This is my eldest daughter Antionette on her Grade 12 Prom night a few days ago. She looks so grown up! Thank god she isnt going to schoolies week on the Gold Coast! At this stage she is unsure of what she will do next year but would like to go to uni and do primary school teaching.
My pride and joy! I love my new sewing machine bought with my hard earned money that was refunded to me from Johnny's accountant LOL I hope to buy another new machine next tax time! It will be a Janome 350E and its purely an embroidery machine.
See the cute bits organiser that hangs in front of my machine. It keeps all my gadgets close. I was thinking of making up a pattern for it and selling it on ebay but I am hopeless at writing instructions!
This is the second quilt that I assembled. I didnt make all the blocks just a few. It was made as a group effort for a special little boy by the name of Shannon Lawlor from Hoopers Crossing in Victoria. He had a very very rare form of cancer and unfortunately died in June 06. This blocks were sewn by a group of ladies from all over the world and then I assembled them. The quilt was then raffled to raise money for the cancer foundation as a thank you from Shannon. Sadly Shannon lost his battle before I got the quilt finished. Rest in peace little man.
Anyway I love to do patchwork and quilting. I currently have a few WIP's and only 1 UFO.
I am working on a Block of the month (BOM) from Patchwork Pumpkin www.patchworkpumpkin.com.au Its called Our Country Home. I am also working on a quilt called Weaver Feaver. I am doing it in pinks and greens!! I also have on the go another quilt which is by Jenny Haskins called The Colour Purple. It is designed to be done on an embroidery machine but I am doing it on my Janome 6600P just to prove you dont need an embroidery machine to do it. I am hoping to buy a Janome 350E next year.
So if you like quilting let me know! Send me a message.
