A Day with Di

Today I'm heading off to the first day of three days of classes with Di Ford Hall, I am very excited.
Today's LINK is to this lovely little Pinnie Pennant.  I think it would be a great little gift popped into a birthday card for a sewing friend.
Enormous thanks to Heidi from Fabric Mutt for sharing it with us.

Have a wonderful day

Feeling proud...

...of my dear Sammy.  The Diamond Valley Railway does so much to support the local community and they received an award in the Australia Day Awards which Sam collected, as he is the president of the club.
They have their annual night run coming up and it is always so much fun. Please pop over to their website for more information.
Sam has purchased a train for Henry to drive, such a lucky little boy.

Another LINK to a super cute pattern today.
I think she is totally adorable.  Many many thanks to everyone at Molly Makes for sharing her with us.
Hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend

Hexie Attraction

Hexies, I just can't resist them.  A couple of my friends have ordered this book and today I succumbed to the temptation and ordered it from The Book Depository.
Hopefully I'll end up with a wonderful quilt just like this one made by the ladies at The Quilt Shop.

Now this is CUTE in capital letters.
If you follow this LINK you can download the pattern and tutorial.  Enormous thanks to fabulous Xanthe at Wife Made for sharing it with us.

Hope you enjoy a wonderful day,

The cutest little tin

One of the things I did while I was on my blogging break was to go away with a group of my gorgeous sewing friends for a stitching retreat.  Actually it should have been called an eating, chatting, sewing, laughing retreat as there was a good deal more of these activities than stitching. These women are a marvellous group and we all get on so well, united by a love of Di Ford Hall's quilts.
(As you can see, we are not that good at selfies, but I promise you we were all happy.)

We stayed at the beautiful Mill Rose Retreat, located next door to Millrose Quilts in Ballan.  Quite a few of us bought the sweetest little decorated sewing tins and here is the one I chose.  I just love it.

I've been looking for some projects with a Spring theme even though we are heading in Autumn (Fall) here.  I thought this one is really sweet and I hope you like it too.
I found it at Thimbleanna as part of an Aurifil blog hop back in 2011.  Please follow this LINK if you would like a copy of the project.  Many many thanks to everyone involved in sharing it.

Hope you have time for some stitching today
PS A big happy birthday to my dad.  By my calculations he is 22 and a bit.  His birthday is February 29th so we always celebrate it on the 28th

The bees are starting to buzz

I've not been stitching much lately but I do have a sweet little bee in my hoop at the moment.
It is from Kathy Schmitz's lovely book Stitches from the Garden and destined for my Di Ford Hall bee quilt.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner so here's a lovely little love heart project which I thought you might enjoy.
You can find it by following this LINK to delightful Pretty Fabric and Trims.  Enormous thanks to Sarah for sharing it with us.
Hope Monday brings a week of happiness
