Homework is done,

I am off to Toowoomba this weekend for my classes with Sue Ross at  Precious Times shop.  This is a beautiful shop, staff and town, you must visit. Lisa has a lovely blog also with pictures to admire.

So this is part of my homework for class completed.  It was not mandatory but I certainly needed to get this quilt to this stage for myself.

I have had to applique the circles to the backgrounds, then applique all the scallops on each block.  Each block has 4 scallops and there is 9 blocks, that makes 36 I had to do.  The past couple of nights I have sewn the sashings and blocks together and got the last of it done last night.

The pictures look washed out, it is very overcast here with no chance of changing in the next few days.

The next step is applique borders, they have a vine, flowers and leaves. Yay more applique, more poor fingers.....
My other homework that will be checked up on, is not completed.

BOM Rehab

Well another week has gone by and I am still focused on my BOM's, yes plural.  Alas this week though I only got the applique completed on Block 2 of Merry Merry Snowman and not the embriodery bit.

I did spend most of my weekend sewing presents for my older sister, Chrissie and my Mum (Mother's Day shortly), but I can not show you just yet as family members may be reading this.  But also just in case I don't get them finished they will then know what their Christmas present is.

I am linking again to Sinta at Pink Pincushion for the BOM Rehab, check out all the girls work and give them some encouragement.


And here is a pic of my lovely Camilea, before the rain came and destroyed the flowers.  Good thing there is alot more buds to open. I am so proud of myself for not killing it, so far..

See you ....
