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.

Too many to choose from........lol.......

Does anyone else have too many projects on-the-go that makes deciding on which to work on a problem?

......I have been busy working on a large variety of sewing projects this week whilst on holidays.......

My Lancaster quilt of Sue Daley's..........check out those long clamshell borders....I've done 2 rows out of 6 on all 4 borders so far....a looong way to go.........

 trying to get my Some Kind of Wonderful quilt happening again......really enjoying this at the moment....

 ......oh and a Ruby jelly roll turned into a Pie style quilt with a dresden plate template set....
too easy.......just need to add borders.......I used my great curved presser foot for the piecing....terrific....bought it at the Fair some time ago........

.....and now to some exciting news.....a while back I won a book from Sharon at Lilabelle Lane as a blog anniversary give-away and it's here, and it's absolutely delightful!!!!!!!

 .............look at all the projects inside................another decision to be made....which one first?????.....those are by far the best decisions we ever need to make I reckon.........
Thankyou so much Sharon, I am loving reading Joanna's story, she writes in such a relaxed fashion it's lovely..........

I hope you are busy in your workspace.....I know of one friend who is busy sorting out the best kind of 'stuff' and that has spurred me on to sort some of my 'stuff' out too............so I'll get to it right now.......

So glad someone else has lots of the go. I have lots of boxes full of projects :) Too much work and no sewing at the moment. All your projects looks beautiful.
