Lucy Boston BOM

My lovely friend Sandy has started her online business, Shiralee stitches. She sends out a regular newsletter and a few weeks ago I received her newsletter and discovered she was doing her first BOM program

And what a first BOM program to start with . . . . . 
A Lucy Boston block /Quilt is something I have long thought about making. So when I seen Sandy was doing this I just couldn't resist.
Actually signing up for this BOM caused me some drama s. I signed up for it the Thursday night before I drove to Bathurst for the bloggers meet. Unfortunately I arrived in Leura and discovered I had left my wallet / credit cards on the lounge. Luckily I had my license and my bank allowed me to withdraw money without my card. So it did nt inhibit my spending too much
although Chooky had offered some financial assistance if required.

Just love the fabric in this block, the fabrics are from the Community fabric range, a lovely range from the Collections for a Cause,by Marcus fabrics

It all came together so easily, I actually did a little stitching when i was on night duty
at home of course . . . 

All complete, probably one of the quickest BOM's I have ever done. Can t wait till next month.

If you would like to join the fun pop on over to Shiralee Stitches and sign up.

Crafting frenzy

Two weekends ago I was fortunate to spend the whole weekend with the most lovely group of Women. I attended the Bathurst blog meet. Held this year at the Vale at Perthville. organised by the fabulous Chookyblue.

It was pretty exciting in many ways, I got to visit,

The home patch and do some serious retail therapy.

I just adore Annie s designs and added these to my collection.

I also got to do a few laps around Mt Panorama ( something now off my bucket list) it was a really fabulous weekend and I returned home refreshed and enthusiastic to get crafty. But not just with sewing.

After many discussions with Sonia my enthusiasm for baking bread was re invigorated and I have started a new sourdough starter, we did have a little hiccup but Sonia popped me back on the right track and I really hope to make a loaf this weekend.

After chatting with Kylie and Jodie I felt a little enthused to get my knitting needles back out and since a purchased some lovely cotton off Jodie I thought I would knit a face washer as a Christmas gift.

Before I went to Bathurst I had purchased some cord to have a go at a cord basket, so I made one of those as well. They are super quick and relatively easy.

And whilst i was at Bathurst I started a pincushion designed by Anni, I nearly have the top complete.

So I ve been a very busy gal. But it feels just great.
