Close up of colours and fabrics in Summer Geese Quilt

  • I celebrated my birthday with a cheats birthday cake - supermarket sponge and strawberries, still tasted good though.
  • some lovely wool felt from my sister, that just happens to co-ordinate perfectly with some of my Liberty.  (can you tell I am just dying to make something with this fabric)
  • a day out at the Auckland Festival of Quilts with Rachel and Deb.  Some amazing quilts, these were a few that caught my eye.  We also met up with some other blog and flickr friends, from Wellington and Christchurch,
  • a little stash enhancement from the festival
  • some sewing for the SSM6 swap.
  • I smile everytime I see this
Hoping you all had a fabulous weekend too.
