I can now show you....

...what the earlier mess in the corner of my workshop was about!!! As you all know QuiltyGals daughter got married a couple of weeks ago, well the mess was in the corner from making this little Double Wedding Ring Quilt for the happy couple!
I decided to embroider some words of "wisdom"?? on the back so if they wanted a change of scenery they just have to turn the quilt around.
Last week SW and I took a trip to one of our local shopping centres - haven't been there for a while - and since the last time a new shop (I am sure one of many) has popped up! An English, American and Australian Sweet Shop :))) We had a bit of a splurge indoors there..will have to curtail over the next few weeks now :((
This weeks craft finishings include the two following quilts. Both by ladies who are beginners.
The first is Teena's candlewick quilt - she wanted to use up some of her lace so did a really wide border and sashing which just finished the whole thing off lovely. Excellent work Teena :)
The second was Sandra - beautiful job Sandra!!!
One of our friends daughters celebrated her 18th just recently, so I thought she might need a quilt to go with the rest of her gifts.The other night SW and I were coming back home from a trip to the Adelaide Hills. The sunset was so magnificent I just had to stop and take a pic. Unfortunately the pic does not show how red the sun was while setting. Last night two very dear wonderful friends took SW and I out for dinner to a lovely restaurant in the hills - Windy Point. We had a fab meal (even have quite a lot of gluten free food there too!!) and when dessert came we just had to take a pic to share with you all what we had in front of us to eat - its a hard road but someone had to do it!!! LOL

And finally, for all you quilters out there that live in Adelaide or near (or those that would like to travel here) there is a quilt show happening. It is the "Australian Machine Quilting Festival" and is being held at Endeavour College, Mawson Lakes. Go to the link for more details :) Hope to see you all there.
