Wave Goodbye

I feel a bit sad this afternoon.
I sold these quilts at my exhibition, A Pieceful Life
and today they went to their new home.

 I haven't had the sewing machine out this week. 
I have been hand quilting this one.
Handquilting is so relaxing and I am loving this quilt.

 So instead of me here are couple of boxes from the girls I "coach".

Clever aren't they?

Quick quilt

 I finished this zig-zag quilt a little while ago 
but forgot to post it.

Very quick.
Very easy!

And hand quilted.

How Was Your Weekend?

 I have just had the best weekend down at Lorne. Well the weather could have been better.
For some.
It was perfect for me.
All along the Lorne foreshore there is currently an Event.
If you're taking a long weekend next weekend it is well worth the visit!

 Inge King: Link III

 Caroline Kennedy: Nestings

 Janet Forbes: The Cat

 Gaby Jung: Mermaid

These were by no means my favourites. 
I just didn't have my camera all the time

Turning the Corner

I am putting the binding on the Treez quilt at long last

I don't do a lot of applique as I am not into..........
I don't mean that. It's just that I have so many quilts in my head applique slows me down.
BUT I have enjoyed designing and making this quilt.

I am trying to get this finished (hand quilted) before Christmas
this Christmas
Advent even!
It's going well.

 This one has been done by one of my 'girls'.
I think I'll be finished first!

to market, to market....

I went to a local market today
just walking distance from my home

It was in a lovely old building which dates from the Gold Rush days, called the Mining Exchange.

These two ladies had clothes too nice to resist

 And I had to have a couple of bangles from Amber.
I just love going to look at the things these clver people have made.
Can't wait for the next one on December 11th.

Something to celebrate?
I have. It's my birthday today.

Yellow is my colour this year.
I think I will just admire them for a while.

More bright things

It is Spring here today

And this quilt is now in one piece.

I had an overall plan for the quilt but sometimes I just went a bit random.
Random:   1. haphazard, without aim
                   2. with equal chances for each item.
Now for the backing........................

Blue and white and black

What's the weather like where you are?
If you mix back and white and blue what do you get? 
And that's what the weather is like here

Does this cheer you up?
