Here in Oz we refer to the Tasman Sea that separates Australia and New Zealand as "the Ditch". It is a term of endearment. A while ago you may remember me telling you about a lovely lady by the name of Pauline from across 'the ditch' who owns a gorgeous patchwork shop called "The Quilted Gumboot" at no. 6 Tui Street in Taihape in New Zealand. Well Pauline had bought some patterns from me and included "Christmas Bakeshop" for her stitching group to do. This morning I received a lovely email from Pauline with a photo of some of her ladies with their 'Bakeshop' quilts. I was so thrilled and excited to see them and they have done such a gorgeous job of their quilts that I just had to share the pic with you. Well done girls!!! Thanks for sharing your photo. I love it.
For me on the sewing front I am still quilting "Country Garden" and still enjoying it. I am now on block 9 the last one so it will be the border soon.
Lastly I would like to say I hope all those wonderful Dads out there enjoyed their special day and I would like to leave you with a gorgeous image my daughter created which I think sums it up.
I hope your week is full of wonderful things and you find a little (or a lot) stitching time.
Blessings Michelle xxx
