Stash Manicure Giveaway....

I love to do a good scrappy quilt (well, I haven't done too many but my Mum has and I love the look of them)!!

I have heaps and heaps of scraps and I know when I am ready to do SOMETHING with them, I will check out the posts from Stash Manicure's blog.

At the moment, they are having a GIVEAWAY!  Yep, just click on over (the link in the 'giveaway' word) and check it out!  Not only will you not be disappointed with all the advice, hints and tips BUT you will even go in the draw for a great book and some fabric (that looks like it could just go really well with my stash).

I have been noticed!!!

Do you remember this block??

Well, Shayla is a guest writer on the 'Quilting Bee Blocks' blog and has written about this little heart block of mine. 

Check it out here ~ I know I did and I am thrilled that it is a well loved block over at Flickr.

Thankyou so much Shayla for your wonderful comments!!

I think I just made it in time to show SMALL in a photo for the Snappy Friends challenge (it is 12.16am Sunday!!)

I love macro photos and the following photo is my favourite that I have taken to date.  I love it when it is really big and you can see fully the glossy effect of the puddle ....

It is so small that you can see just a small part of the tread from a car tyre!  I loved the glossy effect of the mud and the tiny leaves that look like they are imbedded in resin.

Here is another small made into something big.....

This is from my Mothers quilt she is hand piecing.  These are 1/2 inch hexies and are so adorable.  To date it has taken her just over 2 years!!  She calls it her "Insanity Quilt".....must be in the blood as I am now starting my own 1/2 inch hexie quilt.

Here is a bigger picture of it.  I just love the multi-coloured border, don't you??

Check out Snappy Friends for more smallness....
