I am determined to use as much of the fabric as I can, including the offcuts from the star blocks.

These blocks and others I've made will be used in the border. We had a long weekend so I had plenty of sewing time. Let's not discuss the housework that may or may not have been done.

I know this fabric style isn't fashionable anymore but I'm lovin' it! Hope you managed to squeeze some sewing or crafting into your weekend.

They are not called The Snowy Mountains for nothing
The ski season here in Australia started early when 40-50cm of snow fell on the mountains this week. I live a long, long way away from this winter wonderland but the cold winds blow all the way to Sydney.

Which means I get to wear my coats and scarves and gloves! For the morning at least.

After a couple of hectic weeks, I managed to organise some time in the sewing room which needed a serious tidy before any real stitching could begin.

When I resized the original Miss Rosie pattern, I miscalculated a wee bit and soon began to realise that the original 36in quilt was going to be around 100 and something inches. Yikes!

So I've split the project into two quilts. I even have a name chosen for this one. Not tellin' yet.
