And now we are up to date

There were a few others quilting related events that have happened since our new little boy entered our lives.

I was lucky enough to be able to go to AQC when Lachie was 2 weeks old were we had a lovely time, it was quite a weird experience in that at times neither Esther (who was "wearing" 4mth old Hannah) and myself (who was "wearing" Lachie) could take a step without some one coming over to gush at the babies. I was quite restrained with my spending this year compared to last year I only brought a kit to make Lachie "Little Monsters" quilt and the pattern for the King George III quilt seen here I am using all my stash of material for my DJ quilt to make this one.

I then went to Stitches and Craft Show once again "wearing" Lachie were I was even more restrained with my purchases. All I bought were the patterns to make these little creatures


I have since made a trip to spotlight to buy the necessary fleece to make these three little friends for my boys so can now add this as well as my other purchases to the projects pending list.

Speaking of list as you may have seen I have cleaned up my blog and it now shows three lists, Completed projects, Unfinished Objects (these are quilts and other projects that have been started at some stage) and Projects Pending (these are quilts and other projects that I have all the requirements for but have yet to start) as you can see I don't need to make any other purchases for a long while :)
While I have been recuperating from Lachie's birth I have made a start on the first block of the King George III quilt. Here is the completed inner circle for the first block.

The final event that occurred was the inaugural meeting of the Melbourne Modern Quilting Guild, I was unable to take my camera along so you will have to pop over to Esther's blog to see some snaps of the day. It was a lovely day with 29 like minded quilty ladies, and while I did not get a whole lot done, due to attending to Lachie's needs and my post-pregnancy brain moment when I stitched a hexagon flower together incorrectly (she last picture on Esther's post) I am eagerly awaiting next month meeting as well as our first committee meeting next week.

Khris - No just hand pieced goes together really easy so far
