There was a good display of scrap quilts. So many ideas.

Sorry about the glare. This was a very cute embroidered wool wall hanging.

A beautiful Sashiko vest. It was so well made.

A beautiful Homestead.

Eye Spy Swap is in the mail

These are the fabrics I started with

I have joined in with Val and others for a fun swap.
There is one spot left but you will have to be quick.

All my squares are cut and re stacked into 20 piles.
I have just staggered the top fabric so it looks a bit different

Can't wait to see what I start getting back

My squares are in the bag and on their way.
I wonder how long it will take to get to the USA...

Robinswood Homestead High Tea at Robinvale.

My friends and I headed out for the day. An hours drive later and we arrived at Robinvale.
A beautiful home with lovely gardens.

It was a lovely homestead. Situated on the banks of the Murray River.
We had a beautiful day out. 

Look at this yummy chicken and veggie soup that was served for lunch.

Having a day out with friends...

Look at this amazing spread. All these beautiful cakes were what were included in our entry ticket with a cup of tea/coffee.

Lake Cullulleraine Quilting Retreat

Oops, I think I got the dates to post wrong . Oh well it's a double post time.
Anyway, this was our view while on retreat. The pelicans are resting on the fence.

The sunset is beautiful over the lake.

My little letters , abc quilt, is now basted for quilting..
I am very happy with this one.

I got the outside rows on to my bow Ties quilt. It now measures 80" square.
Now for basting and quilting.

And what I got done on the weekend.
2 baby quilts cut, sewn & basted...
1 ABC, LITTLE LETTERS, baby quilt finished the blocks, stitched together & basted.
Thanks to Sheryl at 
For the pattern

Retreat baby quilt sewing

I saw this beautiful panel at Spotlight. It is for cushions or wall art.
Found the fabric to go with it.
Then time to think.
Luckily all the fabric was 40% off.

When we got it home and really looked in better light the top left was really pink against the peace colour in the other fabrics. So a decision was made to leave it out.

This was a little bit of work but I got there in the end.
It was a challenge as I had a size in mind that I wanted.
I got there in the end.
Just needs binding.

I just love making this design. 
Using 2.5" strips, and 2 borders on each block.

Haha.. We have changed our minds with some colours and the baby is a girl.
Off shopping again.

Then..... WAIT FOR MY PARCEL TO ARRIVE with 200 different squares for me to enjoy.

Thanks Val for your trouble.

You all know I sew for Aussie Heroes, so does Sue from. 

Well Sue has put out a plea for HELP.


This is the quilting map fabric panel from Spotlight. It is now discontinued. I am sending out a plea to my Aussie Hero Friends to look in their local Spotlights to see if they can get them for me. They are currently on sale for $4.80 per panel. None left in Spotlight South Morang and Preston.

Please email Sue from her blog if you can help.

I was lucky enough to find 7 of them at my local store.
They will be in the mail tomorrow.
