This morning I decided since it was going to be 42 degrees outside today, I would get back to the tablecloth to keep working at it. I have no real idea what the original plan was or the way the colours were meant to be, so it's ended up more of a scrappy combination together with the lovely signature blocks provided by several other blogger friends who were so wonderful in making up a block and sending it to me to make the tablecloth. A big thankyou to: Lin, St Victor Quilt Blog, France ; Susan, Susan's Sewing Space from Brisbane - my home town in Queensland! ; Kerrie, Channelbank Creations from NSW; Narelle, Pins and Whiskers blog from the North Burnett Area of Queensland - which is very close to Maryborough where we will be moving to when we sell here!!..... I'm hoping for a bloggy meet up at some point in the future! Sheryl, Sewing After Seven from Spain; Ruth of Green Twiggy from USA; Jo of ButterZ , Victoria ; Maria, of Life on the Block in West Australia; Anthea of Hibiscus Stitches and also from West Australia; And Lynda from By the River in Tasmania. Thankyou so much girls for taking the time to do these lovely signature hexies for me - you will be a constant reminder each time I use the tablecloth ....... which now just needs to have a thin bit of wadding and some backing and I will do some top stitching to attach it. I'll have to wait till I'm in Wangaratta next to pick up the thin wadding material - so hopefully it will be finished by the end of January!!
As a bit of a change I also did a tiny bit of work on the Mochilla crochet bag - its going to be a very very slow process as each stitch needs attention with so many constant colour changes and carrying of yarns!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and perhaps visit some of the other blogs either doing the FNWF or the girls that sent the hexies to me
