New Project

In the mail has arrived my first block for MO’s Sue Ross’s BOM..Whirly Gig which I am doing in the Contemporary colourway. It is so exciting but a bit out of my comfort zone so will be a challenge. I may do a practice block before the real thing.


As I was driving to work yesterday I noticed the people down the road had put an eyecatching addition to their garden wall and I had to stop and take a photo. Quilt design?


This Queen loves the sun and also loves to sit as though she is in an armchair- has always done this even before she became a little porky.


It’s a holiday here in Brisbane today for Ekka showday. I still do not understand why we need a Public holiday for a show. It is a big paying day if you work so alot of people request to work. I was not one of those so have a day of sewing and golf ahead.

Hope you all have a good one.
