Scatterdays The letter T

Today is the letter T
Categories are Tasty, Tiny, Terrifying and Threads ...

Tasty = Taco's yum a favourite Mexican style dinner
Tiny well this one was easy for me this is tiny the turtle one of four that we have I put him next to a 50c piece so you can see how tiny he is but he has grown already
Terrifying would be being chased by a Tiger ! I just love Tigers and have spent hours watching them at Dreamworld.
Threads now that's easy I have rather a large collection of all types of thread .

Thanks for looking at my scatter days for the letter T

Rearrangement of my Studio

I am lucky enough to have a big room just for quilting but I still seem to have to much to fit in , so I decided to move things around a little ? I need access to a design wall so have moved my quilt frame across the windows. I have my main machine and an over locker and another machine and cutting table in the middle .
These pics are of some of my room

Mojo Come Back

Well I seem to have lost my Mojo a little .hopefully now I have found Bundaberg Quilters it may come back. I am used to going out Twice or 3 times a week to different sewing groups . I went to Bundaberg Quilters last week and joined so am starting to do some regular stitching again. After the devastation of the floods it makes you realise how lucky we are not to have lost anything like so many others have. As a group we are now making quilts for family's who have lost everything in the floods . I have been using some of my many scraps to make quilt as you go blocks for quilts

The Journal

Do you know what this fruit is. ? the colour is so gorgeous bright red . Its a dragon fruit we bought them fresh from the markets. Not as much flavour as I thought it would have lots of little black seeds.


This is what they look like before you cut them.


My sewing from this week hand stitched appliqued clam shells another block done for Green tea and sweet beans .
