Growing and Growing

What a fabulous month its been for new members, so far this month we have welcomed Crafty Pug and Cheryll and today I received another email from Marie wanting to join who saw this blog on Crafty Pugs blog - isnt the internet great for networking.

Therefore a big welcome to member number 8  - our first " West Australian" - Marie.
I anxiously await both Cherylls and Maries colour and block choices to get to work on their first swap

Its been absolutely pouring down here in Adelaide this week so what better way to spend the evenings quilting.  On Monday night I finished Crafty Pugs block (that was posted today), and last night I completed the binding on one of my UFO's that has been sitting in my pile for several months now.  This one is called Nells flowers (from P&Q Magazine) but I chose not to do the scalloped border as that a little beyond my skill set.  Its in keeping with my flavours of browns blues and creams of present with a bit of red thrown in for good measure.  Its a lovely warm looking quilt, and as you can see it gets the tick of approval from Billy my Cavalier.
