Creative Update

Did you have a lovely mothers day? My daughters spoilt me and cooked me a lovely dinner and gave me some lovely gifts. I feel quiet blessed to have not 1 but 3 lovely daughters.
I have been pottering away in my little studio in the past few weeks doing a little of this and a little of that....... Above are the first 2 blocks from Jenny's Shabby BOM. I have really enjoyed stitching them and they look so lovely. I can't wait to see what she has instore for us next month. Jenny is designing some lovely stuff at the moment. Go and check out her blog.

Here is a project that I have been designing. I am waiting for some fabric to arrive to finish it off and then I can reveal it to you. It is from the Moda April Cornell range - "Spring Magic". I have used this fabric a bit lately and am really liking it.

These are a few other bits that I have made for gifts. Not sure of the names of the ranges but these were in the "Moda" mystery scrap bags.

This is my "Secret" box......... It contains a secret project that I am currently working on. This box will be getting my full attention tonight for a few hours - I will also be taking it to my stitching day on Sunday so look out Jo I am thinking I am going to need help with it by then....
I have so many projects on my wish list at the moment and need to find some focus. I think I need to make a list and put things in order and stick to it. Why is it that I just keep adding to my pile of started projects? And why is it that I decided today that I needed some more fabrics and ordered a total of 19 metres of various pieces? I think I have been hanging around with Lizzie too long - She is even more wicked than I.
Have a great week,

I love the April Cornell fabrics, yum! I'm like you, Fiona, I find a range I love and just keep using it for ages. :-) I'm like that at the moment with the "Flirt" range, and also my latest obsession, the "Celebrate Spring" range from Sandy Gervais.
The Shabby blocks are so beautiful - what lovely handwork you do!
I'm glad you had a lovely Mothers Day! :-)

Your Shabby roses blocks are gorgeous.. so crisp. Good to hear I am not the only one who starts more things before finishing. All your projects are looking very nice.

I am looking forward to seeing the finished project with the Spring Magic fabric. It's a designers gift to see what creative quilters and sewers crete with the line. Please let me know when you are ready to reveal. I'd love to feature you and the project on my Facebook page.
