Promising start to 2012.

Happy New Year everyone! What a great start to the year I've had...
we've (hubby & I) cleaned out the shed, taken a huge load to the tip....
 I have pulled everything out of my linen cupboard and put most of it back all neat and tidy... it looks so good...strange how you get excited about a tidy cupboard but thats me??
the bedroom downstairs is ready for visitors and I have even had time to do some sewing, I will post some pics soon about what I'm working on....
 First I will show you what I made for the "B" gift for our sewing/embroidery group......




a Blue Block roll with a BlueBird in a Birdcage......
now as it turned out the lady that got this pressie was my mum who was very excited because it was something that she needed.... 

the other exciting sewing news I have is a bit belated.... I could have shown you this back in mid December but I didn't have any pics or time to actually post about it ......


I have finished piecing my Gardener's Journal .......sorry about the photos I will try and get a better picture of the whole top, if you pop over to the stitch-a-long blog you will see more photos.....

Sheryl your block roll is lovely. Good on you for getting your GJ finished, I still have got no further than the stitcheries!!

This is such a beautiful quilt! I am in awe of anyone that can do such a beautiful job - I'm afraid the most I can usually manage on my machine are curtains and cushions. Thanks for the inspiration!
