Wedding Quilt

Another niece got married in November so I made another quilt
The pattern is called Shattered 9-patch (click on any photo to see it larger)
If I make a quilt with straight lines, I like to quilt it with curves
Had fun with the border
Which curves around the corners
Another wonderful weekend in Napier celebrating with a lovely couple. Wishing them the best of everything for their life together.

Hello again

The time out from blogging was just what I needed. I appreciate so much all those people who left supportive comments about my month off.
First page inside my first Full Tilt Boogie journal
I've made progress on some projects, and pared down my to-do list. I'm also enjoying spending less time on the computer.
Sari Ribbon Slow Cloth completed May 2012.
Finally mounted on stretched canvas and hung on the wall.

Unfortunately one of the low-lights over this time has been a continuing increase in spam comments. When I reached 20 spam comments in the space of one day, I had to add the word verification step. I hope this doesn't put you off leaving comments for me in the future.
Another page begun in Full Tilt Boogie Journal.
Love how the glued serviette dries transparent so the old writing shows through.
I'll start sharing properly what I've been up to from next week, but in the meantime thought I'd share a couple of local outings I'm hoping to make in the spirit of Christmas shopping....first stop next Friday at the alt.shift.craft fair :
Then the Craft Country Fair is in Greytown Saturday 15th December - click on the link to see some of the gorgeous exhibitors from last year.
And if you're in Wellington you might like to do some arty shopping
I know I don't NEED to take anymore classes BUT I'm seriously considering getting a Ticket to Venice with Mary Ann Moss - start date 15 December
Class details HERE
Will let you know if I fall for it! Talk to you again soon.
