A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block. I share with you my patchwork & quilting, knitting, paper crafts, cooking and life in general.

Quilt Top.

Quilt top made from Churn Dash blocks and hand pieced.

Pulled out this quilt top this afternoon.  I'd started this project many moons ago.  In fact I'd forgotten all about it.
Last night my fingers were itching for some hand work to do.  All my 'night time' projects (that is, hand worked pieces), are finished.  I don't know what it was that jolted my memory but whatever it was, I'm glad I've found it.
The colours in this quilt top draw me in, I love the patterns that they create.  This same pattern was used previously in a quilt I made for our very first Great Nephew and I loved it so much I decided to make another using different scrappy fabrics.  I'm already planning a third!
The quilt top was hand pieced and it's now ready to have sashing added, a border and of course the usual binding.  I will keep you posted!

Other projects READY to go:
  1. A hat for my Grand Daughter (I bought a hat pattern today...which also includes a dress pattern, so I guess I'll be making a hat AND a dress).
  2. A pair of  linen capri pants for myself. (I also bought the fabric for these today which I've laundered and have waiting to press and cut out.)
