This week ....

Not very often that I go nearly a week between posts.
Here is an update of what's been happening this week in the sewing department.

I made a new pencil case for Keegan for her return to school Monday.

Term 4 already ..... yikes!
(Sorry if it scares some - including me - but I've added a Christmas countdown
 to my blog ..... just over there on the right)

This is a secret squirrel project so this is all I can show at the moment.
It is now finished and will be listed on my OPAM list as "Secret Squirrel 1"

Full reveal will be at a later date. I LOVE it, hope the recipient does.

I've also been slowing working at my Vintage / Liberty Spools Quilt 
and can tick another 14 Spool blocks off the to-do list.

I love the birds on this one :o)
(Off track a little here, but.....)
Wednesday night we gave these a go.

The first item I've been tempted to buy from the show (Recipes to Riches) and have since been back to the supermarket to get some for the freezer for our next Pizza night.

This kid loves being in the kitchen.  We are making cookies later today :o)

I've finished another hexie for my Best Friends Forever BOM

Started a new bag .......

  and a Christmas project.

I've also realised that since Football season has finished I don't have a project ready to grab as I run out the door so I've found myself admiring the Tulips in town (Bendigo) between appointments this week.


They were a little wind burnt but still beautiful. Tulips would have to be my favourite flower.

But then when it came to Basketball practice ..............  

Yep, taking pictures of your feet is not that exciting! (a good chance to show off my Tat, yes) lol
I think I really need to find a portable project to grab as I run out the door this summer :o)

Hugs Sharon


  1. . You have been working on some lovely projects, your stitching is so neat and precise. Definitely need a portable project.

  2. a lot has been done since your last post, the hexie is very nice and the tulips look spectacular in the field. Your christmas project looks interesting.

  3. love your hexie stitcheries, they are going to make a magnificent quilt.
    that little christmas stitchery looks a little familiar lol.
    the fabrics you have chosen for your borders are beautiful.

  4. So has there been more cooking than sewing?

  6. I would love to try those pizza base mixes too - I usually just use Lebanese bread for the bases in our pizza oven.

  7. Wow what a busy week you've had Sharon - lovely update on the things you've been doing

  8. awesome shoes! I love them! Who makes them? It would be real cute to make a different fabric crazy colored flower to change out :)

  9. You have had a busy week, I love all your projects. The fussy cut liberty fabric is beautiful. The tulips are gorgeous too, hugs Wendy

  10. Well.... that was a lesson in how much gorgeousness it's possible to cram into one week! :o) Love all your projects and your kitchen helper is so cute. Great tat!
