It is a beautiful, clear sunny morning in Palmerston North -the birds are singing in the trees - I just love the sound of the tuis -I am surrounded by swatches of Kaffe Fasset and Keri Beyer Fabric - Fabulous!

It has been a sewing frenzy at "Wednesdays are for Quilting" the last couple of weeks as gifts are being made for Christmas - Dot is making an apron and we just love the co - ordinating glasses and fabric! Yesterday she was making Oven mits and she was wearing blue glasses to match the fabric she was using - we are wondering what she will be wearing next week!
Molly the Matriach! and our role model!! Molly has just turned 80 and has just bought ther fabric to make another "This is a Great Bag"

Sonja went to Sheryl Anicich's class and made this quilt. She has used lots of sparly threads and fabric to make the flowers which are appliqued to the quilt after the background has been quilted.

" At last - I've got something finished!!" Helen's words when we hung this on the wall after Jacqui's Landscape class . The class was in November and Jacqui held a finishing day recently at The Cloth Shop.

A close up of Helen's rocks and sea foam - the rocks are made using xpanda paint and sand and the foam is made with stitching metallic thread on washaway fabric. The background was a piece of calico which has been painted with several sheades of blue paint and dashes a expanda paint.
