A great day out

Hi everyone,

Thursday was a great day. Anne, Lis and I visited the 2012 Quilt and Craft Show here in Adelaide. Although it is primarily quilts there are always some interesting things to find. It is amazing how quickly the colour and style of quilting fabrics change. This year there were lots of lovely taupes and faded reds with small delicate prints which were not there last year. I did bring home 2 pieces of fabric with an australian theme for lining on some ongoing projects. The quilt show was amazing and they allowed photographs but with the agreement that they are not shown on the web (sorry). Australia has some very talented quilters thats for sure.

I bought home some Redwork patterns to try. Anne has stitched many of these pretty designs and enjoyed them so I thought I'd give them a try. All are christmas themed and are fun pieces. Because there are very few stitches used and the pattern is pre-printed onto the fabric they will be a nice in between project to stitch at night.

There has been a little more progress on Atlantis but not enough for a photo. I will be working on it today so I will share a photo soon.

Australia has possums, Washington DC
has squirrels, isn't it cute?

Happy stitching, bye for now, Carol


  1. I think that that is a squirrel with attitude.

  2. He certainly did have attitude. There are no shrinking violets in the squirrel world.
