Happy New Year 2018!

A recap of new quilts and a thank you to all of the shops, class attendees and events,

as well as the many that supported me over the past year.


Wishing everyone a  Happy New Year & all the best for 2018.

I look forward to visiting and teaching at lots of my stockists in 2018

and creating many new designs already on the drawing board.

More Class Up-date!

Another recent class, Twilight Clematis at Lily Lane.

These lovely ladies were busy making 3D flowers.

Thanks for the fun day.



Also got to spend some time at the Ninety Mile Beach.

A favourite spot of ours and incredibly we had the beach

to ourselves on this beautiful spring day.




All the spring flowers were in full bloom,

including this gorgeous pink blossom.

Class Catch- up!

The gorgeous ladies in my Baltimore Album class at

The Sewing Bee Cafe have been busy

completing their blocks before the next class.

Looking forward to seeing all of their blocks come

together in the next couple of months.



As have the ladies in my Primrose Manor class,

also at The Sewing Bee Cafe. I love that there is such

diversity of fabrics in both classes.

Lakes Entrance Weekend Retreat!

Spending some time with these lovely ladies from all over

Victoria on retreat at the beautiful Lakes Entrance,

organised by Lily Lane.



Who doesn’t love a weekend of stitching, sewing,

catching up with like minded friends and making new ones.

Show and tell after lunch, these star blocks produced from the morning and

with Jen displaying blocks for her version of Illusions.



Another show and tell this week is from Lynne,

Love those bright colours, thanks for sharing Lynne.

Finished quilts & Show and Tell!

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.

Stitching by the fire


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.
