Some Lovely Quilts To Share

On Friday, Mel and I headed off to the Eastern Palliative Care's "Quilts Loved and Used" exhibition. 
Once again there was a lovely display of quilts.
This one was my favourite.
No, I hadn't finished my Double Wedding Ring.
This one was just lovely.
 We finished off the morning with a cuppa and some very yummy scones with jam and cream. Mel will have some more photos to share. The battery ran out on my camera!

Muck Up Day and Friday Night Sew In

The Year 12's had a wonderful time at their Muck Up Day. The theme for dressing up was movie characters. Here is Dumb and Dumber! That's James in the orange. I'm hoping someone got a group photo of everyone dressed up.
Thanks to Wendy for hosting us at last night's 
Friday Night Sew In.
I put together this table topper using chicken fabrics. 
It's for someone who has a country kitchen. I was able to make this with scraps from my Chook House quilt. Hopefully I'll get a chance to quilt it tomorrow.
I seem to be hooked on this little design by Gail. 
I finished stitching a fourth one and started on a fifth! 
I think this will be all of these ones for now.

Well, I'm off to NOTY's Guild meeting. 
Have a lovely weekend everyone.

The End Of An Era!

 Today is Mitchell's last day of school.
 Prep - 2002
Year 12 - 2014

When we took him for that first day back in 2001, Year 12 seemed like such a long way off! They are having Muck Up Day today. Hopefully, Austin will send me some photos of what they get up to. They are all dressing up and the Year 12's are giving a concert to the Years 9, 10 and 11.

Congratulations on reaching this milestone, Mitchell.
We are very proud of you.

A Finish Or Two

I've made another table topper with a Dresden Plate. 
All the fabric came out of my stash which was great. 
The colours are more like the first two photos. 
How cute is this Red Barn Pin! I was the lucky September Let's Book It winner hosted by Sharon of Vrooman's Quilts. The little charm is an Eight Pointed Star. 
Thank you so much Sharon.
I also whipped up four more lavender sachets 
to add to the present drawer.
