Dust bunnies, quilt blocks & knitting…oh my!

Well another week has been and gone and all my spare time has been once again consumed with all things creative. This weekend was a long weekend in Perth and today was really the first day where I have not spent the whole day doing sewing. My house was getting to the stage where I could not ignore the dust bunnies hopping around any longer so I spent most my day today cleaning. Then in the afternoon after a well deserved shower (in a sparkling shower recess) I spent some time outside enjoying the view and listening to all the different varieties of birds flitting about in the trees and bushes around my home. It was so peaceful I do believe I may have dozed off for a few minutes.

So what do I have on the go this week? Let’s see… The second block for the Homespun Block of the Month came out on Friday and I have prepped for that by organising papers for paper piecing, etc.

I have also being doing a stitchery that I got off the front of a magazine (Mollie Makes). It’s really cute and I want to take it to work to brighten up my desk.

I have also started knitting a scarf in prep for winter and a pair of merino wool socks. I have also bought some cotton to make some crocheted face washers & practice some of the fancier crochet designs.

Lastly, my sister Chelsea has a team for the Relay for Life this year to raise funds for cancer research. I have joined her team this year, hoping I will be well enough to go in it. I have volunteered to make a quilt that she can raffle off to raise funds for her team. So I have been busy deciding on the pattern and organising fabric, etc. I’m loving the fabric – blues, burgundy, pinks & taupes. I hope Chelsea likes it too.

Oh and one other thing. I found out that there is a quilt shop in Kalamunda, just 5 minutes from my house. My prayers have been answered AND the owner, Chris, puts on a sewing night on Wednesdays, which I can’t wait to attend. The store name is Laneway Quilts. Check it out on facebook.

Well have a great week.

Until next time…happy creating!
