well stacked!

I hang my exhibition tomorrow!
Am I getting excited??
I have taken down all the quilts:
I have had them hanging in case they drop a bit, 
and they have.
Just a bit.
So I have hung up some "old" ones.
Oldies but goodies!

I think the new ones make a good stack though.

No sewing.

No lists.

Happy Australia Day from me!

 With all the big quilts
for my exhibition

I am making hand stitched labels for them all.
I have always tried to label my quilts.
I wish I had numbered them!

It's hard

It's difficult to name your children.
There's this one and this one

 and this one.

It's only small....
48cm or 19" square.
The mountain climber thinks it looks like those things from the "space invaders" game.

having fun

While I am still hard at work finishing things 
and doing the paperwork
for my exhibition
I have been having a  bit of fun making these
little jewely rolls.

 I love to travel and try not to take too much.
Don't we all?
But I always take something to dress up...

 So the plan is...
I wrap my special piece in this roll and put it in a shoe for protection!

In case you want to ask
these little darlings measure approximately
7 3/4" x 4"   or   19.5 x 10cm

Summer break

Are you having a summer break?

We did for a few days.


Middle of the New Year break but there is room on this beach.

Nice to dip my toes in the water.

Now i just have to get organised.
There is still  the paperwork to do
and I was never good with homework!

Happy New Year!

I have an announcement to make....

I have a solo exhibition this month!
Lots of the work you have seen in my blog recently
 is making up this collection of quilts and a few little things.
I am very excited.
And nervous.
But if you are in the area come and have a look.
