I've been flat out designing and stitching for the new B.O.M. this week - with all those gorgeous Robyn Pandolph fabrics I showed you before. As fast as I can draw- my sister-in-law (S.J.V.H.), seen with Mother in previous posts, and I have been madly stitching. If you remember - the quilt was supposed to be finished by the end of February. THAT"S TODAY!
Here's the pile of finished stitcheries I've been photographing for promotions.
See the little Pincushion design? I got the idea from the Baboushka Shop in Melbourne-
You remember- I was there for Australian Quilt Market.
Can you guess where I was last Saturday!! It's been a BUSY week!
Yep! You guessed right! The Newcastle Show. Flew up and back in the one day. This is me flying Pelican Airways to Newcastle!! I actually had to sit like that as the plane was so tiny. I could see everything going on on the ground as we flew so low. (You're quite right- I did forget to take the camera- hence the hasty drawing).
Hi to Candy and Mick-the new owners of A Quilters Hive. Who invited me to come to the Show to meet everyone.
Hi also to Debbie who was the previous owner, and to her sister - and to Judith ( one of our Blog friends) and Hazel and the Girls from Port Macquarie and Country areas- and the Newcastle girls who all came to say "Hi".
It was such a fun day. I took the Gingham Girls Quilt and the new Animal Crackers Quilt ...
I finally met the lovely Sonia from Giggle Buttons who will be bringing out a stack of new button designs shortly. Something to look forward to!
A NEW VISITOR!
My Family were staying last week- and left their cat for me to look after-
Here he is, Smudge- the Norwegian Forest Cat. He's very loving- loves attention. Notice the long hairs in his ears!
Which reminds me- Tomorrow is THE BIG DAY!
Have your needles and Chocolate ready!!
For the second Design in the Great Catalicious Quilt Stitch-In.
