monsters galore!

 Lots of monsters have been appearing and I have been loving bringing them to life. All of them are done and now to arrange them on a background.

While shopping at Spotlight this week I picked up a clearance fabric that will look fantastic as a background. I am debating whether to put aside the cream background and go with the cream and black.  the fabric was only $10 a metre but there was 40% off so it came down to $6 per metre and the rest of the bolt came home with me!

See what you think...






Block two of  Baltimore blocks done. Loving working on these.


I received a beautiful Email this week from a very sweet Lady called Pam that lives in the UK.

She paid me such a beautiful compliment by saying one of my projects had inspired her to make the same style quilt, and how much she enjoyed my posts.

 Thankyou so much Pam, your email made my day.

Blogging gives you the opportunity to make that extra connection rather than just a 'like' .  That's why I started blogging really, way back when ... as it was a great way to connect with other inspiring crafty people.  A lot of whom have become face to face friends as well.

School holidays have started so stay tuned to more regular posting, fingers crossed.


Happy sewing
