So what has been happening here with me lately, that is a very good question. 

Firstly, I would like to announce that the pattern for Roses in the Attic is now available under my Country Matters format, if you would like a copy just email your details to me. It is quite a quick one to make, having has less fabrics to use if you want to keep it simpler with fabric choices etc.

Secondly, a couple of weeks ago we had the fabulous pleasure of Chris Jurd down at Wagga to spend the weekend with us, inspire and teach us new things.  She bought with her a lovely case full of quilts for show and tell, and I attempted at a couple of the blocks of her Lots of Dots quilt.

This one was Bev's

This one was mine, trying to match up with a bedroom

and this is the second one, slightly smaller.  Originally I was going to do more, but will now leave them for awhile, perhaps cushions will be there destiny.

These two were up the other end of the table, just stunning.

And back to class happenings, Brenda is one of the newcomers to class, she has made my Salvation Jane, but added an extra geese and block border for a queen size.  It is just gorgeous,

and this is a close up of the corner square and fabrics.

 Thirdly, more quilt shows.  Ariah Park (west of Temora) are having and Quilt and Craft show on the weekend of 20 and 21 October, 10 am to 4pm as part of the Mary Gilmore Cultural Festival.  There will be a Christmas challenge (wall hanging, table runner or tree decoration) as well as Country music and market day.  For more information email Helen Judd at:

The spring weather is creeping in longer days and it will be nice to see the flowering trees and shrubs bloom and green up.  Canola paddocks are a brilliant yellow now and it won't be long till we get to the business end of the year.  I won't think about it yet, but shall leave you for now to go and make a nice coffee and play with fabric (lol)!
Bye for now, Janelle xx
