Flaunt for Friday

I haven't flaunted for the last 2 Friday's as what I have mostly been working on, Is a challenge quilt for my Sewing Sisters group so no pictures of that till after 8th Of Dec I still have a way to go.

Iv'e started a new quilt called the Farmers Wife and at this stage am doing block of the week with a yahoo group. so I have done 4 blocks. It is a sampler quilt and the blocks are 6.5 inch so a bit bigger than dear jane which I am still doing as well. IMG_3616 IMG_3618 IMG_3617 IMG_3586 These are the  four blocks I have done so far .

These are a couple of dear jane blocks I did

IMG_3610 And whats wrong with this picture

IMG_3614 Well Nothing really apart from the fact The fat cat Kimba is sitting in the box with my Dear jane Blocks. This cat weighs 6.5 Kg so its a tight fit. Naughty pussy cat.... cute tho.

Yesterday I went to Brisbane stitches and craft show , Lots of lovely eye candy and some amazing quilts in the Queensland Quilt show. I bought some things = Bali Jelly roll and fabric for a class we are doing with the Gold Coast Quilt Guild next Tuesday, also some new scissors, and a gorgeous pattern called Fancy Pants for Miss Talula.

This afternoon I made up the pants and will try and finish the Top that goes with them tomorrow, but I have to do house work this weekend YUK visitors  from New Zealand next week.!IMG_3619 How cute are these .! I made size 12 months , as I made a size one dress from the same company last year and it still dosn't fit her and she is 17 months..... but they look small. Oh well I may have to make some more.!  Fancy Pants is the name of the pattern.!

Oh my quality control officer squeezes into small places too.. last week it was a paper carry bag that barely fitted a pair of shoes in, let alone a fat fluffy devil..

You've had a busy week with the sewing.. my week? um not much happening on the sewing front!
