A Pieceful Life

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?

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

How Was Your Weekend?
I have just had the best weekend down at

It was perfect for me.
All along the Lorne foreshore there is currently an Event.
Lorne Scultpure 2011
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
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
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
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.
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?
