…didn’t mean to be missing from blogging!
Just been busy with the everyday things…and some stitching!
…Woolworth's roses because the quilt group spent Sunday here…and the house needed some flowers!
I have been stitching a few things…slowly making progress!
Working on Vignette quilt…so much embroidery!
I chose to make mine in bright colours…but as I
stitch some blocks together, I think how nice this
would have been in 1930’s prints or all in a pale blue/green
…anyway my quilt will be bright!!
…a new set of threads arrived from Ollie and May today
so I can keep on stitching!

This is my March finish…
…machine quilted on the sweet sixteen!
Still need lots of practice…but I now have a usable quilt!
My DH has been curled up under it at any opportunity…
I machine stitched the binding…after watching a tutorial at
Missouri Star Quilt Co on you tube…lots of great tips there!
One thing I wished I did different now I’m finished…
is quilt it in the colour thread I used on the binding!
Anyway it is all a learning experience…and this quilt
will get used till it is worn out !!
If it ever stops raining I will take it outside and get a better picture….

…it’s a beautiful sunny Easter Sunday!
We had easter to ourselves…
one son in nth Queensland one son in the west…phone calls from both
…so today we went for a drive in the countryside…to the Channon market
lunch was this
…and then a round trip drive!
…they are called the Nimbin Rocks!
they were formed from a volcano…
the early settlers called them the thimble, cathedral and needle.
…and this is what I bought home!
And on the other side it says…
