Its a very quick hello today as the Blog is not playing nice & won't allow me to upload photo's properly
I've progressed on "Valley Forge" a Karen Styles design from Somerset Patchwork and have it all together only needing a saw-tooth border to complete. Hopefully there will be some free time on the weekend.
Its been fun to get back on the Pfaff; I'm eager to get this finished & finally have a quilt suitable for my boy Sam (he's 23)
Til next time
Happy Stitching & stay warm (or cool, depending where you are in this glorious world)

Recently JulieAnn and I ventured to Tumut in NSW for a weekend away sewing, relaxing & much needed Reviving of the Soul(s).
Tumut is a lovely little town on the northern foothills of the Snowy Mountains just an hour from me & a little longer for JulieAnn. And didn't we feel it with it snowing not too far away! Lucky for us we were kept warm & cozy in our Cabin at Riverglade Caravan Park; we even got electric blankets on our beds!! The facilities allowed for the cooking of Pumpkin Soup which really hit the spot (LOVE pumpkin soup) & did us for lunch as well. Plus an extra late checkout on Sunday meant more sewing & no rushing. It really was perfection. We are planning (or trying to) for our next getaway hopefully soon.
Our View out to the Tumut River on a Frosty Morning: so serene & peaceful.
Our hideout; can you feel our sadness as we had to leave??
And to prove JulieAnn was there & stitching: here are some photos!
Little Prince (Susan Smith design at Patchwork on Stonleigh) got his Stripes
And YES!! Sitting at her Bernina is JulieAnn
Trimming Chapman Quilt - Also a design by Susan Smith
This is such a beautiful quilt - all Hand Pieced!!
Also getting a trim for binding is Something About Florence (Another by Susan Smith)
I also got the machine out & gave the Pfaff a good work out. A new-old project Valley Forge a design by Karen Styles at Somerset Patchwork using Judy Rothermel fabric range Indigo Pewter & Honey. This has been packed away, cut, organised & ready to piece for several years. I'm happy to say it still has the appeal when I first chose the fabrics; my plan is for it to be a Sam Quilt. Since the weekend I'm ready to piece it all together (that will be next show & tell)
And Because We Can: We Do & We Did!
