hellofromcat  Creating fun sewn + quilty things in Brisbane, Australia. And I love a wine with @hellofromvee

Finally sewing again after school-holiday-enforced time away from the machine. πŸ’ƒπŸΌFirst up are two cushions for prizes for a school fundraiser lunch - I used Rachel's @rachelwoodenspoon 'raspberry kiss' tutorial, but upsized it, then added a couple of borders so they would finish at 18". Cushion-styling for photos is not part of my skill-set, so I took several pics instead 😁 #raspberrykissblock

For all local-ish gelato-loving peeps - my sister-in-law Gabrielle has just started an ig page for her gourmet gelato business @gelatoandco - she's been in business less than a year, and is already an award-winner πŸ¦πŸ… Gabrielle uses fresh ingredients to make *seriously* delicious gelato. As Molly Meldrum would say - do yourself a favour, and take a look πŸ˜‹

Brisbane is freezing + foggy. Wishing we had Mum + Dad's fireplace for the evening - with the added bonus of being handy for marshmallow-toasting πŸ”₯🍑

Finished! - thanks to school holidays + extra reading time. πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ“š It's so great, and I'm now re-reading all my Helen Garner books, and think it's time to brave up and read 'This House of Grief' - has anyone read it? Thoughts? #bookchat

'Rites of Spring' blocks for Merran @123bluejumper #carecircle #dogoodstitches

It's week 15 (I think?) in the Long Time Gone Sewalong. These pineapple blocks are my absolute favourite + took an absolute age to sew - I think that's the same for all of us. Scroll through all ten pics - there's a bunch of teeny fussy cuts hiding away. βœ‚οΈβœ‚οΈβœ‚οΈ

Week 14 + 60 degree triangles for the Long Time Gone sewalong.
Things went a little pear-shaped this week - my triangle blocks are too big - but they're staying that way, such is my loathing of unpicking + resewing. It's meant a few extra sashing strips here + there as I sew the blocks together, but that's all working in with my plan of making the quilt a little bigger πŸ€” ... πŸ”ΊπŸ”» #longtimegonequilt #longtimegonesal #hellofromcatltg #jenkingwell

The non-stop rain couldn't keep us away from the local school Fete β˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈ Do you recognise @hellofromvee's awesome work on the program + Chance Cellar stickers? πŸ‘ŠπŸΌβœ¨πŸŽ‰

Well that pineapple-depapering experience took two whole episodes of 'Designated Survivor' πŸπŸ“ƒ #longtimegonequilt #longtimegonesal #hellofromcatltg #jenkingwell

Let's continue with the morning's lack of accuracy, with the admission that I'd forgotten to include the third Flying Geese block in my previous pics. So here it is - it's long + skinny, so very hard to take a good IG pic, particularly in a hurry. Happy Accurate Wednesday to you. πŸ¦†πŸ¦†πŸ¦†πŸ¦†πŸ¦†

Week 13 in the Long Time Gone sewalong - time for my accuracy-nemesis, Flyjng Geese - in the spirit of which, here are some equally not-accurate geese πŸ¦†πŸ¦†πŸ¦†πŸ¦†πŸ¦† #longtimegonesal #longtimegonequilt #hellofromcatltg #jenkingwell
