International 12x12

If you haven't seen already the International 12x12 group have posted their Gray colourplay challenge quilts & have started on their last colourplay challenge which is the colour Orange!Definitely always inspirational to look at!!


Dial-up has been so hopeless lately so I haven't posted anything for a while!We were so excited last week as Telecom said we would now be able to get Broadband,they sent us a modem...then bang we were rung to say after further checks we couldn't get it so send the modem back!!Aargh.....

Congrats everyone for your Family quilts!I was in Chch & I must say it wasn't the same looking at them online & not hearing the stories etc behind them!I just didn't 'get' a lot of them but luckily have now seen a few & Sheena told me a few details!They all look really interesting & I can't wait to see them(feel free to bring them along on the 31st!!!)

With being away,having Mum here,trips to Akl,kids,doing some of my Splash of Colour challenge....even though I chose Recycled I didn't really manage to get started as early as hoped but all going well I should be finished this weekend!Unfortunately I did glue some emb thread before stitching in the centre of my piece,didn't like it but left it over night just in case!Still hated it today so have removed it,hard to get all those bits glue off!!Bit annoyed with a couple of things & of course both in now @ that stage where I start doubting myself & quilt....but too late to change it!

Really look forward to our get together!!!

Recycle, restrain and reject.

Well this time I feel a lot more sorted and haven't left it till the last minute. Funny how things change and evolve as you progress through the making process. Almost as if some things have a mind of their own.
The theme recycle has created alot of ideas from family and friends. Dont think I would be able to transport it if I had used all the stuff everyone has thrown at me. Reason to clear out unwanted stuff for some.
I have been restrained and happy as it progresses towards completion. Look forward to seeing everyones at the end of the month.

I have a had a good start on my Recycled 12 x 12 and I have to say that I am very happy with what I have put together so far. I am REALLY looking forward to seeing everyone's quilts this time! It intrigues me to think what everyone will have done. The possibilities for this topic are endless really. Hope everyone is going well.
