A new year and new goals

Still can't quite believe the school holidays are almost finished. Its been busy here in the house of Flower and Linen.

Chookyblue has been cracking her whip in the Stitch-a-long. I have been going as fast as possible at the moment with three kids at home and hubby away for alot of the holidays but this is what I have achieved lately........

Some more of this.......


and this...........


a little of this.........



some more of these........



And to get myself into gear this year I've joined this wonderful group


I figure this should help me get through three projects I have going, I adore them still, but other priorities have taken over.

Lastly, I have decided to attempt a quilt that I have had my eye on for a long time now. This is the Girls Day out quilt by Libby Richardson that was originally a BOM for many stores a couple of years ago. I was fortunate enough to be in Cairns during the week to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary and saw this quilt 'in the flesh' for the first time by Button Tree quilts and made me fall in love with it all over again.

Look at the details in these blocks, especially this block previously completed by Narioka

Pop on over to see Sharon our host at http://friendsmakingquilts.blogspot.com.au/ of Lilabelle Lane fame. Such an amazingly productive woman with four children - not sure how she does it.

I am really looking forward to starting this quilt. I picked up two of twelve patterns for $2 each at Button Tree quilts - not sure I'm going to be so lucky with the rest. I'm hoping to complete most of this in this gorgeous fabric - however not having much luck.

Happy Stitching everyone
