Friday Night With Friends & Off To The Show!

 I got an early start for FNWF just after lunch 
so managed to get quite a bit done.
I worked on my secret project that is due next week! 
Silly me thought it was due at the end of October. 
So I may just be a little late.

Thanks to Chez for hosting FNWF. 
You can see what the others got up to here.
Well, I'm off to NOTYQ's Quilt Exhibition. After lots of planning and spending all day Thursday setting up, everything is ready for the show. I'll be there today and tomorrow, so come and say hello if you can make it. 
I'm looking forward to having a proper look at all the quilts and catching up with people. I've also got my spending money all ready for the trader's hall!

No OPAM To Report!

 For the first time ever, I have no OPAM to report (insert sad face)! I have had a couple of finishes but they are secret so I can't show you.
Tomorrow is Friday Night With Friends hosted by the lovely Cheryll. I'll be working on a secret swap project that is due next Thursday! Silly me thought I had till the end of the month to get it done. I've been so busy with the organisation of the NOTYQ Quilt Show I've only just made a start on the project. Hopefully my partner will understand 
if I'm a couple of days late.

Well, I'm off to set up the quilt show with all our 
wonderful helpers. Even Austin and Nelson are coming 
along to help set up the stands.

NOTYQ Quilt Exhibition

There's only a week to go for the NOTYQ Quilt Exhibition! 
There'll be a large display of quilts, along with a Trader's Hall and Refreshments. We will also have a Community Quilts stall with many wonderful handmade goodies. 
Money raised from this stall goes toward buying 
fabric and wadding to make the quilts.
This is our beautiful raffle quilt. 
The photo really doesn't do it justice. 
Here's a close-up of one of the blocks.
And another one.

Proceeds from the raffle will go to Banksia Palliative Care.
If you can make it, we'd love to see you there. Come and say hello. If you can't find me, just ask one of the NOTYQ ladies and they'll hunt me out. I'll be there all weekend.

Molly's Prize Has Arrived!

Hi Everyone, it's Molly here.
My prize for winning the viewer's choice for Dog on Quilt 
at Lily Pad Quilting's Pets On Quilts has arrived.
 I'm having a closer look here!
My prize is this layer cake of "Best In Show". It has lots of dogs on it, as well as paw prints and bones. It came all the way from New York from Sharon of Vrooman's Quilts.
It's now in Mum's sewing room. Dad bought me a big chew bone (which is now buried in the backyard!) for being a winner and giving Mum the fabric.
I wonder what quilt she will make with it!
 Thank you for my lovely prize, Sharon.
Thank you also to Jacque for organising the fun show. 
I hope we join in again next year.

Woofy hugs,

What A Mess!

 I wanted to start a new project yesterday but I could 
hardly get in the door of my sewing room!
 I've been busy with the preparations for our NOTYQ Quilt Exhibition coming up. Everything just seemed 
to be getting dumped in here.
So after a quick tidy up I was able to prepare my project. You'll have to wait a couple of weeks 
before I can show it to you.

Go here to find out more about the Exhibition.
