A Great Week

Wow what a great week .......
Firstly I finished the Santa quilt. My quilting went so smoothly especially when I am not too confident with free motion quilting but I am very happy with it no problems at all so another UFO out of the box ready for Christmas 2008.

I also got to make the placemats for Danielle that she ordered for Christmas last year. I hope she likes them.

Over the weekend I attended a Quilt show on the Central Coast that I had entered 2 of my quilts
The first was "Mickey on Parade".

And my second entry "Flowers Blooming" took out first prize in the machine quilting section. What a surprise it was but very exciting. I have never won anything so special before.
My prize for this was a new Husqvarna Viking sewing machine

These are the ribbons attatched to the winning entry

A few photos taken on Anzac Day of Kaitlyn, my Mum and Kaitlyn and the last photo is of my DH and my dear Dad all taken at the march in Parramatta.

Ready for Quilting.

Well the Santa blocks are all put together with borders and are pinned ready to quilt.
I am going to quilt this myself not sure how it will go though I have not quilted for a long time. Another UFO almost finished so I am very pleased with myself.

Bobbin has always found herself a quilt to snuggle up to she now has her own. I had made this quilt for our first cat "Scumbag" who unfortunatly died about 3 years ago so now the quilt belongs to Bobbin.
