Been a bit slack

I have been a bit slack on the blog I have had a bit of a slow down on the sewing front as I am having a big clean out and then I got a cold which turned into an ear infection.  Thankfully the antibiotics have done the trick and my ear is much better.

The cleaning results so far are six bags of clothes gone.

Hundreds of magazines in the process of going.

I have done a bit of secret sewing which I will be able to show next week.  It is in the post at the moment.  Sometimes secrets are hard to keep.

I have been to the Geelong Quilt In.  I treated myself to some fabric which I couldn't resist.

I have already cut it up and am in the process of sewing.  The quilt I am making is called Down South by Peta of She Quilts Alot.  Peta also has a great tutorial for the left over half square triangles.  

This is what I made for our Gail Pan swap.

This is what I received from O'Faigh.

It is a bag for your iron and then you open it and can use it as an ironing mat.  I just love it together with my board for building blocks so all the pieces stay together and button tin.  I just love the fabrics so me.

Until next time happy stitching.
