Small Project

I am Maria from  Life on the Block . Hubby and I live on 5 acres between the bush and sea in a small crayfish/tourist town in Western Australia..

I sewed clothes for many years but started quilting 1999 and find that more enjoyable..

Have blogged since 2009 and made many online friends and have had the pleasure of meeting some in person.

It's so nice to be joining in for my third Stitch-A-Long. Will be fun doing Michelle's " Holly Cottage Christmas Quilt" with Fiona , Raewyn ,Chooky and Susan cracking the whip if we don't get our monthly project done each month...

For May we were asked to choose a small project from  Michelle's book and I made the "Candle Mat"



Didn't have 11 small green buttons to finish it off... Will go to the Op Shop and see what they have..

Hugz Maria :)
