crafty things update

this arvo i got a chance to play in my craft area - and i really enjoyed it!
i got a wiggle on with the quilt for my friend's wedding - it is on the 18th of dec, so i better wiggle faster!!

im making the blueberry chocolate squares quilt from moda bake shop.  today i finished all the half square triangles, and started sewing borders onto them

it is fairly repetitive, but it is coming together pretty quickly so that is great!

also, have received word that some blocks that have arrived safely! Sylvia's blue and yellow block

noelene's block, white and red log cabin

i was also very very blessed to receive a fantastic mag from my wonderful friend Leona, who sent me a copy of Quiltermaker's 100 blocks - it is fantastic!
thank you!!!!!

and to finish with - my little human being crafty all on his own. hubby was given some crappy old tables, which he painted to make waterproof for the little human's sandpit. little human was SO keen to help that hubby found some old tester pots and let him go for it! he is very happy with his work, and refers to them as his and daddy's tables.

thanks for reading and i hope your christmas preparations are going well!

pugs and kisses

Nice colours you are using to make the quilt.
Lovely Blocks.
Little Human is so cute. Maybe he is a budding artist.

Great quilt some really repetitive ones turn out just great because of the fabric. The magazine looks great, lucky you. Is it an American One? The little human is sure having fun runs in the family!!!!!!!!
