A Giveaway

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  I'm one of the people who was very happy to see the end of 2016...not a good year but 2017 is going to be so much better.

I've been playing around with the look of my blog.  I change its look every year and this year I thought I'd go for a softer, more vintage look.  I'm not sure if this is how it will be in the end as I must admit I love playing around with the colours, buttons etc.  Hope you'll hang in there with me as this year's look evolves.

Last Friday I spent a fabulous day out and about in Melbourne's north east visiting quilt shops and eating delicious food.  Here's where we went, just in case you are ever in Melbourne and want to take the same trip.

282 Wingrove St, Fairfield VIC 3078, Australia 
GJ's Discount Fabrics
31 Steane St, Fairfield VIC 3078, Australia

The Quilt Shop
2/38 Bridge St, Eltham VIC 3095, Australia

Petty's Orchard
1 Homestead Rd, Templestowe VIC 3106, Australia

I had the most wonderful day with Christine, Ann, Gail, Allison, Carol and gorgeous little Angus.  Thank you all for making the day so much fun.

I have two lovely panels to giveaway as a thank you for visiting my blog.  One is for followers and one is for anyone.  I am happy to post anywhere in the world.  Just leave me a comment on this post some time in the next week.  I'll announce the winners next Monday.  Please mention if you are a follower and whether you would like the bear or the owl.

I bought these panels from The Quilt Shop in Eltham. If you love these panels as much as me you can buy them from the shop.  They sell online and ship overseas too.
Here's a LINK to a charming project to start the year.  It is very kindly shared by Bev at Fabulous Flamingo Toes.  Thank you so much Bev.
Wishing you a week filled with wonder

No Fuss Christmas Swap

I've not gone in many swaps this year but I couldn't resist The No Fuss Swappers Christmas swap.  I had to send my parcel to gorgeous Teresa from All Things Vintage and I loved making for such a lovely person.

We had to send a mug rug (I did put a rod pocket on the back of mine so it could be a mini quilt too) Christmas mug, a small sweet treat and wrap our gift in a Christmas fat quarter.

I heard from Teresa today and was very happy to hear her gift arrived on time and she liked it too.
This trio of Christmas cushions is absolutely gorgeous
If you'd like to make one or two or even all three please follow this LINK  to brilliant The Red Pistachio and you will find out how.
I'm off today for more Christmas feasting with Christine and Helen...lucky me.

Hope you enjoy a peaceful day

Happy Tuesday

We have a new baby in the house...baby Essie.  
Henry's old car seat was sitting on the floor in the family room ready to be sent off to The St Kilda Mums' recycling baby goods scheme. Essie spotted it and decided she is the littlest in the family and so the seat should be hers.

There's been lots of eating going on lately.  The Argyle's had high tea on the Sorrento to Queenscliff ferry on Sunday.  Lots of fun and a great price too. Highly recommended if you have a friend or two visiting Melbourne.

And I couldn't resist showing you the hamburgers John and I ate at Spitfire Grill in Rye.  Even greedy us had trouble finishing them.
I love everything with strawberries, whether it is to eat or to sew so I couldn't resist sharing a LINK to this charming project.
It is very kindly shared by the very talented people at Fort Worth Fabric Studio.  Huge thanks to everyone involved.
Have a wonderful day.
