Always busy!

Supernova blocks from my Tocal workshop. So different!
Last weekend I travelled to the Hunter Valley for  a weekend workshop for Busy Needles patchwork shop in Singleton. We stayed at Tocal which is an Ag college just outside Maitland in a beautiful rural setting. 

There were a few different projects happening - NYBs, 30s Wheels with lovely embroidered centres ...
A few hints of what to expect for the two days!
Thanks Janet for inviting me. 
Below is Jennie's Scrap HPpy for her sister. The blue in the quilt is denim from their dads jeans. And the centres are Jennie's embroideries all about sisterly love. It is a beautiful present for a significant birthday. 

Susan had a finish the same day. Her Sunflower quilt top with the perfect border. She's not a fan of hand piecing but has done a great job!
Then it all happened this week! I filmed another DVD for Quilters Companion magazine. A bit nervous to start with but the crew is so lovely and normal and Clare is delightful. The whole hair-and-makeup thing doesn't agree with me but we soldiered on and it was  great day. The proof will be in the viewing won't it. I hope you like it!

This is a block from the quilt. And Clare called it "a psychedelic set" so there's lots of colour.
