New beginnings.


Well. I've been a wee bit busy lately. Actually, more than a wee bit busy. And most of it is due to a boy. *sigh* I have met a most wonderful young man. He is an absolute gentleman, and I am feeling so cherished and loved. So we have been spending most of our time together, getting to know one another. I am loving it. So loving it.

On to sewing news - I have a finished one to show you! Yup, a finish!

I finally have sewn the last of the binding onto my little quilt. This one is made using a turnover of Patisserie fabric by Fig Tree quilts. I love the warmth and colour in these fabrics - they are just delicious. They really are.


I'm quite chuffed with how it has turned out, and I especially love the straight quilting lines. I seem to be using this particular style of quilting alot lately - and I really like it.
So yay- another finish!


And just 'coz I can - here is my darling little niece Alecia. She has grown so much, and is incredibly long. Of course - I still think she is just gorgeous!


Oh, and shhh! Did anyone else notice this little snippet in the current issue of Homespun magazine??!
