Creative coasters

I’m amazed at the fantastic coasters some lovely girls have made whilst they have been at Sewjourn…….no ‘just follow the pattern’ for these ladies!  Mal has suggested mounting them on a board to display them….maybe?  Thanks so much everyone, I hope you had fun making them.

Birthday treats

Daughter No. 2 is turning 8 tomorrow – where does the time go???  And these are the treats that are going to school for her class……..

Happy Birthday sweet Lucy!

Sunday stash on a Wednesday

My excuse is that I was away on Sunday with no internet access!  So here goes……..

Bought this gorgeous panel on our day out.  It’s Recess from American Jane.  Nice easy ‘cheats’ way to do a lap quilt for the lounge area at Sewjourn……even had thoughts of handquilting it (but those that know me – Dale and Suzie) will laugh at that!

My own retreat

Just had a wonderful long weekend here

We did a bit of gardening (but much much more needed) – a few spots are looking good though……..

Went on a family bike ride to Romsey (8kms but a great bike track all the way) and everyone did really well, even in the rain on the way home!   The fit one in our family didn’t have much sympathy for my sore backside given that he’d riden from Melbourne to Lancefield the day before (and back today). The girls and I also went for walks every morning which is one of their favorite things when we are in Lancefield.

Mal couldn’t resist doing a few more ‘handyman jobs’ – and we have a sliding fly screen door at the back to show for it…………

I also got some much overdue ‘crafty time’ – luxury having the whole studio to myself!


I would have finished this simple quilt top (fabrics purchased this day) had I not left one of the fabrics at home!  Got some more yoyos done for the curtain in one of the bedrooms – only about half way along though…………


………and made some ‘Welcome’ cards for the next few lots of guests to stay.
