AQC- A fun weekend in Melbourne.

A wonderful AQC in Melbourne this weekend with lots of fun ladies.
Shopping, chatting, quilting, eating and a couple of wines. 

Some of my favourite quilts at the exhibition and some fabric purchases that I just had to have.
A brief catch up with Fiona and Gail- was lovely to see them- longer next time. 

And a trip to Melbourne just wouldn't be the same without seeing my dear friend, Little Red Hen (Jan) I was also thrilled to catch up with Granny Loz and her friend Claire. 
And then there are my old stitching buddies and fellow Jetstar companions.
I wouldn't wish to spend 6 hours of waiting with any other ladies in an airport lounge than
Leanne and Meredith. x

Visiting Blogging friends in Ballarat, visiting the Gold mines of Soverign Hill, shopping, seeing Grease, and to top it off a great dinner with friends at the Stokehouse and a spectacular sunset on St Kilda Beach.

Wee Play

My Wee Play quilt is having a little turn at hanging above the Singer in the hallway.  It's a little bit small but I love the bright colours and it makes me feel very "Springy" It can stay there until I bring out a Christmas quilt. 
Sarah has quilted the Wee Play beautifully for me. Thank you Miss Patchworkplus!!!

Happy Halloween

I love Halloween and all things "Witchy" but as a rule we do not celebrate 
Halloween in Australia.
I have been looking for tasteful (non-plastic/Spotlight) Halloween decorations and have been disappointed.
So over the last few weeks I have been making my own Halloween mini-quilt.
The witch in the picture in me, dressed up for Book-Week at school last year and the bright panel fabric is my one purchase from Spotlight.
I am going to use this fabric to back my Black Jack Quilt.  
And here is the completed quilt, already to be quilted.
It is becoming quite funny at our house. As soon as I lay a quilt on the floor and get the camera out to take a picture Milly turns up.
It is as if she feels she must be is very cute!!

Granny squares.

My Granny square quilt is finished and I am so pleased with it.
Thanks for quilting it for me Sarah. 
I am sewing along enthusiastically again, but everything is a Secret at the moment.

Wee Spin

Last Saturday night I was on "Pick-up Georgia" duty from work and needed to keep myself busy until 1am so I walked into the sewing-room and grabbed the first unfinished kit that I saw.....
It was a Wee Play jelly-roll in a tin with a Wee Spin pattern.....

I had a lovely evening- cutting, sewing, drinking coffee and listening to my music...
