A Trip to Warrandyte

There's lots to see and do in lovely Warrandyte.  I was heading out that way to have lunch with some lovely stitching friends so I thought I'd leave a bit early and pop into Bustle and Bows.  Not that long ago they moved to Warrandyte and I hadn't been into the new location so it was lovely to have a look around.


You can find them at 260 Yarra Street Warrandyte Phone 98440588
My dear friend Christa gave me a pack of  Hawthorn Ridge and I've decided to use it to make more hexies for my Di Ford Quilt.  
Aren't the included fabrics beautiful?  they will go perfectly in my version of Rotherfields Greys.



It is always fabulous to pop on over to Samelia's Mum where gorgeous Anorina blogs and shares her considerable talents and creativity with us.  Please follow this LINK to make this delightful EPP Kindle case.
Many thanks to Anorina.

Wishing you every happiness over the weekend.  
See you on Monday when I'll announce the two winners of the cute animal panels in my giveaway.
There is still time to enter.  
Just leave me a comment on last Monday's post to enter the draw.  I'm happy to post anywhere in the world.
Love

A Giveaway

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  I'm one of the people who was very happy to see the end of 2016...not a good year but 2017 is going to be so much better.

I've been playing around with the look of my blog.  I change its look every year and this year I thought I'd go for a softer, more vintage look.  I'm not sure if this is how it will be in the end as I must admit I love playing around with the colours, buttons etc.  Hope you'll hang in there with me as this year's look evolves.


Last Friday I spent a fabulous day out and about in Melbourne's north east visiting quilt shops and eating delicious food.  Here's where we went, just in case you are ever in Melbourne and want to take the same trip.


282 Wingrove St, Fairfield VIC 3078, Australia 
GJ's Discount Fabrics
31 Steane St, Fairfield VIC 3078, Australia

The Quilt Shop
2/38 Bridge St, Eltham VIC 3095, Australia

Petty's Orchard
1 Homestead Rd, Templestowe VIC 3106, Australia

I had the most wonderful day with Christine, Ann, Gail, Allison, Carol and gorgeous little Angus.  Thank you all for making the day so much fun.


I have two lovely panels to giveaway as a thank you for visiting my blog.  One is for followers and one is for anyone.  I am happy to post anywhere in the world.  Just leave me a comment on this post some time in the next week.  I'll announce the winners next Monday.  Please mention if you are a follower and whether you would like the bear or the owl.

I bought these panels from The Quilt Shop in Eltham. If you love these panels as much as me you can buy them from the shop.  They sell online and ship overseas too.
Here's a LINK to a charming project to start the year.  It is very kindly shared by Bev at Fabulous Flamingo Toes.  Thank you so much Bev.
Wishing you a week filled with wonder
Love
