One wonderful thing that happened to me recently was a most beautiful gift from Judy Newman (a very fine house) who made this absolutely stunning pincushion for me, I adore it!! I have a thing going for mushrooms and fungi right now, so her gift is perfect. It is almost too good to start stabbing with pins, I think I will enjoy it pinless for a while!!
Judy made my pincushion based on a new pattern by Louise (Lululollylegs). The good news is that Louise is coming to Treehouse Textiles to spend a day showing us how to make one, yay.
These pincushions are large, around 6-7 inches across and about 3 inches high. There are 8 different applique designs to choose from, or you can design your own! Book here for the class on Saturday 23rd March.
So what else has been happening? Our crazy Melbourne summer weather...36 degrees (centigrade) one day, 13 degrees the next has been sending Millie (our Groodle) a little crazy! She does enjoy a good snuggle under any quilt she can find on a cold summer's day!!
A new coffee shop has opened up near us, Commonfolk Coffee is an amazing space set in an industrial shed. It's a large area with beautiful hand crafted timber tables, a quiet room in front, 3 fabulous artist spaces where you can watch the artist at work, and their own coffee roaster! This is going to be a place DH and I will hang out a lot!
And check out the beautiful home grown roses Deb (72 Derwents) bought round last weekend, I only wish you could smell them, they are amazing! Deb said they are called Child's Rose (I think I got that right!!).
Well, that's about it, I have no quilty photo's and not much else to say, I hope I get my blogging mojo back soon, I am still stitching, but haven't gotten around to taking photo's, ooops! Thank you for your patience. xo
