Love of Liberty Continued......

A gorgeous bundle of Liberty of London fabric arrived today from Kristine at Townmouse. Thank you so much they are so very gorgeous!

I've had a great day sewing. I will show some photos tomorrow of my latest quilt progress.

Pete's on his way from the airport after a trip to Sydney. He's just sent me a text saying that he's left the Japanese books he got me in Sydney, in the Qantas Club. Can you imagine how my heart has sunk? After some frantic text messaging - which I quickly ditched and started ringing, I wanted to check to see if he was joking. He had me stringed along there for a while, all desperate, disappointed and despondent. Can you believe he was tricking me!!!! Mean. New books - yippee!

The other day I was chatting to my younger sister and we were talking about our favourite fabrics and she mentioned she loved the Swell range and how she would like some. After finishing the conversation, I headed into my sewing room wondering which of the 10 projects I have going would I do today. Alas, I found a Stash and Dash bag (Amy Butler pattern) half completed in some of that same Swell range that Al had mentioned earlier. I thought I'd finish it and pop it in an express post package to surprise her and reward her as my most loyal commenter on my blog! Of course, to be fair, I will need to make something for my other sister . But first she will need to do some blogs to inspire us. Perhaps she could post about the latest quilt she's making or her latest vintage find or anyone of the beautiful corners or treasures within her stunning home. She has a really cool blue deer on display - with a great story to go with it.....perhaps she might post about that this weekend!

I am so jealous of your liberty. How nice that both your sisters blog!!!

I love that swell range especially in a stash and dash bag.

Have a good weekend.

Stash and dash is already housing some of my favourite goodies and in hiding in my beautiful bag you made me - which, I might add, always draws compliments. Loving it.
