Paper Piecing fun

Now for some stitching news….
My little class of english paper piecers at Finders Keepers are doing really well and coming up with some fantastic results.

Our first class we made hexagon cushions

Our 2nd class we fussy cut!

Then we used diamonds to make tumbling blocks


Pam has progressed from her L's and now has an EPP addiction!!

Last week we started making a bag using the quilt as you go technique.

 While some of the group are making hexagon bags.
I'll fill you in later with their results!

This is an old picture but I want to show you Chelsea's Lolly Pop Tree quilt -(Kim Mclean)
It looks fantastic in repro fabrics  - hasn't she done a great job!

I thought the girls at Finders Keepers were mad (or desperate) when they asked me if I would teach a class. But we have a lovely group of ladies and are having a lot of fun!
I'll keep you posted on our classes progress.

till next time

A Proud day

Instead of a block-a-month … I think I'm doing a blog-a-month!!
Its been One month since my last post…whoops!

I've been doing my usual running all over the place… and I'm never home..
Friday I was in Sydney for DD2's Graduation as a Juris Doctor of Law, from Sydney Uni… YAY!!

 Unfortunately Mr Floss was out of the country but we managed to celebrated in style with a big night out in the city ... my 3 girls and childhood bestie, Louise, and 2 of the boyfriends.  
'Vivid' was on… A spectacular display of lights on city buildings and famous icons. 
The city was buzzing…we had such a fabulous night! 

It was a great way to celebrate the end of years of study and the start of a brilliant career! 

If you can get to the city…(Sydney, that is!) ….Vivid is on every night until 9th June

till next time
