Tamborine Quilt Camp

Tomorrow I am heading up to Tamborine Mountain for a 4 day quilt camp with the Beaudesert Quilters group. This is my third camp with them and I just love it. They are a great group of ladies and the weekend is always filled with fun and friendship. The theme for this camp is Red Hatters Retreat. I have been busy the last few days preparing things to take. As a challenge for the camp, I had to make a place mat using the camp's theme. I have stitched some Bronwyn Hayes ladies for mine and used red/purple (for over 50) and pink/mauve (for under 50) fabrics to accentuate the theme colours. I must say it is very, very bright. Will post photos when I return home. Well must go and finish packing.

Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately but have had a few on-going family issues which have had to take precedence over other things. Hopefully things will settle down soon.

Progressing slowly

I haven't been doing too much lately. Time is passing much too quickly. Here is another block in the Love is series. Still got a couple more to go to catch up but will get there eventually.
My Gardeners Journal blocks are going slowly but have managed to get the stitchery finished on these two blocks. I was extremely pleased when I finished the house as it took a very long time to complete. Have the next 2 blocks ready to stitch although they will not take as long I hope.

Here is my big boy's rug. Scott was a bit upset that he missed out when his two boys got there's so I made this version for him. Instead of making it square, I purchased 2 metres each of the blue and grey polar fleece to make his rug a bit longer.
It is certainly breezy here today after a couple of days rain. A nice day to catch up with some stitching I think. Hope you are having a good day too. Till next time.......
