June 18


Once again I have been absent in blog land. Things have been a tad hectic here recently. Am out of bed early this morning and plan a catching up day, back to quilts and firstly an update on the last couple of weeks.

I will start with a retreat at The Sanctuary, although Michele has already given a great report. We all had a great time, lots of sewing, some Downton Abbey watching at the same time, and keeping warm by the wood fire. Some photos below.



Jocelyn trimming her completed blocks, and is now in the process of putting them together. Can’t wait to see this finished, as it is a quilt that she has done in my Decorative Machine Stitching classes.


I think someone “borrowed” my camera to take a photo!! I do prefer to be taking the photos, not be in them! But don’t Helen and I look to be very industrious.


These are Val’s Ring Cycles blocks, done in a Lessa Siegele class. Yesterday I saw further progress as rows are being stitched together.


Christina concentrating hard cutting her star blocks, which are pieced perfectly, and my New York Beauty in progress, started in a class with Lessa Siegele earlier this year.




Some retail therapy at Val’s shop, Maneys of Mundulla.


And on the way home we did the tourist thing and stopped to see the white kangaroos, which Bordertown is famous for.

It’s now 6.30 am and I better get to the shower and change out of the dressing gown. It might not be a good look for the day.

Will report on another retreat at The Sanctuary last weekend another day. It is 3 weeks until the next retreat, so  hope to get some quilting done by then.

The next weekend retreat will be another UFO, work on your own projects time, first weekend in July, if you are interested in some time out at The Sanctuary, please contact me. There are still a couple of spots left.                                                                

And Christmas In July at end of July still has 2 places, so would love to hear from you for a fun time.

Have a good day, whatever you are doing,

Blessings, From Jude

So glad you got some stitching time with friends at last! Seems like everyone enjoyed Downton Abby too, so hope they are making another series!

What a lovely time all of the quilters must have enjoyed at The Sanctuary. White kangaroos? Wow, I never knew they existed. Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see all of the beautiful quilts after you quilt them. Blessings.
