Half Way There

My Scattered Pinwheel quilt on the longarm and  I am about half way through the quilting.
When I loaded the quilt I didn't really have a plan but I like how it is going. there is a lot of stitch in the ditch and then ruler work which I decided to do using my new Accent on Design ruler-boy I love that ruler. My SID is not perfect but certainly better than it used to be.
I think I will leave the coloured areas unquilted to give it a bit of softness. Any thoughts on that thinking??

Post Arrived

Well the anticipation is now over as the postie left a little parcel in my letterbox a short time ago. I tell you there was no gentle opening, but quick ripping of this parcel to reveal my Sister Swap gift. There was no identifying writing on the parcel to say who it was from except it had a UK postage mark on it, and the card inside was signed Penny.
After a lot of detective work I ascertained that the parcel was from Penny who blogs at
So in my parcel was-

This little cat that is handstitched and is only about 5 inches tall, and the golf themed fabric covered notebook. I have had to use the photos off Penny's blog as mine kept loading sideways.
Thank you Penny for my gifts.
This has been a fun swap and it has been great to have the linky party so we can see all the wonderful gifts that have been sent and received. All except two were new blogs to me so it has been wonderful visiting everyone. A big thank you to Michelle for 'being the mom' of the swap for all of the sisters.

It's a Sister's Thing Swap

I going to wait until I received my package before I posted,  and just combine what I had sent and what I received in one post but unfortunately I think the postie has decided to keep my package for herself!! I know my package has been sent but it has yet to arrive in the post box.

I got to stalk Pauline over in the UK who blogs at It was fun stalking someone I had not visited before, but at the same time a bit daunting that 'I would get it right'. Pauline goes caravanning a lot, and also has a new kitchen in her house so I nearly made her a set of placemats but boy am I glad I changed that idea as she has just made herself some.
Instead I made her a wall hanging for her sewing room. I saw she has a love of Kaffe Fassett fabrics so out my stash of these came and here is the result-it was rather windy when I took the picture but it was the best I could do before it went in the post.

It is the Nested Churn Dash pattern and I did straight line quilting on it.

Pauline does a lot of childrens charity quilts so I included a pattern by a New Zealand designer, along with a little pin cushion and of cause chocolate.
Enjoy Pauline.
