Mathilda's Market

We're going coastal!
Yes, I thought a little sea change would be nice, so I'm going to be selling my quilty wares at the Mathilda's Market in Geelong on the 2nd November.

Here's a sneak peak of a couple of works in progress...
(My favourite local talented ladies at Maze & Vale and Umbrella Prints feature heavily as usual!)

A little bit of news (and a play dough kebab)

As alluded to previously, here's a little sharing of some family news...

Trying to stay positive...

On a day where I'm feeling fairly depressed about our nation's new Government and what lies ahead, I'm just trying to stay positive.

After all, I have fresh runuculus beside my bed, we had safe and calm elections (and I have lived in countries where this is not the case), my community of friends, family and neighbours is loving, compassionate, inclusive and we can indeed make a positive difference in our own lives and the lives of those around us.
And there are exciting times ahead in our own little family!! (more on this shortly...)

Fun, quirky and... bright

I received a commission a little while back from a lovely lady, asking if I could make a king-single sized quilt for her soon-to-be two year old daughter, Kate. It was to go on her new big girl bed in her new room. The request was for bold colours, not too matchy matchy, fun and quirky and, well... bright.

It's the largest quilt I've made to date, and there were a few challenges along the way, but I had fun with it and learnt a few new tricks and am so happy with how it's turned out. And so are its new owners... I dropped it off in person and took a few snaps of it in its gorgeous new room (though the first few below are on my own bed). Happy birthday Kate!

(As usual, there's a few fabrics from some of my favourite local fabric makers including Umbrella Prints and Maze & Vale)
