Wednesday is cancelled. Well not the whole day, obviously. As many of you know I am jetting off on Wednesday morning to the other side of the world to help Luvvy celebrate a significant birthday. The world’s-best-right-hand-woman Jan will be ensuring that the Apatcheez continue their classes and will look after the four legged Apatcheez, the house, and, well, just about everything really. BUT she is not available on Wednesday morning and I will be flat out like a lizard drinking working out whether to take the extra t-shirt/jeans/coat. This means that there will be no Wednesday morning class but normal service will be resumed for the evening class and you hardly notice that I’ve gone.
The Bowie post last week resonated with many of you and it was the 100th blog post so that’s a milestone. I was asked what else we saw in Melbourne. The Facebook followers were treated to some of these photos at the time but here they are some more for you.
The old and the new side by side
Melbourne is…. a chocolate shop at every turn
Melbourne is… bad for your waistline
Melbourne is… trams and history and St Kilda Pier and Luna Park
And Melbourne is….Flinders Street station and wonderful restaurants and funny laneways
That one was for the teenager-in-residence. And while we’re on that subject…Melbourne is…the excitement when your Mum finds a patchwork shop…
Say no more.
Last week the Apatcheez finished more projects. Here’s some show-and-tell
Isn’t that lovely? This is Lesa’s beautifully embroidered ring-bearer’s cushion for her daughter’s wedding. This wedding has been all about the special touches that only handmade can bring – from this cushion to the beads embroidered on the veil. I’m sure it will be very special and all my best wishes for the wedding on 10th October. I’ll be thinking of you while I watch the Australia v Wales rugby match.
The postie did bring lots of new Kaffe Fassett Collective fabric as well as another range Letter Stitch – very graphic. Also a big bundle of loveliness from Tilda..
Have a look on the website under Tilda fabric, kits, Tilda Club and embellishments to see what all the fuss is about.
And we had lots to see in class last week. Everyone was very focused…
Until next time happy quilting
