A green theme...

seems to be running through my life recently!

Eli got his library bag,

 and loves it!

The veggie patch is flourishing in this humid weather....

the radishes especially!

I've added some appliqué to my Hearts Garden💗 quilt

and have been auditioning the next narrow border.

I added some fabrics to my stash...

and fell in love with that floral when I saw it!

Finally I have started another scrappy quilt...

the classic snail trail block is a fun one to sew!

I used the video tutorial here for mine.

I have a small stash of reds and blues to add to these, 

then I will decide how big I will go!

Have you ever made a snail trail quilt?

Happy days,

And on it goes...

 Summer that is!

I got my "Shuffle" quilt together...

It's now awaiting motivation by me to baste it and get 

started on the quilting...

Maybe tomorrow?😃

I've begun a sew-along being run by 

Elizabeth at OccasionalPiece Quilt

Taken from Elizabeth's blog

It is a relaxed project where she is releasing one free 

pattern for the next few months.

The first one is this pretty paper pieced block....

yes, even the back is pretty!

And the front is lovely too!

If you would like to join in the Hearts Garden sew-along

all the details can be found HERE

I've supplemented my fabric options for this project

with some stash enhancement....

Aren't those safety pins the cutest?

I was very disappointed to find that one fabric store 

now only cuts 25cm minimums. 

As if the price of quilting is not expensive enough?

I found this amazing piece of Amy Butler "Lark" fabric in 

an op shop- 2 metres of furnishing weight for $4!

I need to decide how I will use it?

Maybe cover a chair, make aprons, or bags?

I also found a vintage sheet for $3, and a metre of  

Jennifer Sampou "Sweet Dreams" for $1!

For the first time in many, many years we are growing 

herbs and a few vegetables....

I can't wait to see what we produce!

My eldest grandson started school....

and he loves it!

I need to get started on a library bag for him.

But in the meantime, this shopping bag says it all....

Happy days!
