Lots happening

Lots of class action lately...
Daphne's All at Sea coming together

Susan's sashiko combined with a great dragon fabric. Pity her daughter didn't like it and chose something else!

Laurel's Ludlow Beauties, a version of my NYB pattern

Another All at Sea from Rosemary

Then it was off to quilt camp for a weekend of fun and food.
These are the blocks from my workshop - big 20" circles.

 It's a great design for large prints and fussy cutting as you can see.

This is my version below - Snowball Circle.

One minor incident when Gai cut thru her machine cord! No injuries just a blown fuse and ruined cord. How lucky was she!

Michelle made a start on Emperors Wheel...

while Sharon combined two past camp workshops into one quilt - what a great idea!

Kathy has finished her Birds in Paradise - loving that border fabric.
And Pat's broderie perse was amazing - even thorns on the stems!

Don't forget to look at our Springwood Quilt Show blog for updates on the raffle quilt for next year. We are also on Facebook and Instagram - @springwoodquiltshow

Road trip

DH and I headed off recently on a road trip to Adelaide via Broken Hill.
These are just a few of the highlights on our journey of nearly 3000 kms there and back...
Amazing Living Sculptures in the desert outside Broken Hill - what a great city!

Entrance to Cobar, a mining town in outback NSW.
On to Marion Bay in SA, It was so cold and windy we didn't even get to the beach!

Good timing after the pub!

In this little village was a shop, servo and the pub - great pizzas from this Aussie pizza oven.

Adelaide Mall - interesting bits everywhere and what a lovely city. I'd go back in a flash.

Found a button shop in the Royal Arcade. There were two walls of buttons like this!

Glenelg beach on a beautiful sunny day.

Victor Harbour.

Fabric backdrop in the window of a boutique - it was 2m long and to  die for!
Nice to have some time away - now it's back in full swing.
Off to quilt camp today for the weekend.
