I'm Back.... and so is my sewing Mojo




well we have been back for a while really, about 3 weeks almost. Things have been flat out as usual in our house and getting to sit down at the computer has been a challenge and also i have been working flat out trying to get some very special secret sewing done

but this is what i can show you


after seeing a quilt made from these 1" pointed thimbles, i just had to have a go, not sure of the final project this will be probably a pillow.... 
these were put together whilst we driving around Tasmania
and i am so excited because i can actually sew the thimbles together whilst gadget is driving the car...
so i can see EPP is going to be something that will always be in the car for road trips


Anni Downs "sing bag", from her "the simple life" book...
i purchased the kit in Sydney in June

just need to get the lining done


some new fabric , to make some bright summer skirts


and here is some photo's of Peg & Dale that i didn't manage to get up whilst i was in Tasmania 


catching up with the locals in Mole Creek Tasmania


Hanging out in their favourite place, a patchwork shop


this is the absolutely fabulous, The Quilted Crow


it was just such a gorgeous shop filled with gorgeous fabrics....



the shop is in this gorgeous sandstone church


with it's equally stunning stain glass windows, it was the only patchwork shop i managed to visit in Tasmania

and the lovely

Leonie and Deidre made the three of us so welcome


Peg and Dale are still hanging out with us here in the beautiful

Hunter Valley

i m sure we will have some more photo's next time

i hope your hands are working on something that you love

Ciao

The googy girl
