I got a belated birthday present yesterday from Lillian and it was a pile of fabric with a note to make myself a table runner. I have to say I love presents like that because I have the fun of making it. So I was a bit naughty and instead of working yesterday afternoon I played, if the truth must be know it was the fabrics fault it was talking to me to make it. Sometime fabric can be so naughty lol.

I love it and had a lot of fun making it, I love the red but I always love Moda reds they are so beautiful. Oh I am off to Tasmaina in a few weeks and so looking forward to catching up with friends and seeing some truly beautiful places. Happy sewing and have a great weekend.

Auhhhhhhhhhhh school holiday, Jury duty and now to top of a really full and sometimes interesting few week , its short by 4 inches. I know you are probable scratching your head by now and to tell you the truth so am I.

I have finished the center to the quilt kit I brought from America and have gone to put the first boarder on only to find the fabric is short by 4 inches, so the hunt will start this weekend to see if we can track down the remaining 4 inches in one of our local shops ( shame that :D )

I have really enjoyed making the kaleidoscope blocks and with the special ruler, I found it very easy to create.

I have been on jury duty for the last week and have this week to go, well it has been interesting and the boys are now back at school as off today (thank you) so life will soon go back to some normality well as normal as any house with two teenage sons, a dog, two cats and one DH will ever be. Well better go hope you all have a great week and happy sewing
