I am now back in Brisbane after three weeks of travelling around Vietnam and the a couple of days in Singapore. It is taking me awhile to seetle back into the daily routine but I have been catching up on all the blogs- you have all been very busy and what great results to see. It looks like I have my work cut out for me on the Sue Ross BOM so I will have to make a start before Block 3 arrives.
In Vietnam I came across a Quilt Aid shop which is a project set up to support disadvantaged rural women. I was very interested in what this project was about and how it supported these women. You can learn more about the project at here.
Of course I had to buy a couple of quilts to support the project and I fell in love with these- the lap quilt I managed to pack in my suitcase and the bed quilt is in the post.
I will post more pictures of the local women and the amazing embroidery they do-very clever women and I spent many hours speaking to them about their life.
