January 2015...already?

After a busy holiday season the sisters are back sewing.  In January we have had sewing days at Di's and Clare's.  As you can see, it was heads down and fingers busy with lots of paper piecing of hexagons and stars.

Deb brought along the completed centre of her newest project, a reproduction of a quilt from a photo in an old QNL by Jenni Cleland.  She was working on the first border both days but not a lot to see just yet.

Di has completed the centre of a new quilt and was busy paper piecing for the next border.  This is absolutely stunning and the broderie perse, ooh la la!

Kerry looks to be in a finishing mode, Mrs Williams was out and the next row of blocks being pieced.  She is almost there.

I have started a new quilt.  A finished appliqué and broderie perse centre for a cot quilt I have been asked to make for a special friend of the family.  I intend to complete this with rows of variable stars set on point.

And while we were sewing, look who visited!  A beautiful King parrot looking for a feed...

Until next time,
