Catch up

I have had some very enjoyable sit and sews this week at Bellarine Quilters, Seachange and St Leonards. I missed the show and tell at Bellarine, was slow getting the camera out, Angela had made some wonderful charity quilts.
Laurie made this beautiful table runner, love the colours she has used.

I came home with a bundle of fabrics to try and make some charity quilts...spidey man, spidey man...(woops started singing there!!)
I have started to work on another Aussie hero quilt, the request was for half square triangles made into chevrons in white and colour.

Today Jill was working on her lollipop trees, love how she does her circles in little foil packs! Looks like there are chocolate treats coming!!

The half square triangles are coming along ok, I had a few strange rows for a while but hubby set me right!!

And the Supervisor was snoring at the end of the table!!
Hubby was doing a pastel yesterday and  he has finished it today, I requested a painting of one of the Hobbit houses at Hobbiton.
He is still tweaking but I love it.
Off now to do some more half square triangles.
Happy sewing.

Ooo that quilt is going to be lovely and hopefully quick to do. Your hubby is like mine, sets me straight when I need help with block placements and colourways. Looove your hubby's pastel drawing! ( I shall now email you with Mark's comment ...not sure I should put it on here lol. ) 😉
