The Machine that started it all

Hi there, i'm new to the world of blogging, love reading them but when it came to having my own it seemed somewhat overwhealming to begin with. So... what should I put in my first post? Well i though it fitting that I show you my beautiful machine and what she has helped me make so far.

She's an old Janome that was bought from an oppy 9 years ago. Since then we have made bathers, pijamas, my wedding dress, fairy dress ups, batman capes etc. and just last year I decided I would start quilting. I figured if I could make my own wedding dress then quilts would be easy right?

So I made this Quilt for my cousin's little boy Jack. Then I made a heap of library bags for friends and family...

The twins needed School library & chair bags

An most recently I finished Dmans Pirate quilt. I started not long after I finishe Jack's quilt last year. It was an UFO until motivation struck me down in the form of a nagging husband who was in my ear about making something for our own kids for once...

So happy when this baby was completed. And Dman just loves it too.

So now i'm in the process of making xmas quilts for the Twins. Connor chose the quilt I made for Jack but i'm making it bigger for him And Meeka is getting a flower quilt. Will show more later.

And that's it for now. Thank you to the lovely Bianca for making me get a wriggle on and convising me on how easy it is to blog :)
