Amazing Week long post make coffee

My week has been wonderful and I need to share it with all of you my Friends

Friday  I was featured on Friday Friends over at Blue Mountain Daisy  a first. Lots of fun thank you Rachael!

Saturday  2 quilts finished for Windsor Community Quilters.  Both quilts were started by others and I rescued the blocks and incomplete top making comfy quilts.



The garden furniture quilt has pleased the maker of the blocks. I'm happy Fredia's happy.


A partially completed top from an unknown quilter. I button holed the row of applique on the right and added side and top borders. Nice to collaborate with a kindred spirit.

Sunday a special kind of shopping



Trunk Shopping  a variation on shopping your stash. The trunk arrived in Australia 2 months after DH and I did holding all our worldly possessions.



A few samples to audition


Try again



Ah! more pop!



Sides cut and ready for assembling on Tuesday.

I'm getting tired and it isn't even Monday.

Monday no photos I took the camera to quilting to take pictures but had so much fun teaching some basic felting (for 5 hours) that i forgot to snap everyone having fun. Great night of skill sharing what a buzz.

Tuesday was Community quilts and some of us worked on tops using Dorthy's scrap strips.


The lay out of the greens was a completed top by mid afternoon.  I stitched on all the edges and started on putting the rows together.

Wednesday featured some unpicking of a different type



Stitches removed and skin cancer all gone. To celebrate I stopped at Hobbysew


Eye candy is NOT fattening. Besides I have used 5 1/2 meters of fabric from the stash since Saturday and I only bought 6 20cm pieces.    More celebrating DH and I went to the local Thai restaurant with a bottle of bubbly to toast the SALE of the two story house. Yeah!! the no more stairs journey is complete after 8 months.

Thursday  to be continued.......
