Back to work.

Hi everyone,
My first week back at work and we are starting whimsical wool it's always fantastic to start a new project.
Hope you all have your baskets packed with all your lovely wool pieces.
I will be teaching this quilt at Summer School on Friday so don't be upset if you live too far away to come along to class.
Yesterday after class the girls and I popped down to Penrith to have a look at the quilters gathering held at Panthers.
Lovely to wander through a venue filled with quilting stalls only.
Here is Rhonda with her pop up shop.

Congratulations to Rhonda her beautiful Baltimore quilt has been accepted to the Houston show! 
Lorraine from Patchwork plus also had a lovely little shop.

You always seem to meet up with friends when you go along to these events so I had a lovely time.
These photos are a bit late coming but here is the show and tell from my group who do a yearly workshop on Janet Edmonds farm. 
Annette's friend hand quilted her Durham quilt.
Beautiful hand quilting!

Chris has her Miss Austen ready to quilt.

And Archy has quilted hers.

Here are Carols quilts. I love all the hand quilting her quilts are so soft and just beautiful.

Thank you all for a fantastic few days it was lovely to catch up with Janet who runs the best workshops on her farm. Lynwyn and John who looked after us all with wonderful cooking spoilt us all you arrive home and the first question you get is what's for tea?
Today is very windy and cold in the mountains so I am going to have a look at the craft market have some breakfast then come home and sew.
I suppose I will have to decide what's for tea!
See most of you all soon,happy stitching and have a lovely Sunday.
