Finally finished Scandinavian Rose. I did love doing these red stitcheries but there were many of them! So good to have this quilt completely finished. I hand quilted it (not very well but it is holding together) and have added a label.

Of course I didn't NEED anything but I couldn't resist. Such fun seeing all the stalls and lovely quilts. Here is what I bought. The hoop is a French General one and I am still getting used to it but it is good. I have just as much trouble getting the spring on as I do with the little flexi hoops!

We enjoyed a lovely weekend in Melbourne. We went mostly to go to the AQC but enjoyed some good meals and lots of laughs. The highlight was our visit to the beautiful exhibition building for AQC.
I was also given this wonderful bag. It is so special and made with William Morris fabric.
I will share the quilts and shopping next time.

It was my birthday last week! Getting very old but lucky to be healthy and able to enjoy lots of good things in life. I was spoilt with cakes! My study group had one for my on Thursday and Amy and the boys made me one in the afternoon. I then had morning tea as well on Saturday morning with the family. Didn't get many photos taken but have lovely memories.
I also caught up with Fiona on Monday for lunch and that was very special too. She gave me these beautiful scissors and a liberty hanky too.
She had also given me this amazing book and purse from her amazing trip to the Tokyo quilt show.

It is fun to stitch the Stitch Therapy blocks each day. Here are my latest blocks.
