A Little Plug For My Kiwi Quilting Buddies

I love handmade goodness. I especially love giving handmade goodness. Catherine recently made these gorgeous knitting rolls and I quickly snapped them up for the knitters in my life... (apologies for the poor photo quality - I've been using my phone)

If you haven't already, I'd suggest checking out Catherine's blog... she's one clever Kiwi! Thanks Catherine!

I also purchased these sweet masks from my friend Viv. Aren't they sweet? I've popped them in the cupboard for a rainy day when the boys need something new to keep them quiet and happy!

Viv also kindly sent some little fishies for the boys. They're magnetic and I just need to make up a couple of wee fishing rods so we can go fishing. Thanks Viv! You can check out Viv's blog and shop here.

Earlier this year I gave away a bunch of works in progress that I knew I just would never get to. I sent Sarah a wee unfinished quilt top that had lost it's way and some more Odyssea and I was so excited to see the finished quilt top. You can read all about it here. Thanks Sarah for making such a beautiful quilt to gift to someone special affected by the Christchurch Earthquakes!

There are lots of other clever quilting Kiwi's... I'm building up my little list to the right there! If you're a Kiwi and you're not there yet, just give me a nudge and I'll add you! I know I'm missing a few and I'd love to have you there too!

It's another wet weekend here. I plan to finish up my Bliss quilt top - hopefully I'll have enough white left! Eep! I'm itching to start something new... namely this quilt in this

 Tomorrow we're hoping to take the boys out to the steam engine. I hope it's not raining!!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Hi Lara What a sweet post! Thanks for sharing about other kiwi bloggers I will go check them out very soon... and yup I'm a kiwi blogger too!
    Oh those owl masks are just the thing for young boys and what a clever idea to take them fishing when it's raining!

  2. I would love to be a Kiwi by association - my sister married a Kiwi, and I did get her to do my fabric shopping in Spotlight the other weekend!! Thanks for your help with that x

    Love those masks!

  3. Argh! I didn't know you were planning to make the 'Swoon' quilt with your LouLouThi! That's waht I was going to do too! (not that I've bought any yet...still being good...). ;-)

  4. those knitting rolls are in one of my fave fabrics!!!

  5. Thanks Lara:) Hey love that pretty pile of fabrics and the pattern you've chosen.
