Colour Palette

Well I did manage to get over to my wool shop and buy the extra colours I needed for my blanket.

Here they are:
The colours look fabulous together. Very bright and cheerful. I made some more granny squares last night

These little guys are quite addictive.

While I was in town yesterday I found a new wool/craft shop. It's a big open space upstairs at Australia on Collins - they run classes and drop in groups and have their own brand of Australian wool which is quite beautiful. They also have some Patons, Cleckheaton, Noro, Rowan. Well worth a visit. It's called Morris and Sons.

On an unrelated matter, I'm throwing in this picture of a quilt block

I am lucky enough to belong to the most fabulous quilt group. You'll be hearing much more about these girls. Di suggested we make a quilt to give to one of the bush fire victims. We have each made 2 of these blocks. My first has already gone so I thought I'd snap this one before it goes too.

Until next time.....
