A bit of "Fresh Air"

On our Wednesday Sewing Day with my soon to be Mother-In law Gail, I started making this charm square table topper. I've had this Fresh Air charm square for a while and never knew what to make from it. With Gail's advise and the use of her "Thimble Blossoms - Simple Charm" pattern this table table was born. lol.

I took this opportunity to finally use my quilting frame. I have been quite nervous about using it, and did not want to put a quilt top on it, only it stuff it up. So I used my table topper as a practice run. There was a couple of bumps in the road at the start but once I had all the right settings it was going smoothly.

Next quilting project to tackle now is my "Basic Grey - Urban Couture" quilt top. Fingers cross it goes well. I will be back to post some pics later in the week.

Sweet Abbey Bag

I love these handy Pin-Cushion Bags. This pattern is a Abbey Lane design and the material I have use is "Sweet Hearts" from Benartex. It's bright and cheerfully. I'm itching to make more from different collections. Stay turn for more little creations ..

Quilting Frame

Hello bloggers, Yes... I'm alive and still quilting. "How fast time does fly". It's been a while since my last blog. My time has been spent planning Simon's and my wedding. Thank god, most of the planning is completed. Invitations sent, cake order, dress fitted, flowers made; lol.. I'm so excited for this day to arrive. Our wedding is simply but has a romantic vintage charm to it. Fingers cross that everything runs smoothly.

My other news is that I recently brought my first quilting frame. I have not yet put the frame to work but it won't be long now. I have a couple of quilt tops that have been waiting so some time. I purchased this frame from my soon to be sister Sarah. What's a sister with-out "Hand me Downs" LOL. She brought a brand new one with all the bells and whistles. I was over the moon to be able to buy this one. I have seen the masterpieces that have came from this frame. Hopefully it can work some miracles for me.
