Sherwood Stitches

Last month we had a demonstration at Sherwood Stitchers & were shown how to make bowls by wrapping strips of fabric around clothes line or rope or wadding and then being stitched together.  I've bought the book "It's a Wrap" by Susan Breier but have yet to try it. Some of the girls at Sherwood Stitchers have already made coasters, place mats and a bowl.

This time next week, I'll be in Sydney at the National Quilt Study Conference . I am co-presenting a paper on the Miegunyah Quilt Project.  Miegunyah is an historical house here n Brisbane and home to the Queensland Womens' Historical Association TheAssociation has a number of antique quilts that I have had the honour of helping to document.  Looking forward to visiting the Sydney Quilt Show too - a week away..........with two good friends.  Hope it's not too cold for us Queenslanders.
