Progress and mail

There is so much work in this tiny Red Home pincushion. This is where I'm up to.

And look what came in the mail today.

I have joined the Vintage Sampler club at Carolyn's Quilting Room and this is my first mail out. Sixteen 10" squares and a block pattern every two months. This month features 1862 Battle Hymn fabrics, and many of them are quite divine. I'm building up my civil war stash for a future masterpiece.
Check out my spoilt little dog, who was "missing" at bedtime last night. Cheeky girl.

A busy week for my family next week, so hopefully a quiet weekend.
Mr 11's Tournament of Minds team won in Orange last weekend, so they are off to the University of NSW for the State finals next weekend.
And Mr 15 is competing at Olympic Park for state athletics. Maybe I can sneak in a visit to Quiltsmith................

Have a great weekend.
