Oh what a day. We taught a workshop today for our two new patterns
With Mrs Martin's Quilt Shop.
Karen (aka Mrs Martin) spent all week preparing the hall and baking (yes, in 44 degree heat)!
It looked amazing.
We will apologise for the green tinge in the photos. The light was good in the hall, but it casts a green glow in photos... Odd....
We had a great bunch of ladies, 63 in all. Including some wonderful friends, ladies we have taught before and some new ladies.
One lovely lady told us of a quilting tour/ trip to the USA she had last year. She said that because they all came with a common interest that they all got along instantly. This group was the same. It seemed as though everyone had a wonderful time and we had a blast.
Here are some photos of what everyone was working on:
Thanks so much for a great day everyone who came and to Karen for organising a very successful Summer School!
We look forward to seeing some PhD's and completed quilts soon.

PS. We are in issue 99 of Quiltmania which is being delivered now. We shall give you a sneak pic in the next couple of days.
Lucky me..... Christmas Eve is my birthday and this year my eldest daughter, Jordon (19) made this sign to hang over my sewing room door.
I LOVE IT!
Red is my favourite colour and she has roughed it up enough to look just the right amount of rustic.
My daughter, Tristan, 15, bought chalk paint so I can create a blackboard wall in the dining room & kitchen area
My hubby worked outside for my birthday and Christmas presents. This was our entrance before (that's my baby, Max, running towards me as I take the photo)
Not the best pics, sorry, but can you see the weeds and dirt?? There is no edge around this central garden bed and when it was wet, this area was slippery and yuk!
And after three days hard work it looks like this:
You can imagine his pleased I am! On top of this we had the best couple of days with close friends and family. Today, I finished work early and I'm.... You guessed it.....sewing! What a great way to spend my time.
