excuses excuses!!

I really have no excuse … time just flies… and I'm slack!

I've been very Busy.. doing workshops and going on retreats..starting lots of new projects and finishing none! ..going to the quilt show….I've also been renovating and painting pergolas, dog sitting…. the list goes on...

The last 2 days I enjoyed a great workshop with Wendy Williams who came to Maitland to teach at Southern Cross Needlework.
I loved working in wool felt.. and started a camel cushion … in memory of my NT experience.

a group effort

I just loved all the yummy bright colours…my next mission is to make the animal quilt for a baby boy due in 9 weeks…..better get moving on that one!!

I've also been to Nundle in the last few weeks to have a Christmas in July workshop with the delightful Bonnie Sullivan.
Working with wool again we made a chatelaine and started a scarf.
