A bit of stamping today and maybe some quilting too...

This morning while my Nan came for her weekly 'cappa', I made these....... It usually takes me a good couple of hours, as I do them in bulk! I am yet to put the centre flower/button on...... just waiting for the 'drops' to set!

On Friday night, I put the last borders on my Stacked Coin Quilt. I have had it done for about 2 weeks apart from the outside, top and bottom borders! This afternoon I hope to attach it to my frame ready for me to quilt it! I am happy with the way it has turned out, though others will disagree (Dennis & Roseanne both agree it is BLAH!!) LOL

Also, I would like to welcome Lisa to blogland! We have been chatting via email on and off for quite a while now and she has now taken the plunge and started her own blog! YAY!! She is another Tassie Girl..... from the East Coast!
Anyway, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and have find time to be 'creative'!

Hi Sarah, the quilt looks great. I love the colours. My second baby quilt (in pinks) is almost finished. All I have to do is quilt it and put the binding on. Should really be doing it now....

WOW is all I can say.. I have been looking through your Blog & the quilts & little bags are just amazing. Your a very talented lady. Of course the stamping looks great as well. Good old Stampin' Up!. I am happy to see that you have used the things that you purchased from us. Gee have to give Martyn a bit of a plug.. hehehe. He said that he had been on your blog and it looked great but I didn't realise just how professional it looks. Makes the blog that I am trying to do for him look rather boring. Oh well have to start somewhere I suppose.
You inspire me to want to make a little 12 x 12 quilt with some of the squares stamped & coloured in. But I would not have the foggiest idea whare to even start. Any tips... I have a sewing machine.. *GRIN* If that helps. I have never done anything like this before. Once again WOW WOW & WOW your work is amazing!!
