Where did that week go?

This past 2 weeks have flown by without time to draw breath! work and then some teaching machine quilting classes have taken all my time and energy, with my creative time being limited to class prep and recovery.
So here I am with no Farmers Wife blocks this week, and no hope in the next 2 weeks, and I was doing so well....
Stitching time for myself has been sadly limited.
I am trying really hard to finish some pieces for the Queensland Quilters yearly exhibition, 2 weeks away now and my time is even more limited.
I am going to Melbourne as guest artist with Bernina on the Q20 demonstrating ruler work, come along and see what it is all about if you are in Melbourne. 
Then I am really looking forward to a week with my mum, sitting and hand sewing and walking the beach- even in winter 'our' beach in Tasmania is marvellous!

This is one of my exhibition pieces, I am up to the binding, it is an improv piece of some of my husbands old shirts, they are so soft, it will be a lovely quilt to snuggle under- perhaps for his teardrop caravan that he is starting to build....

 Our son has been living in Colombia teaching English for the past 16 months, our daughter recently visited with him for 2 weeks, they had a marvellous time together. I asked for a Mola souvenir. They chose these 2 pieces, one is a bag and the other a fantastic panel. They know that I like red, and I am impressed that they chose pieces that I love! 
Being surrounded by textiles their whole lives seems to have paid off.


  1. Love the molas Jane. I have a couple of small pieces also.
