Naracoorte quilt show

Last Friday and Saturday the Naracoorte group held their quilt show, and a few cars made the journey from Bordertown.

A lovely day out, Saturdays weather was cool, but sunny, and we managed to find a few shops in town as well.

Below is Marie’s Licorice Allsorts, a quilt as you go, made in a workshop with Mary Williams.


And this is for you Faye, a row of Bedford quilts, made by the Naracoorte girls! There were a few more, couldn’t get them all in the photo.



Above is Marie’s jigsaw quilt, and made to showcase her hand dyed fabrics.  And below is another quilt of Marie’s, which is really stunning, and a great use of scrap fabrics.


And here is Marie, standing in front of her stall, where she had her fabrics for sale. The Quilters Guild of SA are holding a Quilter’s Market on September 7th, and there will be at least 20 tables of goodies for sale, including Marie selling her “Holly Handdyes”

So if you are looking for a day out, and need more quilting stuff (?), then head to Adelaide and 312 Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Brooklyn Park, is the place to be.


I have spent quite a bit of time googling information this week, about the iron levels in various foods. Blood tests show that my iron levels are very low, and so I am trying to boost them, and looking for foods that are high. Also am taking an iron supplement, and will have another test in 3 months, so see if there is an improvement. Very interesting reading and finding out that other foods combined either increase the absorption of iron, or decrease it.

Well, that’s all for this post. Enjoy your day,

Blessings, From Jude

only thing I know about iron is that you get more if you combine it with vitamin C, eg eat steak and orange juice at same meal! I have just taken DS2 to a good dietician, if you need some extra help.
