Enrolments are now OPEN for the Gunning Patchwork Weekend

If you have already followed the link once, details have now been updated.

I'm hoping my husband won't be doing dreaded stock take that weekend and I will get a chance to attend both days and come out feeling a little more creative. Even better if he doesn't have to work that weekend and I can send him and the children to the coast for the weekend ...

There are a few workshops available including:

Big Bold Print Quilt with Robyn Cawdron
English Paper Piecing with Peta Luck (Saturday Only)
Kaleidescope / Spider's Web with Judy Farrugia
My Iris with Judy Wood
Cherish Butterflies with Janet Heffernan (Saturday Only)
Spirals Begin with Janet Heffernan (Sunday Only)


The FAT Quarter

Apart from all the wonderful above things that have been organised, there are a number of competitions to participate in as well ...


Please note I am not a coordinator of the weekend, I just wish to publicise it on my blog as I live in Gunning!


If you wish to make contact with the organisers (Peta, Maree and Margaret) for more information, contact: info(at)

Walking Through My House

I have to blog more. I know!

Today I thought I would take you for a walk through the floors of my house, mainly because they are photos that I took that I will not have to crop!

 How could one not be inspired?

Added: Because I was going out to dinner and had minimal time to post, but still wanted to post, and in response to some of the comments!

The rectangular one above is in the shower I use, so I stand there staring at it as I wash my hair and think ... "oh, that would make a great quilt" and the other night I was standing there thinking "you could probably knit a blanket like that" and I just had to share! I think both my grandparents had similiar tiled bathrooms.

The one with the multicoloured squares is a rug my parents had in their house over floorboards (now polished) when I was growing up and my siblings and I loved hopping across it from coloured square to coloured square and when we moved into the house that we are renting at the moment, my Dad said why didn't we put the rug down on the rather ugly green feltex in the front room.

As Dad had "one day" been planning on using it in a cottage he wanted to build and has not and is not likely to ever build one, I think he is rather glad to see it again and for it to be used.

And I love the flowers in the hall way! If I get a chance, I'll take some more photos of that one for you!

God Speed The Plough

Okay, no craft but I thought I would share a few images of what it means to live in the country ...

This is a tea towel my Mum turned into wall decoration, a gift from an Irish friend.

And the best thing about living in the country is the lovely generous neighbours with gifts of free vegies!
