I had a lovely visit last week, from one of my bloggy friends, Sandrine. She gave me a beautiful handmade soap that has the most wonderful blackberry fragrance...mmm yummy. (thankyou very much, Sandrine)
I went to the Brisbane Craft & Quilt fair recently, with some of the gals from the quiltgroup. I didn't buy much really, but I had a great day out looking at everything.
One of the fabrics I bought. It is Japanese and printed on both sides. There is the cherries/braid/strawberries on one side, then the blue check/polkadots on the other.
Hubby gave me an Angus & Robertson bookstore voucher he had been given, lucky me. Whilst looking in the bookstore, I found this lovely book, Material Obsession two, full of inspirational quilts.
I have started working on another quilt - 'Flowers for Thee' by the Chook Shed pattern company. I found this (old) pattern in a magazine, at my quiltgroup's library. It has a lot of tartan fabrics in it. I will be able to use up a stash of tartan pieces that I have had for a very long time. The quilt is made up of a four-patch and an appliqued block that has a simple basket and heart on it. I think it will make a nice picnic quilt.
