Jule's Quilt!!

This week I have had the absolute pleasure of helping Jules with the final stages of her first pieced quilt!! Apart from a slight problem with the backing (my fault) its all gone smoothly. She calls this her "ugly" quilt but I think its gorgeous......makes u wanna snuggle underneath it with a good book and a cup of chamomile tea.

I want to share her lovely piecing, even though she will be crabby at me, cause I know when its finished she will photograph it so far away that you wont be able to see it lol!!

She has pieced the blocks all by herself and I think she has done a wonderful job!! Her seams all lay lovely and flat and its been a pleasure to quilt.

I wont show the full quilt......Ill let her reveal that on her blog sometime next week!!

Im hoping that this will encourage her to try another (actually I'll badger her too lol). She has done a wonderful job and Im so proud of her!! Well done sweetie!!

The recipient of this quilt is just going to love it but Im guessing that after its finally finished, Jules might have a hard time giving it up!!

A Time For Home

I can finally share the magazine project I was working on back in January. It was for the winter edition of Australian Country Threads and they asked me to design a cushion which included a winter quote. So here is my A Time For Home cushion:
A sweet little stitchery with a simple pieced border to add some warmth to any home over the winter months! It is always such a thrill to see how your project is featured in a magazine and I love how they presented it. This is the project page:

It must be so much fun to photograph these projects, they always choose such wonderful settings. And lucky me, it made the cover:

This edition is on sale from May 20 and it has some amazing winter projects to cosy up your home because........
.......we all need something to snuggle upon or under during those cold winter months, right??
