Seeing yo-yo's with Natalie Lymer

Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches has released three great new patterns which you can see here. One of them is a lovely bag called Ginger & Spice and uses yo-yo's or suffolk puffs. Natalie has put together a really helpful tutorial on how to use the new Clover Yo-Yo Makers. She also has two free stitchery patterns available on her website which are very sweet.

Sunday 10 May 2007

Not too many of us today, only 5 - Pat, Kerry, Cath, Joan and myself (Peg). But we did have a very enjoyable day. Dale was going to join us but she was sick in bed, but back to her old self today (we did miss you Day-Day). As you will see by the photos we all achieved heaps and when I went home I stippled and completed the "Tigers Football Quilt" (Ros did post a photo earlier) for my nephew Travis. Quilting again in a fortnight hope to see you there.

Check this out!!!!


Pat has just finished this lovely bag - it is called a saddle bag, when you open it up it becomes this huge bag full of pockets and oh so much space, definitely what all quilters need. Pat did this in a day and she started on her second one yesterday at our Sunday quilting day.

Cath - and this one is for her.



Cath started this quilt last weekend at Carols, and as you can see it is coming along very nicely, this will be a spectacular quilt! (more photos as Cath progresses)

Kerry and her quilt for Toby


Kerry is also on a mission for a little friend of hers his name is Toby and he is three years old. Kerry is making an applique quilt for this little fellow just because...........

Carols Retreat






Last weekend we had another fantastic retreat, this time it was at Carols farm. To Carol and Gussy we would like to say a huge thankyou for once again letting us remove ourselves from the day to day presures of life and retire for a weekend to your home away from home. Dale, Peg, Kath, June, Gai, Kerry, Pat and Cath headed out to Carols with our projects and of course one or two treats for a weekend of fun, laughter, funny stories, one or two refreshments and the best company ever.

Norm and her projects...



It was so lovely to catch up with Norm and her daughter Deb, - Norm had bought along with her a couple of her completed projects, they were just lovely one was a project she had done at Nundle a couple of years ago and the second one which is the red and cream - is a little something she has been putting together over the past couple of months.

Kath Completed this in one day....



Kath is here with a quilt kit she had purchased from "Hatched and Patched" whipped this one up in one day at Ridgecrest, no stopping this girl now.

At bit more of memory lane............
