Fun in my fabric world....

Some fabric play and a nice surprise!

 Having a break from uni work at present, so I have had a little time to play with some ideas from my Brigitte Giblin class. This may be the beginning of a 13panel hexagon quilt...fun playing with vibrant fabrics and ever gorgeous spots...this will be yet another slow play!
Some lovely mail from LeAnn of Sewing Straight Stitches ...we have both been making the Le Petite quilts and enjoying each others interpretations...and I won this fabulous pattern & thread keeper on her giveaway. It flew a long way to meet me & I love it...looking forward to stitching it together.
 Madly packing to leave tomorrow for a weekend with Chookyblue, Kerry, Peg, Dale, Miss Jules and sweet Nicole... here we are last year...now I am running around the house like a confused Masterchef contestant...probably grabbing all the wrong stuff...oh well, it will be fun to get away...see you all soon!
