Pincushion and Sydney Quilt Show

Today I have another pincushion to share and this is where my needle and thread are planted today .... I made this for a sewing retreat a few years ago and it is yet another favourite of mine !!



Whilst at the Quilt Show I came across a lovely stall which was selling cross stitch Christmas decorations hand crafted by women in Indonesia ....... Sew Exquisite was the name of the stall and I purchased a few which were just lovely ....





The name of the lady who handcrafted them was on the card on the back of the packet and I thought it was a lovely idea, even though I could easily stitch them myself, I think it is a great idea to support a cause providing employment and training in less fortunate communities.


This beautiful hexagon quilt was another favourite at the Quilt Show .... exquisitely made by Pauline Yianakis .....


Helen Granleese made this wonderful version of Lucy Boston .....



And another special quilt was this one by Lorena Uriarte called Winding Ways ..... I just love the splash of orange !!!!



I was so inspired at the Quilt Show to get a move on with some of my quilts so have come home and got stuck into my blocks for "Where We Love is Home" by Anni Downs .....
