Where do I begin......................
I just can't believe how quickly each week is flying bye at the moment, last week was one of those weeks, Nicole broke her foot, then had her house broken into, everything is fine thankfully, the police acted quickly and recovered all the stolen goods. Sebastian had his knee operated on in Sydney, so another quick trip (5 1/2 hours drive) down, then back the next day, he is back at school now so hopefully it won't take too long to heal. At least he hasn't any more footy for the season, his Farrer 1st 13's lost last Thursday to a very big Sydney team.

Then tomorrow I will have a new group of ladies joining me for a 2 day retreat, that will make 4 in the last two weeks. I must confess that I forgot to take photos of 2 groups, sorry but I look forward to seeing some photos of their finished quilts.

This is a photo of last weekends group, with some of their wonderful work, we all had a great time, those log cabin blocks look terrific, Gai, you must be very pleased with the quilt.
Thanks for including me in your Sunday night swap, I think I will make an Autumn Leaf quilt out of those fabulous charm squares I received. Don't hold your breath waiting, I will add it too the long list, but will make sure I will share the blocks when I do get to make some.

Also this is a photo of Peg and Dale (especially for Chookyblue ) they are both newcomers to blog land so pop over and say hello. They both decided to work on a Pleated Log Cabin quilt, after heaps of sewing they did manage 10 finished blocks each. Both lots of blocks were looking fantastic - don't you all agree.

In between everything last week I did manage to write my August newsletter which can be viewed on my web site for anyone interested.

I think this will have to do for tonight, I am ready for bed and have a couple of big days ahead.

thanks for dropping over, I will post again soon.

What a week you have had. Hope the Nicole and Sebastian as recovering and keeping there spirits up. Didnt Nicole break her foot before?? Oh the pleated log cabin blocks look fantastic. i must have a go at that. I brought a Canadian table runner pattern with sort of log cabin in the middleand log cabin pine trees. it looks like lots of fun.
Well have a good week if not a bit hectic. Tina
