So little time and so much to do…

I’ve been trying to get some things finished this week.  Have I achieved that – well in part yes.  I have just got to put the handles on my Doctor’s Bag and then I’ll have a new work bag.  It should be big enough to put my cup, my workbelt, some food, keys, mobile phone and my stethoscope.  Should be big enough.  Oh and I love the fabric – French General which I got from Quiltopida!Designs and the pattern was designed by Joy’s Patch.

As I had Sunday off, I went to Craft Alive in Wodonga.  Lots of quilts around and I brought some more buttons for Welcome to the North Pole and some fabrics.  I was so happy to find a layer cake by moda called Sakura Park which is the one my daughter wanted and I also got a pattern to use for the jelly roll that I had already found in the same range from Katie’s Patchwork Pack.  I also found a quilt that I wanted but as luck might have it I didn’t have enough money but grabbed a business card and will be getting that quilt.  While looking around, you’ll never guess who I ran into – Rosalie Quinlan and I asked her to help me to select my fabric for Scandinavian Rose.  Made it so much easy to have the designer there but I didn’t feel pushed into buying what was chosen.  I’m very happy with the range though we have chosen.

Another new quilt kit

When I saw this quilt kit, I feel in love with it.  This one is by Rosalie Quinlan  and uses red and pink through out it.  I have started to buy the fabrics to go with it and have the cottons already brought.  I brought the DMC which has shades of pink and red in it.  I think it will be alright, but we shall see.  The quilt is called Scandinavian Rose and comes as a 6 pattern pack with 14 blocks.  I like the european flavour through out this quilt.  It should be very lovely when it is finished with it being 27½ inches (70 cm) by 12½ inches (32 cm).
