Quilting Memories

Hello blogging friends,
Hope all has been well with you.
 I have had a busy enjoyable week with my 3 grandchildren visiting  (the little ones 3-7 yrs.) Just listening to their interaction with each other has been funny with the little sayings and imagination while they play. They are so cute.
Also I had a lovely dinner with some quilting ladies at Cheryll 's  (Gone Stitching ) home.
 I met  fellow quilters Sharyn (Sew Sharyn ) Allison (Cardy Girl ) and Shez (Enjoying Life ) The dinner Cheryll organised was to welcome Shez to our beautiful Lake Macquarie and later to Nundle.  It was just great to be able to chat and meet with these beautiful ladies instead of in the comment section of their blogs. Thank you Cheryll (we followed on the blog and hadn't met till that evening ) for inviting me to your home which just happened to be about 2 Killometeres from where I live at Lake Macquarie!! It was just wonderful.

The happy ladies, Shez, Allison, Sharyn, Cheryll.

I have a quilt to show that all I have to do now for a finish is the binding.

On thinking about this quilt and the time from its beginning to where it is now :
( I also made a quilt for my grandson. A post before this one.)
  These 2 quilts came with me and were being stitched during our travels to some lovely places around Australia. Happy memories come back to me when I see these quilts. I think of the friends who travelled with us and the enjoyable days and evenings we shared and the many wonders Australia has to offer.  My grandson's quilt is with him in Melbourne to keep him feeling close to home and family while studying at University.
A lot of happenings go by while a quilt is made and as you stitch away  it brings a calmness and pleasure, warmth, fun, love and achievement and thoughts of all the paths and journeys during our daily life.

Haveing collected these Aboriginal designed fabrics I am thinking of makeing a wall hanging and just have to decide on the pattern for it.

 Well !! this fabric caught my eye. I don't know what to do with it. I knew I needed it . haha

Stay happy and well.
Till next time.

It was good to catch up with your happenings and I will look forward to seeing what projects you create with the new fabric. My blog seems to have been hijacked so people are able to log on to it - hopefully will be back in blogland soon. Take care.

how great to meet some fellow stitchers. Love the quilt, the softness of the colours you have used really appeal to me. Will be interesting to see what you do with the aboriginal prints and the cars
