Following on from last time

Wow, I have had some real weird problems with Blogger... but looks like all it now working.  So without further ado... some photos as promised:

First off, my Echoes of Log Cabins at the Beach... on the bed.  This is now in Auckland awaiting the start of the Big Quilt exhibition on Saturday (but the opening event is on Friday).  But I just wanted to see what it would look like actually on the bed.  Just in case it sells and I never see it again.

This is Little Miss Nadia posing at The Country Yard's exhibition... they had quilts draped over all sorts of things... the old car and tractor were great.

Next, I fell for the needlebook kit - so tucked it into my stash of things to buy...

And these fat eighths just wanted to come home with me.  Pick the one Nadia chose.

 We were both lucky to win spot prizes - amazing since we were numbers one and two.  Nadia chose a stitching kit, and I chose the biggest package there - not that I was being greedy, but there was a little voice shouting "pick the biggest one mummy" - so I just had to.

This is the table runner I won as my spot prize
 I had admired this before... although panels are not really my thing, and something I probably wouldn't have bought myself... but check it out at my house.  You couldn't have chosen a better colour scheme.

Excuse the mess... these photos definitely weren't staged... just a quick flash of the camera as life went on.

I also bought a quilt hanger...

And to finish off, a bag of loot from Spotlight.  I have a backing in mind for some of this, and the rest is going into the stash cupboard.  Because you never know when you might need it!


  1. I love that quilt! The colors and the design are so fun and modern.

  2. Lovely quilt! So calm and serene. I like how you put it on the bed..just in case! :) Lovely daughter!
