Tis the life .....

The life of a foster carer and quilter .... A maybe baby that will definitely need a special quilt of his own .

Block 1 done ,11 to go hopefully before/ if he arrives here.

Because if he does come I'm sure my sewing time will be a lot less :) But lots of baby cuddles will make up for that :)

If he doesn't end up coming the bonus will be a gorgeous baby boy quilt waiting for someone special!!!!

The last few weeks have seen me reading more than sewing ... It's funny I never find time to do both well so usually gravitate towards one.
I have never wanted an e reader but this year have read a few books on my iPhone out of convenience... Way to easy to go to the iBooks store and download books in seconds :)

The past few days I have been reading Bloom by Kelle Hampton . A memoir from a very talented writer, photographer and mother about the shock of her daughter having down syndrome . It is a beautiful book with gorgeous pictures a story that in parts made me cry but mostly smile . I loved it and highly recommend it !!!!

Always and forever

We now have a new little friend living with us Miss J is 19 months old ....

So a new girlie quilt was needed in a hurry .... The fabric is A couple of Always and Forever charm packs and some white sashing ... Too Easy !!!

Star light Star Bright

Not much sewing has been happening here the last couple of weeks :(
I have been feeling very uninspired and have been reading more than seeing in my spare time.....

But last night inspiration struck and I started a new project ..... So now I have a 6 pointed star and maybe many more one day .

I have seen a few English paper pieces Star quilts in blog land and hopefully mine will be just as pretty!!!
