New Fabric and Journalling

Hi everyone - school holidays for us in NZ, and we have had lovely sunshine in Palmy North for the past 2 days - my cheeks are pink from the sun, and I was wearing a t-shirt and baring my legs today! Summer is on its way....
Last night it was our Rose City Quilters meeting - and I got a wee prize for my merit award for my guitars quilt. A moda tin and a pattern :Inside the tin - lovely fabric - 40 strips on each side of the tin, all measuring 2 1/2" x 5". The pattern included uses 2 1/2" strips. Happily for me - the fabric is right up my alley....I already have this other moda (and similar) fabric in my stashThe new tin of pieces will hopefully inspire me to make a quilt from these very soon...watch this space (but it is the school hols, so don't expect anything in the next 2 weeks!)
I have also been thinking about doing some more art journalling - so I managed a page today.One of the great things about blogging is that, for me at least, it inspires me to create so that I have stuff to post! Will be working on my next applique block tonight.
Talk to you again soon.....

Yes Lynette, you are right. It is the same for me. Blogging is all about posting and you haven't been doing 'stuff' it is difficult to do a posting.
That was a lovely prize that you won for your
beautiful work. Well done!
