Looking for the Sew Mama Sew Give Away Day post?

I’m joining with hundreds of other blogs and participating in the Sew Mama Sew Give-Away Day. My give-away is a totally hand-sewn pin cushion. There’s still time to join in so if you’d like to enter please click here. Good luck! Why not take a look around while you’re here?

Oz Bee Fabrics

My Oz Bee Fabrics for the January block for Emma arrived the other day. We decided that we’d make an early start and so Emma sent out her fabrics a week or so ago. Despite the fact that it’s called Bee in OZ we have a few international members and Emma is in the US so I’ve been waiting for the international mail system to bring me the goodies. I like these fabrics. I think she made a great choice.

She’s doing a black, white and red quilt but has given us free rein as to the block design.

I couldn’t wait to get started so yesterday I came up with this design.Not that this pic will help you much as some of the elements on the design are just construction lines.
Here’s what I’ve done so far. I’m hand-appliquéing using the back-basting technique. What do you think?


I got a lovely surprise the other day when I received a card and this lovely strippy heart from Sara a member of one the email lists I belong to. Thanks Sara. 🙂
