Just popping in to say Hi!

Still working away trying to finish Sallie Ann - I'm epsilon away from the end (in maths speak this means a number very close to zero) and it's so close my fingers are tingly. I can't wait to upload a photo when all the pieces are together. I am also working on the raffle quilt for Quilts in the Barn You can see a sneak peek over at SSS.  I hope all is well in your world too.

In the meantime, some photos from AQC that I haven't managed to show you yet.

I love the Nearly insane quilt, and this is a great version I think.  I'll get around to doing my own one day!

Doesn't this one just bring a smile to your face?  Glorious colour for sure.

This one has a real Turkish tile feel to me. Just beautiful.

No words necessary - just gorgeous.

I really love what Michelle Hill is doing with these William Morris designs.  Gotta do one, one day!

So much inspiration, how can anyone ever be bored!

Next time I'm here I hope it will be to show you Sallie Ann.  Can't wait!

Happy Mother's Day

for yesterday.  I hope you had a wonderful day.  I certainly did. A trip out to Mill Rose Cottage in Ballan, and afternoon tea at the cafe next door was just what the doctor ordered. It was great to catch up with Lizzie there too.

Another very lovely day a couple of weeks ago at CAG.  Here are some photos of that day.

Seems like everyone has the hexie bug right now.  This quilt was a really nice example.

Two versions of the Mary Brown quilt.  The one above is Dorothy's from Threads of Life. The one below is our Merri's.  Both beautiful, and very different.

 Here's our Kerry with a gorgeous quilt from Blackbird designs.  Kerry uses colours superbly. This one is so rich and warm. The photo doesn't do it justice.
Here's Sue-Anne's (from Buddy and Me) quilt, I think it is called Irish Circles.  It was lovely to meet Sue-Anne, we have exchangd emails before but this was our first face to face.

Not sure who the owner of this quilt is, but it was lovely, all William Morris prints.

We always have a fabulous day at CAG. Thanks Megan and Corliss for all your efforts.

Back soon,
