Catch Up Time !

I know I haven’t been here for a while !

So what have I been up too.?

First Off a couple of weeks back I went To Julies Retreat, it was at Edmund Park out the back of Laidley, about 150 k’s drive but well worth it .


Looking down the driveway, The Jacaranda Trees were beautiful.


The view from the sewing room down into the valley.


The sewing room .


Another Jacaranda tree.

While at the retreat I made a Stable bag for my niece for her 16th Birthday, She wanted green…..


Now that’s green !IMG_0028

I got the lining with the hippo’s from Ikea, they have some lovely cotton fabrics.


This is Jacki’s quilt  for her grandaughter,  Nice and bright. ! On the frame partly quilted.


Finished quilt .!!

I also finished my Big Kaffe Quilt No photos  till now as Our Local group had there quilt show the weekend I was away…. I just got it back and have put it on our bed . I love It D H,s coment Its a bit Red !


I think it does look darker in real life  but I love it  and just when I thought I had used most of my Kaffe a friend bought me back lots from Houston, It was kind of a swap I quilted a quilt for her and she gave me the fabric , Thank Leanne I love it !.


Such yummy colours some of these will go into my candied hexagons for sure .

There are a few other things on the boil but I’ll leave those for next time . !

what is it about Jacaranda and wisteria?? Maybe the fact that I have neither. Love it.
Great quilting and clever sewing. Love the close up of Julie's quilt.

What a fantastic parade of projects! You must be so pleased with all your hard work! I may have to 'borrow' your photos from retreat, I didn't even get my camera out that weekend!
