I finally got around to printing my blog books. So exciting to see the blog in print and such a nice way to store the year's happenings.
I managed a very tough job last week and finally tacked the Scandinavian Rose quilt ready for hand quilting. It is not an easy job.....especially on the floor.

I have been a little slack in posting some recent outings. We have had the big boys over the last few weeks on Tuesday so we ended up going to the National Museum on both days.....their choice.
I also enjoyed a lovely lunch out a few weeks ago with the Thursday study group. We enjoyed lots of delcious food at the Burns club.

The second part of Here There and Everywhere came last week and it was such good fun to make. Can't wait for part 3.
Last week and few of the stitching ladies had show and tell. Janet is so amazing at sewing gorgeous retro clothes for her 3 littlies and herself. I don't know how she finds the time but she does an amazing job.

I know! I shouldn't be starting new things when there are many to finish but....it was just too tempting. I have started Here There and Everywhere by Anni Downs. I decided to use my stash so am getting it as a BOM with the pattern and the wool pieces each month. It is harder to use your stash, I am finding but am pleased with my choices and think they look ok. Here are the blocks that make up the first part.

Paddy and I headed to Sydney in June for the craft show at Darling Harbour. We enjoyed an afternoon of shopping, lunch and browsing on Thursday afternoon and then went to the show on Friday. There were some lovely stalls and lots of amazing quilts to see. We especially enjoyed and learnt lots from Kelli from Cutting Cloth. She did demonstrations of raw edge applique and quilting on her stall. Must have a go!!! I bought the gloves she uses and some special fusible web so will definitely try it soon.
It was lovely as always to catch up with Anni and Pete Downs on the Hatched and Patched stall. It is such an inspiring stall! Very special to catch up with Chooky who was working on the stall as well.
