There's a Party Going On

This weekend I'm going to find some time to join the Chookshed's 2nd Anniversary and somewhere in between I'll put up a post about the fantastic trip I had to the US with Helen.

Stitching up a storm!

This past couple of weeks I have been stitching up a storm! With 3 little projects, lots of 1/2" hexies and some brand new fabrics I whipped these up in no time.
Pretty Pouch
Pencil Pouch
Zipper Pouch
All 100% designed by and fabrics created by my friend Helen Stubbings, Hugs 'n Kisses.
The fabric range is called Primrose Sands and not yet released, it's so pretty.
So what next? More stitching but this time embroidery. See you when I have something else to show you!

Hexies and Gail Pan Swap

Our online sewing group held a "Gail Pan" themed swap, this is what I received from Kez of Willowgrove Quilting, perfect mini quilt for my table stand, Thanks Kez x
and this is what I made for De
I also sent her a little Gail Pan kit and a chocolate.
This week I'm getting to play with these yummy, soon to be released fabrics designed by Helen Stubbings of Hugs 'n Kisses called "Primrose Sands"
So far there's lots of hexies being made....
and they'll be turned into her Hexie Club projects ready for display at Spring Market. Not long to go now and then we'll be jetting off to the US!

In a nutshell

Last week I completed a snugglybug block, this one is for a very sick boy,
I hope it gives him strength x
Gotta love Peppa Pig! Even makes grownups smile :-)

Yesterday I worked with Helen styling rooms with quilts and cushions for her new book, here's a sneaky peak taken on my ipad camera.
Helen is so inspirational, she always has something new she is working on and her style evolves and changes in between visits, there is always something new to see. Can't wait for our trip to the US in May, we'll have a ball!

And today I came home to a package from Lucy Locket.
Awhile ago I made a mini quilt for Lucy, you can see it here, and today mine arrived and I absolutely love it, cool spools, it's going straight to the craft room wall!
Lucy also sent some other lovelies, hexie pincushion and some great pieces from her stash.
Thank you Lucy, don't ever doubt your creativity, it's a great example of who you are, special xxx

So that's my week in a nutshell, I'll tell you about my day job another time, it's been sucking the life out of me lately but I will survive!

Stitch With Me 2014

We had a lovely day yesterday at "Stitch with Me". I decorated the tables while Helen set up shop
and her girls got the kitchen humming and created some delicious treats! Love those cookies!
All the ladies got into it quickly, including Helen sharing many hints and tips.
It was lovely meeting some new faces and catching up with many I have met before.
Everyone had a lovely time
And best of all they ended up with fun projects to complete.
Hope to see you all again next year!
