My annual bus trip to the Craft and Quilt Fair in Brisbane happened yesterday - I had a lovely time catching up with these two - Susan and Michelle. Of course we bumped into a few other people here and there.
Ran out of time for looking at the quilts.... no pictures this time as the sign said so! But they were so inspiring.
I spent quite a lot of time looking at stand up long arm quilting machines.... I am dreaming. Lovely that they let you have a bit of a play …
Meanwhile back at home another 4 Dutch Treat blocks are completed..... oh my gosh I have 8 left to do!!!
Over the weekend Hubz worked hard in our new shade house.... planted various climbers.... I couldn't resist buying a couple of frog ties from our local hardware... can you see them in there?
He also shopped, filled and hung a bunch of hanging baskets.... although it is still dry we are going to try and just get a few plants established.
… and while he was doing that I cut up my black and white scraps into various length strips...
I will work on it to make that quilt showing in the picture ….. actually I made a good start on that on Tuesday when sewing with the girls.
As you can see the basket is almost empty - just a couple of bigger pieces left in there....
… most of them are overflowing….
we also changed the plug (thank goodness for video link and plumber son to talk us though this)
… and I killed a lizard! (not good)
Righto, Gotto Go, back to
dreaming working …...
