What a

wet Friday today has been!! We have had rain on and off all day, sometimes quite heavy rain!! So nice to be inside sewing and just watch out the window!!
miserable looking day!!



But  I am happy sewing away....

watching/listening to Love Actually....


Love Rowan Atkinson gift wrapping!!

I knew there was a good reason for having the island bench!!! Perfect for putting the layers of the quilt together!!! Just the right height so I am not bending!! Now for some quilting inspiration!!

In the meantime I have succumbed, and finished off a pin cushion...then I found some left  over squares, so what was I to do????
Happy sewing.

How lucky to have got some rain! It has been raining up here ad well, but not at our place, soon, hopefully.
You are such a busy person with your quilts - I do love what you are doing! and you can never have enough pin cushions either!

We've had two days of heavy snow falling (so far)! Just as good as rain when it comes to a reason to stay inside and stitch.

It was wonderful to have all that rain but it certainly made it a staying inside dat. Lovely sewing.

Rainy days are my favourite. Especially when you can stay home and sew.

It was rather dreary here too and so humid. Great idea using your bench. I did that only once that I can remember. I think you need to visit Pincushion Makers Annonymous.

I always get distracted by scraps. It drives me crazy sometimes because then I don't get my project moved forward! Your finished quilt looks great!

Looks like you had a very good day, not bothered by the weather at all.

What fun! More pincushions! We're having those same kinds of days in Knoxville. Fortunately, there were a couple of sunny ones in between the snowy and rainy ones, and it warmed up a bit this weekend! I love that island counter that's perfect for your Aussie Hero quilt layouts! BTW, I think you are right about the origins. It sounds to me like everyone responded enthusiastically over there, though.
