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.

Winter Blooms has been very popular this year, with another fun weekend

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.
