Toowoomba Quilters Club Raffle Quilt

 Toowoomba's raffle quilt made by the members and very nicely quilted by Lyn Crump.  Close up of some of the wonderful quilting. A real piece of art.

 Stunning quilt that will be raffled off at this years Quilt show. Well done to all the girls of Toowoomba quilters who took part in the making of this gawjus  quilt.  I for one will be purchasing many tickets when the time comes.  Toowoomba's quilt show is held the same time as the Carnival of flowers every year, so keep this time free and mark it down in your diaries.  This is the time when Toowoomba shines brightly.  So if you are passing through keep in mind accommodation will be hard to find. So book ahead and not be disappointed.

Big Cuppa Morning

 On Tuesday the 22nd May the Toowoomba Quilters Club held their Big Cuppa Morning Tea Day for the Cancer appeal.  This year Yellow was the color of choice. Was a great success with  everyone joining in on the festivities. With a Speaker and lots of raffle prizes were on the menu.......... as well as lot of very yummy yellow cakes and sweets for all. This is a couple of pics of the hat parade. Members were also asked to bring along quilts they have with yellow in them.....quite a display.

Work continues....

Here is my part of the new shed just waiting for the electrician to connect lights, fan.......then its shelving, tables, sewing machine and everything else.  I am lucky it is fully insulated.

Do you like the wall l painted myself.  Took me two whole days to complete..... very sore and tired not like ladders at any time.  The room is full of nature light thanks to the reflective material and light colour paint.

Thinking about painting the rocking chair white next.....add cushion..... sit and relax.

Think l will keep my day job...... Domestic Goddess.

Need name for my retreat.  Quilters Haven, Quick Hideaway, Quilters 1/4 (Quarters.)???

 Had a productive night, went via spotlight through the week and came across some project sheets which l thought l could give ago.

Firstly l made up these cute little lunch bags for my niece and girlfriends daughters.  How cute and easy are they??

Then l had ago at making up these fabric beaded necklaces for gifts again for my niece and myself. Only made four of these before running out of beads in the correct sizes.  Cannot show pics as the maybe watching my blog to see what l have been up too.

My quilting group are having their big cuppa morning tea on Tuesday and the colour for this year is yellow so l made this Frangipani hair pin to go with my new yellow fabric beaded necklace.

Granny Smith Apple

 Hubby should know better then to let me out with the credit card.  Saw this love green apple and felt a little hungry at the time, had to have it.

Goes extremely well in the house sits next to the new large screen TV.  Adding a bit of colour to the room, slowly.  Matches in very nicely with the green/brown cushions which will go well on the brown sofa.  Which is my next purchase for the home theater room.  Along with the picture for the wall of a Dandelion.  Have taken a number of photo's out in the garden trying to find the better one to have mounted onto  canvas.  Wish me luck.
