After living in this house for only a year, we're finally getting around to putting things up on the walls.  I guess we've been waiting to be finally settled in and happy with furniture location etc.

The first thing that has gone up 'permanently' (ie not 3M Command hooks) is the pegboard in my sewing room.
I first had the peg board hanging up at our last house and it was full, but now I can't remember what I had on it!  I think I had all my scissors hanging up, but they now live in the baskets on the door of my Horn cabinet.  This may have to change when the munchkin becomes a crawling/walking munchkin though.

In the mean time, the peg board will be used for rulers and embroidery/quilting hoops as you can see.  I just need to recover my metre ruler from the garage now that I have a place to put it.

My first christmas present

Yesterday we celebrated the Wilson Christmas.  Hubby and I are going to Sydney this year to have Christmas day with my family, so we had to do his family early.  They do KK for the presents so we only need to buy one.

This year I got a bag full of quilting goodies!!
So that's a quilting bag for taking mats, rulers etc to classes (means I'll have to go to some classes this year!); a cutting mat, ruler and square in a set; a Clover patchwork layout sheet; an Ofla circular cutter; two fat quarter bundles; a June Tailor template set; a quilting template; and a Colour and Tone guide.

Can't wait to have a play with some of those things... but must not start any new projects until the Music Quilt top is finished.... (provided my mail order fabric for the sashings turns up in time!!)

YAY Freebies!!

I love freebies!

Because my husband is so unsure of what to buy me for Christmas, we agreed he'd just pay for a quilt pattern that I want.  I ordered it online from Fabric Patch and it arrived today.  I'm not allowed to 'play' with it till Christmas though, so you'll have to wait for that, but....

In the parcel came a little surprise!
A small gift to say thank you for supporting Fabric Patch

It was two charm squares.
Oooo the excitement of working with something new and unexpected.  But I have to stand by my self imposed ban on new projects until I finish at least the top of the music quilt that I want to give at Christmas.
