Sunday Sundries

Jack Frost has ben a bit tardy arriving this year but he has finally arrived in style. Our front garden this morning. Brrrrrrrr

Frost June 6th 2016

Anyone for frozen hydrangeas?


This morning tucked up cosy and warm I prepared for a morning of sewing and sharing with Tracey who wanted to learn how to foundation piece patchwork.


We both stitched a heart and after Tracey left I made my heart into a mug rug.

I keep forgetting to show you a Kiwiana quilt that Peggy made and I quilted.

Peggy's Kiwiana quilt 

Isn’t that an interesting pattern?


Sixteen patches and pinwheels. Simple but very effective.

….and look at this Pacifica backing – perfect! :

  1. Brrr, indeed, but so very pretty.

    Love all the quilt photos in this post.

  2. We have had mild frosts every day for a week or so now, about ZERO early on, Is the room your lounge, quilting room, I didn't see the long arm. Lovely curtains and roman blinds, and your sewing cabinet with that huge extension, a super set-up, and naturally 2 furrballs to complete the picture.

  3. so the frost has arrived and here it is glorious sunshine no doubt the rain will come soon! Envious of your sewing room looks so inviting, have just seen the granddaughter quilt you quilted so beautiful and lots more you have shared too you have been super busy

  4. Hopefully we won't be getting frosts like yours up here! Lovely quilts and quilting and lovely kitty photos as a bonus!

  5. Like the look of that peek at a vintage quilt...intriguing. Of course you must have furrers. That New Zealand quilt is lovely. I like the way it give you lots of different designs.
