Daylesford 3rd year running and still loving it...


Last Saturday I went to Daylesford Craft Experience at Pepper's Resort in Hepburn Springs.

Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches and Jodie Carlton of Ric Rac were the Designers for the weekend.

 Jodie did gorgeous little robots for the day

Natalie did some stitchery’s to make into a tote bag, needle case and canvas for the wall.

Natalie brought along her BOM Quilt Tail feathers for us to look at, its’ so nice to see the original!

 Mum has made one and it is sitting waiting to be quilted at the moment; aah must get time to do that!


This is my first finish from the weekend. The baby yellow robot, His is a little “special” in places but I’m using him as a pincushion so you won’t know when he is covered in

I have been having periods of A.D.D lately and cannot settle with one project so I’m managing to do a little to a lot of UFO’s , if you follow me on Instagram this will totally make sense!

One finish I have done is my Vintage Modern Piece of Cake 3 quilt top; it’s ready to quilt...
Really happy with this one...

Quilting Retreat...

Last weekend, I and six friends went to Alexandra for a Quilt extravaganza!
OK not quite an extravaganza but we sure had fun!

The Vickery is a house set up especially for Quilting Retreats (girls fun).
My sweet Garden Quilt kept me toasty (plus a Doona and another Quilt of mine) on the freezing cold nights,I even made my own matching pillowcase out of Ruby...I know it's sad!

We all bought a jellyroll along and made a 1600 Quilt, One quilt pattern I will go back too when I need a Quilt in a hurry. Apparently someone pieced this quilt in 36 minutes, they must have had a rocket up there bum coz we took probably closer to 90 minutes.

All quilts turned out magnificently but alas we all packed up in such a hurry we never got to the photo of them all together. Here are 3 of them...
Simply Color by V & Co.

Reunion by Sweetwater 

Juggling Summer by Zen Chic
