On the road

I've just come back from a weekend workshop in Wagga at Simply Stitches. What a great shop.
It's in part of the old David Jones building and is two stories high. The bottom of the shop is classroom with plenty of room for students. I had 14 over the two days and there were no problems at all - just what the teacher likes! Upstairs is all the fabric, heaps of knitting wool and a longarm machine tucked in one corner.

The girls worked really hard on their large Mariners centres with one busy student getting to the sewing-together stage. Faye looked after us wonderfully and a good time was had by all I think.
I got to do a bit of op-shopping in Cowra and Beechworth and picked up heaps of doilies - more on them later.

This is Judy's from Tuesday class - yum!

Sonia's beautiful embroidered centre

This year at the quilt show there was a break from tradition and we all got to pin our rosettes on our own quilts. Nice idea I thought.


  1. What a great post!! Wagga sounds fun!! Op shopping in Beechworth would have been great! I love the mariners rings laid out on the floor, makes me want to play hop scotch with them. The bright medallion is so much fun!! And a wonderful photo of you pinning on your rosette!!

  2. What a gorgeous mariner's quilt! And I love seeing your prizewinner again. :D
