August 7 2012 Quilting Newsletter

Knock Knock, itís me popping onto your screen for a quick hello, and how you going? I hope allís well at your place. Things are a little muddled here at present. Iím actually writing this from my daughterís home about 200kmís (150 miles) from Brisbane. I made a rush trip up here on Sunday after my daughters gorgeous Labrador, Cadbury managed to eat rat poison (or eat something that had eaten rat poison). My daughter was in a state to say the least and Cadbury wasnít very good either.

In the country, rat poison is used frequently, and having only just moved to this home, they were unaware that there might have been any lying about. Well, trust a lab to sniff it out. Jokes aside, they were very lucky to have received treatment early, and heís on the mend.

Thatís the reason Iím here. I am chief puppy sitter! Iím really enjoying the country. There really is nothing like the quietness and the freshness of the countryside. Iíve bought my sewing machine and am madly quilting a quilt Iíve had sitting at home for some time, never having the chance to get to it during my ďnormalĒ week. (Whatever is normal these days?). A few walks in between, and itís very relaxing too!

As youíve guessed, Iíve nutted out the computer issue I had last time, and am able to get this newsletter to you on time!! Yeah!!

Last Sunday I posted an article on a great DVD I received to review titled ďGive and Take AppliquťĒ. I really enjoyed this DVD, and the presenters are a hoot. Very natural gals, with a bit of a laugh here and there. I really recommend this DVD to anyone who is looking for an easy to do, and fabric saving technique. Hereís the link to that article:

Well, with a bit of spare time on my hands, Iíve been hanging five (fingers) on my computer keyboard and have found the following goodies for you. Have fun dude!! a recut Dresden plate pattern hereís some simple tips on machine quilting you might find this little bit of design theory very helpful. Remember the rule can be applied to quilting also. yes, I do have a baby shoe fetish not quilting but awesome.......(click on the video and watch an amazing calendar). a cycle bucket a pretty appliquť pattern Iíve always wanted a unique one of kind shower curtain Ė hereís how a very interesting interview with a crazy patchworker

I might have gone over the top on the goodies this week. Ooops! Must away, the washing is done, and itís time for our morning ramble through the fields. Take care everyone, try and find some time for quilting during your week, and Iíll be back again next week.

Cheerio for now
