Sewing was at my house the other week, and Azz took advantage of Michelle's quilt. He was just getting really comfortable and it was time to move.
So wish you could hear him snoring, or maybe not. It's difficult to concentrate on writing this post it's so loud. Sometimes he wakes himself with the volume, with a look on his face that asks 'what was that', other times we wake him - just to hear the TV or in search of a decent nights sleep. Yes sad but true - we have left our warm beds in the middle of the night to roll him over in his basket after calling has failed to wake him.
The postive/negative nine patch Helen made from Patchwork on Stonleigh's fabric club fabrics. I love it even more than mine.
Every three months you receive a newsletter, pattern and 10 Fat 1/16's of antique reproduction fabrics. I used all mine up last year when I made this quilt, but as you can see it doesn't take long them to multiply again.
I've decided to collect them in this old sewing machine draw. When I can't squeeze anymore in I'll know it's time to make something. Well that's the plan, whether I stick to the making bit is another thing, but they make a pretty display and it's nice to run your hand over them every so often and dream!
Love the idea of the drawer for storage. The fabrics look so good displayed this way, too good to use in fact. Love keeping up with your news.

Dreaming is my favourite part of patchwork and quilting!

I have the same dog in the same colours. She snore's very loud. When i have someone on the phone, they ask what the noise is. Well, that's the dog! Beautiful quilt!

Lovely fabrics, gorgeous quilt, Marg. Azz is so gorgeous; just as gorgeous as our Blenheim mother and son cavvies. There are two of them so they are twice as loud; I often wonder if Don and Kath can hear them snoring!

That quilt looks fabulous. How big are the finished squares - 1"?
You are right, when we see lovely fabrics we gently run our hands over them. You see it all the time in shops or at the shows.
