Elyte had mentioned a trip to Patch and quilt to attend the book signing for Irene Blanck's wonderful book of patterns published by quiltmania. I hit the road with Thelma and Louise (aka Anne and Elyte) and we headed off to Gisborne. Now a visit to Gisborne would not be complete without a visit with the Gisborne girls so we met up for Coffee then headed off for some retail therapy and to see Mary and Irene.
Of course we had a fantastic and frivolous time and I even made a new friend. Wonderful isn't it?
would you like to see my goodies....
I have been inspired to add to my blues stash, some gorgeous fabrics and some wonderful inspiration in Irene's book. There are quite a few of the projects that are on my new to do list, now that I am such a fan of needleturn applique. I also booked in for a class with Irene for August-so exciting.
Can you tell that there was some laughing involved?
|the silly girls are ... |
thankyou girls for a wonderful, fun and inspiring day!! Sorry I didn't share
Now to share some quilting because some of you asked for it....
Nearly finished this edge border, My stitches are getting a bit neater. Another border to quilt and then it will be on with the binding. I can't wait but I know there will be a few more weeks to go.
Hope you all have a wonderful crafty weekend. I hope to make a start on my latest baltimore block.I am way behind well according to my agenda anyway.
