This is a piccie of block 1 & 2 of the Christmas Belles quilt that I'm doing with 3 mad (as in fun mad) crafty friends, as you can see I stuffed up when I cut out the centre stitchery of block 1 so I will have to think of something clever to add so its centred properly, I'm a dopey Dora, never mind all will be well in the end. I have decided not to buy any fabric for this project as I want to use my stash fabric only so hope it works out okay.
Well I have made a great start on my " To do list" for this year but I must admit that I started this quilt a long time ago and did have it layered and pinned ready for quilting but at least it is finished so the first job is done, here is a piccie.
This is my wish list of "to do's" for 2007. 1. Through the Garden Gate Bom by Two Country Friends COMPLETED 2. Gav's (hubbie) memories quilt COMPLETED 3. Christmas Belles by Mum's Moment, BOM with stitchy friends COMPLETED 4. Vintage Valentines quilt by The Vintage Spool also with the stitchy friends 5. Outback Star by Kookaburra Cottage 6. Tea with Friends table quilt by Bronwyn Hayes COMPLETED 7. Angel Story by Anni Downs COMPLETED 8. Old Country Wares stitchery by Rustic Country Wares COMPLETED 9. 2005/2006 Friendship quilts 10. Gracie by Rosalie Quinlan for my daughter... Heather. COMPLETED 11. Vintage Charm w/hanging by Candlelight Creations COMPLETED 12. Vintage Charm picture by Candlelight Creations COMPLETED 13. I have 8 projects from a "Stitchers Dream Day Out" I attended in September 2006, there were 4 designers at this day Bronwyn Hayes, Debbie Magee, Lynette Anderson & Leanne May, they each designed 2 projects for us to stitch and of course I havent finished any yet so they are definately on this list. 1 ... COMPLETED .... 7 to go. Not all these things are for me but they are certainly on the list of " to do's " for this year.
Phew I'm exhausted just writing it down so I'd better a move on and stitch like there is no tomorrow.

I enjoy lots of crafts but embroidery would be my first love followed closely by quilting, patchwork and the list goes on. I like to have a go at new crafts when I can. We have lived in Jimboomba QLD for 27 years. I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog.
