UFO Photos as Promised

Raining and cold in Qld (yay) so hubby had to cancel cattle jobs today so I get to sew (that is why I said yay). Thought I would firstly take photos of my UFO's and post them before I sat down to sew. The above photos are 'A Quilters Journal' designed by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched. The fabrics I used are 'Gatherings' by Jan Patek. Will post photos of Home Sweet Home in separate post. regards xo

New to Blog World

Well, here I go, this is my first attempt at blogging!!

I have started this blog to attach to my store so my customers can see what I am sewing, what fabric I have purchased and (I am ashamed to admit) what fabric I have found (cause I forgot I even had it).

At the moment I am on a little UFO (unfinished objects for those not from the quilting world) campaign. When we recently built our farmhouse and moved house, I found a few stitcheries I had forgotten about so decided I needed to finish a few quilts that I had put aside.

My first UFO was 'A Gardeners Journal' which is a lovely book by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched. I have finally finished the quilt top, quilted in the ditch and bound the quilt. Now it is cooling down in Qld I am going to do a little handquilting on it (with running stitch) Will post some photos soon.

My second UFO is Home Sweet Home by Blackbird Designs. I have just finished the 9th and final house block and am now about to start on the borders. The photo is Block 4 called 41 Thistle Hill Terrace from this lovely quilt. Will post more photos soon.

Online Store - I am working on two new bags at the moment. Fabrics are Woodland Delights and Freebird by MoMo so will post them in the store soon.

Well had better sign off and get back to sewing.
Kind regards Robyn
