March 18 2008 Quilting Newsletter



Hi everyone, your weekly newsletter has arrived. I do hope this newsletter finds you all well and keeping those fingers busy. Another week rushes by, canít believe weíre into the middle of March already! I havenít spent much time on my quilt this week, as Iíve picked up a chest cold and that tends to lay me low for a few days. But the strengthís coming back and by this time next week Iíll be back to my usual manic self!!

I do have a time line for this quilt Ė I want to show it at our Annual Quilt Show in October but of course photos of the completed quilt have to be submitted by August, so I need to get moving. I like working to a time line sometimes, itís a very good motivator. So it will be cutting, cutting, cutting over the next week or so for me.

Iíve been on a ďtea-benderĒ this week. When you go to my most recent article that I posted last Sunday on the BellaOnline Quilting website (hereís the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art55999.asp), youíll see Iíve created a whole new subject titled Teacup, Saucer and Tea Pot patchwork patterns. I must confess, that Iím just a little obsessed with all things tea-cupish from collecting teacups and saucers to anything patchwork and quilting or stitchery with a teacup theme.

I do like a cup of tea. My day tends to be divided by ďtea-timeĒ. I like two cups with breakfast, then another at about 10:30am, then another after lunch. One at about 4:00pm gets me through to dinner time and then one after dinner. Hmmmm! that may be too much tea in one day, but I find a cuppa very soothing and refreshing even on a hot summer day when the humidity is through the roof, a cuppa is still a pick-me-up. Oh, I forgot, when anyone comes to visit, itís always tea-time!

For my newsletter readers only, Iíve saved some of the best ďteaĒ websites for you to visit when youíve got some time. These sites are amongst my favourites, especially the tea cup pincushions. Iíve made several Tea Cup Pincushions, using cups & saucers Iíve found in Charity Shops. They are extremely easy to make, just a glue gun and the usual bits and pieces any quilter will have in her stash of goodies, and they look sensational.

Iíll post these links up onto the main website, when I mail you the next newsletter, so youíll always have access to them.

Here are the website (off-site) addresses for you:

Iíve also created a forum on the BellaOnline Quilting Forum site Ė hereís the link:
If youíd like to make a comment or have an interesting site to recommend please do it there!

Well, thatís all folks, speak again next week.

Cheerio for now
