Once again, I am participating in the Grow Your Blog party, kindly organised by 2 Bags Full. Click on the icon over there (points to the right.....) to be redirected to Vicki's website.
I participated in the Grow Your Blog last year, and I met lots of lovely people, so I thought I would have another go!
I'm Suzie, I am Australian, and whilst I've tried many forms of needlework, mostly I'm quilting now. In a previous life I once share owned a quilt shop, and I find I still have many UFO's still needing to be finished that were leftover from there. I do love to knit though, and I tend to do that, late at night, when the family has gone to bed and the house is quiet.
I thought perhaps over the next couple of days I might show you some of my last few finishes, so you can get a feel of what my blog is like and decide if you want to follow me or not.
I've always loved 1930s reproduction fabrics, and Aunt Grace are my favourites. I've made quilt top after quilt top in these styles of fabrics.
There are more, mostly still in phases of completion. I tend to hyperventilate if my box of thirties fabrics gets down, as an empty box of thirties prints would be just awful.
I also love Civil War fabrics, and I've made a million or so scrap quilts. I'm particularly fond of Bonnie Hunter designs, so they pop up on my blog a lot.
I'll save the Civil War and the scrappy quilt photos till the next few days, I think, rather than explode your internet browser with all the photos.
I'd love you to comment and leave your blog name so I can pop over and visit you. I'm thinking of having a giveaway, because (in a purely serendipitous quirk of fate) this happens to be my 500th blog post so if you'd like to enter my competition, please leave your name and contact details on this post. I haven't a clue what I will give away yet, but I hope it will be something that will tickle your fancy. I've never done a giveaway before, so this is a new experience for me.
Thanks so much for the visit, if you're new to my blog. And if you're not, if you're a longer time reader, thanks so much for sticking around for 500 posts - I value these new friendships I am making very much.
