Winter has blown into Sydney

What a week of sunshine, wind (big wind) and freezing temperatures.  Our thoughts go out to all our Blue Mountain friends who lost their electricity.  Some of the tales being told over the counter just sound horrible.  Makes you realise just how dependent we are on electricity.  How did we live before it arrived?  Was wool warmer then than it is now?  They did have lots of quilts though....

These fab quilts were seen on the premises this week.

We have a regular group of sewers called "Geraldine's Group".  This is Rose's Bordered Diamond quilt. 

This is Geraldine's Log Cabin quilt, she started the quilt in a Catherine Butterworth class.

If you have a group of friends, looking for a home we are happy to help.  If the room is free you can use it.  There is a small per head fee, and bookings are essential.   If you are in search of a group, don't forget our regular "Annandale Addicts" sewing days 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month.

Judy Day, our local hero of all things miniature, came looking for borders for her version of Kim Mclean's Lollipop Trees.  She has shrunk the 18" blocks down to 10" and we think it looks beautiful.


Today, in the shop, Catherine Butterworth is teaching part one of her Googley Eyes quilt.  You may have seen it in the Darling Harbour Quilt Show. 

This is a unusual view of a beautiful quilt, but the creative juices were running.

Here are two stars under construction. We can catch up on them in the second class and see how they have developed.

Catherine is making this quilt for her daughter's birthday.  Wow.


Some new Brandon Mabley designs turned up in the shop this week.  Love the cardboard box!
