Whew - School's Back Soon!

The Little Treasures are here with me now after a sleepover - seems like Nanny's place is the most popular - very little Lurline action is going on these days!

As I have mentioned, I'm trying to get off the ground with Granny Squares - now I'm not a wool girl, but this is glorious! It is created by Biggan, a Swedish fashion designer who emigrated to Australia - 64 glorious colours and I am particularly taken with the one above!

A tiny bit of progress on my Icecream Quilt - I'll get there! Quite a bit brighter than the original!

These blankies are nearly 6 years old - dearly loved and as you can see sadly worn - new ones are on the agenda and I have Byron's fabric ready to go - not quite settled on Heidi's yet!

Proud little Australians - they have made the most of it this week! Happy day everyone!

Sweet proud Australians! Your new wools are so lovely. I like every colour of them. Your ice cream quilt will be beautiful again. (have you ever made a quilt that is not beautiful?)

Hi Lurline, I love the colours of the wool, they are very nice. It's fantastic the range of colours you can buy these day. Some of the baby wool is stunning. Your quilts don't look too bad for their age. Happy quilting with the new ones. Kind regards, Anita.
