New memories and old friends

These have been my two last full days in Sydney, so I've packed in a lot of last minute memories: visit to the Archibald Prize; ferry trip to Manly ; walk over to Shelly Beach and up the headland; views of Wednesday afternoon sailing, including AUS21 in full flight, on the way back; iced coffee at the Opera Bar

My sister also made last night incredibly special with front row tickets to Strictly Ballroom, the musical.  Outrageous , over the top and fantastic fun.

I'm packing up soon, but just time to get a few photos of quilts that I made before I started blogging.

Panel and border by Laurel Burch.

Australian charm pack

I can't remember the name of this block, but it was good to be reminded of what an effective quilt this makes.


  1. What an action packed couple of days and what lovely looking quilts too!

  2. Just read the cast list ( SB The Musical) and it all came flooding back!!!

    We've had summer here in Blighty while you've been away. Hopefully it will still be here when you get back.

  3. Wow , you've been busy! Lovely to see these quilts, I zoomed in on the charm pack one , I don't think I've used any if those charms, although there is a red snd white one top right corner that looks familiar, did you give me some in blue & white?


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
