Long Weekend Sewing

This is my sewing table. Hopefully this pile will soon turn into the log cabin quilt I am making for the Singapore Quilters Challenge, due in only a few weeks.

SewingTableScraps_edited-1It’s a Long Weekend here, so should be able to get some tasks on the To Do List out of the way.

Of course once again I was sidetracked and this was much more fun …

MakeUpPurse I love these bag and purse pattern from Nicole Mallilieu, but have been wary of the complicated looking buckles and other gizmos, so thought I’d start with the Make-up Purse pattern which I picked up in Melbourne recently.  I’m really pleased with it. The instructions were clear and I only broke one machine needle sewing in the zip! What a Klutz!

Happiness is……

a parcel full of fabric!

Have been a little under the weather and DH said there was a parcel waiting at home from WA (Western Australia) for me.  It was actually (WA) in the US.

It was some lovely, new quilting fabric all the way from Quilt Home  in the USA.  This is one of my favourite websites for drooling over gorgeous patterns and fabrics, all bright and modern and just itching with possibilities. Some of it is for my quilt for the Singapore Log Cabin Challenge, but obviously I can’t show you any of that yet.

Hopefully Mr Postman will have some more goodies soon.
