My Quilting Friend Maria
is having a Solo Exhibition of her Quilts

Opening on Wednesday 30th Jan. in Ballarat.
Maria also has a blog called
She is hoping to have a blog meet and meet the artist on the Wed ~ if anone is close by to Ballarat and would like to join us for Coffee, that would be great.

This is what I've been up to . . . my neighbour over the road bought a new dress for an outing this Saturday.  She thought a little bag might be nice.
It is the Wristlet Pattern from Nichole Mallaleau - I've learnt all my best bag making skills from Nikki.

I even used a bit more from my Winter Boot, for the "dingle" at the front!

She was thrilled with the result, and so was I.

. . . and then there were 2.  Some mothers can only manage 2 babies, so these 2 beauties are nearly a week old now, and when I checked tonight, were just just just starting to get some yellow feathers.  They survived the VERY HOT DAY yesterday, so I think they are going to be OK.

What a lovely bag you created.

Glad your little ones survived the heat and getting their little yellow feathers.

May your friend have a great exhibition. Have fun.

Flower gardening has become a very popular hobby for many gardeners. It is very inexpensive and very self rewarding when the flowers begin to bloom.
