Drum Roll Please.......

... No, wait for it - It's a Block Roll! Designed by local Quilter - Couzart Creations - this is just the ticket for keeping those larger and smaller blocks nice and flat without the need for a pizza box. Nice and simple, made in one afternoon and I just love it! I didn't have enough of the nice floral fabric, so I borrowed Lorraines' wave ruler to echo the ric rac waves and inserted the green piece to go around the middle.

Simply roll open and there you have them - your gorgeous blocks. A block from the Land Of Liberty online BOM is shown here.

Just Plain Nuts...

Look at that! Mmmm - a new fabric pack and a new book. Heaven for the next project that is a bit challenging. I can't wait to get started on this one. Just Plain Nuts is a book of complicated 6in square patterns designed by Liz Lois, who also drafted up and published the book Nearly Insane which I made a couple of years ago. I've got everything ready to go - the only thing missing is the time to start it - hopefully I'll get some of that over the next few days...

Now I am going to play with my fabric... while I tidy up the sewing room of course :)

Visting animals...

It seems that when the cold weather strikes, the animals need to come indoors and seek some warmth in a quilt! Check out this little black skink - he was found wrapped up in our camping quilt in the loungeroom.
As you can see, he was tiny, but boy, he sure could move really, really quickly! He slowed down though when he was put outside. Hopefully he is happy now living in one of my pot plants.
And then, not to be outdone, here is a bat - sleeping in our shed. My DH found him nicely snuggled in between two dropsheets. Sweet dreams little guy...zzzzz
