Here is my fabric stash for my next quilt. I've fallen in love with Anna Maria's colourways. The voile will make some perfect quilts for Singapore. I plan to make
co-ordinating quilts for my girls bunk-beds.
The pieces to the side may not make it into the quilt but will play a bit more once I have cut out the pieces. I plan to make with simple strips and hand quilted with purl thread.
This is my quilt top 2/3rds done. I started this as therapy when I was trying to get pregnant with my first child. I completed the blocks while trying to conceive and during the first few months of my pregnancy. I never got around to sewing on the sashings to join it all together. I am really enjoying the therapeutic nature of hand sewing. The quilt is very pink and green and I think if I made it now I would probably have broadened the colour spectrum in the quilt. I do love the patterns within the blocks

We live in a seventh floor apartment and a month ago we had a little honey eater bird build a very cool nest in the bougainvillea on my bedroom balcony. We have found a similar nest on the back balcony now empty and now there is a new bird with eggs in another nest on balcony.
DH dreamt (nightmare really as we love our three but have our hands full) that I was pregnant again. I dreamt our live in helper was pregnant and was leaving (also a nightmare). What does it all mean. Pics of the very cool nest and the new eggs in the nest
