Last weekend I went to a local quilt exhibition. Unfortunately I can’t show you photos of the quilts as I think there are permission issues. However, I bought some goodies. Here’s what I bought…

a cute pincushion



a lovely hand made card and some lavender pouches

P1050987some Japanese fabric

P1050990and some funky fabric

P1050989From the quilt show I went to a store with a sale and got some gorgeous fabrics for $5 per metre.

P1050980Later in the week I washed an old quilt but seeing it on the line in the sunshine made me realise that it still is one of my favourites even though (or perhaps because) it’s not perfect.


I also had a go at making a New York Beauty block from scraps and while there is certainly room for improvement I’m quite pleased  with it.

P1050977And here’s what was inside

I hope all you mothers out there enjoy your day on Sunday and are remembered by your offspring no matter where in the world they are. Happy Mother’s Day!
