Just home from the Melbourne Craft Show. Lots of new gadgets there. The sewing foot that sews circles from Punch with Judy looked to be getting the most attention. As I seem to have the rest of my year filled with sewing projects I didn't buy too much. Just a couple of fabric bundles.gee the first photo is a bit blurry isn't it.
This was afternoon tea at the crown. There is this amazing shop there that has about 50 different cakes and cheesecakes all freshly made and to die for. I had a Mars Bar Cheesecake.
I would like to say I had made these this week but that would be a lie. They are just a couple of the quilts on display.
Hope you all have a very productive weekend. I'm off to do some cutting.
Over the last few weeks I have had email and typepad problems that no one could fix. Just as mysterioulsy as the problems arrived they left again. No idea why.
Sydney was a great weekend as always. My online patch and chat group was formed nearly 6 years ago by Carey Golledge. The previous owner of Honeysuckle cottage. There are 20 members from Australia, 2 from America and 1 from New Zealand. We have a yearly catch up at the Sydney Craft show in June for those who can make it. 3 years ago we all met except for one lady.
Here is a photo of a quilt we made for Julie. Claire organised the quilt by sending us all the cream fabric and instructions to make it in blue colorings to go in her lounge room. Julie is on the floor. It is amazing what our group can do from different parts of the world.
On the Saturday night we met for dinner and had show and tell. This is Claire's quilt she made from a 2 and a half inch swap we had, Years before Moda made them famous by calling them Jelly rolls. Here is Bennie's disapearing nine patch quilt. These are my favourite colors and I just wanted to take it home with me.
That's all my photo's from Sydney. Have more postings of my latest purchases to follow soon. Have you had a relaxing and productive weekend. Anne-Maree
