Oh what fun...

...to spend the day with Gail and Ramona and lots of stitching friends.
I always enjoy these stitching days so much.  The company was fabulous, the food delicious
and the projects divine.

Here's Gail's projects

and Ramona's

(sorry this one is so blurry)
I'm so in love with all four.
These are gorgeous.

You can find the pattern and a fabulous tutorial HERE at Imagine Gnats.  The post was written by Laurel from Sing All You Want.  Huge thanks to both Laurel and Rachael.
Have a happy day

Quilts in the Barn

This year's quilt show at Quilts in the Barn was breathtaking.  Linda asked us not to show whole quilts but it was still very easy to take pictures as every quilt was filled with wonderful detail.  Here's just a bit of what took my fancy.
I missed sharing my visit with Christine, who was busy on the day, but it was lovely to bump into other friends and marvel at the displays together.
Huge congratulations to Linda and all her helpers.  This is one show I'll remember forever.
I'm feeling very happy because I just found all the beautiful quilt designs very generously shared HERE at Cloud 9 Fabrics.
Huge thanks to everyone involved.
Have a wonderful day

Beautiful bookmarks

Last weekend when John and I attended Loving Indigo we both received the gift of a beautiful book mark, and I get to keep them both...lucky me.
Here's the story behind them

I feel so lucky to have discovered See Kate Sew.  It is packed to the brim with fabulous ideas, a multitude of brilliant free patterns and there are wonderful tutorials too.  I love the one to make these Fabric Toy Buckets, if you love them too, then please follow this LINK.

To day I'm off to a Stitching day with Gail Pan and Ramona Hermann.  Can't wait to see all my friends who will be there too.  We are very lucky to have so many wonderful designers in Melbourne who organise such fun filled days for us.
Hope you have some time for some stitching too.

The cutest present...

...ever! And it came from my dear friend Shez.

I also received these delightful and super sweet crochet eggs from dear Barb.
And the basket was made by lovely Annie

No wonder I feel like a lucky duck.

Today I'm off to Quilts in the Barn.  This year the featured quilt maker is Margaret Sampson-George Hooray! I am sure it will be wonderful.
Here's the details if you want to visit the show too.

Today's link is to this super practical, super pretty water bottle carrier.
You can find it HERE at Minted.  I'm sure you will love Minted so please pop over and say hello.

Sherrie Jewson

Last Thursday night we were lucky enough to have Sherrie Jewson as our guest speaker at a NOTYQ guild meeting.  I was in awe of her creativity and skills. Here are some of her pieces of textile art. They are being held by Pam, who organises all the fabulous speakers who visit us at NOYTQ.

And here is another lovely piece of whimsy from the Ballan festival last Sunday.  I couldn't resist the chicken on the hat of one of the fabulous Morris dancers.

How cute would these lovely fabric baskets look filled to the brim with shiny Easter eggies?  You can find the pattern in three sizes HERE very kindly shared by the folks at Birch.
Hope your day is full of fun

Yoko Saito

I am so grateful to Carol at Sewn and Quilted for introducing me to the wonderful talents of Yoko Saito.  I am now a huge fan, so you can imagine how excited I was to find a Yoko Saito quilt at Mill Rose Quilts when I visited on Sunday.

This wonderful quilt was a BOM in wonderful Quiltmania and, hooray, I have the patterns.  This is on my To Do list for later this year.

Another highlight of my day in Ballan was meeting sweet little piggy, Matilda, who was an entrant in the pet show.  She was adorable, I loved seeing her interact, so happily, with all the dogs in the show.

With Easter just around the corner, Bronwyn at wonderful Red Brolly has this gorgeous project to share,
You can find it HERE.  Enormous thanks to super talented, super generous Bronwyn.
Have a wonderful day
