Lollipop Suffolk Puffs and a little bit of amy butler


I can't believe another weekend is about to close in - It has been a busy one and the washing is still whirring in the dryer so school clothes will be ready in the morning. It started on Friday after school when I took a trip to Ballarat Patchwork to deliver my cushion for the chocolate lollipop competition. Although I had 2 months to complete it, I was still up until midnight the night before finishing off a suffolk puff.
We had a trip to Melbourne yesterday for the in-law Fathers Day dinner. A trip to Melbourne is always a good excuse to visit yet another Patchwork shop, and I managed to squeeze in just a little bit of Amy Butler for my stash.


I was impressed with the bag it came in!

I had heaps to do in my sewing room today as I have started experimenting with some Kaffe Fassett fabrics and I am also working on a Friendship Quilt that is due in a couple of weeks. Not to mention other exciting projects that just pop into my head from time to time when I happen to see different fabrics! (and I have one PIF to send and one still to make)

Despite all these lovely temptations, Spring was in the air, and I just couldn't help myself and had to get out into my garden and enjoy the smell of the earth. I planted a Magnolia tree and dug out just a little more grass!!! Now I am quite stiff, sore and tired and about to face ... CONCERT WEEK at school. ARGH!!!!!!!

One more bit of excitement, was on Friday night when we went on a family outing to one of our favourite shops - Office Works! I found a lovely litte box for my sewing table. I think I will fill it with cottons. I just love little boxes.

You did have a busy weekend.
Love those fabrics. Dragonfly fabric is my favourite of course.
Love little boxes too. My aim is to get a bookshelf and fill with little boxes for my craft.

Your garden shots look gorgeous Annie - I'm obsessed with boxes too; can't get enough of them. Bought a lovely set of pretty bath smellies at Target yesterday just for the box they came in! I'm mental!!

Annie, Those projects are rocketing along - I can wait to get a view of these friendship quilts one day - I vote for a gallery opening !

You have been busy. Your projects look beautiful. I have always wanted a Magnolia tree but we live too near the beach for one to thrive. And I am a box fiend too! Surprise! Surprise! Hope your concert goes really well.
