my amazing students

I had to share with you some of the fabulous morsels my students created for their cup cake design assignment.........

They put a great deal of thought and imagination into their work, and produced their own photographs. I am incredibly proud of their efforts. What do you think?

(By the way, if you want the answers to the sushi quiz, the students' work is pictures 1 and 3 - did you guess correctly?)

Spring Blooms Quilt in progress..

This is my offering for the quilt swap. It seems a little strange, depicting spring here when the weather is coming straight off the Antarctic, but I am certainly enjoying the process. I still need to complete the stamens, back, quilt and bind it, so I had better hurry!

I love this block - it was originally from Dianne Johnston's "Happiness Is" pattern.

I adapted the original quilt pattern, making it smaller and rearranging it into a large wall hanging. I used my hand dyed fabrics and Steven and I designed the hot air balloon block to accomodate the kids. (If you look closely at them in the basket, you'll realise that I made this quilt quite a few years ago!)

We also personalised it - the name on the bottle of wine is denoting a stunning spot in Tasmania, where we met in 1981.

Where did you meet the special person in your life?
