New projects

As mentioned in my last post, I have signed up for two new BOM’s.  The first one ins through the Fat Quarter shop as I thoroughly enjoyed the Vintage modern quilt I made via a BOM with them last year ( note to self, still need to take that one to the quilters).

This time I opted for a Medallion style quilt as its been ages since I have done one like that ( years in fact).  This one is called First ladies and is using civil war style fabrics – another first for me.


Block one arrived in the post yesterday.  Its the complete centre star up to ( but not including the dark blue border.  So I will make a start on that soon.  But first I promise to put together Girls day out as all of the stitchery on that has now been completed. 

The other BOM that I have signed up for is another first for me as its made with felt and wool.  It is  an applique and stitchery one made up of 12 monthly seasonal pictures featuring Bertie the bird.
 I think it is super cute and really looking forward to this new stitchery project.


This BOM is from Shabby fabrics and my first block should arrive some time in December. You can see a few of the blocks pictured  on the button above, but below are some of my favourite ones


On a Professional level ( not sewing related) some of you may know that I am a Leasing agent for a high profile real estate company in Adelaide.  Last night was our Industries annual awards, a spectacular night held at the Adelaide Entertainment centre.  We came away with 7 awards, such as top large office, top marketing, top innovation which was an amazing effort, but the BIG win for us was Property Management Agency of the Year, which is the Team that I work in. 

Here I am proudly displaying our award.
We manage over 1 billion dollars worth of Real estate in Adelaide, with a staff of around 20.  I am a Business Development manager with the company primarily working in the high end with Interstate and International relocation's.  This is the biggest award that I have ever been involved in winning.
