"Anne's Garden" made it safely to Sydney and now resides on my sister-in-law's bed. "Sunburnt Country" (the retreat quilt top depicted 2 posts ago) is now quilted (on my home machine) and proudly owned by my husband.
A friend in Tasmania (she & hubby own Foxhunters Return--a B&B and now bookstore too) is having twins so I finished a long-in-progress baby quilt (called "Queensland Dreaming") and a more recent project making felt baby booties.
I also had the opportunity to teach a very capable professor friend to hem pants. Funny how the little skills can drop by the wayside while acquiring the big ones.
So now nothing is under deadline and I can decide what I'd like to do next. Saturday I'm off to yet another needle-turn class (I'd like to be really good at it one day!).
