What a year!

2020 wow, what a year so far.

Horrific bush fires followed by some beautiful rain on drought stricken land and now the Coronavirus. We will get through this and come out well on the other side, whenever that may be.

Now, I’m into my 3rd week without classes, a very odd quite time. FaceTime and phone calls are just not quite the same as the hands on that I’m used too.

It took me a few days to get my head around the fact that I suddenly had all this spare time. Time that I didn’t have to work on all the ideas and projects that have been floating around in my head. Now! I have the time to plan and make new projects, new classes, new patterns and I’m into it.

Firstly I needed to complete a few things I had started or planed.

No 1 on my list was to make a cover for the quilting machine. From my stash I took a tub of 2 1/2” squares and started alternating colour and neutral till I got the effect I wanted. 396 squares later I’m very pleased with the end result.

There’s lots more I have been doing, but that will have to wait for another day.

Keep sewing and stay safe.

And June continues.

At the end of June I travelled to Muswellbrook to present a 2 day mixed workshop to a group of fabulous ladies, they had chosen 2 different quilts and 3 different bag.

Over the 2 days each lady progressed beautifully with there projects, there was lots of conversation and giggles along the way.

The ladies organised delicious morning teas and lunches.

It was a most enjoyable couple of days.

Enjoy the photos.
