Another fun day out with the girls and a little craft.


                   Quilts 1700-1945


We had a little outing last Tuesday to the Queensland Art Gallery to the the most wonderful quilt display.... if you get the chance to go and see them you won't be disappointed they are truly amazing.



               Sorry girls I know its a terrible photo but it was the only one I took of our trip. 

               We always manage to squeeze in  a treat and coffee ...... it was yummie too.



Laurel has just returned from an overseas trip and she gave us all a pressie...... a very cute thimble and tissues from Austria.... doily from the Netherlands......lovely.



"It's Time for Christmas" BOM from the Homespun magazine, we are doing this one together and hopefully it will be finished for Christmas...... well that's what we are hoping.


"Figgy Pudding" quilt, pattern by Moda ......

Not sure how to quilt this one yet ....


        I'm working on my long "to do list" at the moment ...... I will have more to show soon..... I hope.
