I have been busy having fun making and stitching indigo moon blocks that I've had to do since I joined Quilty 365 a couple of weeks ago. I am supposed to make one block a day for 365 days. Because I was late joining I had a lot to catching up to do. So far, I have made about 40 blocks and have a few more blocks made up ready for stitching.
I was excited when I laid them down to photograph them. It's nice to see them together. I'm liking it a lot! Excuse the red moon peeking in among its blue siblings. I think red is fitting in there perfectly; what do you think?
On top of working on the indigo moon, I have finally finished a quilt I started 20 years ago. I thought it was time to get it done. It's exciting that I actually made an antique quilt! Another one nearly finished is the Twinkle Little Stars quilt I started in 2013 with Temecula Quilt Company. It looks gorgeous with the blocks together. This will be the next one I hope to finish!
We had our first Stitching with friends for 2016 last Saturday. It's nice to make use of the Treehouse Studio for gathering and stitching.

They are coming along slowly too.

|Happy Valentine's Day everyone!|
An extra table was installed in the Treehouse Studio for more space. Even though there are only 3 of us in a group, with the show and tell, cups of tea and our stitching we need plenty of room to spread out our work.

A bit of Show and Tell for you. 2015 was my 7th year of blogging. Last year, I started printing my blog posts from 2009. I have caught up this year when I printed the 2015 posts. Blogging is a journal of my creativity, travels and life as it happens. I feel good to have them all in print!

|Seed pods gathering|
I have been collecting seed pods for the Seed Pods Art Workshop with Sophie Munns in April. I love seed pods, but didn't know what to do with them. I thought after years of looking at leaves for dyeing I would also start looking at seed pods for whatever I will need them for!
I was happy that my friend Jacky is starting the moon project with me. She and I have been shopping for indigo fabric at Ziguzagu for years. If the indigo moons inspire you. Click here to join-in.
Until next time
