Happiness is a blog!!

My sad little blog - there are never any photos - it seems so hard to get them from my camera to my blog - maybe one day I'll work out a system - but what I do love about my blog is using it to remind me of this amazing journey I have been on in the past year from complete novice - to complete novice who can manage to finish a quilt or two or even ten !! Very happy about that.

And for the best info on what I  did this last weekend - which was go to the Australasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne have a look at Theresa and Kay's blogs because they said it all - so much more eloquently than me - we had a great time - you can see the smile on my face. Thanks for a great day girls!!

For Jenny

When I got the call that my best friend Jenny's father had died I was in Hettie's Patch - so rather than get a bunch of flowers for her a made her a quilt. She wrote last week to say how much she loved it - the gorgeous Alexander Henry fabrics a=designed themselves and I had my first go at leaf quilting - and I am quite proud of the results.
