Summer School

Home today packing for my next three days in Sydney. A new month so I need to do a lot of printing for class. A note for correspondence school your patterns will be posted on Monday. I ran out of time to do it today, apparently my sons told me there was nothing to eat in the house so they could starve! There is a full fruit bowl but that's not food...
Summer School will run from Wednesday the 18th of January to the 22nd of January.
A little later than before but the Mountains has a christian conference at the beginning of January and that runs to the 14th so we had to be well clear of it as all the accommodation is taken.
Hope this helps with bookings and flights.
Lets look at more quilts.
These photos are from Cottage Quilt Works located on the beautiful Northern Beaches, for those of you overseas this is where they film Home And Away. The shop and class room are lovely and the girls really had some wonderful show and tell.
This is Sue Brooke's Maria Hanks. I think originally this design came out in 2005 but Sue started last year so she has done well to finish so quickly. Such beautiful applique and her colours sing on her background.

Wendy finished her star quilt.

Heather Waugh's Yorkshire Dales Quilt.

Terri Hennessy with her Sampler.

Our new girl last year Maree Mackinnon with the centre of Blue Bell.

Here are Gina and Heather working very hard in class.

 My Sampler.
Please let me know if there is anything you would like to see or hear about until next time,
