Friday Favourites




I also wanted to show this wonderful pieced block but Silort has opted out of BHL so a link it is.

I won, I won!

This awesome bundle arrived this week from Kaelin. I won her blog giveaway at the Plaid Scottie, thanks so much Kaelin!

To top it off Kaelin's in my hive for the 3x6 and sent along my block at the same time. Here's a close up of the zigs and zags - I love it.

Friday favourites - late edition

It's been a long, tiring week with some late nights at work so I'm soo happy to be on the couch with Mr Posey (I'm sure he'll love that moniker), the cats, flickr and trashy renovation shows. I'm too tired to create tonight but not to appreciate some yummy eye candy! Click the picture to see the links to the photo owners. Blog catch up tomorrow, I have some lovely loot to show!

Happy Mail

It seems that I've been too busy sewing and receiving packages to blog! I'm so behind on reporting on my good fortune. The loveliest mug rug and goodies arrived from Laurraine/Patchwork Pottery.

I really loved this when Laurraine posted her design and it's just so perfect! I know that Laurraine thinks it's funny that it's on my wall but no mugs are ever going anywhere near it - especially ones with tea in them, tea stains! This is soo perfectly designed and made that I was excited but not at all surprised to find out that Laurraine has been featured in one of my favourite quilt books, Quilts Baby! Go and visit her blog, everything she makes is just gorgeous.

I also received my pincushion from Jessica/quilt happie.

Really cute, and it's Jessica's own design - I'm going to have to try it for myself. That little owl needlebook is living in my hexie organiser.

I'm sitting out the current round of the Scrappy Mug Rug Swap and have been busy sewing placemats and circle blocks. Maybe I did learn my lesson about taking on too much? I'll let you know when I finish my 36 geese for the 3x6!

All rugged up...

I'm finally coasting along and have had a whole weekend of slacking off and only sewing what I feel like. It feels like mid-semester break used to at uni. I guess it feels even more like a holiday because it's my month in the Bee Seam Piecing Downunder bee and all I have to do is oooh and ahhh over the pretties being made for me. I'll enjoy it while I can because I'll soon be back at it making placemats for the Placemat Swap, my 6 blocks for the 3x6 Sampler Quilt Mini Bee and my normal bee sewing.

I had quite a few finishes in September including the mug rug I made in the Scrappy Mug Rug swap.

 I had so much fun with this swap and the little rugs are so addictive. And just because I've made so many things for other people recently that aren't pink (ok, so my pincushion was mainly pink) I put this together for my own mug rug.

I love the colours in this one and I'm really pleased I chose them for my blocks in the 4th quarter of the 3x6. I can't wait to see what everyone makes.

Swap September

Pincushion - ready to go, originally uploaded by LilyRose0.1.
This month has been such a big month with so many things to sew. I'd like to say I've learnt my lesson about taking on too many things but somehow I doubt it!

I sent off this pincushion to my partner in the Scrappy Pincushion Swap today after making another one for her to choose from last night when I got home from work. I really hope she's going to like it - I just feel like I've missed getting her right with this one even though {big hint} this was the one she chose. But there's a difference between "I'll have the best of two I don't really like" & "I love it".

On the other hand I just know that my Mug Rug Swap partner is going to really love her mug rug. Pictures later.

Friday Faves

Just a few of my favourites from round 9 of the Doll Quilt Swap. There were so many more that I loved.
