4 places left for Berry retreat

It's not too late to join me for the Berry retreat fri 5th - sun 8th Sept.
there are just 4 places left.

See photos of the projects I'll be teaching on this blog - Chrysalis and Fallen Petals are on the post dated 20th July and back a bit further on the post for 17th nov 2012 you'll find a photo of Blue Gum Creek.

All of these small wall hangings are easier than they look. My technique for raw edge appliqué is easy to master and gives a great result.

Give me a call for more details 9654 9463 or e.mail me
Or contact Berry Patchwork and talk to Elizabeth about booking in for this great weekend

Kununurra, crocodiles and rum cake

I taught on a quilting cruise earlier this year and met Su from Kununurra.
Su invited me to go to Kununurra to teach a workshop to her group and I took the opportunity to go there during the cool season a few weeks ago.
What a great town, such a good sense of community there and what a lovely group of quilters, they looked after me so well. Kununurra is very close to the Kimberley and right on the Ord River. I took an extra day to do the tourist thing and took a trip along the Ord River, my first encounter with crocodiles in the wild. It was just much wild life and stunning scenery - must go back there for a longer visit.
The rum cake was delicious, sorry no recipe - it's a secret family recipe.
Sorry no photos of the quilting group, having problems loading it. Will try again tomorrow.
