I got to see my mum's progress on her la passacaglia quilt. She's using floral fabrics, so her's will look quite different to mine. These rosettes remind me of the old cups and saucers that people used to use for afternoon tea! Mum has a fair few of those in her china cabinet.
We laid my rosettes out next to mum's to imagine we had a whole quilt. Although our styles are quite different, it was nice to see how much of the floor we could cover.
Tomorrow we're all off to Melbourne for a family holiday. I know it will be cold there too, but we wanted somewhere relatively close that the kids haven't been to before. I've been there quite a few times for work, because the company I worked for had their head office in St Kilda Road.
I've got a list of quilt shops to visit and instructions on how to get to them. The males in the family want to go to the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) so they can do that too. I want to go to Melbourne Park, the Tennis Centre. The major highlight for them will be going to see Real Madrid play football (soccer) on Saturday night at the MCG.
Yesterday I sorted out what I'll work on while we're away. I pulled out this lovely Laura J Perin design that I've had for ages. I've now finally got all the right threads, so I will take it with me.
I had to make a little start last night just to be sure I understood the directions. It's going to be lovely.
So, please forgive me if I don't get back to you over the next week. Access to the internet will be very limited while we are away. See you next week.
