Foto Finish - Photographers Choice

 


For this week I have gone back to the fabulous holiday we recently had with my sister in Bali.

We have both ended up having surgery on legs this week. I have had an ACL reconstruction and partial meniscus repair in my knee. This is a result of an old netball injury which I recently reinjured. My sister works in aged care in Perth, Western Australia. On Tuesday they were having wheelchair races pushing their clients as part of Melbourne Cup day (a big horse race that is closely followed each year in both Australia and New Zealand). One of the other participants ran into the back of my sister and sliced her leg open -damaging a tendon in her foot. We are so far apart - I wish I could go and look after her but that is not to be.

Back to my photo -I really love how water lillies glow when they are photographed.

That is a gorgous shot, Maree. Hope you're doing well after your surgery and that both you and your sister are on the mend.

QUILTY 365

This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to http://quiltyfolk.blogspot.co.nz/2016/01/january-quilty-365-linkup.html
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project. 

Light Up Your Landscape - Gloria Loughman Class

A couple of weeks ago I took part in my first ever quilt class.  It was run by Gloria Loughman http://www.glorialoughman.com/
I thoroughly enjoyed the class and am delighted with what I have produced.  I am not going to bind it but rather put facings on the back as Gloria taught us.  This was the first time I had used a walking foot.
There were 20 in the class and we all produced very different pieces.  I am noe keen to get her books and try some of her other methods of constructing quilts.
