I continue to work on my SBS quilt albeit it slowly.  Today as part of my process of foundation I was pressing and must have had the iron far to hot as it melted the foundation violene I use for making my blocks, so back to the drawing board for this one.  I have also signed up to participate in a fabric exchange over at 'Stash Manicure' which I am really looking forward to, could be quite a challenge but I am looking forward to meeting my swap partner.
On the house front we are slowly but hopefully surely proceeding towards a point where maybe we can actually start building.  The hold up has been the subdivision but it is apparently now in the hands of the 'Titles Office' so maybe just maybe we will be actually be able to settle sometime next week, fingers crossed.
I'm sure my patchwork hobby has taught me the patience needed if one decides to build a new house!!!!!
Just have to go with the flow.

As you can see below I have been busy sewing SBS blocks.  I have had to do a couple more than once as I wasn't happy with the colours and still have a two more I want to redo.  Might leave them until a later date though.

I have been remiss in not posting for a while.  I have been busy sewing although haven't yet done the photos for my latest Sylvias blocks.  Very wet here today and to top it off the power was off from 9.15.  What better day to go to Geelong and check out the new fabric shop and I was not disappointed.  They were not disappointed either as I left behind some cash.  I'ts really great to be able to get one of my  favouritebrand of  needles 'Bohin' which are French, the others I like are Richard Hemming which are very hard to find as well.  I find as I've got older I need a longer needle and these two are excellent.  I have just added a great Blog design button which I found accidently and it has some very good free goodies
