I always love working with different color groups that I have never put together before. Each time I made one, it became my new fav!
Now that my bee committments are all up to date, I have been able to piece something together for myself. I just LOVE Tula Pink's Birds and the Bees range and when I was lucky enough to win a jelly roll of it from the Fat Quarter Shop, I couldn't wait to start cutting into it. I am using a design from Jelly Roll Dreams called Dripping with Diamonds and I am loving how this is turning out. The photo was taken at night so the color is not the best and doesn't show off the vibrancy of the fabrics, but I will take a better one in daylight when I have put the borders on.
In about 10 days I am heading off to Melbourne for 5 days with my eldest daughter for a spot of shopping. We decided to splash out so we're staying in the Swanston Hotel. Hopefully I will find some good quilting shops while I am there ;) Unfortunately, she is not quite so excited about that idea!! lol
Today we were privileged to meet one of NZ's finest rugby coaches, Graeme Henry. He was doing a book signing at the local bookstore and was so down to earth and friendly. He had taken the time to buy a raffle ticket from the Rose Society outside the front of the store before he went in and took the time to chat with all those he met on the way.
