Well my auction is going very nicely thank you. It's now up to

Pop over here if you fancy my wall hanging and place a bid. You have to be in to win! The auctions are all doing very nicely and I heard today that so far they are up to $45,000 and we are only up to day 2!!! Isn't that fabulous?! If you click here you will be sent to the full list of auctions. Boy there are some wonderful items there. Please be generous and remember all the money is going to be used to help the flood affected Queenslanders.
I've made the four pincushions for the Sewing Caddies. They were fun and are now attached to the caddies. My dear Gran gave me $100 to use to buy the necessary bits and pieces for the kits. Isn't she a sweetie? I'll pop over to Spotlight with my little list tomorrow I think. I'll have four of those... four of these... oh won't it be fun!
I bought some very lovely fatties earlier in the week. Let me just go and see what the range is called... Modernmeadow by Joel Dewberry. They go beautifully with linen so my head is spinning with ideas. I also know that sewing with linen can be messy. Still if I use a simple design the fabric shouldn't fall apart too much. I hope! Perhaps some old linen cloths too? With pretty edging?
I had a couple in my hand and then thought, what the heck, and decided to just get the whole jolly package. They just go together so nicely and I can see such a pretty quilt in them.
Oh here's another wee quilt I'm working on. Nothing like a few things on the go aye? It's actually been stitched together since taking this photo and looking rather lovely. I think I need to make another row on the bottom unfortunately. Don't you hate that when you think you're done?
This is just a baby sized quilt. I'm just trying out new techniques and having a bit of fun. No I'm not having another baby! Although we did enjoy teasing the girls a bit!
Our ensuite floor got a bandage or two yesterday. Tomorrow, super duper early, the man is coming back to lay the tiles!!! Oh my, that's going to be so exciting! They are so lovely too. Nice and natural looking in an off-white colour. Gosh I hope I'm not still in bed when he arrives!
My mind is excited about the thought of playing with different techniques. I've seen this quilted hanging in the Australian Quilters Companion magazine and I'm keen to give it a go. You have to use water soluble paper. Never heard of it before.
And just in case you are wondering how the house is holding together with all this crafting going on...
well I think this says it all really. I cracked up when I saw Miss Barbie folding the washing, but then Miss Barbie 2 arrived to do the ironing! Fantastic!
These chicks aren't just beautiful, they're handy too. I wonder if you look that glamorous when you do housework?
