July 27 2012 Quilting Newsletter

Hi everyone, my apologies for being sooooo late with this week’s newsletter. I was too clever for my own good. I have been visiting my daughter who has recently moved to a regional town in Queensland about three hours from here. To save taking my computer up with me, I intended to use my daughters computer to send my newsletter but , you guessed it, I couldn’t get it to work. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get it going from her computer.

So please forgive me, I don’t often mess up my timing for the newsletter, as I know that my readers do look forward to having it pop into their inbox each week. So I will hopefully make up for it by giving you DOUBLE the goodies than I normally send.

Whilst away, I was busy sewing curtains for my daughter’s home. It’s a very old Queenslander and is probably over 100 years old (that’s old for us Aussies!! I see wry smiles on English and European faces!!LOL). Not one of the windows was the same measurement of any other in the house, so I had to painstakingly measure each to get it right.

I’m not very good at curtain making, but they turned out OK, and my daughter was very impressed. I am feeling muscles I haven’t felt in years (in very odd places I might add!) as a result of climbing up and down on chairs to measure and fit. Anyway, good to be home and back with my darling, who incidentally managed quite well without me.

Last Sunday I posted an article about workshop requirements and posted a PDF list of things you might be needing when attending quilting workshops. Here’s the link to that article:

Over at the Forum we had a request from a reader about French Braid quilt patterns and techniques. There were a couple of replies on the forum, here’s the link:
