Spinning Pinwheels Complete!!!!!!!!

Ta Da.............
Stayed up far too late last night but I have finally got my Spinning Pinwheels Quilt finished. I made it at the Cottage on the Hill a few years ago and was going to quilt it myself, even had it stuck together but then saw sense and decided to send it to Betty. She has done a beautiful job. (I was worrying about catching material on the back if I had done it.) I am giving it to my son for his birthday in a few weeks – he will love it.
Not the best picture as it is quite breezy outside. Leave a comment to let me know what you think.

Also included a picture of my hibiscus which is flowering madly.
Back to the bookwork……..

Parcels in the mail!!!!!!!

Yesterday I received some charm packs in the mail. Moda Serendipity and Moda Sonnet Collection. I haven’t brought charm packs before but they are a great way to look at a range you like without going to the shops which are tooooooo far away.
I also got Moda Peas and Carrots for a bit of fun, they looked good on the net but now I am planning to buy more but 1st trying to work out what I am going to do with them. I really like them. Throw suggestions my way if you have any. I might get some fat quarters in them. Here is a picture of them. Not the best pic but you get the idea. I got them from here.

I received in the mail today some 1930’s materials that I also got over the net at Bear’s Paw. This is easier shopping then I thought. Just some bits to ad to my collection. So when I am ready and work out what I am going to do I will have them. I really like the blue material on the bottom. I got extra of that.

That’s all for now. Have to make a library bag for school of the weekend for my Little Princess so will post again then if I manage to get it finished. She did take a bag of her brothers this week but I don’t know if that will be acceptable to her for next week.

This is what I got in the mail yesterday. Will only have small shot of the quilting but when I get it bound I will show a big pic. I was so excited to get this back. I want to give it to my son for his birthday in a few weeks. The quilting is stars and cloud puffs. Beautifully quilted by my friend Betty.
That's all for now.

This is the last thing I finished to send to be quilted. Just a sneak peek......

Out there!

Lost this post twice!! Starting a new adventure and driving myself insane trying to get blogger working the way I want! Not necessarily how it is supposed to work but I am getting there.

A view from my office window to start you off! More later!
