Sydney Best of Show winner

A little late I know, but here is the photo of what I believe to be the most amazing quilt I have seen in a long time ! Look at all the ribbons it won !!

Rings & Roses by Janet Treen
I just sat in front of it one day after the show had finished and could not take my eyes of it !. The more I looked, the more I saw. I just Love it !. Double Wedding Ring with appliquéd rose borders, hand quilted and trapuntoed.  You can go Here   to read more about it and the prizes it won, other than Best of Show.

Also I finished the back of the jumper  I was knitting last week, in the car on the way home back to Adelaide on Tuesday. Last few cast off stitches were done after the sun had gone down and not quite dark. I started the front yesterday, had a bit of unpicking to do as I had forgotten how to put the thread forward and knit the next stitch !!. But worked it out eventually !!. Should also say I was home from the shop sick. Terry and I both picked up germies while in Sydney. Terry came down with the flu while driving home on Tuesday and was home sick Wednesday. I thought I had missed it ... but No :( . 

Hope you have a wonderful day where ever you are :)
Happy Quilting

A new design to be released in Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair Darling Harbour

I have another new design to be released in Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair this coming week.
This one was quick, I had the idea and it was made very quickly with the help of my new sample maker ! lol a big thank you to Terry, he put the top together, while I was doing some stitching on another project. So I thought you might enjoy a sneak peek !

It is not quilted yet as we ran out of time. But this gives me time to think about how I would like to see it quilted.

We closed the shop this afternoon and hoped in the car and started on our tip to Sydney. After 4 hours of driving, we are have stopping at Ouyen in Victoria. Tomorrow bright and early we will set off for the 10 hour stretch of driving to Sydney.
So while in the car I have decided to knit.  I did  7 rows in the car tonight before it got to dark. I used to do a lot of knitting years ago, I had forgotten how soothing it can be.
So here is a photo of what I got done today.

This is the jumper I am knitting
 I wonder how long it will be after knitting in the car tomorrow ?. If I am not to tired tomorrow night I will do a post of my progress.

Hope you have a wonderful day where ever you are :)

Almost time to leave for the Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair !!

Hi Everyone,
                    Time has flown past since we arrived home from the Perth show Tuesday last week. We have been busy cutting kits & catching up on Bom's. We have even found time to design a new quilt using a Layer cake :). Pattern still to be written and we leave for Sydney on Sunday afternoon after the shop closes.
I enjoy going to Sydney as each year Terry and I get to catch up with my bestie Jo and her hubby. Nice to have dinner and chat about our year and what the kids have been doing ( Jo has 5 beautiful children). We also try to catch up with family, while we are there as well. Hoping to catch up with my sister and family too.
 So if you are heading to the Darling Harbour show don't forget to pop by our stand K27 and say hi and see my designs on the stand in real life ! :). 

Hope you are having a wonderful day where ever you are.
