Sewing in the sunshine

It was a beautiful day in Melbourne yesterday so I grabbed an hour to sit in the sun, in my favourite spot.  This is what I stitched.

Last Friday I went into the craft show in Melbourne with Christine and had a fabulous time.  I was quite proud of the restraint I showed while shopping, here's me with my little bag of goodies and Christine with her much bigger haul.
I'm actually not quite that virtuous as I had a spend at the Patchwork Teahouse the week before and my parcel from Michelle at the Raspberry Rabbits arrived that morning.  And you can cram quite a lot into one tiny little bag.  Here's what I bought.
11 fat quarters, 2 note pads, 1 snowman hanger and a very cute pattern + some lovely trims I forgot to photograph.

Here's this month's White Rabbits logo for everyone who finds making a To Do list useful.
and here's the code


When I saw the heading...  How to make an easy quilt in one night. That is impressively sneaky...I had to head over and take a look. 
It is so very clever.  Here's the LINK to a fabulous video tutorial at the DIY Dish. Huge thanks to Kim and Kris.
