I don’t know how it happened really, but yesterday I started a new quilt I had no intention of making yet! When I’m working at my computer I always have a scrapbook or graph pad next to me so I can doodle or sketch ideas as they pop in my head. Sometimes I look at… Read More Oops!

to everyone who chimed in to help find this fabric. I’ve got a few metres on order now. While I probably only need a metre or two, I’ve decided to get four, as well as some other treats. Unfortunately for my purse, it was an Australian store so that meant Australian dollars, more expensive than… Read More Fabric found! Thank-you
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!

the 2011 Australian Quilt Study Symposium hosted by Quilt Study Group Victoria and all I can say is Wow! I travelled down from Castlemaine by train to ‘The Immigration Museum‘ where the two day symposium was held over the weekend.

Life has been a bit busy of late, with lots of quilting adventures. So what have I been up to since last I posted you ask? Well I ran up some very simple blocks for a simple quilt but am yet to find Kona Expresso (a very dark brown) anywhere and of course that and… Read More Spring catchup
