I have started appliqueing the stars and hexagon rosettes for the basket quilt.
I did a little auditioning but have decided to just take the next one off the pile and place it in the next position, I am sure it will come out in the wash so to speak.
Following on with my addiction with hexagons, I have been covering some 1 inch hexie papers using only the French General range of fabrics
I have another purse on the go
This is another Brigitte design, now without revealing too much I think Brigitte and Kathy are cooking something up for the Sydney Quilt Show so I don't want to spoil any surprises.

This morning was a beautiful sunny Autumn day just perfect for a walk along the bridle path, I was quite taken by the shadows along the way, they looked like zig zags, in fact they are the shadows from the trunks and branches of the gum trees that line the walk.

All of the episodes on the dvd are shot in the South Island of New Zealand, the scenery is spectacular not to mention the food she cooks.

Well I think that accounts for some of the time I have been missing. Thanks to all of my readers that have left comments and enquired to my where abouts I do appreciate them, hopefully as soon as this study is behind me things should resume to normal.
To Sharyn and Marlene in Melbourne thanks for the gentle nudges I hope this suffices for the time being.
Lets hope the time thief takes a hike for a while.
until next time
Happy sewing, knitting, stitching
