After a cold night (spent at a BBQ outside) I was at Picture Patchwork today taking a class . The girl made chenille cushions and did a fantastic job of them. They all looked great and will be even better once thay have been washed to fluff them up a bit.
I also did some quilting on the frame this weekend. This one is for Selina. A very graphic piece of fabric. Quilted with a Lorien Quilting pantograph called Dazzle.
This week it was farewell to my good friend Joanne, we combined her farewell with Elaine's birthday tea. Lots of hugs all round.

My new frame and machine Meet Miss Rosie
a busy couple of weeks. I've made a couple of chenille cushions as a class sample.The class was a good day of sewing.
Then some quilting on the frame. This one for Jo. A tesellated pinwheel. Just love the colours.
And a quilt for Diane that she has made with her grandaughter. Very feminine and soft.
At the weekend I went to the Easter gathering at Bridgewater. Elaine and Susan took the shop. A great day out.
And today I have finished a quilt for Kaye. Its for a boy, her grandson I think.
I really should put my glasses on when I am on the computer. I was deleting drafts on my blog and just deleted my last post!!! P...P So Here it goes again. I have been busy this last month. Camping as Deloraine (with a visit from an inquisative swan,) for a girls sewing weekend. It was great sewing in the fresh air until the breeze got up a little too much. I did manage to finish constructing my New York Beauty block, now only need to be set out for colour placement and assembled...Only..
There was also a workshop with my local group from the book One Block Wonders. Still a work in progress.
Trips to Smithton and Marrawah
and some quilting on the frame.
This is a quilt that I made in October last year. Started at retreat at Camp Clayton. I found the pattern on Moda Bakeshop. Finished quilting it today. Its been a sewing weekend for me. We (the Thursday night that I belong to.) did a class yesterday from the One Block Wonders book. It was an enjoyable day good sewing with great company. Today I had lunch out at Anvers with my family. Good food and good company also.
As you can see, I have also learned to frame in photoshop, but have to change colour and size.??
