Its happened so fast!

Good morning, hope you are well on this lovely Monday morning. I opened up my laptop this morning and was amazed to see that I have exceeded 200 followers. Hello to all my new friends and lots os love to all of my older friends, I love sharing this sewing corner with you all.

At the end of last year I had just over 50 followers and in about 6 weeks things have really grown around here. I love my followers, your comments always bring a smile to my face, its lovely to know that I have people to share my makes and my projects with (rather than just my husband who very sweetly pretends to be interested but just doesnt get my need to make, and definitely doesnt understand why I NEED to by more fabric!)

Anyway so what Im trying to say is Thank you, for being here and listening and encouraging and bringing smiles to my face. So for all of my lovely followers I think I better organise a giveaway to show my appreciation. I will have a think and get back soon with it.

I better show you some of what I have been up to

Practice block for the 4x5 bee. A tutorial for a similar block will be up later today. Love the scrappyness and simplicity of this one


Scrappy strips ready to become blocks for the 4x5, havent my hive chosen wonderful colour combinations


5" squares in strips for the start of a really simple baby quilt, I had this lovely flannelette that I picked up in Australia and thought it would be lovely for a quilt for a baby girl so I choose all my fabrics around this backing

Bunting for a baby girl, this is a late baby gift as she is now about 4 months but oh well, better late than never.

I used a zig zag stitch and a variegated thread, I quite like how it turned out, more interesting than my normal straight stitch

And a solid rainbow log cabin baby quilt, started a long time ago and finally finished and given. I love this one and its got soft snuggly train flannelette on the back. Another late baby gift as this little munchkin is now 6 months




Can you guess that Im trying to finish off lots of WIP's before we head off to Oz, more will be appearing soon!

Head back later for the scrappy cross block tutorial and dont forget tomorrow is Tutorial Tuesday so hopefully some of you have something to link up.

Congrasts! That rainbow baby quilt is so pretty! She would not be able to appreciate it so much until 6 months or older, anyway...
