In the bag.....

Yippee!!!! My 'Secret' Quilt is done, dusted and in the bag..... The mail bag that is!!!!
I did a mixture of hand and machine quilting on this quilt but now I kinda wish that I'd done the whole thing by hand.... I can't wait to hear what Kellie thinks of it when she gets it in the post sometime next week... Here it is all folded up with a little extra goodness on top..... :)
And here it is all ready to be popped in the post (well almost)....
DH and I are tiling the bathroom in our new/old house over the long weekend so next week my posts will be filled with reno shots of the old farm house..... Be warned, some of the pictures to come next week may create a sudden urge to renovate... LOL!!!

One last thing before I sign off.... I read an amazing article this morning after following a link on Pink Chalk Studio's Blog... You see, I'm one of those people who frequently reassesses things in my life. I find myself worrying if I've spent enough time with the little princess or talked enough with my DH... These are obviously the largest rocks in my pile of 'big rocks' (when you read the article you'll understand) and should be my priority.... Go check the article out and let me know what you think, are you putting your big rocks first????

  1. The quilt looks lovely and can't wait to see your reno pics. We have been busy painting here but it is suburbia and I would love to live out of town... by the way (in response to ???) my hubby has been working in Orange. We lived there for a while, but I grew up in Young, Eugowra etc and now live in the Hunter (not sure for how much longer)!!!

  7. Wow. Thanks so much for the link to the article. DH & I are currently in the midst of making some huge life changing decisions. To put it simply - to tree change or not to tree change? Anyway the article does help put things in perspective.
    Thanks again
    Libby :)

    Thanks for the link too, it was refreshing to read. I try and always put the big rocks first but sometimes those little rocks do get in the way.

  14. I haven't checked the link yet,but it sounds a little like the golf balls and coffee one. I love that one.
    Don't you just love macro!! great shots of your work, this quilt looks gorgeous, i love your little extra touches as well.
    I got a Gutermann tin very simple to yours at Stitches and craft, too cute...as are the clothes for your girl. I haven't seen the wee play fabrics in the roll, handy when mum will make the quilt, Love Tracey
