More quilt market photos


Monica Poole from Moonshine design with new simple clothing designs, quilts and bags.


Anni Downes from Hatched and Patched and me.


Me and Libby Richardson  with her new block of the month.


Bronwyn Hayes from Red Brolly, Kerrie from XLN and me (again).


Brenda Ryan and me with her new block of the month.

Photos were very kindly taken by Terry.  I do thank him (I think).  We did have a very wonderful time in Melbourne. It’s always good to get away ,catch up with and make new friends, source great fabrics and get new ideas.

In the next post I will be giving away some new fabrics so stay tuned.

AQM and great weekend

As promised I am posting about last weekend. It was great. Caught up with so many people I hadn’t seen for a long, long time. Met some new people, and didn’t stop talking all weekend.  Spent lots of money!!!  Wonderful catching up with Rebecca, and her Mum and Aunt.  We wont leave it so long next time and maybe she will recognise me!


Here’s Jo at the beginning of the show on Helen’s Pattern Press stand. Unfortunately I didn’t get back in time to take more photos of the stand and before you knew it this was the end.


All packed up for this year.  But I did take heaps more photos of other stands, so I will post them tomorrow.

Long weekends

I have been lucky enough to have had a four day break over the long weekend. We went to the Deloraine Craft Fair on Friday and then spent the rest of the weekend at St Helens. Deloraine was great, so many terrific crafts people. I even tried my hand at glass bead making but I don’t think I will change crafts for a while.

It was lovely to catch up with Annie at St Helens and to just rest and sew for the weekend.


I took this photo on one of my walks.  I think a tree quilt might happen soon.


Saw the Harleys on the way home from a drive to Exeter last weekend. Were they not a magnificent sight!

And this weekend I will be in Melbourne at the AQM checking out all the great fabrics and designs and attending a lecture with McKenna Ryan and several great Australian designers.

Back next week with lots of photos from Melbourne.

More Rouenneries

I'm back! Well I haven't been very far away but I have been very busy and computer stuff gets left to the bottom of the pile. But as you will see from the photo, I hope I can remember how to add it, I have made another sample from my current favourite fabric range. All the fabrics are in stock now and selling fast.
