No photos today, but what a wonderful day I had here in Brisbane yesterday.
Met up with my dear friend & co scquilter Julie from Ipswich, and what a day we had. Talk about "talking non stop"
We seem to have so much in common, and we hardly had time to take a breath. After yummy cake and coffee, Julie took me to The Quilters Store where I added to my stash in a gentle way :-)) by this time it was 3pm and we were so dying of dehydration, we had to rush back to the shopping mall for a coffee. Before we knew it, it was 4pm and I missed my bus back to my DIL hairdressing salon, where she was going to give me a few low lights in my hair.
Julie very kindly drove me there. ( well actually she followed the bus )
After another half hour of talking, Julie thought she had better get home, and sort out something for dinner.
Isn't it amazing, when you meet some-one you just hit it off, as though it was meant to be. This is only the second time Julie and I have met up in person, but I feel I have known her forever.
Thanks again Julie for all the goss and laughter and of course the lovely gifts!!
Will post a photo when I get home!
Thanks for dropping by

Another Block Finished
Today is my DH’s 70th birthday, and after having Apple Strudel (made by yours truly ) for morning tea, he is off outside to ride/train one of the horses.
We have so many field mushrooms at the moment, and DH keeps bringing them into me to deal with. ( You know what its like) I have been making lots of mushroom soup and freezing it for DH, so when I’m away its an easy meal for him.
At last I have remembered to take a photo of the 2nd block I have made in the Bridal War Quilt series. This one I made using the wash away paper behind my applique. I took this photo before I washed it, and have now done so, and it looks fine.
Broke a few # 60 machine needles though, trying to get through all the fabric on the points of the leaves. The current block I am making, I am starching the edges over freezer paper, then ironing the edges down before removing the freezer paper to stitch down. I think I like this way better. No sticky glue as with the wash away.
Hopefully I won’t take so long to finish block #3.
