Tuesday's Treasured blogs

There are so many wonderful blogs out there and I recently found this wonderful blog, and I immediately fell in love. At the moment I'm on a repurposing, recycling furniture binge and I'm sucking up ideas like they are sweeties.  And there are so many delicious ideas here at The Colorado Lady.
just like this one HERE.
Every Thursday there is Vintage Thingy Thursday.  I'm sure you will love it too.
And on top of everything else Suzanne is a dog lover too.  Just my sort of person.
Please pop over and say 'Hi'.

Do you have a blog you particularly enjoy.  Would you like to share this lovely place visit?  If so please pop your details into Mr Linky so we can all take a look.
Molly Flanders is another wonderful place to visit.  If you follow this LINK you will find two brilliant tutorials both shared in one post.
Foundation Pieced Court House Steps and

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate

We took a trip to Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery in Yarra Glen.  Huge bowls of free chocolate greet you on arrival and then you see a wall of wonderful chocolate.
The setting is beautiful
the food delicious
the company charming

and even the chairs were made just for a hexie lover like me.
Well worth a visit if you are in Melbourne.
There is a brilliant tutorial on how to make Prairie Points at fabulous Patchwork Posse.  Just follow this LINK.  Patchwork Posse is a great place to visit.
Have a wonderful day

EPP-ing with Anthea

Are you EPP-ing? asks Anthea at Hibiscus Stitches.  Well yes I am.  I'm adding to my red, white and pink collection as often as I can.  
Some of these hexie flowers will be firmly sewn to canvas to make new seats for two chairs I scavenged from a road side collection.  The chairs are to be painted cream first.  
I also plan to paint this op shop screen cream, then place hexie flowers panels where there is currently calico.  
Finally there will be a hexie flower quilt to tie it all together.  A long term project for me.

Thanks so much to Anthea at Hibiscus Stitches for giving me the opportunity link up to her Piece Yourself Together Linky Party.
I'm having lots of fun EPP-ing.
For today I found this adorable mini quilt pattern and tutorial.
It is made by Amy Smart of Dairy of a Quilter and shared as part of a fabulous feature on sorting, storing and using scraps HERE.
Amy shares the actual pattern HERE at wonderful Flamingo Toes, as part of 
Enormous thanks to both Amy and Bev, a couple of quilting and blogging stars.

Hope your day is full of fun

Tuesday's Treasured Blogs

I've been a huge fan of Not Quite Nigella ever since I first discovered blogs.  Written by Sydney food blogger, Lorraine, here is how she describes herself.
Not Quite Nigella is Lorraine Elliott, a cake and food enthusiast who believes that cakes belong in an art gallery. Born and raised in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, she lived on the Lower North Shore for 8 years and has now returned to the Eastern Suburbs where she lives with her food-apathetic husband who takes most of the restaurant photos for her blog whilst she takes all the still photos of the food that she cooks. In April 2013, her memoir called "Not Quite Nigella" was released by Penguin Books.
Her recipes are delicious and I love her writing style.

Do you have a favourite blog you would like to share with us?  It can even be your own.  Just mention it in your blog post and link up below.  Then we can all share in the fun.
Oh Vanessa, thank you so much for this fabulous free project.  It is adorable.
It is irresistible, actually.  I really need a coin purse, so I think I see one of these in my future.  If you would like one too, please go HERE to visit fabulous Vanessa at her brilliant blog, Tried and True.  Many many thanks to Vanessa for sharing this lovely project with us.

John has the day off  today so we are off on an adventure to seek out delicious cake.
Hope you have a delicious day too

Pink Hexies

These little hexie flowers are part of the Inchy Hexie Flower Swap and are heading off to someone who didn't receive their hexies when another member became very sick.  So they are officially angel hexie flowers.  I'm looking for a little angel button to send with them.
I haven't been sewing much in the last few days because I had a nasty MS fall, getting concussion and a very bruised wrist.  Thank goodness for Netflix, I've binged watched House of Cards Series Two and Three.  I also watched the Babadook which I thought was brilliant and very unsettling.  Can't get Ba ba dook, dook, dook out of my head.  No Mr Babadook books for me and Henry!
And speaking of my darling Henry, here he is.
He recently came to stay for a week or so which was brilliant.  That's his big brother, Wil, in the background.  Henry adores him.
I love Shiny Happy World, such a brilliant name for a blog and such a happy place to visit.  If you go HERE, Wendi shares four fabulous free embroidery patterns including this one called Tweet.
Enormous thanks to wonderful Wendy.
Have a really happy day
