway in lovely Cobden, Victoria.


Ella and Nestas Little Room is a delightful place to visit and I fell in love with this sweet little Autumn themed project.
Super sweet pattern and there is a tutorial too for the gorgeous Mini Tag Bunting HERE.  There are heaps of tutorials on mother daughter team, Ella and Nest's blog so please take the time to browse around.  I'm sure there is something for everyone.

On the subject of bunting I loved this stall at Quilts Used and Loved last Friday with its butterfly, dragonfly and hearts bunting floating around.  Might have to do the same in my sewing room.

This morning I'm heading off with lovely Ann to the Millrose Mill House Retreat for three days of stitching heaven


Tell you all about it when I get back.  I've scheduled a couple of posts for while I am away, hopefully they will appear on the weekend.
Hope your weekend is wonderful,
Love

Hexies from Iceland

One of the wonderful things about the Inchy Hexie Flower Swap is that the members are from all over the world including Edda who sent these beauties from Iceland right across the world to here, in Melbourne, Australia.
I've asked for my hexies to be in red, pink and white and I'm just sewing them together at random as they arrive.  I love how this quilt is coming together.  When it is big enough I will bag it and then hand quilt with pink perle cotton.  It is going to live on the back of this couch over my checked quilt.
I love the look of layers of fabrics whether on a couch or on the bed.  No minimalism in this house.


With Halloween nearly here I couldn't resist these little cuties.  You can find the patterns HERE at wonderful Paper-and-String.
Don't forget to pop over to the gorgeous Etsy shop too.
Happy Stitching
Love

Eastern Palliative Care Quilt Show

This is one of my favourite quilt shows in Melbourne.  This year it moved to a new venue and it was as fabulous as always.  Again I enjoyed the company of my dear friends Christine and Ann.
The quilts were wonderful.  Here are just a few of my favourites.




Gorgeous Melanie was one of the white glove ladies and she showed us the back of a number of quilts, including this brilliant one.  I am so in love with the backing fabric.


I just can't resist a hexie or two.


I'll share some more tomorrow.




I always really enjoy a trip over to Molly Makes.com and fell in love with this beautiful cosmetic bag designed by Kate Smith of The Makery.  You can find this pattern and a great tutorial HERE at Molly Makes.
Hope you have time for some stitching today
Love

A Wonderful Weekend

Sam, Henry, John and I headed off to Cobden on the weekend.  It was their Spring Festival and a special celebration at the Cobden Miniature Railway.  Sam and John played with trains and Henry and I played in the beautiful grounds which include a pioneer settlement, playground, mini golf, lake and fabulous gardens.  There was delicious food in the clubrooms too.  Huge thanks to all involved for making us feel so welcome.
I was pretty excited to see the trees in the main street of town had been yarn bombed.




There is a really wonderful Wool Applique a Technique Tutorial, over at fabulous  Sew Mama Sew. It is written by guest contributor Alison Glass, you can visit her at Alison Glass Designs.
Hope you have a fun day
Love
