December 2018

December is always a quieter time for Max & Louise. We take advantage of this time to unwind, spend time with family & friends, and of course prepare for Christmas. For Lisa this includes loads of long arm quilting to get all her customer quilts done for Christmas gifts.

This year was extra special for Lou and her family as they were off to the USA to spend the holidays with Lou''s cousins.

Her packing included three quilts packed for special gifts. And of course Lisa quilted all of these on her long arm as well as a HEAP of other quilts for people just in time for Christmas!  
Hint: if you want a quilt quilted for Christmas, get sewing and contact Lisa to book your spot.
Lou made Lufra House for her cousin Marcella using Nicholson Street shirtings & fabrics from her stash.
  A Kangaroo quilt for a sweet little nephew 
(Sorry, this isn't our design and I can't find the magazine it was in to tell you whose design it is).
A circles in squares quilt for her cousin Carol in Japanese fabrics.

In California Lou & her family did some of the famous tourist sites including:
Disney Land & Disney California Adventure Park
Warner Brothers where we had lunch at  Lorelai & Rory's house (Gilmore Girls)
Family selfie at the Holllywood Walk of Fame 
Fireworks over Hogwarts Castle (we are Harry Potter fans!)
   Laguna Beach
Snow at the Grand Canyon (in Arizona)
 And of course we found quilt shops!

 Back in Australia happy mail came with our Yarra Valley fabrics by Andover.... 

To say we were excited was an understatement! 

See you soon for January's catch up!
Lou & Lisa
