As usual, not a lot to show, but I have had a finish and almost a finished quilt top.
What have I been doing? Not much really. Life has been tootling on and I just don't seem to have the time or inclination to get into my freshly rearranged and tidied sewing room.
A bit of this
and Scooter is finished.

Speaking of J, she has started on a hand sewing project which is absolutely gorgeous. Personally, I think she is crazy, but unlike me, J is disciplined and will finish her projects.
I also played with Kirsty a couple of weeks ago. We went to the Brisbane Stitches and Craft Show, you can read all about it here. I bought a few things, including these blues.
Wow, Kirsty is a great photographer, but she introduced me to Happy Street, a time sucking game that is addictive. I want to curse her. I have Angry Birds on my iPad and phone and hardly ever play it, so was delightfully, blissfully unaware of what would happen to me if I started playing Happy Street. Take my advice and don't play it, but if you do, I would love to be your friend so that I can move through the levels quicker, mwah ha haa. It is addictive. Be warned.
A couple of weekends ago I pulled out this pile of fabric and started cutting.
quite a bit,
took a breath,
and then had a play.
I used the off cuts from the WOF strips and added them to the charm squares to make them big enough to cut, and voila, an interesting addition to the layout.
