Perfectly Perched? lets begin....

We had a super time on holidays..
 and I'm back refreshed and ready to start some new and exciting projects!
This bundle of goodness was waiting for me on my return!
Now isn't that just what I need?

HipBee shakes!

Online sewing Bees are something I've always stayed away from.
I've never joined one because I never thought I could keep pace with one!
So this year I've taken the plunge and joined not one but two :)
Its not that I've suddenly found an extra day in the week or anything, 
just looking forward to meeting some fellow UK and Irish bloggers!
HipBees officially launches today and starts in August.
All the bloggers are from the UK, some I already know 
and some I'm looking forward to meeting!
Mama HipBee   Di - Willowbeck Designs -
Tanya - Second Chance Tan -
Rachel - Mamma Fairy Sews -
Fiona - Sew Fi -
Collette - Poppie and Poochie -
Renee - Nellie's Niceties -
Lynz - Domestic Light and Magic -
Jan - Isisjem -
Catherine - Sew Wonderful Life -
Sarah - Sew Me -

So I'm going to be a busy bee :D

Criss Cross Returns

Last week I received a lovely email from Rea in Canada.
She had found my Criss Cross Quilt pattern on the Moda Bakeshop 
and sent me a photo of the wonderful quilt she had made.
Isn't it beautiful?
The colours are fantastic and the piecing is just perfect.
Thanks Rea, for sharing your wonderful quilt with us!
If you have made a quilt using one of my patterns, I'd love to see it.
Drop me an email or post it to the Lisnaweary Quilts flickr group.

Titanic break!

After having a 'short' break from blogging, I'm back!
June is always a hectic month, this year even more so, 
as we decided to squeeze in a holiday too!
Before we went away, I finished my Titanic quilt.
I did some free machining swirls on the sea.. 
 and some spikey or sharp lines in the sky behind the ship.
I was trying to give the impression of coldness in the air.. 
This is the finished wall hanging, which I have entered in the 
Fingers crossed!
