Autumn in Blackheath.

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all well sorry for the delay but I have been changing my technology and it has not been easy.
I lost a few emails so please forgive me if you had no answer and send me another.
The poor girls in class have had to listen to all the winging so I know they are glad its over, the apple shop has also had its work cut out but now I should be able to blog from class everything seems so fast now.
Its Autumn in Blackheath the colours are lovely.

I have had a birthday my grandson was one in march and my son turned thirty so lots of family celebrations.
The lovely girls in the Concord group bought me beautiful flowers which just happened to go with fabrics I bought: Mill Book Series by Moda quilting friends always know your colours.

Congratulations to Karen Ross her Sampler won viewers choice at The Springwood show.
These photos were taken a while ago but show and tell from Blueberries.
Miss Austen's Garden.

Plain and Fancy.
Choosing fabrics at Glenbrook of course you need a tin to put your sewing in.

The concord ladies.
Julie used one of the centres from Reproduction Fabrics for her Miss Austen.
May used her collection of dutch chintz for her plain and fancy.

Cottage Quilt Works.
We really have had lovely panels to work with this year.

Elizabeth's lovely French Mosaic.

I have two girls who have finished the Marriage Quilt so far all stunning.

Plain and Fancy has been a very popular pattern.

Hope you had a nice time catching up with the show and tell. The shops are bursting with new fabrics so many lovely choices and now I can blog on the spot you will get to see more of them.
On Tuesday I visited the Sydney Aquarium and loved the colours of the coral so here's a peek.
