First a big apologies to all my customers who have place an order on the website. I have moved to a new version of WordPress and new look, and we (my IT person and me) didn’t to tick some of the boxes and cross the other ones…. anyway it is all running now and ready for you.
On a personal note my daughter has come back from a month in Switzerland ( so nice to have her again) and my son is up to his ears in getting ready for final exams..
As for quilting I am currently working on few (too many) projects at once, one of them with bees (that’s the only tit bit of information you’ll get!) which I cannot put down…. so much fun.
I had never mentioned it ( still amazed) but Di Ford-Hall has appointed me to look after her class at Sewn and Quilted and the shop will be running a fundraising event for the Leukaemia Research Foundation, jump online to see how you can help
It has been a month already since I came back from Nantes and the Quiltmania expo with my head full of new ideas. The fingers can hardly keep up. I am about to finish a project, have started a couple of new ones ( as you do) and enrol for Spanish classes. I should be able to make myself understood by next year. It is wonderful to go back to studies especially for fun!
We have put the bees in their winter spot, hive in the sun and one less box to keep warm. They are still harvesting but like us at a slower pace.
I will be at the Victorian Quilter showcase, working behind the counter of Sewn and Quilted and this year I shall be going to the Brisbane’s show in October, I am looking forward to new horizons.
I’ll look forward to meet some of you to either of the shows.
Keep warm and keep stitching
Un mois déjà depuis que je suis revenue de Nantes et de l’expo de Quiltmania, avec la tête pleine de nouveaux projets. Les doigts peuvent à peine suivre la cadence. Je suis entrain de finir un projet, commencé deux nouveaux ( comme il se doit) et me suit inscrite pour des cours d’espagnol. Je devrais arriver à me faire comprendre d’ici l’année prochaine. C’est génial de retourner faire des études pour le plaisir.
Nous avons mis au nos abeilles dans leurs quartiers d’hiver, la ruche au soleil et une boîte en moins a chauffer. Elles continuent à travailler mais comme nous à une cadence plus lente.
Je serais à l’expo de Vic Quilters, derrière le comptoir de Sewn and Quilter et cette année je vais même aller à Brisbane pour leur show en octobre, je me réjouis de découvrir de nouveaux horizons.

One of my favorite pattern is my “Albertine” and it would look gorgeous using modern fabrics... so for the next few weeks I’ll be posting close-up pics of my progress. You can sew along with me using similar colours. AND the pattern is available as a download in La Boutique on my website.
First step the hearts... Happy Valentines Day !

After last night strong winds I found a “surprise” in the veggie patch. One of the top of the redwood tree ( it had 3 after being struck by lightning 20 yrs ago) had fallen down ( from a great height😶) missing the beehives by not much 😅. It’s about 4m long and weigh a tonne. It did prune seriously my apricot tree and shattered the compost bin as well as one of the rose bush. Just relieved that the bees still have a roof... might buy a Tastlotto ticket 🍀 or am I pushing my luck ?
Something new is coming up .....register for my newsletter ( in the bio) and you will be amongst the first one to see it 🤫#quilts#libertyfabrics #garden#flowers#embroidery#gippsbearycottage #patchnquilt#sewnandquilted...
Not a dull moment here. 10 days ago I lost my favorite chook to the neighbour’s dogs ( she flew over the wrong fence😢). So we made sure it won’t happen again. 10 days of digging, building, stappling and re-arranging.... just need to add few decorations like greens😊And now back to quilting 🥳🥳
