We are staying with our niece & nephew in Sydney - he got a couple of drones for his 50th birthday & the boys had a great time checking out the flights of the drones. He got two!

A coupled of cute Christmas stockings have gone to Claire & her brother, Oscar.
This is Grand-daughter, Benny's Christmas stocking. Made last year & each year, I'll add a little charm - the white snowflake was last year & this year was a little green heart (can't see it in the photo!)

This year - Sherwood Stitchers annual bus trip ended at Rosewood. Another member, Olive & her friend, Margaret, prepared a great feast and we visited two Patchwork shops - one in Raceview, Ipswich & the other in Rosewood. It was a lovely day.

I know you all think your grandchildren are clever but - isn't Benny artistic??
Hopefully there will be more of these masterpieces over the years to come. In case your're wondering - it's a rainbow!
They'll be on the fridge for quite a while - she's soooooo clever!

Last month's meeting of 2QAQ - Qld Quilters' Art Quilt group. I demonstrated a collage technique - without using fusible web & placing torn fabric, then hand stitching the pieces.
It's really relaxing & everyone seemed to enjoy it.
One of the girls started a table runner - I believe it's already finished.
Our next meeting is next Saturday, 31st October at BVAC Hub, 140 Weller Road, Wellers Hill. We start at 12.30pm. Textile artist, Rebecca Staunton-Coffey will be sharing her knowledge.http://aliquilts.com.au/fabrics/ She & Ali George make the most devine fabric.

A Julie Haddrick www.haddrickonfabric.com.au/ workshop through Qld Quilters www.qldquilters.com last month was really great. Design, techniques & advise were all part of Julie's great workshop. Above is the is the printing - a result of the stamp I made.
This was a great exercise and some of them might just end up being a Modern Quilt or an Art Quilt. I was really pleased that I drew the designs freehand.
