The next update :)...Stitching and a new member of the family.

Things have been going well here, last weekend I went to a sewing "meetup" at a place called Can Do Books in Hawthorn.  If you are in Melbourne and haven't been there I recommend a visit.  It is full of crafty and creative books and I came home with these goodies which I am very excited to begin something out of each :)
100 Modern Quilt Blocks
Yoko Saito's Houses Houses Houses (Sorry I had rotating problems)
Stitch Zakka (Rotating problems again!)

I stitched some more of my Lynette Anderson Wildflower Wood Block of the Month, the satin stitch flowers were what I focussed on so that I can finish Block Two.  I have finished the Owls of block four and again have left the satin stitch flowers for last.

I have been helping out a couple of days a week at Sewn and Quilted in Blackburn and am really enjoying it.  It is nice to be around like minded people, and the fabric of course is very tempting.  I purchased this little bundle yesterday to begin my Green Tea and Sweet Beans quilt when our container with our belongings in it arrives.

The other news is that we have a new addition to our little family.  Her name is Suzie and we are having lots of fun with her.  She is only 12 weeks old so she is very playful, but also very affectionate which is what we were looking for in a cat.  I haven't done any sewing with her around yet so we shall see how much of a temptation those strands of cotton are for her very shortly.  We played a new board game the other night together which has lots of little pieces that I thought would be tempting for a kitty but she was happy watching and sleeping in my hat.  Surprisingly I have managed to write this whole blog post without her sitting on the laptop, which along with my hat seems to be a good place to sit and sleep.

Thank you Melody for your special Hello :) and thank you to anyone who has popped over here from Melody's blog! I am feeling excited to become more of a part of the blogging community.

Happy Sewing!!!


  1. Hi Cornelia your stitching is beautiful it was lovely meeting you at sewn and quilted yesterday and I look forward to catching up again next time I'm in there. Have a great week end. Helen

  2. So nice to "meet you". Your stitcheries are beautiful. I love Lynette Anderson's designs and have just completed
    her In Full Bloom quilt. It is at the quilters now. I think your cute little kitty takes top billing with this post though. Love tabbies.


  3. Suzie is so adorable. You have written a delightful post and I hope I read many more.

  4. Suzie is gorgeous! Love your stitcheries :) Barb.
