... A view form our room in Sydney...
Back home from Sydney and what a wonderful time we had.
Arrived on the Saturday morning, had lunch then a massage.....ummmmm. that's the
Went to the "Cirque Du Soleil" while we were up there....what a fantastic show, if you ever get the chance to go it is well worth it.
Caught up with some dear friends of ours, Paul, John and sister in law Denise. Had dinner on the Saturday night, at John and Denise's fabulous renovated 3 story warehouse apartment 10 minutes form the heart of Sydney.
We lost touch with Paul and his family about 10 years back when he moved to Sydney. He googled my name and found me again....what wonderful things computers are.
If any of you have a story about finding old friends or relatives on the computer I would love to hear from you.
I will be giving away 1 of my "Memory" patterns as a prize.
The finishing date for this giveaway will be Thursday the 12th of September.
(mention my giveaway on your blog to get an extra entry).

Can't wait to hear from you.

Gold Coast

I am just back from the Gold Coast, spent a few days up there with a friend of mine and her son while our men were on a car rally up through the middle of Australia.
The weather was beautiful, warm in the day, cold at night, just how I like it.
I did get a little sewing done while I was up there for the coming workshop in Yarragon. I will have to give you a peek of my projects over the next few stay
One day we went out whale watching....I felt as if the whales were playing hide and seek that day.Here is a picture of the back of 2 of the whale's that we saw.

We also went up to the new "Q Deck" while we were there...Boy!!!!! what an amazing view. It was well worth the visit.

What I have been up to.....

Hi everyone.
I have been flat out since my last post.
I did a Christmas in July fabric painting workshop at Pentland Patchwork, the local patchwork shop. We all had a wonderful day.
Thanks to a friend of mine Bernadette for the extra help and set of hands.

Another class I held was for a group of ladies from Bendigo. They rent a house in Dalesford and have for the last 2 years, they invited me up there for the day to show them how to do a little fabric painting and water colour pencils, what fun we had.
They would have completed 4 projects each, so they do have a little stitching to do over the next few months.
I still have a few workshops coming up in the next few months.
September in Yarragon.
October in Warrnambool and Warracknabeal.
November the AQM.
December back at Warrnambool.
If you would like to know more about these workshops or would be interested in coming please just contact me.
