as i sit and look out the window here it seems everything is looking pink this spring, the roses are like lit candles blowing in the wind and all the blossoms i can see in neighbouring gardens are all shades of pink !
these are the old roses in the garden and so pretty, i am liking a bit of pink at the moment
last weekend i visited, with a friend, a quilt exhibition organised by eastern palliative care in nunawading, i believe it is only the second one they have organised, it was an excellent show, lots of beautiful work and lots of friendly people. some of my favourites are here !
pretty scrappy stars by sandra boyle
loved the colours of this one
more stars by sandra dorse
the colours and the fussy cutting of this really appealed to me, done by adrienne armstrong
and this version of di ford's morrel quilt, done by christine vlasic, was very inspiring ! and i have the pattern, one day ! look out for this show about this time next year, it was well worth a visit and for a good cause, i'm all for supporting those in need of comforting.
i have finished interviewing my fabrics for my circles surrounded by hexagons and have come up with this final decision and will surround them with this bicolour spot background i think, still in the pink theme ! this will be the centre of a quilt admired and loved from the collection made and owned by margaret sampson george and who so generously shared the pattern with me and some friends
still a long way to go for me, the process is always slow, lots of other preparation done, hexagons are ready !
loved these shadows on the blinds the other morning
and the beautiful vision and the perfume from anna's roses have been lovely to live with
it is a grey and dull melbourne day today, but the roses are lifting the spirits and it is warm inside and a good day to be just doing ! what will i do next, lots of sorting to be done here also !
