A very lovely lady emailed me and said she enjoyed my blog, loved my travels and work but could I post some more photos of what I am working on or finished so here goes. I needed to feel I had finished something so here it is. I still need to bind this but hopefully over the Christmas break that will happen.

I also finished this off and filled in all the ends ready to applique on to a raspberry stripe border and then on to some vintage barklcloth that I had in stash.

These are some hexies I have been working on for a Marg George quilt that has appliqued birds and birdcage as well as hexie blocks made into stars. This is also a BOM at Material Obsession for this. Well worth it. It is beautiful. I have prepared all the background blocks, overlocked them and am now tracing pattern and cutting out pieces ready to start applique.

Another quilt very close to finishing. This is the last border on an antique Medallion. Will show again when finished.

Some more kaleidoscope hexies nearly finished but you get the idea.

These are some stars and hexies for basket quilt. Also a Marg George class. I am excited about this one as I have a spearmint green linen for hexies/star and spearmint green and white stripe linen for applique baskets.

I bought this vintage sewing basket off Ebay and thought you might be interested in seeing this as the work is unbelievable. So tiny and all quilted too!!!

I also managed to make a small Eye Spy quilt for our beloved little Aidan who at 12 weeks is now 3kgs. So tiny still and very unsettled with bad reflux. We have tried just about everything and bought everything that has been recommended to us bouncies, swings, pouches, different formulas, medicines, special pillows, baby whisperers but I guess my poor daughter will just have to wait till he outgrows it like the Doctors are now saying.

Like everyone else I am madly preparing for Christmas and packing sewing, DVD'S, books, presies, food and trying to hide it as we have our Apartment on the market and a couple have fallen in love with it the week before Christmas and asking to come in every day to look at something else. I have decided if it happens again bad luck they will just have to move around everything as I am running out of time and I want to trace the pattern for Marg's birds on my HUGE lightbox so I don't have to take that up the Coast to our holiday house as well. Cannot wait to sit on verandah with icy cold Sav Blanc and hexies. If it aint done or I haven't got it bad luck.

EVERYBODY have a great and safe Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope Santa is good to you and WE all get lots of sewing done. Best wishes, Sharron


  1. HI Sharron, First of all, CONGRATULATIONS! on becoming a grandmother and I am pleased that little Aidan is doing well, except for the reflux, and putting on weight. Wishing you and your familly a very merry christmas and a safe and happy new year. Enjoy that Sav Blanc!

  2. Oops, forgot to mention all those beautiful hexies! They look fantastic, as does that divine sewing box you found!

  3. Best wishes to little Aidan and congratulations to you and the rest of his family. I love your quilts, such soft colours and beautiful designs, thanks for all the pictures. Love the little sewing box too - I never see things like that on ebay!! Have a happy and healthy Christmas and a lot of stitching in the new year, God bless you all.

  4. Congratulations on becoming a Grandma. A most important role. I just love what you do and adore your fussy cutting of your hexagons. They are simply divine. I shall look forward to 2011 to see what you come up with. Have a great Christmas.

  5. Thanks for remembering my request and posting more of your beautiful work.
    Your grandson is so sweet in his Christmas suit. I hope his reflux resolves itself soon, such a worry. What a wonderful find the quilted sewing box is!
    Happy New Year!

  6. Love your work. Thank you for posting! I'm partial to the EPP -- especially the hexie medallions...I think. I like them all too much to pick a favorite. Those works in progress are intriging!

  7. I can't wait to see the Eye Spy Quilt! I have enjoyed seeing what you are working on very much. I am waiting for someone to ask me any day, as I have NOT sewn in so long with being preoccupied with "lifting and toting", ugh!~ but I WILL! soon. very sooon...
