Last weekend, the wee girl and I made the trip out to beautiful Ballarat to see Annie at the quilt show and catch up with Jodie, Rachel and Kathryn there.
We spent a good part of the day being led on several wild-goose-GPS-chases around the city before finding the old Mining Exchange building and the fabulous quilts it held. I was so excited about eventually getting there (!!) and seeing the girls, the only time I thought to take the camera out was while waiting for the girls to get their cups of tea and join us at the table.
On Wednesday, there was my trunk show at The Blanket Box in Geelong - a first-outing for these newest Shell Purses.
There was a fair splash of Saffron Craig fabric about the place this week, too. I'm preparing for a workshop for the International Federation for Home Economics Congress, which is to be held in Melbourne this year. I wanted to infuse an Aussie flavour into the class, so chose Saffron's cheerful prints for the job.
I'd started this patchwork bit for a workshop last year (at the Technology Teachers Association conference) and finally put it all together on Friday.a bag (the piecing above appears on the back of the bag).
Oh look... there's a bag-making class....
Customised Bag in a Day workshop. We focused on the details that make a super-special handmade bag even more special.
Patternmaking gals from Thursday's class... perhaps your toiles could be used as scrap tub covers after all.... the current Yoplait models could do with an update!).
So... it was a bit of a busy one and I didn't have the brainspace left to blog at the end of each day.
But I still love you.....
