With a profile coming up in a magazine that needs pics of 3-4 original works it really has my mind ticking over!
I've been working on two more WIP and making a bit of a dint in them. Unfortunately I don't have quite enough yellow homespun for the Sunshine in your Pocket quilt, and my car is off being fixed, so I won't be working on that one tonight...

But at least Kane is happy. Last night we were off to the creche family picnic and Kane always wants to feed and entice the ducks anytime we are close to them. A couple of minutes later we were crowded by other kids with leftover bread, and a lot more ducks!

Finished a little stitchery ready to make into another project, from the Red Brolley book "Tea with Friends"
Had a go at paper piecing from this cute project from here. It was so quick and easy once the fabric was cut out, maybe 10 mins to sew it up.

Luckily Cass from Snailblazer sent me this fantastic package as part of Katy's Swap! Three fat quarters, a magazine, ribbons, a pincushion and binding, all wrapped up in a recycled pattern and the sweetest tri-coloured string. Thank you so much Cass and Katy!
And with so many secret projects I though I had better give a bit of an update on my Calendar Quilt Challenge. Still going with the daily blue and brown blocks - except that they are being chain pieced each weekend. I'll get there!
Terrible floods, fires and deaths in Australia this weekend. Whole towns lost and a lot of the community need care.

Nearly all the project I am working on are secret at the moment so not much to show. I couldn't resist making these little tea wallets that are just so quick to do, and use 4 bits of fabric just 5 x 7". I would have made these 2 wallets in less than an hour.

I've got a couple of friends with babies due in July so I thought it might be nice to design a baby quilt for little boys. Another scrappy project!
