Back in the garden.

Here are my "One Flower Wednesday" flowers so far. All are made using Liberty fabrics. The centre blooms are the first of my orchids this year.


The weather has cooled off significantly here. We have had our first frost already.

I made this shawl a few years ago. It is very warm, but does tend to shed because of all the "fluffy" yarns in it.





This is my latest finish for the Morrell quilt.




Today I prepared the next pieced block.

I am still working on 3 more projects. Variety is the spice of life!!! lol

I have 15 Jacobs Coat blocks finished and 3 more ready to applique.

The next project using Kellie's raw edge applique method is almost ready to be quilted. Hopefully I will have a photo later in the week.

I have also started hand quilting my Cheddar Cheese and Crackers mini quilt.

So, lots happening here, but slow progress on each one.

Back to sewing.... :)

  20. You're super quilter! You have lots going on, I love it all. I made a fluffy throw once and it sheds and leaves wool on me so that wasn't very practical.

  21. Thanks for sharing on your lovely blog! Your hexagons are superb - I am a closet collector of Liberty fabric and I love doing hexagons too. But that fussy cutting takes a lot of patience so I don't often bother - you have inspired me ! Coincidentally I have just ordered the Morrell quilt pattern from Threadbear - and am trying to round up some fabric (they have run out of a lot of the lovely broderie perce fabrics :( Your blocks look wonderful - keep up the good work
    all the best
