Quilting, quilting, quilting!

Mum and I have just finished the last day of our 4 day quilting retreat in Mittagong, NSW - Quilting in the Highlands organised by Berrima Patchwork.

We have had the most awesome time! We have learnt from some of Australia and the USA's best quilting teachers and made it at least half way through our projects.

Berrima Patchwork have announced their 2013 retreat details which will run from Sat 27th July to Tuesday 30th July. They have confirmed that their USA teachers for next year will be Sandra Leichner, Barbara Olson and Deb Karasik. Australian teachers to be confirmed soon. If you have any opportunity to get over here in 2013 we highly recommend it!!!!!!!

Can't wait to share lots of stories and photos with everyone when we get back to Perth.

The Best Laid Plans...

Well, life can certainly throw you some curve balls! It turns out that the reason I have been feeling so unwell and tired over the last couple of months is that I am pregnant. 16 years after the birth of our last child my husband and I will be welcoming our next child into the world. A complete surprise but we are over the moon.

And now I have the chance to make lots of lovely baby things :-) ... once I stop feeling so tired that is.
