bloggers quilt festival

i havent seen the quilt festival before, but it looks great, so i couldnt help but link a pic of my fave quilt...the prizes are too good to pass up, and its great to see all the gorgeous quilts out there!

My fave quilt is this one, made for my new little boy. its made with linen and japanese fabrics, with my favourite scraps, and one-offs, plus lots of little bits and pieces from scrappy giveaways that i have won.

i really enjoyed this- it was intricate yet repetitive, almost like a good meditation. plus, the first time i was totally happy with my binding and corners, so Woo Hoo!

head over to the festival to be inspired : )

he's here!!!

so in my last post i mentioned a good reason for being quiet around here. thats because my little man finally arrived! he was born one week late, at home just as we wished, in the loving company of his daddy, big brother, and gorgeous midwife. the birth was everything i could have wished for. it was magical, beautiful, empowering, mindblowing! and what a result- isnt he amazing!!!

between posts, and i have a very good reason...but more on that later ; )

for now, i am dreaming of cushions for my lounge. i have a new one coming in the next week or so, and i need to update my living area...its seriously drab (ugly/ boring/ mismatched/ dreadful- to be more precise!!)

so here's what i'm thinking.
