Last week

Last week was a busy one...felt like I hit the ground running after working 5 days at the Darling Harbour Quilt Show on the Margarets Fabrics stand. Had a great time.
Thankyou to the lovely Leanne from Mount Vincent Quilts who took a photo of Beth in front of her winning quilt for me.
Mum and Dad came over from the Central West to visit and Mum took Beth down to the show on the Sat.
Dad celebrated his birthday while he was here...happy birthday Dad!

A lot of work has come in recently so I need to get busy now and get caught up.

"All About Sewing Junior Sewers" met at the shop yesterday and the girls are busy ,busy.
Beth made a cushion with a ZIPPER!!!...yes a dreaded zipper!...and it turned out well.

Courteney finished her quilt, all but hand sewing down the binding...which she didn't enjoy.
Lara started a new quilt and Charlotte only needs to put the final border on her dissappearing nine patch.
We will be having 2 school holiday classes at All About Sewing both on the  Thursday from - 1pm. the 4th and the 12th July.
Have a great week

Finally Finished !!!

I actually called my Sydney Quilt Show entry "Finally Finished". I am SO glad that it is finished.
I started the quilt when I attended a  mystery quilt weekend at "Rags to Riches" in Cessnock when it was still open....maybe 5 years ago...and it sat unfinished for a while.
I completed the quilt top last year at Quilt Camp...and then quilted it JUST NOW!!!
I'm hoping it hangs flat...I think I overdid the loopy/loop stipple in the centre which is making the borders do a little ripple.

....too late's gone to my drop off lady!

Missy Beth also finished her junior entry....a big efffort....she called it "Shufflin' " as she felt she shuffled the fabrics around so much.
Love how bright it is.

Will be working on the "Margarets Fabrics" stand at the Sydney Quilt Show next week...drop by and say hi!

Last Minute!!!!

Leave something to the last minute????? ....Me?????....... NEVER!!!
This week saw me finishing my Sydney Quilt Show entry...luckily I work well under pressure.
Finished the week off with a trip to Sydney to the Australian Quilt Market with Ally, Jody, Leanne and Monique. Had a great day...saw lots of new stuff...too much gorgeous new stuff....
Have a great week.
