Well I have finally got myself sorted out and I am back into the swing of things. (took me a while right?). Well the first thing on my list is to get my UFO's done, and I have a few to do. I have decided to complete them from smallest project to the biggest. So here is my first completed UFO. It's a needlecase designed by the talented Natalie from Cinderberry Stitches, it's a free pattern you can download off her site so go check it out.
This is my first go at needlepoint applique, I did ok I think. It was easier than I thought it would be and it took no time at all. Of course I have done it in my own choice of fabrics and it was a lot of fun. I am happy it's finished it has been sitting for months and now I'm done. (What a great feeling it gives you to get a UFO done).

I found it enjoyable and certainly less messy but I won't be giving up my paper anytime soon. Fun for something different though. I will probably keep doing the digi style here and there but nothing will replace paper for me I LOVE IT!!! Thank you Kaisercraft !!!

Hello I am still here. Thought I had better post before my blog gets spider webs. I have been busy, but isn't everyone these days. I have some images to show you, projects I am sort of working on (you know what sort of means) well I will get them completed one of these days. My first image is of my first ever applique quilt and I am making it for a friend, actually it is for her daughter it's a christening gift. I got the design from Australian Quilters Companion-design by Kirsten Duncan of Townsville. She had made a little wall hanging, very cute. I decided to use the bird design and change it slightly to make it a small quilt for a child. Thank you Kirsten!!!!!
I have also been working on a bejewelld quilt, I will give you a sneak peek. I am hand stitching a design at the moment out of the most gorgeous silk thread from gumnut yarns which you can purchase from Malanda Quilting and Sewing Supplies on line.
I have started stitching a needlecase designed by Cinderberry Stitches. Love these cute designs. it is a free design of the blog so go download it and have a stitch.
Last but not least I have recently returned to an old love, SCRAPBOOKING. I have made a xmas card for a special lady. What do you think?
Well that's all for now I have all these projects to finish and still alot of photography work to do and I need to get all the chrissy presents made, wish me luck, I will need it !
