What are we up to!!

Well the countdown to Christmas is coming fast now.
Lou has nearly finished her Glacier Star quilt, and I have made 5 Jelly Roll quilts for gifts. They are kind of a cheat quilt, quick and easy, but at least 5 family members will have a quilt to snuggle on the couch with!
Now just need to get them all quilted and bound, then will post a photo.
We post a few photo's of quilts and random things in our life on Instagram, it's so quick and easy to use. You can click on the link to the right and follow us if you wish! Lou also put this fancy scrolling gallery at the top of our Blog, she's very clever.
We also both have Pintrest. You can also click the links to the right to see our boards and the things we love.

This is one of my antique quilts, hand pieced and hand quilted.
In between the green feathers are creamy ones if you look close. I often wonder what colour did that use to be, has it faded, and was it made as a special gift or for pride of place on the bed? Love the history that we see with quilts.When we get a nice day I'll photograph the whole quilt and post a picture. 
Love Melbourne weather, it was 22 degrees this morning at 5.30 am now it's 15 degrees and pouring! You never know what the day will bring.
Have a great day wherever you are in the world!!

Lisa & Lou

  2. Tell me about it (Melbourne weather) I left home in a t-shirt then found myself in a freezing rainstorm, luckily I always have an umbrella in my handbag. I am a total Pinterest addict and love following both of you.
