Well I guess it is the holidays but really I have been a bit lazy with this poor neglected blog. And it's not as if I haven't done anything to post about!
I won't bombard you all with a million things. Just a few.........
Cathy and I taught another children's class at Amitie last week and these are the completed samples for the kids to work from.
This one is Chloe's.
And so is this!
I love the little crab!
If you go here you will see what the girls in our class made. It never fails to surprise me how clever and creative these kids are. They always have a very strong opinion about what they want and their choice of colour. They really did the most wonderful job.
Chloe has also had her machine out making another pin cushion for a special friend. She is still learning but getting more adventurous. I think we might try a simple skirt next.
And I have been doing some quilting of this quilt.
A year is nearly up and I still haven't finished but it's getting there.
And I have been working on Chloe's quilt.
I'm sort of making it up as I go along and keep changing my mind. I think I have finally decided on all the fabrics and borders etc. It will most likely become another Audrey & Maude pattern.
And last week I decided to have a go at another quilt I promised a friend a very long time ago.
I'm not sure I like the colours. The blocks are very large (see my foot) and I was going to sash it with cream. But I still think it is a little dark for my friend's taste. I will have a play with something else this week.
So that's it for today. I have other news to report but I shall leave that for another day this week!
Oh and last, but by no means least, I wish to send out a huge congratulations to my friend Kellie who not only appears in the latest issue of Australian Quilters Companion magazine but has also just opened a shop to sell patterns for all her lovely work. Good luck Kellie although I know you are going to be a huge success!
