Even though it is officially AUTUMN down under we are still having lots of days over 40 deg Celsius. It is just so nice to go for my morning bob with the ladies.


Not much sewing this weekend but did manage to finish my applique row on my SAHR. Will do more embellishing when I quilt it.


Can you see I am one spool short ??? Can’t find it anywhere so will have to make another before I start on my Braid Border.

and I have also joined this……..  BINGO..


Should be fun.


  1. stunning quilt Maria,i hadnt noticed the missing spool until you said.xx

  2. I love it , great idea for the applique and don't think I would have noticed the missing spool right away either ,just wonderful!

  3. I had to search for where the missing spool goes too! so lovely, can't wait to see the next border

  4. Your quilt is looking great! You have put alot of work into it and it will be stunning when finished.

    I was just jotting down the colors so I could go and find some fabric for my BINGO card. Sounds like fun!

  5. Looks good and great to see your progress!! Good idea to combine the appliqué and pinwheel/hour glass round! (I've finished my pinwheels and am now thinking about the appliqué).

  6. Oh My Gosh - your applique is so wonderfully appropriate!! Such a creative genious. I wish it was warm enough here to go bobbing in the ocean. BUt Spring is coming....

  7. Love that quilt!! You do great work. I had to search for the missing spool. I would have never noticed.

  8. I heard there was another heat wave down your way.... nice to have the sea close enough for bobbing.... love the quilt - just great.. and I wouldn't have noticed the missing spool either... but not you have mentioned it!! glad to have another bingo buddy...
