Nervous Nelly

Yes I'm a little nervous at the moment. I've been playing with my blog ... some tweeking to do yet but this will do for now.

Deliciously Red Friday Night

Last night was Friday Night Sew-In. After a long day in town and a late dinner, I finally managed to sit down with needle and thread in hand.

I was able to complete Block 4 of Red Delicious while watching Nicholas Cage in 'National Treasure'.

How did you spend your Friday Night?

One Flower Wednesday Blossoms Galore

Have you noticed that the month of June will have 5 Wednesdays? Here is a recount of the first 3.

Yesterday was Patchwork Day for our little group and we were extra lucky to have a workshop on fabric flowers. We managed to make one of everything required for a very pretty wallhanging. Now for more flowers, leaves and buds.

Then after watching MasterChef last night, I settled down for the Rugby League State of Origin with needle and thread in hand.

This red hexie flower is for the second Wednesday which I had to finish off on the Thursday.

My purple hexie had a slow start and was actually made on the Saturday but I'm counting it as my one flower for the first Wednesday of June.

While on a flower theme, this is my first Zygo plant to flower this season.

Don't forget this Friday Night is the night ... Friday Night Sew-In.
Will you be sewing?

Circle of Friends and My First PhD

Along the blogging path, we are able to make many new and wonderful friendships. Miche'le of By Hoki Quilts is one such blogging friend. Miche'le says "If you too feel that we all belong to a huge circle of friends why not copy this button and post it in your side bar"... so that's what I am doing.

Waaaay back in January, my blogging friend Myra of Tactile Pleasures set the challenge to complete some PhD's by June 30 (Projects Half Done) and I put myself down for 3.

Now with only days to go until the deadline ... I would like to share my first PhD. (the pale blue is the bedspread underneath)

'Pond Play' is now a finished flimsy to be stored away until such time as the quilting bug comes calling. Quickly onto PhD number 2.

My aim is to get all my projects that are laying around in pieces up to being finished tops by year's end.
