September 9th 2014

Spring has sprung here in South East Queensland and shows in some of the pretty offerings in our show and share this month.

Before I post pictures, many thanks must go to Helen, without whom I would not have been able to continue blogging our get togethers due to the fact that the blog log in details disappeared along with my last pc’s memory – I know, no excuse for where my memory went but THANK GOODNESS Helen’s hasn’t failed her, so THANK YOU HELEN!

Gail had this HUGE cone of DMC 115 and gave us all the opportunity to take as much as we wanted so we did just that – thanks Gail !13Sept2014 (3)

13Sept2014 (8) Helen worked on putting her big hexagons together – it’s going to be a fabulous quilt

13Sept2014 (2)  and showed us her bag that was a recent finish to.

13Sept2014 (6) Margaret is getting ready for a market stall and has been sewing up these cute bags

13Sept2014 (4) This is Helen & Gail holding up Helen’s quilt from her hand dyed stash – that Spring theme pops up again see lol

13Sept2014 (5) I recently discovered the Missouri Quilt Co tutorials and was inspired to make these disappearing hourglass blocks. Two more brown tone blocks are needed to complete this lap quilt before I think about boarders etc.

….and this time with a raffle quilt Gail has made. The back (on right) is pretty like the front and we were all inspired to buy tickets, which we did.

So that friends is our show and share for September.

There will NOT be an OCTOBER GET TOGETHER. The Craft & Quilt Show will be on at the Brisbane Convention Centre on the weekend we are scheduled to meet up so we are bound to bump into some familiar faces there instead LOL!


We return in November which will be our LAST get together for 2014 and this will be on the THIRD Saturday -  NOVEMBER 15th. Bring a plate of food to share and a secret santa swap gift to the value of $10 if you wish to participate. Hand made or thoughtfully purchased, it’s ok. 

Any questions?  Email me at

Until then, happy stitching


August 9 2014

A few of the ‘regulars’ had returned from holidays in various parts of the world with tales of our travels to share at this get together and it was lovely to catch up with good friends once again – I for one had missed you ladies :)

This blog post is a little late, with my old laptop dying of a terrible virus that the guru’s couldn’t even fix. So here I am in Windows 8.1 working at speeds that scare me LOL!

On to our August get together……drum roll please…..

9Aug2014 (1) Margaret can’t make these bags quick enough before someone wants to buy them. This is her latest collection, all already promised to new homes. Aren’t they gorgeous!

9Aug2014 (5) There’s always some of the latest magazines on offer to flick through for those of us needing inspiration

9Aug2014 (2) 9Aug2014 (4)

Kayt completed a couple of ‘healing heart’ blocks ready for posting and was making progress on hand quilting this lovely quilt for a friend

9Aug2014 (3) Julie was knitting a scarf – this wool was so soft and lovely

9Aug2014 Ann brought in this lovely quilt, a project from a quilting cruise mentioned in an earlier blog. Lovely work as usual from our Ann.

Me? What was I working on?  Ok, I was the under achiever, not a single stitch sewn, knitted or even unpicked today! I was very happy to read those mags on the table and be inspired & entertained by the other lovely ladies :)

Until Next Time – Happy Stitching
