Kitty News

My darling girl just spent some time with friends Suzy and Peter who love her and always seem to enjoy her company. And during a visit to the Kirkaldy Quilt Shop in Strathalbyn ,G designed her own new red and black quilt, The staff translated her pattern in to a custom quilt and today Suzy brought me the fabric all ready to sew with a pattern with instructions. Very impressive for my 13 year old - she must have been watching me - Another quilt on the to do list - which is great fun for me. Thank you Suzy.

New for Suzy

I had promised my dear friend Suzy that I would make her a quilt and on a recent trip to Mt Macedon she bought a wide range of the June's Backyard fabric from Mt Macedon Quilting. Lovely pinks and black and a challenge for me to design something that she would like. I used my computer to design a pattern for the first time and emailed it to her for approval. She loved it and today when she visited and saw the half finished quilt on my design wall (make that my floor) - we played around and got exactly the pattern we wanted. A joint effort and lovely outcome - now for the sewing.

Cousin completed
