We have been waking up to a frost every morning.
We know winter is here.
The poor birds can't even get a drink. Their bird bath is frozen. So out we go and get the ice out, refill with water so we can watch the birds again.
Look at the solid block..
|Look at this ice. It is so solid and cold....|
We have turned the block upside down. You can she the Moulder shape of the birdbath

WE CAN REALLY TELL WINTER IS HERE......
I was lucky enough tor a friend to take me out to a local quilt show. It was in Daylesford in Central Victoria. It was held by the Spa Quilters.
There were some lovely stalls as well as a raffle quilt and members sewing away. A lovely afternoon.
The embers had made an entry quilt with sewn mini quilts on them..

Here are only a few of the quilts...
|This hexagon quilt was hand stitched using the EPP method.|
|Hand quilting with PERLE thread was very popular at this show|
Very effective keeping the hexagon theme.
|I love the simple design of the yachts.|
Great for the boys...
|AND FOR THE BEAR LOVERS. VERY SUBTLE COLOURS|
|A great use of scraps to make all these FLYING GEESE.|
|I love the wedding rings on the background fabric. |
The way the border colours are placed are stunning.
There are so many ways of making quilts, so many techniques, sizes and finishes.
We are a great, talented group of people.
