...this is the amazing quilt Jo made for her son who sadly passed away when he was only 18....4500 half inch pieces, glued to the sheer background over a pixillated image and then sewn with zig zag over every piece.....many hours of work, but a beautiful image.....

cheescake tough Robyn????Lol!! We had a wonderful day...so much laughter...

I always enjoy Mill Rose days.
Tania wasn't with us today as she went in to hospital on Friday to have her gall bladder removed...the operation was more complicated than expected so she had full on surgery...we called in to see her at Bacchus Marsh hospital on the way home...she is going to be moved to a city hospital when they find her a bed...and will most likely be there for a week....we wished her a speedy recovery from everyone.
Have a great day everyone!
