Craft and Quilt Fair Adelaide

HeadFront
The Craft and Quilt Fair is on in Adelaide 5th 6th 7th and 8th November – that is from tomorrow. We are going to have a Vintage Sewing Machine Display like we had last year :-) Lots of Fun. I am also going to be making a baby’s throw quilt for the floor for a  Family member. We live down by the beach so the Quilt is to have a sea/beach theme. No Repro’s in this quilt. It is all cut out and ready to sew. My Friend Rosemary is going to help.                       Rob has a phone interview with ABC Radio at 6.30am tomorrow morning. Just as well he can bounce out of bed and be alive because I certainly could not. Need the big cup of strong coffee before I can do that.

This Lovely Red  Eye 66 Treadle will be part of the display. If you live in Adelaide, make sure you come along and say '”Hello”. I think we are next door to the girls from the Knitters Guild. I am certainly looking forward to seeing all the quilts on display.  Just need to remember to take the camera!CUARMBedWoodworkclosed    HeadRear
On another note can say I have nearly finished B2 of the Civil War Bride Quilt. Am a little slow I know but this quilt is being made from stolen moments of time. Exams are happening in our household in a big way. Both Year 11 and 12 so the tension is high! Those stolen moments are my sanity. Couple of weeks behind on the Nearly Insane quilt too but I just received a delivery of all this luscious fabric from AutumnRoseQuilting. She is wonderful and cuts F8ths and F16ths of full ranges Perfect for  Nearly Insane and the CWBQ. I do shop locally too but these were just too much temptation for me ;-)
           Cheers Lynne

What a gorgeous machine!! Wish I could visit the show and see it in person. A bit too far from Chicago, however!

That machine is a work of art. Beautiful. Thanks for the tip about Autumn Rose quilting.
