Now into single digits, 5 days until holidays.....

Another lovely week in Brisbane, started with a little rain and ended with beautiful spring sunshine my very favourite time of the year.


"Oriental"  ATC's

I completed and posted off these ATC's I was really pleased with the finished cards,  I used a Chinese symbol that means Laugh.  I thought about using the symbol for Dragon fly but it was too long to fit into the appliquéd circle....Laugh fitted perfectly!!!


This came to our place last night.....Leah's wedding dress! I had to put my thinking cap on to work out where to store it until Feb 2010. 


Block 8 Breast of Friends BOM by Amanda Brooke is now complete

I bought some more of the striped fabric for possible use as a border fabric, and another that may or may not end up in the finished quilt.  The finish will probably ruminate for as long as it takes me to complete the remaining blocks, just 3 more to go.

I'm off on a club bus trip tomorrow to visit a Quilt show and a couple of quilt shops on the return journey. I am looking forward to catching up with my friends and enjoying a lovely outing with like minded women.

Thanks for visiting...
