Handmade and a Beautiful Quilt

The newest issue of Handmade is out and there is a great article about our Needlework Group ....

Some nice pictures and a lovely story about the ladies who I am lucky to stitch with each week ...

We had a weekend in Sydney with our gorgeous new grandson Jed  and here he is on the quilt made by the Tuesday night Needlework ladies .... cute as a button !!

Ash and Jed at the "Smile Like Drake" paddle out on Sunday at Shelley Beach in Sydney .... it was a year since Ash and Tim lost one of their best friends, Chris Drake, and the "Smile Like Drake" Foundation had a paddle out to commemorate his life and raise funds for surf awareness ... a great tribute to his life!

A Sashiko Shoulder Bag I have put together for our Needlework ladies to stitch in the coming weeks !


  1. Great to see BBN in print, the ladies will be thrilled. Ashleigh has the most perfect little boy, he is gorgeous, you must be enjoying being 's Jed's grandparents so much. Might see you at Needlework one Tuesday night in the near future. Time to catch up with everyone. xo
