East Coast Fabrics on the Sunshine Coast.

Look what I got at East Coast Fabrics today.
We have a new store on the Sunshine Coast at
The Zone
32 Wises Rd
All fabric $5.99 a metre. Will be $7.99 after today but they have this special every now and again.
I can't wait to get started on this one. The panel print is two big birds with 8 smaller ones. I will cut them all out then strip the coloured fabric in 1 to 2.5inch strips and add to the panels to make it a double or queen size quilt.
I was so happy to see this. I had already purchased really wide curtain material to make a bedspread at $1.99 a metre down from $9.99 a metre and material to make kaftans. I was in the car and I notices this Jacobean print on the window. I had to go back in side and buy it.
Keep stitching

I have my latest art quilt home. After being shown in a show it was then chosen to go on show for a further 4 weeks.
It is the first I have made in about 18 months so I hope I am on my way with creating again. The theme was "Year of the Snake" and we were given a pack of items that we had to use in the making.

Hello there I am back after a year off from quilting and art.

Hello to my friends around the world.
After taking a year off from my love of art quits and quilting I am back. I have not posted on the blog or really done a lot at all. I needed this time to refresh and get a grip on what I wanted to do. Do I know yet NO. I have started working in another field but can do that part time and at my leisure so very happy with that.
First I decided not to rejoin my quilt groups as there was too many family pressures happening and other things in my life going on. I have been spending a lot of week days with a friend in Brisbane. She had a huge operation earlier this year. She is just about to have another operation this Monday. I guess I will be spending time with her again when she comes out of hospital. We love to quilt together and bounce off each other. We don't seem to get a lot done if not working together. I have just started to finish and quilt a few of my UFO.
I will post a few of the things I have toyed with over the year. I have made a few teddy bears. I don't know why but crochet a lot of teapot cozies. They came in handy for Christmas presents last year.
 Basket weaving class at Palmwoods.
 Flower felting at Palmwoods.
 Teapot Cozy.
 Hanging Bear. These hang over chair or door handles.
 Cute as this little fellow. I also did a big crouching down bear for my sister's 60th but I must not have taken a picture of it. All bears are hand stitched.
Elephant for a challenge but I may have posted it before.
So as you can see I have not done a lot but I am hoping to start art quilting again soon. I do have one art quilt but it is on show with 3 of my dolls so I will have to wait till they arrive home to take pictures.

HELLO I have not posted for a very long time. I could not get into my blog but after an hour finely worked it out. My what have I b...
