Snibble finished

I have finished my first schnibble. Leanne challenged me to do one schnibble a month and so far I am on target. It is hanging in the shop and you will notice that there is very little in the background. I have taken a lot of the displays down and hope to get more up next week. Maybe Leanne's quilt :). I was too busy on Saturday so here's hoping next week I may get something new up.
Terry and I had a lovely day at the Deloraine Craft Fair today. Despite the rain it was a good day. There were not a lot of people there so it was good to be able to see everything. The NZ Hoffman Challenge was great and it was wonderful to chat to Betty Twaddle, the organiser.

Ralph comes to class

As promised here is Ralph. He was a special guest at our class last Thursday. Luckily all of us were dog lovers and there were no cats to chases cos he was supposed to be taking it easy.
Ralph lapped up all the attention and I think we may have to ask him to come again soon.
I don't think we were influenced by the cup cakes he brought. :) Doesn't he look stylish in his red sequins?

Notice the new icon on the side bar? Well, Leanne, Rebecca, Kate and I are participating in Helen's new free friendship round robin. I will put up more info soon. Click on the logo to take you to Helen's site.
Happy Quilting

My first schnibble

This is my first quilt from the Schnibbles times two book by Carrie Nelson.
Leanne has issued the challenge to make one quilt a month for 12 months!
I used fabrics from the Sanctuary range.Just need to finish it by the end of
the month. If I can get her off the machine it won't take long.

We are a little excited today because Ralph is coming to class. Who is Ralph you
ask? Find out next post. Must not forget camera. Hope he's not camera shy.

More fabrics and quilts

These new fabrics ( Hope - Collection for a Cause) came in yesterday during my lunch break. Yes, I took time out to have lunch with Terry. I doesn't happen often and it was a lovely lunch. Anyway Leanne just had to open them and she hopes to use one of these charm packs for her challenge next month. More on this challenge tomorrow. To see what we have started go here.
