Lucy update......

Here she is so far...... "My Friend Lucy" is growing... 
The missing section is now sewn in......
I have 2 blocks I want to sew onto this and it will go away until I have all the fillers done and Lucy blocks with the extras ready...........then it will just go straight together........
Working on adding the cream sections onto the blocks and making fillers....... 
More cutting and gluing of cream and blue to do.......
probably a 1000 to cut and glue yet...........
If you're making Lucy to I would love to see your progress no matter how big or small......

Major crisis averted......

Thank God for Sonia....... I had searched high and low in the lounge room and Chookshed......
Not once but twice........ Seriously looking and starting to stress that I had lost some of Lucy.......
I text Sonia as I was sure I had it when she was here.....she suggested the design wall......
I went straight out and there it was ......
 Now my design wall is big and this is all that was on it and I didn't even see it...... Seriously back to being a lounge lizard, even watching a movie "Lion" and hope my brain returns....... Obviously when your not well you 'have a boys look'......
So relieved......
In between emailing these pics and starting the post I watched the movie.......
I've been listening to the book reading by Saroo Brierley A Long Way Home  each morning on ABC radio.........I saw the movie version called LION in the shops the other day so brought it..........what an amazing story........I had heard a 1 hour conversation on the ABC but OMG to watch the movie.......I spent 1/2 the afternoon crying...........but so pleased I watched it.....
Catch you later....

Life.............

Life is whirl wind...........good but OMG busy..........
so much fun catching up with Susan@Oh2Sew and Maree@Stitched Australia, Fiona@BubzRugz and Kris@TagAlongTeddies.........
The food is always great at the Park House Cafe...........
After food and chatting we went and checked out some patchwork shops.............
This is the range I got for a friends 50th birthday quilt.........

Combined with grey (first time ever for me) should look "blokey" enough I hope...........
Car pooling......
Few more bits.........sashiko, possible Lucy fabrics...........all paid for and waiting for the girls and..........
I found these beauties...........OMG fussy cutting heaven.........I got all 3 colourways as I could not decide what I loved the most........probably Lucy2 but maybe Lucy...........in all honesty probably got enough fabrics for 3 Lucys.........but I am not going there..........

To say the fog was thick was an understatement................when I arrived it was so thick it was difficult to find my way around.........it lifted but by the time I came out just after dark it was settling back in..........looks cool in the lights but hard to drive in when it got thicker.........

So impressed to see so many young people doing Relay for Life............we didn't stay all night as not prepared enough but the girls walked the whole time they were there bar about 15mins when they ate dinner...........

Fairy Girl was playing with the new camera..........LOVE this photo..........
Rainbow on my way home.............
cool clouds.........

Catching the last light.........
so surprised this turned out so well...........it was almost dark.........
Now for a few restful quiet days as the sore throat that's been hanging around for weeks now is NOT getting better and i've had another trip to the Drs........
Me and the lounge are going to be besties for a few days........
Catch you later.......

More Lucy........

No 5 was the winner in the Lucy options....thanks for your opinions as I was so undecided which one I loved the most.......hence why I made them into my new header photo.......
The other one had been kicking around in the Lucy tin part done for months and took about 20 mins to finish off.......
These will be going into Lucy2......Hope to have a picture of the actual quilt progress soon.......I realised I have done another filter row and started the next row since I showed you last......

Catch you later......

Scizzors and cutter set......

When Miss Sonia @ Forever Always Online was here I brought this great Klasse scizzor/cutter set from her stall......
the love heart can be worn as a necklace and has little grooves down the side near the bottom of the heart to cut thread..........great for travelling......
It's  so pretty in the box I haven't taken it out yet...........
Catch you later......
