A rather bright Peacock

        I haven't made myself a quilt in a lot of years so I thought I would start with a centre and make it grow.   I started organising the fabrics for my quilt a few years ago at the Sydney Craft Fair and I think I might have been wearing sunglasses at the time. I mean they are bright.... even for me......

But I will keep sewing it as I do like the effect... What do you think????

I started with the peacock fabric and these are what I chose.

Have a lovely day

Naughty Lists

                      I thought I would get your attention...
I made a Christmas wall hanging for the Tangled Web Quilters Christmas Swap ( thats a mouthful) and loved doing it so I made 2 more for my sons and their partners.
             I found this pattern in A Christmas Story By Anni Downs Hatched and Patched....and I changed it a little so hopefully she would like the result....
             I made one traditionally for Nick and Tegan, that they sadly never received it, somewhere lost in the post  but I will redo it so they have one for next year and one for Glenn and Sarah that was more contemporary. As they had a black christmas tree and blue/silver decorations, so it took a bit of thought but hopefully they liked the result.
             Hopefully I will be more productive and have something to show you, Thank you for reading my blog and ramblings.......

            Have a lovely Day and Enjoy it all    :-)

My grandson FELIX was born on the 24th August 2011 sadly he did not take his first breathe and so became my beautiful little ANGEL.. and I  am so very proud of Nick (my son) and Tegan for their love and strength given to each other........
