Everyone loves a hand me down

I made this quilt for a dear friend for the birth of her 1st baby eight years ago, it is now being used by her 2nd little cherub. I wonder how long this quilt will last. Will it be handed onto future generations? Do you ever wonder what will become of quilts you have made.

A Stitching Affair

I bet there's alot of stitchers out there who would love to spend 3 days with Helen Stubbings and Gail Pan in the most gorgeous surrounds. Well you can, next June, in Tarraleah, up in the Tassie mountains. 4-5 star accommodation, stitching around wood fires, eating fabulous Tassie cuisine and maybe even spending a bit of time in the spa! Well if this sounds like you checkout The Stitching Affair  . Numbers are limited so you can imagine you'll get plenty of time to chat to both Helen and Gail plus you'll get full kits for all the projects. I'm going, hope to see some of my blog friends there too!

Three little blackbirds...

...not baked in a pie but in a nest in my backyard. I'm lucky to be able to watch them grow a little more each day. These babies are now 6 days old and snuggly warm, Mum must be off looking for food.
