I cant believe it

I can't believe its 2 months since I posted, i have been sewing !

I've just noticed you can see my Little grace machine frame peeping out of the top window, yet another room i have extended my sewing area into.

My Carolina crossroads is back from the LAQ I must say I am pleased with the overall effect. Finished just in time to start the next mystery with Bonnie on the 1st April I haven't chosen my fabrics yet. I may have to start later.

I'm going to a quilters weekend retreat in Neenagh in Southern Ireland and have a challenge to finish for it . we were all given a 9" square of fabric and it is to be used in our challenge. I have it partly done in that it is on the design wall , but have another set of cutting to do, here is a first preview, it will look completely different when its finished. The challenege fabric is the centre and its actually purple ! The rest of the fabrics i ordered , do you know I did not have a piece that matched it! All japanese fabrics.

I am taking two classes with Sally Schneider, Woven star and twisted ribbon. I need to sort out my fabric and get some cutting done for that asap.
I am just putting the borders on my curved churn dash quilt for my grand daughter, and also have made goody bags and tissue holders for a group of us who are heading of in October .
I really havent been idle, oh yes and the terrible two have kept me busy, i can't keep them out of the pond, now it needs repaired as the water is seeping away i can't find a hole so have ordered a new liner and will empty pond and refil and replant as soon as it arrives. maybe I should make booties for the two!

Your CC is beautiful! Love the colors! I really like your border, and since I haven't quite got my borders figured out I just may copy it! First have to see if what I'm thinking will work, hope it's okay that your idea will be the idea I may fall back on...I have extra of those blocks and had been playing with them just didn't jell on how to use them.

I was debating doing the CC, but after seeing yours I think I have to - it is just beautiful.
