i have decided for patchworkers, that making my 5/8 inch hexagons and all the patterns is like playing with lego !
of course this week i have also been watching television till late into the night and into the very early morning ! the queen's diamond jubilee celebrations in london has kept me up and stitching ! and the tin i am using to house all my covered hexagons seems very appropriate, purely by accident !
so i am having fun, and the fun will continue into next month. a friend is having one of those big birthdays, you know the older we get, the bigger the birthdays ! i have organised a quilting party weekend and this is all preparation for those special 2 days.
this tin full belongs to another friend, sharyn and the following two photos are those shapes put together by the birthday girl herself, we are all enjoying the preparation.
and you all know how i often say i am spoilt, well spoilt again i was when this new book arrived in the mail for me
this is a lovely new book by brigitte giblin and is very inspiring, i personally love the way that so many of the quilts really showcase the fabric choices.
looking forward to making some of these
you see the queen was in my living room along with the other members of the royal family, and i also loved seeing the australian crews in the surf boats on the river thames ! oh how i would have loved to be in london for these last few days of celebration
i also want to let you know about a new business in hobart, tasmania
i recently bought some dish cloth cotton from the stash cupboard called 'sugar n cream' , i have not used it yet, but it is really beautiful cotton thread. go and take a look at what they have available ! not related to me in any way, just nice to do business with !
well away i will be to cover some more hexagons !
