I know I said.....

I  know I said no new projects but........
I have been waiting for this project and sitting on ordering it, a sort of cooling off period, to decide whether I really wanted to do it or not. I try not to impulse buy just because I saw it on a website. So I committed as I really like this new design by Helen Stubbings. It is a block of the month but it isn't a big quilt. Finding the grey fabric actually pushed me to make a decision as I think it will look lovely on the grey. The other fabrics are from my stash, the lovely blues and pinks were my Christmas surprise from Els so I am happy to have found a project for these lovely fabrics. It will be similar to an old fashioned sampler and it has Hexagon flowers appliqued in some of the sections. Of course that was another tempter!
Another arrival in the mail this week was this block, once again from Helen, to be stitched and sent on to be made into a quilt for flood victims. Mum received her block yesterday too and had finished it by the evening. I will have to get a wriggle on and then we can send ours together. Fiona from Bubzrugz will be receiving our blocks to make up into a quilt.


well had best be off, have just had  a call to see if I could help out a friend by working with her for the day!
A friend in need, is a friend indeed...
hope everyone has a wonderful weekend..
cheers

It's not really a new project if you've been waiting out a cooling off period ... that would be my excuse anyway. :) The colours are lovely.
I'm also umming and arring over a BOM

Have a lovely weekend.

There are just too many wonderful things out there just begging to be sewn. We will all have to live until we are 110. I love your mew projects.

That is a lovely design and will look gorgeous when made. I can see why you committed! :-)

Not long now and I will be jetting off to sunny (hopefully) NZ! I fly out of UK on 22nd Feb.

OH, it is so hard to not start a new project.

Beautiful projects are hard to refuse. You don't want to live with regret! And it is a very beautiful quilt - I popped over to have a look at it.
The little Qld stitchery is an important job. Good on you.
