weekend troubles

The weekend was spent trying to finish one of my quilts for the WRAP exhibition ( see link for more on that) and my machine played up no end. I will have to reback it as it's a real mess. Further woe when I rinsed an embroidery and the over dyed threads ran. So I washed in a run removal product and lost most of the colour in the embroidery... will try and over sew with more colour... but if that's the worst that can happen I guess I can count my blessings.

Much excitement as K turns 18 on 28th... she can't wait tot get to the clubs!

Cone flower

My current wall paper - this is a flower from Northern America but the photo was taken at Coffs Harbour Botanical Gardens in March this year. There has to be a quilt in this one ... it has a wonderful spiky head. A few more photos of the gardens can be found here
