hope you are having a great week where ever you may be. Quiet in my house with NOS away at the beach and NOD very busy with dancing, singing and drama activities. Oh to be that young with that much energy!

Not much of note to show you today. I still feel a little sad that I didn't have a new Kaffe to show you so I pulled out a very simple top I made last year just to give you a colour hit. I love these old grey greens he does.

Should turn it into a quilt one day!

Beginnings of my third MM block - it uses only two fabrics - I love these colours.

And the first part of the GTASB month 6 is done - 7 of these. Only one more block to do - called Day Lilly.

I will be up at Threadbears in Castlemaine on Sunday arvo with some of the gang. Di will be launching her new pattern Ann's Legacy. It's a beautiful quilt - I'm sure she will have the quilt there too. If you're in the area it would be great to say hi. How will I know you? Don't know - I look like my photo only older. We'll be the noisy group - trust me we're noisy.

If you haven't been over to Barbara Brackman's blog yet - it is certainly worth a visit. So much interesting info there about antique textiles and repro quilts. And you might see a picture that you recognise.

Have a great week,

Deb xoxo

Might be there, we're tossing whether or not to go to Maldon or Castlemaine for the day! Julie from Julie's Provincial Patch had a great idea. A lot of us are going over to Daylesford for the Makers Market on Saturday, she suggested that anyone that was happy to be recognised as a fellow blogger, wear a pink yo-yo/suffolk puff as a little pin or brooch! I've just made mine, so easy to pin it on or take it off to remain incognito ;o).
Good idea for quilt shows too I think. So, if you see someone wearing a pink spotty yo-yo, waving madly - that'll be me!!

oh love the start of your new block!
Hope you take pictures of that quilt on sunday I would love to see it. I love seeing fabric choices so details :)
Yes I will need to order the pattern, hopefully right after Christmas, to add to my every growing list of must make quilts!

I love the simple quilts too and the colours in that Kaffe one are lovely. You are going well with the MM. Have a great time on Sunday.

Oh, you must, must, MUST finish that gorgeous quilt top at the top of your blog. When your blog popped open I literally sat up straighter in my chair. What a beauty!
