Yes!

....I've been sewing!!

I've just finished the last circle on this quilt.


I'm half way through binding this quilt...

About to piece together these pieces of fabric to make the backing for a long neglected quilt top.

On the weekend I'll be finally using this pile of fabrics that has been taking up a corner of my cutting table for ages.

And slowly but surely making progress with my starry hexies.

Meanwhile in the garden signs of Spring are appearing...

The first daffodil !


And hello pretty blossom!!

So as you can see I may be a bit quiet on the blog but I have been springing into action. I'll have some finished quilts to show soon!! Yay!!

Terry said...

The colorful blooms and the glimpse of your diverse stitching suggest lots of eye candy soon. I'm waiting.

Busy girl! I am intrigued about that pile on your table that you are going to dive into this weekend.

Mary said...

Wow! Love the sneak peek of the quilt! I can't wait to see more :) And good for you clearing up some of those long awaited projects. Daffodils are so welcoming...glad warmer days are upon you. Especially since it holds the promise that mine will be getting cooler! LOL

You are a busy bee -- and a tease for just showing us little snippets of your projects. They all look luscious!
My mind still grapples with the seasons Down Under. Is it a little early for Spring flowers?

Colette said...

Wow you have a lot on the go, all those grey fabrics look very interesting...

Heather said...

Oh lots of lovely goodies. I can,t wait to see more and I am happy to see that I am not the only one with many diverse projects on the go!

I'm a bit odd like that, I love winter in Adelaide and I always get a bit sad when the days get longer and the blossoms start coming out. Probably because I know it won't be long and it will be scorchingly hot, maybe I should move to Tassie!

Sasha said...

Gorgeous gorgeous little sneak peaks!!! Oh and those flowers!!! They are so pretty!!!!
I can't wait to see your finished quilts! I know they are going to be amazing!!

That's not fair, only showing teeny tiny peeks. You have been busy, can't wait to see more.
It was really warm here today, 27C A teeny tiny peek of spring, but it's supposed to get cold again tomorrow.

Sew Surprising said...

Im now exhausted after seeing all you have been doing BMD :) Spring most certainly motivates you :)

Barb said...

Such great things going on. And you are such a tease! I want to see it all. But I'll be patient. I love that pile for a quilt back. Such fun prints, especially that pink flower and is that a Kaffe applique print? I think I have that in pink.
have fun - or should I say continue having fun!

Barb said...

Erk. I know about busy - I have just had two weeks off work and I've been flat chat with the in laws! But now I have a bit of time to sit down and think about what to make next and get a quilt ready for its trip to the quilter - my first professionally done quilt!

Karen said...

So much activity! I can't wait to see your reveals. The flowers are so pretty. i love pictures of pretty flowers. At the bottom of this post was a link to your old post (before I followed your blog) about your commute. I loved reading it. I sit with a group of ladies in the morning and chat too. In the afternoon its a different group.
