Not a whole lot going on.

Just a little bit of sewing, some more Stars and a couple of Crossroads which is the next block. I finished the last book I bought on holiday so I may get back into it now.
I have been to-ing and fro-ing with fabrics. Trying to decide on a background for my Jane P quilt. It's a matter of pinning to the wall and pinning the circle on top, taking a photo and taking it back down again and then pinning up the next and next again. I did leave the first one up for quite a few days but the others had a quick turn around. I still haven't made up my mind. They are all out of my stash.  See what you think, they are all 1m [40"] of fabric, so it's large.

This one is used in the centre shapes.


This is a red stripe, old Rocky Mountain range.

The Holidays are Over.

I've been away on holiday enjoying wonderful warm weather in Queensland. First we visited our daughter and her husband and stayed a few days with them. She came with me to see the British Quilts in Brisbane. It was a great show of quilts and needlework items. I got to see the original Sundial quilt which is magnificent, along with the King George111 quilt, the Rajah quilt and the Changi quilt made by children. Many, many beautiful quilts. Unfortunately no photos were allowed inside.

At the back of my daughters house is this  Frangipani tree in among the plants and rocks. It looked wonderful, bare of leaves and flowers at this time of the year. She also has a grove of them around the corner.
 and her 'patchwork' of cacti in a little courtyard next to the house with different coloured plants and stones.
Then it was off first to Maloolaba
and then to Noosa and the Jazz Festival.

Sunny one day, perfect the next.
