Soft package

  I have forgotten to share a photo of my win from Connie at Freemotion by the River.  Fabrics, lots of batik fabrics...... lots of beautiful batik fabrics came in the mail last week, and a surprise pattern.  Connie enclosed her Hopscotch pattern, which will be a great scrap busting project.    Let me give an endorsement for her patterns.....beautiful with good photos, and lots of details.  So be sure to drop by and pay her a visit to check the pattern tab out as well as her tutorials.


  I finished off Connie's Christmas Pinwheels ---in blue --- last week.  Guess I am a little late for the season, but it will probably go into the gift stack for next year.  I had several things to bind, and some string blocks to work on.  Since the internet was out, an afternoon was free to me.
 








    I wanted some company as I stitched......I watched several episodes on our recorded list.    Enter my latest heroine.....  Miss Fisher of Miss Fisher  Murder Mysteries.  This is an Australian production, and I am hooked on it.  Found on our local PBS stations on the weekend.
    Phryne Fisher  is a gutsy flapper with a heart of gold to match her gun.    Her outfits are amazing to see and she carries them off well.  Great characters and  a period story line make me happy.  Of course, Dr. Blake runs a close second, but that's another story.  
  Happy stitching.

  5. Looks like a lovely bundle in the mail! I can see that quilt pattern made up in those batiks, or your pretty florals.
    Christmas Pinwheels looks great.
    I caught an episode of Miss Fisher recently. Very well done. My recent PBS favorite is Death In Paradise.

  6. Oh soft squishy packages are so much fun!!! And I'm a batik lover. You'll have fun with those. I love the Doctor Blake series too! Keep seeing the Miss fisher ads so will have to DVR it asap. I mostly listen to novels. Just finished The Orphan Train and Cold Sassy Tree (an absolute treasure of a book) and Patty Janes Jouse of Curl. Who doesn't love ❤️ A well written mystery or interesting characters while creating??

  7. I've been watching Quantum Leap in my sewing room. No cable, and no internet in there, only a DVD and VCR player. I listen to audio books when I machine quilt.

  9. The Miss Phryne Fisher books are even better than the TV Series in my opinion.
