Something New-Hand Embroidery

Today I am beginning a new adventure, hand embroidery. I signed up for lessons at Craftpaks Embroidery shop in Heathmont. I have my requirements list of items in my favourite bag (remember when we made these Shelley) ready to go. 



Also an update on Eddie, he had a bad fall yesterday down the last couple of stairs (inside staircase) . Jim and I were out shopping  when Steve (son) rang to tell us what had happened. Thankfully we followed the vets advice kept him warm and cosy on the couch. He is now much better and we are all relieved the drama is over as we  (hubby and I) are leaving on Thursday for our NZ cruise.









Happy stitching.....

North of the Yarra 2018 Quilters exhibition

Waking up very early this morning I began making Golabki (Stuffed Cabbage Rolls)  special request from GD Jessica for dinner tonight.




When I had them made and safely in the fridge I then decided I still had enough time to go to the North of the Yarra 2018 Quilters exhibition. So many beautiful quilts on show and so hard to pick a favourite. While I was there I caught up with Karen from Mrs Martins Quilt shop, chattered to Di Ford while looking at her beautiful range of fabrics and gorgeous quilts, then Lovely Melody and Christine. On my way out Julia spotted me so more chatting. It’s amazing how many friends you catch up with  at quilt shows.....hehe....Below just some of the quilts.





















More photos in next post...
