Best friends

Best friends...
It's Sunday morning and I have returned from a swim in the crystal clear ocean with my son. He is leaving soon to live in Germany for a while...will miss him.
But than I think, you do have to let go of your kids and let them make their own experience. While children stay with you for a while, go and come when they are older it's a different story with your friends. They come into your life; it seems like - out of nowhere. Here they are, just toddled in and some stay for a day, a week, a month, a year or a lifetime.
You can see my lifetime friends and me here. We were in France on holidays. We can spend a lot of time together or just a few hours on the phone. It doesn't matter how much time we share, they are always with me, just like my children. Our souls are connected, our hearts sing when we see each other, we laugh and cry together. It's great to have these wonderful women in my life. Thank you

Dancing Leaves outside my window

I finished a new quilt "Dancing Leaves outside my window". This quilt is for my friend Megan. I gave it to her on Friday and therefore I can show it to world now.
She was thrilled and is now making her very first quilt herself. It will be for a single bed and she has choosen 15 different colours. Once finished I hope to show it off in my Gallery at my website.

Well my friends, this is it for today

What a beautiful day


What a beautiful day it is in Sydney today, the sun is up - crystal clear water, swimming just great, the waves are rolling in...

Went yesterday to my quilting group in Belrose and we had a lot of fun, which brings me to the subject of Quilting Groups. Find one in your local area and join if you can. They are usually during the day, but some are also in the evening. It's a great way to make new friends and I certainly have learnt a lot. Our quilting group has about 15 - 20 members, we pay a small fee to cover the cost of the hall. We don't teach as such, but knowledge is shared freely, which I love.

I've bought a whole new lot of fantastic fabrics designed by Kaffe Fassett, check them out on the website Yes, you can buy less than a metre of each of the fabrics, please send me an email with that request as I haven't been able to figure out how to modify the shopping cart as yet. Sometimes I think my time is better spent on quilting than figuring out the website! Anyway, do have a look and let me know what you think.

You can see the cushion cover that I made last Friday in my previous Blog. It was made from the fabric Dancing Leaves Fabric (KF), very beach like, refreshing and vibrant.

My first quilt

Just returned from my holiday up north and thought that I share yet another one of my quilts.
This is the very first quilt that I made. It took over a year to complete. I had no ruler, rotary cutter or any other quilting equipment at that time. However, I loved making this quilt and it turned out OK (my friends tell me so). Very colourful indeed.

You can view more pictures in my gallery.

Beach and Sand Quilt

Sharing with you the quilt that I made for Elle.
Since she is a surfer I thought this one is refecting her passion and how she colours our world.

What a beautiful day this one was

Went swimming in our wonderful ocean at North Curl Curl today with Annie, my dear friend. The water was crystal clear, the waves coming in nicely, water about 24 degrees.
What a wonderful world we live in
Thank you
