i was going to be good and do a post on the 1st of this month so the calendar would be brought up to date before the middle of the month, or the end, as been the case lately !
its been busy around here, all sorts of plans being made and things being done ready for another Marg Sampson George workshop, this time in sydney, have not been there for years, always seem to be heading south to my favourite hobart ! surprises for those taking part, take time to get done and dusted !
some paperpiecing being done in preparation for the msg workshop
can't really show you anymore, gotta keep some surprises !
if you are on the popular instagram app, then you can follow some of the show and tell there, my page is 'lizatbroderie', so have a look and join in. there is also a #camelotquilt, where people who are stitching the camelot quilt are posting pictures of the various circles. any readers here who are also on instagram and who have made 'camelot' or are in the process, you may like to show us your circles, hope you join in !
Trish Harper has been creating this very pretty quilt combining both her lovely embroidery and hand piecing liberty squares. not finished yet, but last year i did show you the embroidered wreath that forms the centre.
this will not become a pattern, but if you already do classes with Trish, then how lucky are you to be able to make this very pretty quilt top. for those of you who live in melbourne, Trish teaches at 'Amitie' in gardenvale.
surviving all the terrible hot days we have had here in melbourne this summer, these beauties were grown at point leo, a beach here in victoria where i spent lots of my teenage years, my late brother was a member of the surf club there, happy memories of those days ! thanks jenny !
the magazine table is sorted, for those of you that live in the uk, you can see that your 'country living' magazine is a real favourite with me and lots of my friends !
march also brings moomba and the moomba march, and a long weekend to celebrate, the meaning of moomba is 'lets get together and have fun', i didn't go out and do that and haven't any pictures, but thousands do and i always loved a carnival when small, so i can understand why all those families gather annually to enjoy moomba !
