Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou

Many Thanks to everyone who traveled out to the Scenic Rim on the weekend and visited Aliquilts Open Studio. It was perfect weather and look at these beautiful pieces our visitors have created for the community cloth. Ali, Chris and I are so thrilled:)

in between...

In between working on a couple of background changes to my blog which I'll launch later this month, renovating our kitchen and most importantly completing my pieces for open studio (only 10 sleeps) I've been enjoying timeout moments with a little bit of knitting making dishcloths. Using knitting needles inherited from my Gran and 100% cotton knitting yarn I now have a growing collection of cloths - they work a treat in the new kitchen. I've also been re-reading "The Golden Hands" collection. A series of books released in the seventies full of projects and helpful hints for needlecraft, knitters & dressmakers. I do enjoy re-reading these books, while fashion and colors may change technique is constant - an enjoyable timeout and many fond memories.

Give me a museum and I'll fill it

two cute purses & a first

The premiere issue of 'Love Sewing Australia' is out. So exciting to have a project included in the premiere issue. A purse project using 5 inch purse frames. Very exciting and another first - it's my first project publication:))
'Love Sewing Australia' is available at most newsagents and Coles Supermarkets.
