Anni's New Book

This arrived in the mail today, I was on a pre-order list at the shop. It is just divine, lots of lovely quick and easy projects; all related to bags. A fantastic book for gift ideas! Thanks so much Anni for all your creative ideas!

This is a treadle clock that Aunty sent me a few weeks back. She is collecting miniture sewing machines and Treasure (her boyfriend) suggested sending one to me. What a lovely surprise it was! I have photographed the clock where it sits, on the shelf near some FQs. So lovely to look at.... Thanks Aunty!
Aunty is making McKenna Ryans 'Back to the Farm' quilt in classes, have a look at her posts about it so far.

Also in the mail today was Down Under Quilts magazine; and while flicking through got a big surprise! There on the page with random photos from the Royal Easter Sydney Show was my mother-in-law watching a beading demonstration!
This week I have been machine appliquing Little Macca's Farm. It seems I put together the main centre block but did little stitching on it, so I have a bit of work ahead to get this one done as it is a large block. I have also done some machine stitching on a not quite finished block for my Harvest Home Sampler quilt; and have finally picked up the needle again to work Gardeners Journal stitcheries. There does not seem to be enough hours in the day!

Agggg stop telling me about new books.... I have a rule this year. It looks lovely.
Now I love that little sewing machine. Isn't Aunty sweet.

Like Fiona I've told myself I really can't get any more books until I've made at least one thing from each book that I already have. But then, I always think that quilting books are like travel books, lovely to look at and read, but you don't necessarily want to go there. I'm tidying up my sewing room today, as it was in such a mess that I couldn't get on and do any sewing.

Still catching up on comments from when I had not internet. LOL. I've now popped into Anni's and have a copy of the book and a small purse frame. Just have to choose a fabric now. I love the little sewing machine. It looks nice and cheerful in among your fabrics.
