Craft iT Forward

It seems like eons ago, when in fact it was early July, that I left  a comment under  Craft it Forward, blog post,on Julia's blog, Lia's Handmades,  however, late last week i received  a mystery parcel in the post, mmmm, i wonder what it  could be?

Craft it Forward  is similar to a chain letter for crafty surprises. The first five people, who have a blog and leave a comment under this post will receive a  handmade gift by me, sometime in the next twelve months.  Once you receive  your gift, you will have to Craft it Forward it to five peoeple as well. What a lovely  way to spread love and happiness.

Here is a photo of the lovely  pumpkins  Julia sent to me,

Thank you for taking time to stop by. Happy stitching. Sharon

October is Here

I hardly  can believe that  it is October  already,  not only  October m but almost half through October.

I am down  in Brisbane for a  few days, for medical check-ups, and the  like.

It is a wonder that I ever made it ....., last Monday night on my way home from work a huge kangaroo  leapt out of nowhere and hit the side of the car,  the driver's door is a bit buckled, nothing  to severe, the rear bumper  was a bit flappy, I was lucky  enough to be able to push it back on. Unfortunately  the kangaroo was not so fortunate,
He was as big as a human.

I have also completed  half of the 2014 Hexie BOM, actually  there are more blocks and  sashings, they just require  sewing together. (The tail belongs to  one of my assistants, Poppy)

Thank you for taking time to stop by. Happy stitching. Sharon

All Ready To Mail

Finally finished cutting out 8, no make that nine sets of two inch squares for the Postage Stamp Charm swap,  I cut myself a set as well.

I also completed the top of a mini quilt for a swap over at #carriesgroup on instagram.  Cannot divulge any info as the swap is secret and I do not want to ruin the surprise.

Also this week,  Chookyblue released our partners for the 2014 SSCS. Shall have to get busy on that project as well.

Thank you for taking time to stop by. Happy stitching. Sharon
