Progress Report

Migraines, sick children and house painting....... yuck lol
I would so much prefer to be sewing! I did get my eagerly anticipated Threadbear package though, Di Fords Mystery BOM, Mountmellick!!!

I made a start on it and here's what I have so far.

 I have also finished a few blocks on a little appliqué sampler quilt that is just gorgeous.

They are super small blocks and finish up really quick. It's given me a chance to use some other more country style colours as well. I'm loving this one right now.

Till next time.
Keep on stitching,

Soups On !!!

Soups on!

Lol, that's what I've been calling the Soupćon QAL with Karen over at

We've been working on a medallion with a hexagon centre. Here's mine at the moment .

It's been really fun and I love the pieced border.

I've also been working on my Heritage gardens quilt. I finally got all the leaves and Hexie flowers sewn down and am now working on the berry bunches.

It's really starting to turn out lovely, every little step takes so long though!

I joined in the fun at the to make the Benjamin Biggs BOM which is being offered by the ladies at

I have made my blocks smaller and went with a different colour scheme. I tried the red and green, but my stash is way too poor in these two colours to come up with anything that was pleasing. So I used what I have and I like it much better now.

POTC ( patchwork of the crosses) got the better of me and I whipped up a block In a day. 
Only 50 odd to go......   ;)

And that's it. 
Keep on Stitching,
