Monbulk Community Quilt Show

Where did February go ……………… I know I’ve been very busy and it is a short month but ……..

Anyway have been working on quite a few new projects for upcoming events. So I can’t show anything just yet.

The Monbulk Community Quilt Show is on this coming weekend in Monbulk on the 15th March. I will be having a display at the show so come by and say hello if you are in the area. It is a great show and the first 100 people in the door get a free showbag filled with lots of goodies. This is very popular. The show raises funds for the Monbulk CFA and admission is $5. The CWA holds a cake stall, there are usually Devonshire teas and a sausage sizzle and the local footy team run a plant stall, so it ends up being a lovely day out in the hills and who doesn’t love a shop!!!

I have also been preparing for the Stitching Soiree held by Lisa from Fig n Berry in April so have been busy stitching. After this is the Australian Quilt Convention in Melbourne at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, so it’s shaping up to be another busy month.

The garden has been neglected this month but it still has been busy producing a nice little crop. This is what I collected from the garden this morning – it is amazing how much you can find when you go looking. From inside the house I wouldn’t have realised how much was out there. Now what’s for dinner tonight – frittata maybe????

I do have one I can show. This is vintage Rose and is a workshop that will be offered in the watercolour technique at The Quilter’s Patch on the 7th June from 10-30 to 12.30pm. I recently ran this in Rosebud at Sew in Love with Fabric & Thread and the ladies loved it and did a terrific job. In class you learn how to work with watercolour pencils on fabric and start your embroidery. the pattern is of a Patchwork Block Folder and pincushion with scissor holder.
