Woo Hoo! A Finish @ FNSI

 Finally, a finish!
 My Happily Ever After Sewing bag. 
This is from Gail Pan's "Patchwork Loves Embroidery" book.
 With the needle case and pin cushion I made earlier.
 I continued stitching today at our NOTYQ guild meeting.
I can feel my mojo starting to come back!
Thanks to Wendy for hosting us last night.
You can see what others stitched here.

A Finished Quilt!

I finally had a finish last month but didn't get a chance to show you! 
So I'll put this down as an early October finish.
This is the baby quilt I made for my flower girl, Michelle's baby shower. 
Lovely and bright. So out of my comfort zone!
 I just quilted around the squares.
 Found this great fabric for the binding.
Krystina (right) and Michelle were my gorgeous flower girls.
Here they are all grown up at Michelle's wedding last year.
 Meet Madelyn Christina. 
Born about two weeks early on 30th September.

Friday Night Sew-In and a Quilt Show!

 Once again I didn't get much stitching done. I stitched the label onto the 2nd prize raffle quilt for the coming North of the Yarra Quilters Quilt Exhibition. 
Thanks to Wendy for hosting us. 
You can see what other's got up to here.
I've been pretty busy with the organisation of the show as I am the convenor. 
But everything is coming along smoothly. 
Only a couple of weeks to go now, so there's lots to do.
If you're looking for something to do on the 6th or 7th October and am within travelling distance, come along. If you do, please let yourself be known.
 Just ask at the door and someone will find me for you.

OPAM for August

 Has anyone seen my mojo? 
It has been gone quite a while now! 
Another month with no finishes for me.
I've almost got a finish so there'll be one for September. 
Just got to stitch the binding down on my baby quilt. 
The baby shower is next Sunday so I will definitely have a finish.

Thanks to Peg and Kris for keeping us inspired 
(although it doesn't seem to be helping me at the moment!).
Hi Everyone, it's Molly and Rex here.

We would like to thank everyone who voted for us in the Pets On Quilts Show.
It was a fierce battle between us and the cuddly Sheltie, Teddy Bear, 
snoozing on the purple quilt!
Teddy Bear won the battle!
So that means we came second.

Woofy Hugs,
Molly and Rex
