Waiting.... waiting.....

Yes I have been waiting and waiting..... what for you ask .... well we changed plans with Telstra for our home phone and internet of course what happens then....... it got all messed up and we were on a go slow for the internet so no posting for me lately... but its all good now at last.

I'm here now to show my lastest project .... its a "Hatched and Patched" pattern by Anni Downs called "Sewing Angel Toolstore"  I not only love it but I needed it too so its now in full use and working well. Its been great to do a smaller project for a change.






Great little pockets and its so user friendly.


I've also been working on a String Quilt, Laurel our blogless friend made one and it looks fabulous, she has inspired me to get one done too. We have a blog for our little group so if you go here you will see her lovely quilt. I've also decided to call it " The Frugal Quilt" as I'm using scraps of fabric, half empty bobbins and cotton reels, I'm also trying to make a few blocks every time I sit at the machine to do other things so progress will probably be slow.... well not too slow I hope.



I'm leaving all this on the floor next to my machine to keep me motivated.



                                          Till next time ..... Happy sewing.

Such a pretty Toolstore Helen - it's turned out so well. String quilts are great - I've made a couple but they don't seem to have made much of a dent in the scrap basket.

I have this pattern also. It is a lovely design and yours has turned out beautiful. Maybe I should move it up higher on the 'To Do' list. Great idea about the string quilt. I think I should keep that in mind.
