Butterfly Garden

I love quilter Leanne Beasley's work and I couldn't wait to get started
on her beautiful ButterflyGarden BOM. I brought my sewing machine into the lounge so I could watch the Olympics. I had a great time this morning sewing with my new machine, watching Australia win Gold in the swimming and piecing Blocks 1 and 2 of my BOM.
I have finally finished piecing the small blocks and now I can start to applique the butterflies, hearts and flowers. I received my Sweet Land of Liberty BOM yesterday from Buggy Barn in the US. I am so thrilled with this quilt as I love American themes and naive style quilts - this quilt has it all. I have also joined a pincushion BOM which will start next month so I am looking forward to posting photos of my pincushions. As I was putting my sewing machine back in my sewing room I realised that I had not posted a photo of my new bookcase. I had planned on using it for all my books but as usual I had to display some of my favourite things as well. So it ended up as two shelves for treasures and two for my favourite books. I couldn't take a photo in my sewing room without a photo of my barbies. I (and my friends) have rescued these barbies from op. shops - I just love them all.


  1. Hi Linda,
    I love books and bookcases too! Like your cases. Looking forward to photos of your Wall Hanging. Have you got latest quilting Arts? right at the back is watercolour looking quilt. I love it.

  2. I like your sewing table very much!
    Wow! So many Barbie Dolls! Some need to be clothed yet. 8-)
    I like that wall quilt you are working on. I've seen it on quite a few blogs now...
    Happy stitchings!

  3. You can never have too many books!

    Love your sewing table!
