Charity Donation

Each year the Sunflower Foundation holds a big fundraising event.  This year it is a Black Tie Fantasy Ball at Wattle Tree Chalet Melbourne May 17th
The Sunflower Foundation supports disadvantaged girls in Australia and Overseas to help them get an education. This web page will give you all the details if you would like to attend.

This wall hanging is a design by Miriam Gogarty of Ireland so it is not an original idea of mine.

The sunflowers are made from cotton fabric with multiple layers of organza with beaded centres.

I'm back

It is months since I last blogged.  Many of those months I have not quilted at all.  We moved and will all the unpacking, rearranging and finding places for all our things in a smaller area, was a little stressful.  All settled now thank goodness.
In March our granddaughter Chloe turned 13 and I promised her a big girls quilt for her birthday, I still have the binding to stitch down this weekend for her and Chloe loves it.  The quilt is 80 x 80inches so it should last her quite a few years.  Chloe still uses the quilt I made for her when she went into a single bed, that had little fairies on it.  This one I think is very eye catching.  The lady who took the photo said it would look better with grandma in it.
