Holding my attention - "La Passacaglia Quilt"

"La Passacaglia Quilt"

progress ... progress ... progress ...

It's not too often that a quilt comes along and holds my attention so well.
It is all English Paper Pieced and I have the holes in my fingers to prove it! lol

here is a quick look at the 3 new Rosettes.

I decided to give the Racoons back their tails in this large Rosette 
and I am liking how it looks like they are poking out under the stars :o)

This is where I am up to so far.

Thanks for popping by,

What a Week

I have prepared 3 Rosettes and ready to sew for my
 "La Passacaglia Quilt"

I've had some more Tula Pink Fabrics arrive.

In an attempt to balance out the Bonnie and Camille Ratio to the Tula Pink Ratio
I went off to my LQS yesterday and picked up these lovelies.

I have cracked open this F8 Bundle. It's all ironed ready to go, into what I am not yet sure.

And I have decided that it is high time I finished off this boy so that I could start the 
new pattern by Jodie "T is for Turtle"

but decided that he needed his friend too :o)

Hopefully by the end of the weekend they will both be finished.

But my proudest part of my week goes to both my Boys.
Both applied for jobs within a new store opening soon. 
580 people applied, yes I just typed 580!
 Both boys made the first cut down to 280 and the group interviews a fortnight ago.
Then both boys were called back for final interviews this week.
70 people being interviewed for 50 jobs.

I am so proud of both of them.
I took them both out for lunch yesterday just to make sure that they know how proud I am.
Regardless of how it ends its a huge achievement to get down to the last 70.
Well done boys.  Fingers crossed for you both. xxx

This Mummy gig can be really hard at times.

Thanks for popping by and until next time, happy stitching.

Another Birthday and more .....

My "Baby Boy" had a Birthday on Sunday.
He requested a Chocolate Cheesecake for this Birthday Cake
so I decorated it like this.

and if your wondering, that 500grams of M&M's falling from that bag ;)

Happy Birthday Kiddo
I am blessed to be your Mum xx

And on a little sidetrack. My Quilt got a little mention in the latest newsletter from
Paper Pieces.  Such an honor and to be in great company with Ashley.

Thanks for popping by. 
I will be back in the next few days with an update on this project.

No Secret here

that I love 
"Bonnie and Camille"
fabrics and patterns.

(Layer Cake Bundles)

 So there should be no surprises when I tell you that I spend my Friday morning closely attached to "technology" so that I could get in on this swap. (All Swap Spots are now Full)

My fabrics are picked.

 Now to cut and post.

I am looking forward to getting back 112 different Charm Squares of 
Bonnie and Camille fabrics to play with.

And in other Bonnie and Camille news.
Have you seen their new line coming out later this year?


I know I am looking forward to having a play with it.

Thanks for popping by,
hugs Sharon
