More from the Creative Women Workshop

Tonight I've been packing to go to Melbourne tomorrow. I will be working till lunchtime then driving to Launceston to catch the plane. It's about a 90 minute drive but worth it when you can fly for $30. Jetstar had a 1c sale for one hour last night. Unbelievable - the snag was you could only take cabin luggage. (Okay for a day trip I guess, but not much use for a longer stay. I couldn't get onto the website anyway.)

As I won't be home again until Sunday night I thought I'd show a few more pics from the Creative Women Workshop. Anne Ida flies home to Norway tomorrow night. Here she is with the stitchery she worked on for Rose's table runner.

This is a little tin I got on sale at Spotlight recently. It was just the right size to carry my scissors, cutter, threads, etc.

Natalie and Gail seem to be enjoying themselves.

Some pattern samples from Cinderberry Stitches. I love the fabrics in this bag - Chocolate from Moda, I think.

Samples from Rosalie Quinlan Designs and Melly and Me.

Isn't this elephant adorable?

This is the Family Values quilt designed by Rose from Threadbare Creations. Definitely on my list of projects to make sometime.

You can see some of the blocks from the quilt more clearly in this cushion.

Rose is also teaching her sampler quilt on Saturdays at The Country Quilter.

It was so exciting to be able to see close up designs featured in magazines and on blogs. That will have to do for tonight as I'm nearly falling asleep. On Friday I'm going to the Quilt Show and Shopping Expo at the Australasian Quilt Convention, so hopefully there will be something inspiring to show next week.

PS. Don't tell my sister, but tonight I booked us 2 tickets for Shout! this Friday night. A very early birthday present.
