Oops! that sounds bad. I’ve been a very bad blogger! It’s been so long since I’ve blogged I don’t know where to start. So I’ll just post some pics of random things and see how that goes. Margaret & Irene were barely back from their trip to the US when it was time to go… Read More Getting back on the blogging horse!
with 3 parcels! I think I’ve mentioned before that for some years I took a break from quilt-making and buying fabric. That meant I missed some really good fabrics, so when I see something I really love well of course I just have to buy them. Our good friend Sherry in San Antonio recently sent… Read More The Postman came
Last Saturday I caught up with Dorothy & Linda for a coffee after CAG, and was roundly scolded for not having posted recently. While I had many excuses they all fell on deaf ears! As a web developer and trainer sometimes the last thing I want to do on ‘my time’ is be at the… Read More For Dorothy & Linda
Awhile ago I started a quilt that I’ve slowly been working on. Its taken awhile because I didn’t choose all my greens and red at the same time so it’s been a bit of a hunt to find greens and reds that work together. About a month ago Margaret and I spent a lovely day… Read More Texas Rose Baskets
With the Aussie dollar having been so good, couple of weeks ago I went on a small fabric shopping splurge on the web. I picked up some gorgeous Dargate Prussian Blues & Dargate Indigos by Margo Krager at Laptop Quilts as well as some very collectable RJR Smithsonian Grooms Quilt fabric called Cretonne in the… Read More Buy, buy, buy
the last month of spring down here. And it’s been pouring rain all weekend and I have the heater on. Winter is fighting to stay and it’s so incredibly green and wet here in Victoria. I commute on the train to the city to work and its all we commuters talk about, particularly when the… Read More Yea! it’s November
It’s been a very busy weekend what with going to Quilts in the Barn on Saturday, buying fabric in Gisborne on Sunday and receiving 2 parcels of fabric from The States, but more about next post. As the title says I’ve only got one more row of stitches to do tonight and I can drop… Read More Only one more row of stitches!
I shouldn’t really be blogging at the moment as I’ve far too much hand-sewing to do. I’m exhibiting for the first time which means I’ve got 3 sleeves & 3 quilt labels to sew on quilts, and one quilt to bind. Margaret will have finished quilting my medallion quilt by now. I saw a glimpse… Read More Getting ready for exhibition
Back in 1994 when I first started patchwork & quilting I picked up 2 Fat 1/4 bundles of purple, green & brown fabrics. At the time I didn’t really know what I had, like most of us I bought them because I liked them. So that was the start of my slowing dawning interest in… Read More My Smithsonian fabric collection
In the last 18 months I’ve tried not to start any new projects, but to finish the ones I already had on the go. Amazingly, I’ve only broken that rule once, for a cot quilt. This hasn’t stopped me from collecting the materials etc for the new ideas that pop into my head though. One… Read More New Projects
