At Last

I have at last got back to some sewing. We've had such a fab summer that I just was out and about making the most of the sunshine. Things have cooled off here now so my thoughts are back to sewing again. 

I'm plodding on with my texas stars and have using the Ardco templates for these blocks.

Next I have been making a new hunters star for one of my beds in my guest room.
Just a border to go on and it's ready for the quilter ( not me) LOL !
I use Deb Tuckers Rapid Star ruler for this. It's fool proof and if you haven't used one of Debs products they make life very easy for you. 
Not sure the colour is showing terribly well but it's duck egg blue.

Finally this arrived yesterday. All I can say is it's fabulous!!! I tried to read it in bed last night but it's to heavy to hold while propped up. More serious reading is required. If you love chintz this is the book for you. 

Last but not least i know you all love an update on my little munchkin. This is her last week at Birdland. Oh she loved the penguins, I think if given half the chance she would have been in with them . 

She's Growing like a weed.
Till next time.

  1. Your little munchkin is beautiful!! My kids just love penguins too :0) Your projects look lovely! the fussy cutting you've done for the stars is so effective.

  2. Some lovely fussy cutting going on with your stars and the Hunters Star is going to be a lovely addition to your spare room. Abi certainly looks like she is enjoying the penguins.
