Big Thank-you to Jenny for picking me out in her giveaway, I won Tilda's Sew Christmas Homestyle Book. It's certainly bought a big smile to my face.
Edit: Nearly fogot to mention A Little Bird Told Me's 1 year Blogoversary and Giveaway so bloghop your way there and say gidday!
Update on DS, he's still home, he's now on his third round of antibiotics and trialling cortisone cream on his legs. His face seems to be getting better but his legs haven't improved much. If there's no improvement by Friday he'll refer him to a Dermatologist....I feel my purse getting lighter and lighter each day!

So to all those Mum's of young teens, make sure you get your kids to tell you about any sores on their bodies and keep an eye on them, they can turn quickly into something much worse!

It's a huge room and it's a bit cold in here during winter so I don't normally sit in here in the evenings but it's a great spot in summer as it stays at a pretty constant temperature.
One day the fake wood panelling will be replaced with lovely white painted walls.
Now remember this little sneak peak I gave you, well pop over to Helen's and you can see the finished quilt in all it's glory. I stitched 6 of the circles and Helen did all the rest. I don't know how she manages to do everything she does, she's a pocket rocket! You also get a chance to name her second quilt, it's more beautiful than the picture depicts so make sure you check it out!

Since my last few posts were a bit pictureless I thought it was time to show you what I've been working on.
I'm lacking a bit of contrast in the bottom blocks but I don't care as the fabric is gorgeous! The fabric range is called "Blessings" by Moda. If you're looking for it then head over to Mother's Cupboard!

Cathy had come down from Launceston and stayed at my place, her poor DD was concerned that we might be axe murderers; a product of being told not to talk to stangers and be careful on the internet, you never know who you are talking to. Cathy and I had met before at other Quilting events so we sought of new each other well enough. We also met up with Fiona and Ange there too!
We had a choice of participating in either two of the Mystery Quilts or doing our own thing, a last minute decision and an email to my mate Fiona and I had the fabric to do the Traditional Quilt.
Well we cut and we stitched, ironed, chatted, ate, shopped, we cut some more, played some games, won some prizes and stitched more, ate even more and we still didn't manage to finish the quilt top in the 12 hours. I also had to spend time unpicking pieces due to a lack of concentration on my part...gggrrrr. I was totally knackered by the end of the day but it was worth every minute!
It was an awesome day, MissM and team did a fabulous job keeping our bellies full and I believe the proceeds from the day has made a sizeable dent in the $6K that she must raise to enable her to go to Namibia.
I plan to finish my quilt next weekend soI'll put a picture up when it's complete!
