My New Hobby

Please excuse my lack of posts but I've been pretty busy the last couple of weeks doing all sorts of interesting things.

Not the least of them being taking up a beginners course in quilting at a local shop here in Pascoe Vale. And so I am now learning all about quilting. I did a bit of patchwork when I was young and living at home and recently made a bed cover which I did a post about. Then when i was doing some training at Red Cross recently a lady I know had the cutest little patchwork bag. She told me someone in her quilting group had made it for her  and we got talking. Consequently I had a bug! Started looking around and found a small business nearby called Patchworks Unlimited and I've got to say visiting that shop....I was like a kid in a candy store!
so I have enrolled in a beginners class and am now officially learning how to make my first real quilt.  Its called a harmony quilt, and i'm making it in modern designs and colours for my sons room. its a challenge and a new skill and i'm loving it.

Will keep you posted about how I go and post photos of the progress.
