and some computer problems, i can bring you more of our birthday weekend
remember we had stars
and vases and stems and birds all taking shape in different ways
there are some new stars
the beginning of some new quilts by the birthday girl, no, she has not finished the one started on her special weekend, but has a rotating big basket of projects, and this is the newest
shopping on the way to the airport to deliver jean for her flight home, marlene found this brown linen, i know the photo makes it look grey, but it is a lovely lightweight brown linen
irene had added some birds above her basket of hexagons
and nothing to do with the quilt making, except they would be lovely to wear while relaxing and doing some stitching are these new peter alexander jammies, fun aren't they !
and this is my central basket for my quilt to go with all my hexagons that i have been playing with, things being auditioned really, but i'm happy with this i think or similar and i have started sewing some down, really took this photo so i would remember the placement
we also had a show and tell on the sunday of our weekend, so will share with some of the work that we have done over the years or more recently. out there in the suburbs so many of us are busy with enjoying the gentle arts of all kinds
marilyn's lovely wagga, done some years ago in a class with robyn melia, it is so well done and always such a pleasure to see
sorry that some of the pictures are not so clear, it was amount of light and the quick change of all the pieces, so much to see
lavina's lovely octagon quilt just finished recently
