Lovely weekend

It's been a beautiful weekend here.  The sun has visited us at last and it really feels like summer.  School finished for the younger kids as well.
I finished my block to send away for the Cead Mile Failte quilt for the quilt festival next year.  Here it is
I used a piece of lace that I had to make it look like a sleeve on an old style blouse.  The rings are a yo-yo and some gold thick embellishment thread that I had.

I also got a parcel in the post with some items I'd ordered. Here they are
This is the superior frosted donut with bobbins of 39 colours.  Really good for applique.

I can start using some of my scraps to make fabric flowers with these templates.

I also got some machingers (gloves for free motion quilting), a pattern for a jacket and a fabric glue stick.

Here is a photo of my box of hexagons to make flowers for the Hexagon Vignette blog.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.



  1. I love your little hand!!! I haven't made mine yet as we're going to do them with our first meeting of the Western branch of the IPS. I have to get a few ideas together!!

    Isn't the sun lovely? Hope you're enjoying every bit of it :)

  2. Great little block. Very cute :)

  3. What a creative little quilt! I like the details that you added-the lace and the gold thread look super.

    You're so organized! What a great way to keep track of your hexagons. Enjoy your new thread.

  4. You will love the machinger gloves...I can't quilt without them! You are so organized with your hexagons!
