Well what can I say but the quilts were spectacular and so inspiring! Elyte, Annie and I inspected each quilt, checking out the most amazing applique on a variety of styles of quilts. we oohed and aahed.....

|Does this one look familiar? Gorgeous version of swan lake.|
after looking at all these amazing quilts we had worked up an apetite (not just for fabric and patterns) and headed off to lunch.
Next stop was Threadbare!
This shop is Amazing. I have always wanted to buy one of Corliss' patterns and I think after the appliques I have done I am ready to hit the big time.
Now you will know that I am not usually an impetuous person when it comes to big projects but...
This pattern called my name and I had to answer the call..
some little pieces of fabric might also have been calling too.....
I don't know how long I can resist starting this project.......only one thing holding me back. What fabrics to use?
Might take a day or two to nut this one out.
some happy mail arrived this week... the parcel for the easter mug rug swap.... opening day 18th of March
Just want to share a pic of these lovely flowers that my no 3 son sent to my work for me to give me a bit of a pick me up.
Don't you love it when they show you they can be thoughtful?
that's it for me. I'm off to enjoy a lovely cup of green tea and read of my new 'I'm in love with' pattern, just to make sure I haven't bitten off more than I can chew. Not that it would be the first time!
Public holiday tomorrow, winner, winner, chicken dinner!
