I can't decide whether to frame mine or turn it into a cushion. This post hasn't helped as they all look great.

I love the skates. Unfortunately the only ice for me at Christmas will be in my drink! Or maybe that's a good thing.

It's spring! The there are lots of flowers and I have just looked out the bedroom window and there was a family of kangaroos. The mum had a joey peeking out of her pouch.

I love doing embroidery as it enables me to wind down after a stressful day at work. It is also portable so I can take it anywhere.

I love making little sewing accessories. A needle book for every project. The little gnome is sooo cute. What a great Christmas present it would be for me. :)

I love doing redwork. I have just finished stitching redwork blocks for "Its a Red Work Christmas" by Rosalie Quinlan. I did the redwork on the train travelling to and from work over the last 18 months and pieced the top in my recent holidays. I have uploaded photo into Flicker. I have just started a new redwork project on the train. It is the patterns I collected as part of the Gidday Quilters Shophop earlier this year. I have also up loaded the first block into flicker.

Hi all. I always find it a delema when transferring designs. I have used fadeout and water soluble pens in the past with disastrous results. Marks returning after a number of years and can't be removed. The new frixion pen gives nice fine line but not if you are using a pellon/interfacing material as a backing as you have to iron it on before you trace. Someone from my quilting group used the Frixion pen, remove ink with an iron as directed then put in freezer and the lines reappeared. Ceramic pencils need to be washed out and they are not very fine. I usually end up using a pencil or pigma pen, however these require careful tracing. it would be great to have an easy way to transfer line. Will lookout for transfer eze.

Hi Bari, I was taught to do bullion roses slightly different to yours and always ended up with an extra loop. I can't wait to try you method as it eliminates this extra bit. I to have been doing much better french knots after watching your tutorial. My sampler is looking nice. Can't wait for more. Thanks

I have just read your story on welovefrenchknots and followed the link to your blog. Happy Blogaversary, well done for blogging for so long. I started last week and I am still learning how to do blog things. I loved the little owl block pattern. I will be making this block soon. I have a friend in my quilting group who loves owls. I will have to make her a gift. I look forward to following your blog.
I have recently found quiltmania at my local newsagent and love the different designs it contains. Very different to those in Australian mags. I always have to have a quick flick through mags as soon as I get them. I then have to force myself to read from front to back and not jump around. It is easy to miss things if you jump around. I have tried to read without flicking first but can't resist the temptation.
