sarah's first exhibition


Sarah has had her first exhibition of her photographs - not a solo one, that is yet to come!
In Cohuna they have opened a community art gallery and Sarah was asked to submit some of her photos. She got great encouraging comments and I'm really proud of her.

almost finished


Well I had hoped to have this quilt finished by the end of this week - I almost made it, just have to hand sew the binding down and do a label...not a bad effort I reckon

P.S. to this post as at 3.00 pm on 31/10/09 the quilt is finished!!! Bound and labelled too

This weeks "flaunt" - showing off what I've achieved this week!
Managed to get the third and final section of my patchwork groups block of the month done. Hopefully next week I will have a quilt to show you - or am I being overly optimistic?

four birthdays and a gymkhana

What a weekend!!!
Four birthdays - Aimee was 22 on Friday, Sarah was 18 on Friday, Megan was 15 on Saturday and I was 47 on Saturday. Yes four birthdays in two days. And here are my three beautiful girls.

And of course on Sunday there was more. Our Cohuna Pony Club Gymkhana was on - heaps of work for parents etc but Megan and Ruby had a fabulous day - 14 events for 14 ribbons, and Ruby was soooo well behaved.

some proper finishes!!!


Hooray!!!
Finished two quilty things this week!!!
Firstly the Christmas Wish quilt I showed you the other day - quilted, labelled and bound now.
Secondly I made a table runner from three blocks I had - it was a swap on a list I was on - there was supposed to be six of us in a group that swapped blocks - it was over 2 years ago and I still have only received three blocks back, and I found these the other day when I cleaned up a bit and decided to make a table runner from them - someone will probably score this as a christmas present.
Feels great to finally finish something though - its been a while
