Monday Night Maddness End of Year

A pot luck picnic at the beautiful cobblestones. 
Each year we pick a project and make one to swap
This year it was bags 
Here's the one I made
And here is the one I  received

ANZAC Circles Update

The top is finished.
For so long I put off finishing this quilt and like most things you put off doing you end up really enjoying and wonder why you waited so long.
A beautiful sunny day spent working on a beautiful sunny quilt.
I made a few more blocks and pieced it together, thrilled with the result.
Now how to quilt it???????

Monday Night Madness #15

Only 3 of us tonight.
Mad me cutting out monsters. 

Mad S working on her yoyos.

For fun we had an ugly fat quarter swap.
Lucky me got the blue cat fabric.
Because there were only 3 of us,  we are doing it again next week.

ANZAC Circles

A few years ago I joined my first quilting bee.
A mix of Kiwis and Aussies hence the ANZAC.
We could choose anything.
I was inspired by a Christmas card I was given by a dear friend.
So fabric was chosen,  card cut for inspiration, parcels sent with very simple instructions - circles - any desgin, any size block.
Stupid me, it's worse than a jigsaw puzzle to put together.  
My advise - make a rule that all the blocks must be the same size or divisions of.
Nevertheless,  I have had a fun day in the shed today working on the lay out, just a few more blocks to make up.

The inspiration

Sunday Funday #2

Today I had the pleasure of my 2 girls in shed.
Miss C did some beading.  

And made this bracelet. 

Miss E got inspiration from tumblr.

And with a little help she made this purse.

After a bit of tidying I put a back together.

For this quilt.

In the meantime Mr G started work on the shack.
A new temporary home for our son.

The girls are looking far too comfortable in the shed.
It's my hsppy place, so as long as they are happy they are welcome.
