Having fun

Last week I popped over to the Cranbourne Botanic Gardens and enjoyed an afternoon with Leesa Chandler as part of one of her Try It Out sessions.  It was fabulously arranged with project stations all around the room each featuring a different charming project.  

Everything you could need, even a needle, was included in the kit. 

Dotted around the room were inspiring pieces of Leesa’s  textile art and she'd brought along a selection of goodies from her shop as well.
Everyone sat around and stitched in a very convivial atmosphere and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  I can't wait to attend another TIU session and I will be able to do just that when Leesa visits us on September 19th
Hope to see you there and don't forget you can bring along your friends.  Visitors to NOTY are very welcome.

Australia's Top Quilting Model

Because I am a little bit silly I ran around at the NOTYQ retreat pretending to be a scout from Australia's Next Top Model and lots of lovely NOYTQ ladies struck their best modelling pose.

Thank you so much

 There was a raffle at the NOTYQ retreat to raise funds for Banksia Palliative Care...the prize was a magnificent pineapple quilt made by some of the guild members and guess who won
Lucky Lucky Me
I am absolutely thrilled.
This is a very special quilt, as it is NOTYQ's 21st anniversary quilt. 

NOTYQ plays a really important part in my life so I am delighted this beautiful quilt has come to my is very special and so are my NOTYQ friends.

Many many thanks
