Last

day of the week already, this week has gone by so quickly! This morning the Supervisor and I had a walk along the beach
and he had a swim...

on our way back home we found some interesting mushrooms, these ones look like fairy umbrellas when they open up

Last night I sewed up a few stars

today I did manage to find my list and then decided to do something different, this might be a challenge or might not...the Gisborne Girls might know.

I did put some sashings on a panel for a baby/child's quilt, and would you believe it the wadding I have is just too small!! Might have to do some cutting and patching, but that is ok as Fiona showed how to do this on her blog last post. 

I have also been doing some browsing in books as the Geelong Patchwork and Quilting Guild have an exhibition in November and the challenge is to make a dolls Coverlet, so I am looking for ideas. It is a good excuse to look through books I have in the shelf that have never been used!
Also next month is the GPAQ Quilt In day, which should be a great day
Hope to see you there.
Happy sewing.

This week has gone by quickly! Glad you found your list! You probably have just as many things to add as you do to cross off.

You have been very busy. Love your stars and I am quite intrigued with what you are making with those pieces ready to cut out. LOve the baby quilt. I have the book on the right but I think they are 12 inch blocks. I must see if I can scan you some dolls quilt patterns I have. ( If I can find them LOL )

Love those blocks and the book, would look great in a miniature crib quilt if you can shrink some of the blocks.
