June 30 2010 Quilting Newsletter

Hi there quilters, another week has whizzed past and Iím just popping in to catch up. Itís the winter midyear school holidays here; our children break for two weeks. This means that all the cinemas and theatres, shopping centres and museums are full of children and their (sometimes) hassled mothers.

When my children were little, I used to love the school holidays and was always sorry when they finished. I used to spend weeks prior to the holidays planning each dayís activities. I figured that if I kept my two littlies pretty busy with lots of interesting things to do and see, then none of us would get frazzled at the edges. And it worked. My two, now grown adults, often comment on how they enjoyed their holidays, and the magical mystery tours we embarked on. Sure it took extra effort on my part, but it proved to be a great memory maker in the long run.

School holidays for me, now in my fifties and no grandchildren, means staying away from all the busy venues mentioned above, so this past week has been pretty quiet for me. Iíve been busy creating a table runner in hardanger (needleworked lace from Finland). Quilting is my first love, but I do enjoy needlework. Itís always good to have a needlework project on the go, as it is usually very portable and can be put down and picked up pretty easily.

Iíve also been busy writing some more articles for you. Last Sunday I posted an article on a book review. The book is titled Sew Serendipity and itís really a lovely tutorial book for the beginner sewer. Hereís the link to that article:

So onto my little pressies for you this week. Iíve had a bit of time on my hands, so have been looking for extra quirky things. Hope you like them: youíd think Iíd be over hexagon quilts, but noooo! I love Ďem! a gorgeous bucket basket for your childís bike great for those plastic bags so cute and finishable!

OOPS, last week I somehow managed to get the link wrong for the Pet Mat, hereís the correct one, sorry if I inconvenienced anyone!

Well, I must away and do something to get warm! Hope allís well at your place and Iíll speak with you again next week. Remember to have fun with your quilting.
Cheerio for now
