Friday Girl Games Update & A Few Other Things



I did manage to get half of my top joined together before Friday sewing and I finished joining the other blocks into rows at Michelle's home.


Here is Michelle and Helen hard at work.


Helen forgot her background fabric so she spent the afternoon joining her strips for the border.  My border will be the same as this.




These pictures are for Stina.  This quilt is called "Joy of Life" by Rosalie Quinlan - another one in the pile to get quilted.  I think I have definately had a thing for pink quilts lately!


I also have a thing for red and pale blue and look what I found today in Target!  This will be my new "special" glass.

I have found out the name of the beautiful linen that I showed in my last post.  It is a Yuwa fabric and the line is called "Live Life Collection".  You can buy it locally (Australian girls) from Sackville & Lane in Wangaratta, Victoria and their phone number is (03) 57217948.  It is about $48.00 per metre.

I have not done much sewing over the weekend, I have been busy making tomato relish.  I made some about 20 years ago and it turned out terrible.  I vowed I would never make another batch again but I tried Michelle's recipe out and so far so good.  I'm off now to cook snags on the barbie and then we'll have them in bread rolls with lots of relish and a bit of salad.

I really like a scrappy patch quilt. That is going to be great. I love the one you posted for Stina too. It's beautiful and took alot of hard work I'm sure. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sue_Anne, mind if I drop by for the snag sandwich with relish. Love your nine patch quilt, I think I have mentioned previously that it is a favourite block. Love the joy of life

Gosh I think I'm going to have a thing for pink right along with you. Boy this is beautiful beyond words. As a matter of fact I'm only using words here so you know what I'm thinking. I hear you stopped reading minds a few years back *(hee hee wink wink)*

A pleasure to meet Michelle and Helen hard at work. :) And a real treat to see those nine patches coming together. I can just eat 'em up!!!
