Flip Flops or Thongs ??

Whatever we call them I loved making the Bonus Block for The Splendid Sampler designed by Jacquelynne.

It has been freezing here sew making this block warmed me a little. :)




The yellow dots reminds of the beach sand and the Thongs ( I'm an Aussie ) of warmer days...


Happy Stitching..

Nice Mail and FNSI......

I was delighted today to receive my No Fuss Swap parcel "Clayton's Christmas" from my partner Shez..





Couldn't resist opening the parcel







and look at the pretty wrapped gift inside... Now I have to wait for 7 sleeps before I can open it...





Don't forget ladies to pop over to Wendy's to sign up for this month's FNSI... It is a great way to get some stitching done with our cyber friends and go and visit them to see what everyone made...
look firward to spending an evening with you.....

One finish for OPAM in June..

but what a great one for me....I was determined to finish my "Aiming for Accuracy" for this month.

I joined Michelle from Quilting Gallery in July 2013 for "Aiming for Accuracy". I got all the blocks done and sewn into a flimsy in October 2013 for our Patchwork Group's Quilt Hanging.

We had a display to show folks how to make a quilt with some ladies cutting out fabrics, others sewing and  A4A  sandwiched and pinned...

Well the pins have been in the quilt since, for 32 months, I am surprised the pins didn't rust.... Sew you can see why I am delighted to have the quilt completely finished ready for our next triennial Hanging in October this year....




thank you  Peg and Kris for  keeping  me on track with OPAM each month......

Happy Stitching...
