Colouring in

Have you succumbed to the latest fad yet - colouring-in books for adults? I came across this book the other day and couldn't resist it: Fantastic Cities by Canadian artist Steve McDonald.

It's filled with gorgeous drawings of cities all over the world - Amsterdam, Melbourne, Paris, New York, Tokyo, you name it. There are also some mandalas created from the citiscapes. I can see myself spending quilte a few hours immersed in this book!

I've just finished a large quilt (will show it here soon) and as always after a big project I felt like making some small items. I had just sold a few pencil rolls to my first customer from Russia (!) so decided to make some new ones to add to my Etsy shop. One from this funky transport fabric:

And two from beautiful Aboriginal fabrics:

They would make a great gift for someone who loves colouring in!

Just a reminder that SAQA's 2015 Benefit Auction starts tomorrow (on my birthday!) - you can see all the quilts that are for sale here and read how the Auction works here.

This is my contribution, Escape - it is part of Section 2.

Back in business

Last Sunday I finally got to unpack all the boxes in my sewing room. It felt so good to start up my sewing machine again! I made this block, which will become part of a new quilt:

Sadly this week my husband is in Canberra, so I am even busier than usual taxiing the boys around town (he usually picks them up from their gymnastics training at night). With a work deadline looming as well I don't get to do much sewing, but I'm hoping to find some time on the weekend...
