You may think that these prolong periods of silence from me means I am not creating. 
You would be mistaken.
While life is, different, and I am still adjusting, I am indeed sewing!

Last day of term had me visit Mill Rose Cottage for a tea set class with the ever amusing, insanely clever Jodie aka. Ric Rac. Thankfully I had Bec there to keep me safe ;)

It was a wonderful day! Truly just what I needed 

Sometime at the end of last term I had a house full of delightful visitors. 5 extra kids and one very crafty mum, The Fi's :) Always a blast having them stay. Sewed anything? Well yes, thanks for asking

Don't Look Now's Lilly Pilly quilt. Perfect for us with 6 birds hiding in the tree :) I purchased it as a kit about a year ago from Ballarat Patchwork.

I did try my best to do like the pattern says, however Fi convinced me to do what I know (easy or K.I.S.S) and just heat and bond the lot down. I am very grateful for her suggestion! Still a lot of work to go but VERY happy with is so far!

And lastly for today I did a Harlequin Stars class at Ballarat Patchwork!! Its a foundation pieced stunner. Emma at has made not one but 2 of these amazing quilts this year. I managed a block ;)

You need to pop into Ballarat Patchwork and check out the full quilt. 
It is a m a z i n g! 

There is more to show you but I need a lay down now. Hard work blogging when you haven't done it in ages teehee xox
