 Here is a sneak peak at one of the blocks of the quilts I am making for my twin Granddaughters.I am using the Birdie fabric from moda and it is looking great.
 This is Henry my youngest grandson with his mum Leonie ready to blow out his 1st birthday candle. We went to the farm to help him celebrate and also had a great Mothers day bush BBQ with 2 of my DD`s their families and lots of friendly country folk.
 We went for a walk and the girls climbed the sheep loading chute. They are left to right Hayley and Chloe my twin nearly 4yo granddaughters and Emma, Henry`s 3yo sister.
 This is the back of my cushion. I  know it should have been the second of the cushion photos but I always forget which one to upload first.
This is my cushion and it really suits my lounge room sofa. It is made using the fantasy flower die that I bought to use with my GO! cutter from accuquilt . It is a great way to cut applique shapes and get them perfect. Dawn from As Sweet As Cinnamon is an agent to sell both the dies and the GO! cutters.

In March I attended a quilt sew-in in Hobart, Tasmania with several great designers and we stitched and sewed several items. We also did a lot of sight seeing, shopping and chatter amongst ourselves. It was a really fun time and in 2013 it will be held in Adelaide.

 This wall hanging was taught to us by Designs from Fee and Is one I had to finish aws soon as I could. It now lives on the wall in my lounge room. It is called Plant A Pot of Friendship and Fee taught how to paper piece the border around the pot. I found it a bit challenging but was glad I persisted and finished it.
My new baby is a Janome Horizon and I have had my Ruby for 5 daysnow and she is a dream to use and purs along very quietly.I have started a cushion and small wall hanging and will show you when they are finished. Got to go now as I am going to a quilt show before going to sew more of my Gds quilts at Dawns home, more on that later.
