Something to Leave You With!

Very soon I will heading off on a little trip....

(Well, not so little!)

And I have been "flat out like a lizard lying in the sun"....

(An Australian expression!)

Getting on top of all my school reports, assessments and corrections!

But I did manage, in the last couple of days, to squeeze in a bit of sewing to 
relieve the tension!

Sorry about the colour, it was particularly overcast morning when I took this!

I cut into my stash of "From Little Things" by Sarah Fielke, which I won at Red Pepper Quilts a while back!

I decided on a pattern from the "Stitch" magazine my friend Colette sent me from the States!

And I am SO enjoying improvised piecing to a pattern!

That's what you call an oxymoron, isn't it?

It's a wonky half square log cabin!

Ah! That's better!
It won't be finished before I head off, but that's okay!  

It gives me something to come back to besides all that machine quilting!

I also managed to bind my house quilt...

So that's another one moved to the "Finished" list!

There'll just be enough time for one last post before I leave...

Happy days!

Wishing you a happy and safe trip, enjoy!!!

Hope you have a wonderful trip, and it's warmer than Melbourne. Boy was it cold there yesterday.
I love the pattern with Sarah's fabric, it looks really good.

How exciting to be leaving this horrid Melbourne weather - but holiday's are exciting at anytime aren't they? Have a wonderful trip & look forward to hearing about it on your return :)

I'm exhausted by your amazing list of things you have managed to get through. The planned wonky blocks look lovely in the 'from little things' fabrics.
I hope you enjoy your trip - I'll look forward to seeing your fabric haul when you return!
