'Challenge' entry in Tauranga Patchwork and Quilters Group Exhibition

Fantastic local Exhibition by our local Patchwork and quilters group.  This year I entered the 'Challenge'.  Have never entered it before, so was totally surprise to be awarded 'merit' for my entry.  We were given a paint sample off a sample chart.  Mine was called 'anticipation'.  The colour of the sample had to be incorporated in the quilt and the quilt had to reflect the name of the sample.  My entry had a half finished quilt, anticipating it's finishing.

Here's a picture of the other entries.

Finished!! Finally!!

Ok, so earlier on in my posts, way back in April 10 2012, under the title of '16 pieces soon to be 1', I showed you some blocks I was making, well now it's finally finished. Here's a few picks.
Such fun to make, but took me way longer than it should have. Hope you enjoy!!

New sewing room do up!

So I'm giving my sewing room a do up.  I've been painting, making new curtains, sewing and painting containers, I haven't finished yet but thought I'd give you a sneak preview of how I'm doing so far.  Hope you enjoy.  Can't wait till it's all done!

Yay, pretty much finished my sewing room now. It's only tiny, but with lots of shelving I can squeeze everything in, sort of !

Another fabric container

Made this fabric container for my new sewing room. Have decide this is the colour I want and will do 3 or for in different sizes to put in my new spruced up sewing room. Will take photos when it's all completed.
Have stitched the inside corner pieces in a way that I can store small scissors and pens or pencils in.
