New Material and Table Runner

Phew had some busy times the last couple of weeks - a bit of family stuff that took a bit of time and of course my full time job.  I wanted to show some pictures of material that has arrived here for me recently, some really yummy stuff which I am dying to get into.  BUT BUT ........ still have the quilt to finish before I can go wild with these so best get stuck into it again shortly.  

This lot of material I actually brought back in November from an Etsy seller and it never arrived, I was a bit gutted as I wanted it to finish the wallhanging that I have started.  I contacted the seller after Christmas to advise that it still hadnt turned up so thought someone else had a nice Christmas present on me the sods.  Anyways the nice lady sent me some more fabric and this arrived in 7 days so I was really really stoked to get it.


Now this lovely lovely lot below is my birthday present from the girls at CRAFT group, man I always wanted a jelly roll, now I have two of them to play with, I can see a quilt for my bed out of these in my future.


And finally today I made up a quick table runner for the dining room, I have changed things in there to make it a second sort of sitting room which is handy.  We had visitors at our place last Wednesday night and I notice they all ended up sitting in the dining room on the couches chatting while I was making coffee etc, was really cosy.  Sorry not great pics as the room is a bit hard to take pics in, its not a dark room so not sure what happens there but there you go LOL




  1. P.S: love the fabrics your received.:)
