Well we are barely over the excitement of last weekends Applique School and now here we are getting ready for this weekends meeting of the Castlemaine Appliqué School, so it promises to be another fantastic weekend.
Saturdays meeting will be all about Michell Yeo, it will be a celebration of the release of Michelle's new book, "Of Needle, Thimble and Thread" and all of Michelle's fellow CAG members will be there to help her celebrate....Michelle is our guest speaker on Saturday and will also be on hand to sign copies of her book for all of us that have already snapped up a copy.
Michelle will take time out from the CAG meeting, to be in the shop between 2.00 and 3.00 to sign copies of her book for anyone that would like to come along.
This will be the last meeting of CAG before our quilt show in March, so as you can imagine there will be lots of excitement, lots of chit chat and lots of last minute planning.
Now don't laugh....as if anyone could have missed our constant reminders about the quilt show on March 15th & 16th...but here is just one more reminder, if you haven't saved the date yet well get your diary out right now and pencil it in, because you won't want to miss all the fun of the quilt show.
Thank you so much to Jo for today's "Show and Tell"....this photo really doesn't do this increadable quilt the justice it deserves...there is so much detail in all of these tiny little birds...all sorts of amazing embroidery and embellishments.
Jo made this quilt as a block of the month from Sue Spargo...If love Sue Spargo's style then you will love her book, "Contempory Folk...full of quilts and small projects and lots of gorgeous little birdies.
Good grief, more gorgeous fabric today...another stunning floral and a brilliant border print..."Northgate Manor" from Maywood Studio....you will just be itching to get your scissors into these great prints.
And two divine toiles...this gorgeous blue bird toile, "Garden of Enchantment" from Maywood Studio
And even more birds...
We have had this truly stunning red bird toile, "Jolie", by Anna Griffin, a few months ago and it sold out in the click of a finger, so we were very happy to get some more....ooooohh, they are both so nice.
Poor Sammy has spent the whole week up to his curly ears in fabric as we packed up the Block of the Month parcels. They have all been sent out now so Sammy will just have time for a quick Friday snooze before it is time to great all his CAG friends.
