Something I forgot to mention on my last post, is that darling hubby turned 65 on 15th March. Oh dear, time is definitely marching on and I'm not too far behind.

This is the raffle quilt for the Warragul Lioness Quilt Show to be held in September this year. It was made by several members from donated fabric. We chose to quilt it with "Pretty Paisley" from Willow Leaf Studio.

On my desk at the moment is this lovely rose. I usually grow this rose in each garden we've had as my Mum's maiden name was Pilgrim.
Well, that was the week that was. Next quilt onto the machine is an old mystery quilt I made in the 90's and will be for one of my best friend's sister and daughter, who are going through a tough time. These unquilted quilts definitely were eventually made to be used. I don't feel as guilty now with so many tops to be quilted.
I still enjoy the first stages best - colour and fabric choices, maybe me designing and then sewing and seeing what it eventually looks like.
Thanks to all my comments and have a lovely coming week.
