I finished my project quiltling challenge. Yay. I called the mini I made "A Little Blue.
I also finished a quilt top from way back called 9-patchtastic from Moda Bakeshop. I am hoping to buy a new machine in the next few weeks so I am going to put off any quilting until I have bought it.
It started raining heavily here in the early hours of Sunday morning and has not stopped since ( it is now Monday night). Luckily we are not in an area prone to flooding and just have to put up with very heavy rain for days and now strong winds. Last weekend I was in a regatta in Newcastle harbour and here is a photo of us during the race.

Project Quilting

I have decided to join the project quilting challenge at Persimon Dreams. I was being good and working on UFOs but couldn't resist. The challenges are open enough that you can make whatever you want but some rules to make you think. I love blue and purple but decided to use blue for this. On a bit of a blue roll at the moment!I pulled out a few blues
I also finished a long table runner which will go on my new shelving unit in the sewing room. And yes it is blue

A few Christmas Projects

I made this version of a modernised disappearing 9 patch with figgy pudding. I got the idea from St Louis Folk Victorian Blog
This is a christmas cushion I made using some more of my figgy pudding. I love this fabric and was saving it but I decided to just use it!
I made this mug rug for a friend who loves trees. I used the tree in a mug rug tutorial by the crafty quilter.
This table runner was made using the tumbler template from crazy mom quilts for her tumbler quilt at moda bakeshop.
