Foto Finish



I had already decided to post the picture of the cute little flower growing in a crack in our footpath when my husband noticed the gorgeous sunset we had last night. So now you have two very different images instead of one.

Its back to work for me this week after 10 weeks off recovering from my knee surgery. However I wont be overdoing it - probably only work 2 days this week and then my normal 3 the following week. I then have a weeks annual leave which has been booked for quite awhile.

Beautiful, Maree. This is one of those images I would place under the heading "Against All Odds". Aren't plants amazing? Glad to hear you're doing well with your knee. It doesn't seem like it's been that long. Time sure flies.

Both shots are beautiful. I like the yellow and purple flowers, that's my favorite color combination!

My Mom called those little flowers "Johnny Jump-ups"! They are so cute. And what a contrast to that gorgeous sunset. Wow!

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.


This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project.
