Journalling My Quilts....

I have decided that this year, I am going to 'journal' all of the quilts that I make for the year. I am keeping samples of all the fabrics I use and making sure that I take photos of my progress as I make them. It will just remind me down the track how I made them, the fabric ranges that I used, inspiration, etc... I even found scrapbooking papers and embellishments to finish off the 'look' of the page.

Here are two of the quilts that I have made already this year.... and how I am going to 'journal' the quilts.

"The Conservatory" Quilt

"Dandelion Fields" Quilt

Hope you find some inspiration that will help you 'journal' your own work...for future generations to be able to see and appreciate!!

Happy Quilting

Stay Safe...

Parties, Engagements and Weddings...Plural!!

Well....I have come to the part of my life where I now have 2 children engaged and planning weddings in the near and distance future!!

It is a real exciting time in their lives as they follow their hearts and wishes for the perfect wedding and married life beyond that.

I have the pleasure of planning at least one of these weddings, as my eldest daughter is getting married in March son is getting married in 2013, and maybe if I'm lucky I will be able to help out with that as well...but first things first!!

Planning can be fun or it can be stressful...I'm going for fun!!

Firstly, the engagement party for my daughter...retro inspired, rock'n'roll, 50's party!!

I have been looking and buying things from all sorts of websites, that we need for the party and have found some rippers!! I'm not giving away too much...until after the event when I will post photos, but I will give an excellent website of some fun party gear...not only for engagements or weddings, but kids and adults alike....

Till next time

Stay safe
