 I was one of the guest designers at this years Lets-Get-Stitched held at Adelaide Shores Resort. It was a great weekend with lots of fun, games and laughter. This is the pattern I supplied and it is a child`s treasure box made with template plastic and layers of fabric sewn together.

 These were the first two I made and my Grandkids have laid claim to them already.

 Here I have made my doily/coaster pattern in wonderful apple fabric as a gift for my sister. There are 4 placemats and 4 drink coasters and I am sure you are going to love them.

 Hubby and I will be taking Chloe and Hayley our twin granddaughters to the wedding ceremony that their parents are a part of so I have made them a horseshoe each to give to the bride. They are made from real horseshoes so she will get a shock when the girls put them on her arm. LOL

This table runner is also for my sister and it is made from Dawn`s pattern that she presented at the Lets-Get-Stitched weekend.
After all this sewing and writing the blog I am in need of a cuppa and a rest, so bye for now Jude.

 Hi all, I have been busy helping Dawn with the last minute tasks for the LETS-GET STITCHED retreat at Adelaide Shores Resort and now it is over for this year. I haven`t done the projects yet but I will get to them and then I will put them up for you to see. but I did go shopping on our quilt shop bus tour. 

 Some fat quarters I needed to finish my Life is Beautiful quilt. Very Yummy.

 The charm pack on the left is the one I won at our games night and it is my kind of colours and I love it, just need to find the right project to make. The one on the right came in our goody bag and by golly there was lots of treasures in there as well as a bottle of South Australian wine. Cant wait till next year to do it again.

 This the fabric I have purchased to do one of the projects and I am eager to start it.

And last but not least is my cute little pin cushion that i finished this afternoon for chookeyblues Stitch-a-long and I just love it so much I am going to make another( can never have too many pin cushions now can you). Must be off now as DH is taking me out for dinner and a movie after a meeting with the council.
Cheers Jude
