Handmade Things

I have made a resolution to Blog more often this year but with school holidays in full swing haven't done any sewing for weeks!! So here is a picture of the Christmas Pressie I made for our Quilting group"Fat Quarters" last year. It is a quilted glasses case - picked by Lorna (I hope she likes it!!)

My first appearance in a magazine - the January issue of Homespun. And a profile too. I was thrilled to be contacted by Catherine Sanchez, the editor of Homespun who said that she had seen my clocks and would like to feature one in her magazine. These things take a while so I designed a Dream time clock and sent it off last July and at last the magazine is in the shops! Hope you all like it.

Made with Love...

Here is a picture of some puffy hearts I made for my quilting group "Fat Quarters" We had a visit from the Sunnybank Quilters yesterday and did a Christmas in July lunch for them. We made christmas decorations as a gift for each member and I made these (loved them so much I had to keep a few!) And I didn't even get to go to the lunch as both my daughters are down with the dreaded flu bug. It sounds like the the lunch was a great success though.

Down Under Quilts Calendar Competition

I entered a quilt into the Down Under 2010 Calendar competition and was so excited when I received a call the other day to say that my quilt entitled "The Tree of Life" would be included in next years calendar. It will also go on tour to exhibitions here and overseas including to Japan. I wish I could go too!! It was also at the Stitches and Craft show at Darling Harbour in Sydney last weekend.

Another Champion

Here is my baby girl Alice - she's the one in the middle. She also won her cross country race - taking after her big sister Jade! Only in Grade one but already running fast.
And look what else she can do - who says only boys can float concrete - here she is helpiong her dad build the wood shed.
