Mid Winter Quilt Retreat At Eco Inn

Earlier this week I spent one night and part of two days at a quilting retreat with members of our local quilt group. I dont have any photos of quilts that were being worked on but did get these gorgeous images while out for a walk on Wednesday after lunch. The first two images are of our beloved Mount Taranaki which was oh so close to where we were staying. The other photo is of clouds reflected in the nearby lake. I did a little bit of knitting and a little bit of hand work. I didn't take my sewing machine but was happy to just sit and relax and enjoy the company.

Block Lotto Finish And Another Win

I finally finished another block lotto quilt made from the modern clover blocks I won. This was my second win. The border looks very wrinkled in this photo but in real life it is fine. I have just had my fourth win since joining block lotto a couple of years ago. I have all these gorgeous bright wonky stars arriving in the mail at the moment from around the world. Thesae ar two of the blocks that I made. I cant wait for them all to arrive and then start playing with putting them together. However my third lot of blocks - scrappy trips around the world - are also waiting to be put together.
