good friday to me is always a bit like boxing day, a time just to slow down and reflect and just do what you feel like (there are some productive chores happening in the background) ! i also have the television on with the royal childrens hospital appeal going on here today in melbourne, australia and millions of dollars are always raised so that they can carry out the wonderful work that they do treating children from all over australia and other parts of the world. it creates a great community spirit, well done to everyone.
it was so good to see beverley arriving for sewing last saturday with an umbrella, our first real rain for so long, send alot more down please !
jan was very happy to see her completed cushion makeup of her parrots she embroidered, a design from teacher Gail
and keeping the bird theme going, finished her next piece of embroidery which we all loved
and the other jan had almost finished this, i love it, little by little i'm showing you its progress
i was preparing lunch and these avacados were just so perfect !
i have uploaded some new patterns into my etsy store (you'll find it on my side bar) two friends that i have known for years and who have always done such beautiful quilts are now producing patterns and so i'm offering them to you ! this is one of Sandra Boyle's
here is another of Sandra's patterns, there are quite a few more in the store so take a look at what you may like
and Christine Vlasic also has four new patterns, she also has made some wonderful quilts over the years, we both worked in well known needlework shops in melbourne years ago and so know lots of people in common who were customers
and this one too
my favourite quilts a scrappy quilts and both Christine and Sandra have patterns to make them, they both teach in melbourne and so if you can take a class with them i would recommend that you do
there is also another pattern from 'mrs sew and so' in her series, take a look at it also
good clear instructions and how to are in the patterns
so daylight saving is about to end, the cooler weather has arrived and it's only going to get cooler, so a good time to start a new project maybe ! as well as the new patterns there are those from Margaret Sampson George and Trish Harper
happy easter to all, keep safe and enjoy a bit of chocolate on sunday
this gorgeous bunny couple were given to me by the lovely Jenny who bought them at the oxfam shop
