Neerim Retreat

I spent a recent "longish" weekend at Neerim Country Cottages, with good friends, good food and good weather! Have a look at the view from my table! Spent most of the time gazing out the window! Even a really, really bad head cold didn't stop me from enjoying myself. I just hope I didn't pass the germs onto anyone!
The girls from Morrisons Quilting (and Ernie Dingle) were looking forward to the weekend for eleven months! And we were not disappointed!
A lovely setting.....
.....a sunny deck.....
.....and seriously good food (thanks to Tiramisue).
"Is it playlunch time yet?" asks Ernie.
Eyes out on organ stops when he saw the cheesecake.....

.....and he was fascinated with the cheeseboard set - the teddy-sized knives with their little magnetic stand.
Time to get down to some work - which fabric to choose.
I'm ready! Can I start cutting now?
P.S. Ernie will give details of the work we attempted soon!

More of Garden Party

Here's another little bit of "Garden Party". Be patient, it's nearly ready!
P.S. Not much work will be done this weekend - I'm off to a quilting retreat with a group of friends. I'm so looking forward to it!!!!!

Two New Designs

Photos of a couple of new quilts - above is "The Sewing Lesson" (or part of it), and below is "Garden Party (once again, only part of it!).
Today I am doing a sterling job of avoiding the obvious - trying to get these completed by November!
Concentration is needed because it's confusing doing two quilts and sets of instructions at the same time.
So I'm blogging instead. Of course!
And thinking about the coming retreat next weekend, with some of the quilters from my local group. Can't wait!
P.S. Patterns available soon - keep an eye on my website or faceache, whoops, facebook.
P.P.S. Back to the borders.........

Garden Party

Here's something for you to contemplate! It's part of "Garden Party", a new design that I have on the go.
Think birds, parasols, a teapot, a teacup, champagne, cupcakes, tablecloths, bunting.........
P.S. It will be released around the same time as "The Sewing Lesson".
