Friends,shopping and a deadline!!

For those who know us crazy girls, you know we love nothing better to be burning the midnight hour for a deadline! But..... we got our quilts for Quilters Companion Magazine finished with a whole week to spare, and we were very excited. Clare recieved them safely, so now we will wait till they appear in print. We will be sure to post this day!

At our last class the girls were all very busy working on a range of different projects.
Maureen is working on our pattern, Tessellate, in great colours...

Robyn is working on our Cheddar Peels (from our Autumn in the Valley pattern)...

Divna is working on a Viv Robinson quilt which she enlarged the blocks for...

Karen is working on a "purple work" stitchery which looks great....

And Glenda is finishing off this quilt for her daughters wedding gift. She got all the guests to sign the backing. What a great way to remember your special day.....

We also went to Jeffs shed for a nice bit of shopping at Threadbear and to look at the fantastic quilts on display this year. A few of our friends won prizes this year. Congratulations to Sandra, Christine, Liz, Linda and also Leanne. This is the quilt Leanne quilted for a customer which is just beautiful.
Well done girls.

Here is Liz's quilt which she appliqued and quilted herself.

Also 2 other friends, Margaret and Jennifer were there with their new Applique Group.

This is a new group and the first meeting will be on Saturday October 5th.

We have nearly finished our Spring Fling quilts for our "quilt-in" day for Lilly Patches also on Saturday 5th October. Will post some pics soon of these.
Next weekend we are off to Daylesford for 3 days of R&R, and sewing of course!
Love weekends away with likeminded friends.

Have a great weekend!
Lisa & Lou
