I had all four wisdom teeth taken out on Monday under general anesthetic. Monday, Tuesday and most of Wednesday have been a big blur to me, although I did manage to get some sewing done on my DQ. Three cheers for sick leave!
Thursday was all smiles, I walked outside to see a little parcel at my front door. It was my Doll Quilt made especially for me! I love it, the mix of colour and white, the puffs and buttons are just beautiful. Thank you for much Jody, hope you don't mind that I stole the photo from your blog.
My doll quilt is almost done, just needs a label. This little quilt has a long journey ahead of her and I hope my partner likes it.

Have a good weekend

Almost finished my DQS quilt top, trying to decide if I will add a pieced strip to the right.
Have a good weekend.

Lucky duck...

This week has been one full of little surprises. I won two giveaways!
Normally most of my blog reading happens at work (on my lunch break of course!), and unfortunately my IT department does not allow me to make comments (how dare they). So the only time I can comment is if I happen to read any from home. So I commented on two giveaways for the first time and won them both, very lucky girl.
First I won Rosalie's beautiful new stitchery patterns. They have arrived and are just as fabulous as ever. I also won a pattern from Amanda Brooke, I will be whipping up the swag as soon as it comes.
I also received the second Pin Cousin of the Month. I have fallen in love with the pin toppers and have banned myself from looking at her shop in fear of buying the lot!
I have started my Doll quilt for the swap, this has become high priority as I could not live with myself if I was late. These are the fabrics Ill be using. Have a good weekend.

If I need it, make it!

At night school I need a laptop, which means I need a laptop bag. I use my laptop in class and at my full time job, so I carry the laptop with me everywhere. So I needed a new one, made from Amy Butlers new fabrics...
I have also joined my first swap, Doll Quilt Sway 5. I am really nervous about this, maybe I should have tried something a little easier first!
Now my Sunday will consist of dreaming of ideas and making these for this...

Have a good week.

Domestic bliss...

This weekend I was quite busy. I made homemade fresh pasta, chocolate chip cookies and finished off this...
Its by Janelle Wind from Quilt Fabric Delights, one of my many BOM on the go at the moment.
I also made 4 more Passport holders for friends

Next up the piecing for little bluebirds and another Giraffe.

It has been school holidays for us here in Victoria, which means less traffic on the road and no school for us part time uni students. I can do so much more at home with those extra two nights a week. Back to the rat race tomorrow.

Have a good week
