On a cold winters day we set up
for the stitching day with The Sewing Bee Cafe.
Project for the day was my Clementine bag available in 2 colourways.
No time for me to take pics during the day,
these next pics are courtesy of The Sewing Bee Cafe.
All of these lovely ladies busy with
English Paper Piecing and making 3D flowers.
A very generous gift of this bundle of fabrics,
matches perfectly with others from my stash.
Thank you to every one who attended and
Debbie & Sonia for making this a fun memorable day.
Fabulous class yesterday,
with a fun group of ladies learning to make my
Tree Dahlia and Dogwood Rose 3D flowers.
Join Debbie & Sonia @sewingbeecafe
along with myself
for a day filled with fun, good food & great company.

Be quick, places are limited.
Lots of homework completed at yesterdays
Baltimore Garden class
at The Sewing Bee Cafe.
Loving those bluebirds, both completely different
but both gorgeous.
Show and tell in class was a completed ‘Winter Blooms”
quilt from a class last year this time in batiks.
At a recent sewing day at
The Sewing Bee Cafe, lots of ladies who have been
attending my classes brought along the blocks
they had been working on over the holidays.
(Sorry for the blurry pics)
Beginners Applique class above,
Baltimore Garden class below.
This one waiting for the 3D flowers we will be putting together next month.
I love to see these quilts coming together.
Well done ladies, your blocks are looking great.
Last weekend was spent at AQM,
catching up with lots of lovely store owners
and meeting new ones from here in Australia & overseas.
One of my latest designs “Primrose Manor” was on display
created from the latest Tilda range “Bumblebee”.
Also new, “Floribunda” – tote.
Will post more of my new designs over the next few days.
It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of October
and yet we still need the heater going.
Overnight temps as low as 3°C with rain, hail and some places snow.
The perfect weather to be inside stitching.
This quilt just back from the quilter needs to be bound.
And another day, another quilt that needs binding.
Some show and tell at Lily Lane, Gwenneth has completed her version of Winter Blooms.
A close up of the stunning quilting, by Jennifer at Lily Lane.
Another very pretty version of Winter Blooms, with the applique completed.
Some wildlife from the Aussie bush, where we are staying.
The kangaroo has a joey in her pouch but unfortunately didn’t come out for us to see.
The magpies are residents that we see all the time.
Month three of Baltimore Garden at The Sewing Bee Cafe
and the ladies are bringing in their completed blocks
from the last two classes.
We also had show and tell with this bright and cheerful version
of Winter Blooms. Love to see my designs in totally
different colours and fabrics and this one makes me smile.
Winter Blooms has been very popular this year, with another fun weekend
planned here at Lily Lane in Rosedale.
In this huge classroom and plenty of table space,
everyone has lots of space to spread out without being cramped.
Along with the fun and laughter, lots of new techniques were learnt
and soon 3D petals and flowers started to appear.
Thank you ladies for the fun weekend, would love to see your quilts.
