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.

Tis the Season and ...a new project !

Oh boy! I can't believe I've been absent from blogging for soooo long. Just been busy with life in general.
I have been keeping the sewing fingers busy with the fun little Stitch-a-long blocks and so here's a peek at my May blocks.....

These are a joy to stitch being one colour thread to worry about.
....and aren't they just too cute!!.......
I was a little naughty a while back and bought a couple of books that I'd been admiring for a while.....
....and then I confess I was even more naughty and visited an online shop to order this bit of yumminess so I could make something from the book...well, I needed it didn't I ???? How can I use the book without the fabric??!!
After looking longingly through the books I've decided on a small project to start me off......how does this look......

It will go perfectly on the wall in my old home.
Now I'm off to the tracing table.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend spending time doing what you love.
Raining here today (trying to send some to Chookyblue.....got it Chooky?) so perfect sewing weather......
