Georgia and I are having a ball and squishing lots of fun things into our weekend away. 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.

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!!!

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 involved....it is very cute!!

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...

In April this year I spent a lovely birthday weekend at Pauline's Calico Crossroads Patchwork Shop creating this quilt. The tutor for the weekend was the lovely Kerry Swain.
I think it was called Calico Wedges. The actual quilt pattern had another border on it, however I left that off as it would have been too large for the wall I wanted to hang it on.
The quilting was done by Miss Sarah, from Patchwork Plus....she is an absolute wizz!!
This is the first reproduction quilt I have made for a long time and I am loving the fabrics again.
Luckily I didnt give away my reproduction fabric stash as I was tempted to do....
