Can't wait

Had a busy weekend with classes Sat and Sun. Great to see all the regulars back for the new year at Folklore and lots of new faces at Hobbysew. What a nice shop that is at Kings Park - heaps of fabric, haby etc and everything for the scrapbooker too by the look of it.

Things are hotting up for the Springwood High School quilt show with only a couple more committee meetings til the big weekend. Hope we have covered all bases but it's not til the last minute that it really gets hectic - it's really a fun experience beibng involved in all the behind the scenes planning.

Lots of beautiful quilts to look at, great stalls for retail therapy and the cafe run by hospitality students is THE place to eat. Tryt and come along over the Anzac weekend.

Some more of my quilts with patterns available - just contact me or see my stall at the show.

Big weekend

Saturday was spent in Bathurst at The Home Patch - our first class back after Xmas. All the usual happy faces and lots of lovely fabric for their new project - reproduction new york beauties quilt. It is the second version opf the raffle quilt for the Springwood High School quilt show on the Anzac weekend in April. Do try and come along to see over 200 local quilts and lots of local shops. Demos, cafe - it's bigger than Ben Hur (well almost!).

Here is a pic of the raffle quilt in oriental fabrics made by several members of the committee and quilted by Suzie Anderson of Leura - it is more beautiful in the flesh.

My classes have started back at home too with lovely new tables to work on and room for more students. Some girls are STILL working on their Jane Austen quilts and some are starting new projects.

I have picked up classes at Hobbysew at Kings Park (Blacktown), Camden at Patchwork Mania ans Berrima for the second half of the year - hubby looks so forlorn when I leave him every weekend but that's life isn't it. We all have to do our bit and really the working week is seven days long these days.

News of the devastation in Victoria is so sad isn't it - it could be any of us here in the Blue Mountains - our thoughts are with them all.
