Cold Wednesday

 Another Wednesday night, and the heater wasn't working! Thankfully, the temperatures weren't too frosty, so, armed with a hot cuppa, we still enjoyed the sewing.
Show and tell for the monthly challenge - quilted journal covers.
From left to right - my 'goth' cover, complete with pen holder. Unfortunately, a little too small, but good to practice. I just adore that fabric (Nevermore; Michael Miller), gotta get me some more.
Then Sue's cover, a pretty blue/brown fabric with owls galore! Finally, Tracee's cover, made from wonderful fabric depicting vintage postcards. Love it. Tania was still in the process of finishing hers, so watch this space.
The other show and tell item was Sue's little owl bag,just so cute! Sue's getting really good at this 'free range quilting' business.
The ladies were very kind to help me sew together a quilt top, should have most of it done by next time. Tania was finishing her crochet rug, and starting a new one.
Hopefully there's be heating!


  1. I love your cover Donna, the owl and the word spells is placed just perfectly on the cover. You have done a fabulous job.

  2. such beautiful covers and love Sue's bag you girls are so clever,you all could've warmed up on the exercise bike,lol,lovely work ladies.xx

  3. They all look wonderful!! I forgot about the exercise bike!! I love the different fabrics used!

  4. They are all so beautiful! I must admit that, apart from the obvious bias, I am partial to your journal cover. I look forward to more posts and pics!
