some stitching

I decided last month that i would take on a quilting project..the first one in a number of years. I picked a block of the month quilt...called little blue birds by Janelle wind .
so far i have worked throught two months of it. Im LOVING IT...didnt she just pick beautiful fabrics!

some close ups, i wouldnt say im perfect at patchwork, actually a long way from perfect, but im happy with it so far.

This was last months block, all hand stitching. it took me ages to do, and again its not perfect but its looking good from a distance.
This weekend ive been making frilly aprons for the market store (see the link in side bar)
I was playing with my new machine, and working on the finishings of something that is for sale. i wanted to hide the messy seams and stuff and the overlocker type stitch was great lessing the problem too. This is about a size 2 so probably good for a 12 months to 3 year old i would guess. or thats what im hoping as emily has one too. i listed the smaller apron for $18..:)

anyway im loving stitching atm, there are some inspiring people out there in sewing land thats for sure! i have so many ideas that i want to try now! and i would love to go to tafe and actually learn about sewing and making your own patterns and stuff. one day!

Just gorgeous Jacqui!

I was looking at the apron in your market stall early this afternoon. :)

So wish I could fit more things in my day to be half as creative as you!!

That tafe course sounds fun!!!

The patchwork looks lovely, and as long as you're happy with it, that's the most important thing
