My weekend at Phillip Island

I had a great time over the Mother's Day weekend at Phillip Island. The Patches group treated us well at The Island... There was about 130 women in attendance and all the classes were interesting and went well.
I spent up with bargains at the shops, ate well and sewed into the wee hours of the night...
I caught up with Kerryn from Christmas Creations...

We all know she doesn't like her photo taken. No Kerryn I won't show all the photos and embarrass  you.
Sorry Kerryn.  This will be the only one though.....

I also caught up with a lovely Mother daughter team, Margaret & Melanie, from the Yarra Valley. I hope to see more of them over the next year. I first met these lovely ladies last year and have been keeping in touch over Pineterst with Melanie. It was great to catch up with them....

My great tutor was Maureen Miller.

Her class was the Compass Rose table runner.

 This is my progress so far.

 This is where I got up to on Monday at my next sewing day..

Maureen did a fantastic job being our tutor with this class and I have put down for her leaf class next year.

 This is my second choice for next years classes. A lovely appliqué quilt...

I can't wait to go to the Island next year. Hope I get in...

This time I am linking up with Pink Doxies Pet Project

  5. Your compass blocks are stunning! Going to be a gorgeous runner. I'm with you with all the classes. I was at Phillip Island in 86 to study the fairy penguins. It is a lovely place to work and visit. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone. I hope you post again with progress on this. I'm all admiration for your workmanship.

  6. Jo, Google doesn't like me today, and this is my third attempt to leave a comment. I wonder if you'll get them all.

    Love your paper piecing Compass Rose! So nice that you were able to share a weekend with friends doing what we all love so much. Inspirational, stress-relieving, and fun!

    Thanks for linking up to the Pink Doxies Pet Project Show, and please bring this project back to us when you're done! Can't wait to see the finish.
