I'm back!

Im back for a quick hello and catchup.

My daughter has been very sick, since January with an as yet undiagnosed illness that has all the hallmarks of Lyme. Still waiting on the very expensive test results. So that's why I have been quiet. I've literally had no time to scratch me bum!

But anyhow, Im able to snatch a few mins here and there now, as she seems to be doing a bit better, so here I Am, back for one hell of a Show and Tell :))

This is just about everything I have been up to since I last posted.

The Anni Downs Natures Journey SAL.

All that's left now are the borders for this baby! 

Gail Pans, Merry Xmas Garden BOM.
Round 3...... Lol
This is the 3rd time I've changed fabrics and started this again.
I'm liking it a lot better now. It's better not to ask.....hehehe

I have all the appliqué completed for block 2 now just to piece it altogether and onto block 3!

Karen Cunninghmas Sundial Sampler has been getting some attention also.

Only a few more blocks left for the centre Square. This is such a special quilt.

And a new addition thanks to Karen from
The Brinton Hall quilt by Leigh Latimore from Quiltmania107 and 108.
I Ran like a Fool into this one ;)

These are the last hexies left to go around the centre panel. Then I can appliqué the whole centrepiece to the background fabric and move on to the second and final instalment.
This quilt is just gorgeous and there was no way on earth I could say no ;)

And who can resist baskets?
I started making these and just intend to keep making them as the opportunity arises, and in a few years, hopefully.....I will have a quilt out of it.

And that's it folks, that's what I've been up to, and enjoying every minute of it.
Hope you all are stitching and keeping busy.
Till next time,
Kel. X


  1. Welcome back. I am tempted by the hexies. I even took a workshop and bought a bunch of papers when I was in Australia in April.

  2. Looking good and glad I found your Blog! I am also working on Brinton Hall - doing it in Asian and Batiks.

  4. Which pattern are you using for the baskets and what size are the blocks? Thx

  5. Wow! Such gorgeousness...loving all your projects...You've done so much of Brinton Hall already! I've been hanging out for my Quiltmania to arrive (my newsagents is an issue behind) for Leigh's quilt and it was instant swoon, it's on my "list"...hope the results come back with a conclusive answer and an effective treatment...

  6. Everything is so pretty! I'm so excited to see your Brinton Hall quilt. I'll be watching your progress. Hopefully Quiltmania 108 will be in my mailbox soon so that I can continue on with the quilt! The little basket blocks are adorable. I've made a couple of them and will cut fabric from scraps and prep the applique so I can work on them when I don't feel like doing anything else!

  21. I was cured of HIV with the use of natural herbs that I ordered through Dr Itua Herb store I love Traditional Medicine so much. Most times, injection and drugs are just a waste of time and money. I was cured 3weeks ago, i suffered from HIV for 5yrs but with the help of Dr. Itua herbal medicine, I was cured within three weeks of drinking the herbs he sent to me through courier delivery service. This same man also cured my Aunt from herpes, as soon as I heard she had herpes, I referred her to the doctor and she was cured after drinking his herbs.I have referred more than 18 persons and they were all cured from their various illnesses. Have you taken herbs before?. You have spent so much money on drugs,injections,surgeries etc and yet you have no good result to show for it. This man is a herbal doctor, I assure you of cure if you drink his natural herbs. He has herbs that cures Hiv, Herpes, diabetics, asthma, hepatitis, etc. Contact Dr. Itua on email:
