Pay It Forward...

A little while back I put my hand up to be a part of Pay It Forward on Illene's blog.
These are what I was so lucky to receive!

How awesome is this tree? It has so many beautiful beads and stars hand sewn on to it.

She has done such an amazing job!

She also included a gorgeous little notebook and some threads! Yay!
I love me some stitching!
Thank you so much Illene!
Now... I need three volunteers to let me make something for them.
I will send you a sweet parcel with something hand made. All you have to do is promise that you will pass it forward by getting your own 3 volunteers. You have 12 months to fulfil your promise.
Please help me share the love!!!

The colour purple...

As a lot of you already know Mum comes over every Tuesday and we wisely spend the day sewing and quilting!

In June she started her most formidable project to date to produce an early wedding anniversary surprise for a lovely lady at dad’s work.

After finding out her favourite colour was purple, Mum and I spent a lot of time selecting the right fabrics. It was such hard work checking out every quilt store we came across in the search for purples! : )

Then work began in earnest every week and slowly it began to evolve over time into a king size quilt that has exceeded our expectations. It’s a monster!!!

We finally finished the last stitch on Saturday.

She has done such an amazing job! I only helped with the cutting she did everything else on her own! What a champ!

Sorry for the blurry photo.

Its details are:

Dimensions: 90 x 104 inches

Poly wool batting

quilted in purple thread by Vicky at Stitch It Quilts.

To Julie and Gino, Mum and Dad hope you like it.

Special deliveries

I have been so super spoilt with all the well wishes and comments from all the awesome people out there that I have met in blogland! Thank you everyone! I read each and every comment! I just have been slack in replying, Sorry!

I opened up an envelope last week to reveal this amazing hand made card from Amy!

Isn't it just gorgeous!?! Imagine how fiddly it would have been to make???

So sweet, we had the Irish wedding prayer read at the ceremony. Love it!

Then I received a parcel all the way from Canada! Thanks Kristie!

I may or may not have been like a kid at Christmas.... It didn't rattle when I shook it :)

How awesome is this hoop? I actually squealed when I opened it all up. Paul gave me the strangest look. couldn't have been to crazy sounding, He still married me : )

I ripped it all open to fast to get a pic with the wrapping paper. Oops. pretend it was like it was above but with gorgeous paper!

Check out the hand made card. Too cute! I'm a Mrs : )

See this little bag. Don't you think it looks like it is meant to live under my pillow, filling my head with beautiful dreams each night?

Dreams about what you ask?

Munki Munki dreams of course!

How sweet is she to part with these beauties???

I am one lucky lady to be a part of this great blogiverse of ours!

Thanks Ladies!!!

Can I bribe you?

Where have I been?
Well, to sum it up, I have been drowning in tuille!
How crazy are weddings????? There are so many different things to organise!!!
Well, I am on the home stretch now, in less than three weeks I will be married! yay!
But until then....
I don't think I am going to be able to blog much. I have done next to no sewing so not much to report about there.
I can do a pre wedding sneak peak if anyone is interested? Tuille Tuille and more tuille.
Here is where the bribing comes into it.
I have a charm pack of Figgy Pudding waiting here and because apparently christmas is just around the corner, one of you fine folk might want it?

How do I get it, you ask? well, Barry the weather god has been awfully generous around here. Lots and lots of water falling from the sky lately!
You mission if you choose to accept it is.... you need to guess what the temp will be on my wedding day and if it will be raining or dry.
because there are so many variables to this. You know how every weather channel is different? well, I am going to go by the one on my phone.

I will take a photo of my weather screen the morning of the wedding and the winner will be notified asap after that.
So, Leave me a message and promise you will still be my friends after this huge blog break and while you are there, have a guess at the temp and rain or sunshine. Please don't guess the same number as anyone else, first correct guess, wins.
International friends welcome to guess but please only use celsius temperatures!

Bloggers Quilt Festival

I am joining in at The Bloggers Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.
This is always such a fun few days looking at every ones blogs and getting a chance to chat with everyone who leaves comments!
I have been so busy planning my wedding that I haven't been sewing at all! Shocking, I know!!!
So, I am going to have to tell you all about a quilt I made earlier in the year.
It now lives on my couch and I snuggle with it every night, even when its not cold!

My Mum was interested in learning how to make quilts, so I got out 2 jelly rolls from my stash and we both made a quilt each.We sat side by side at my kitchen table each Tuesday until they were finished. We used the same pattern and the same fabrics.

You could say we have twin quilts : )

I just love how they turned out.

It would have to be my favourite quilt for sure!

Thanks for looking!!!
