2016 Free Boms

Off on an adventure...

...to Carrum Downs to a Scquilter's Meeting.
I've been a member of Scquilters (an online quilting group) for well over 10 years.  I've been on retreat with about 100 of them but I've never been to a Victorian Meeting.  Lovely Ramona encourages me to attend everytime I see her at a Gail Pan/Ramona Hermann Stitching Day or run into her at a quilt show.
I woke up to a perfect Melbourne spring morning so I thought, a great day for a drive and off I went. It took about an hour but was a very easy drive on good roads.
I had a wonderful time. A lovely group of super friendly women made me feel so welcome so I'll definitely be back every month from now on.

Here are a few pics from Show and Tell.

They do have their own blog HERE.
I thought a bag made up from this fabulous free pattern would make a wonderful and useful gift.

If you follow this LINK to Zaaberry you will find a great tutorial.  This is a great blog to visit with a multitude of fabulous tutorials.  Enormous thanks to Zaaberry.
Hope you had time for some stitching today
PS I may not post until the evenings for the next few days as my adored and adorable little Henry is coming to stay.

  2. Spring, so funny because summer is just ending here. Good for you to get out there and join up with your group. I love the blocks and quilt you showed.
