Welcome to Shiralee Stitches. I live on a cattle farm in Australia with my family.
I am passionate about all things fabric so much so I started my own online and mobile store. Link is on the sidebar to my store. I teach patchwork classes and take my shop to quilting and patchwork groups and also attend various craft markets.
I love English Paper Piecing, applique, machine quilting, working with woven wools. I have started making my own designs which I love.

I've Been Busy in the Sewing Room....

I've had a blissful few days at home looking after the farm while all the 'boys' (hubby and son) have been camping and mustering cattle, and the DD has been staying at her friends. So...there's no prizes for guessing what I've been doing .........

This will soon be a shaggy flannel quilt. I have enough fabric for 2 lap quilts so one will go to the reffle for our local Cancer Council Morning Tea later in the year.

I've been making Lynette Anderson's  My Home Or Yours quilt for too long now.....do you know that feeling??....Like it's gone on for too long so " better get your skates on" !!?? Did a bit on that....lovely English Paper Pieced borders....
And a new start........bought a pattern in Nundle....one of Anni's.....can you guess what this will become....come on all you "Nundle Girls" you must know?????



I have used a charm pack called Evening Mist for this. I really love the mix of colours all misty-like.
Tomorrow I will reveal my completed candlewick quilt at my local craft group.....not too many quilters amongst the ladies but it's always good to share, so I'm looking forward to that.
I hope you're all managing some time to sew........

I think I know what it is! Is there a stitchery pocket on the side? I want to make one too. I have the stitchery drawn out but too many things to do first. I'll watching to see if I am right, and of course checking it out to see how pretty it is.
