This will be the second row of the challenge quilt that Marg (House of Margarita) and I are doing. Needless to say, I have only done the one block while she has finished the row!!!

A friend of mine suggested that we do a row by row quilt together (House of Margarita) using only what we already have in our stash,, sounds easy enough? Guess picking the fabrics was easy,, I started making one of the blocks and nearly climbed the wall in the process (oh boy, I'm gonna get her!) must have checked the instructions a million times,, "it can't be this small/we must be making a doll's quilt",, this is the first block, only another 8 to go!! It is 4" square,,,, Fiddly!!! Grrrrrr! It will certainly be interesting to see the finished quilt!!!

Just a quick look at a few of the materials that I got in NZ,, I really put a restraint on myself this time which was amazing

Well, I am home from nearly a month spent in New Zealand, caught up with one of my daughters and her lovely sons and spent some time driving around the south island.. Some beautiful scenery and lovely weather followed me everywhere.. Got home and have just been playing with my Janome 6600 Memory Craft, it is a huge sewing machine to what I have ever had and is sooooo quiet! Not a lot getting done but am on my way!! This year is going to be great!!
Till next time when I should have some photos up,,, Cheers
