A tiny sneak peek at the quilt I finished today.
Lots of Dazzle Dwhirls and some small McDazzle texture:
I will show you the front in a few days.
Here I am showing “Tea for Two” to my sister Barbara. She’s thrilled to bits with it. Do you remember this was my first real quilt on Mr Nolt?
Barbara is getting married in November. They are having a Western themed wedding. Here I am trying on Cowgirl hats.
These are actually real cowboy hats from Dallas Texas. A tad big I think. Hmmm I look a bit serious about it don’t I?
Sweet Peas met at our house today.
Andreena has whipped up another lovely Christmas Advent Calendar.
Debbie was lucky enough to have a Lil Blokes quilt kit gifted to her. She’s busy stitching away at the blocks.
Once again we have had a lovely sharing time with like minded souls.
………with the Dolly quilts. I popped them side by side on my machine and played!
This one is called “Rock me Dolly”
How about this for flower power?
This one “Good Night Sweetheart” It has lots of freehand hearts on it.
TTFN and GO THE ALL BLACKS!!!
………..to make you get your knitting needles out.

Just let me finish this row darling is calling for knitters to make cosy jumpers for little Blue Penguins that have been caught in the Rena oil spill.
I wonder if quilted coats would do?
This happy little flock live on the top of the dresser in our sun room.
The funny thing about them is they have been gifted to me or culled (read op shop find) from someone else’s flock. They look very happy don’t they? The yellow and gold ones look like they migrated from Texas.

Hi di hi
Oh dear I have been neglecting my blog!
It’s been a very busy week here, what with bathroom renovation and making friends with my new machine buddy.
Today I have been sewing 2 more Dolly quilt tops.
It’s been such a glorious day I have had the studio/garage open to the great outdoors:
Today is set up day for “Quilt Taupo”. It’s all looking good. We have some fabulous raffles and spot prizes. It’s going to be such fun.
Mental note “Must take camera”
Catch you later tomorrow –I hope to have some show and tell from Quilt Taupo for you.
