Last week I got a parcel from the lovely Lillian with a little stitchery and the fabric to make Lynette Andersons "My Garden " BOM. Each block comes with a button and a cute little stitchery this is the first one called " The Barrow" I am so looking forward to the next one as I have no idea what this little quilt will look like and I think I will keep it that way until its all done sort of like a mystery quilt , lets hope I can last that long lol.

We have been working in the garden this weekend with mulching and painting the fence . Well the fence will take a few weekends with the boys help ( I seem to be doing a lot of repainting and the new mulch has more paint than the fence ,but I am happy the boys are trying )

I love these flowers they always appear after its rained and we have had a lot of rain over the past few weeks which is strange for this time of year. I am not sure what they are called but I seem to have them in every garden I have owned so I call them Bec's flowers.

I thought I would leave you with picture of Harry being Harry. John was unwell the other week with a bad cold and Harry decided to keep him company all day watch Doctor Who, both of them had a great time I'm sure. We all love Harry as he has a real personality about him and I am sure he forgets he is a cat sometimes.
Have a great week and happy sewing

Not often do I get to see the completed quilt after I have quilted it, but the lovely Maureen sent these photos of the completed quilt on the bed of a special little girl who I am told loves her bed now. I do like the Drunked Path blocks because you can have so much fun with one block. This Block can make lots of patterns and is the flavour of the moment as I have done a lot of them over the past few weeks and all of them have looked different.

Have a great week end and Happy Sewing

Hello I have been away for awhile and how I have missed everyone thanks for the few people how sent me emails to make sure all was well, life is good just busy at the moment. Bear Bear has been having a great time in New Zealand so go and look at his blog for the latest.

I have been lucky to see some amazing quilts in the past few years and some that have left me looking for a answer. I came across one of those the other day the lady had used one of those blue marking pens and is now unable to remove some of the marks, So my question to quilters out there is have you got any idea on how to remove these marks ?

I also have come across some quilting sins and think the top one on this list should be measure your borders, I understand that some times you are just so please to be on the home stretch of your quilt that you just sew your borders on and hope for the best but this can real make or break and quilt I think. So what would you class as other quilting sins I am sure we all have one that we just always look for . Well enjoy the rest of your week and happy sewing .
