McLeod Ganj - Rob shave

McLeod Ganj - Rob shave, originally uploaded by tassyrob.

#2 Son Rob is travelling in India. He's been in Leh and is now in McLeod Ganj, Dharamsla which is the Indian home of the Dali Lama.

Here he is having a shave

Oh dear!! But then I have been to India, which helps me picture it - a bit!

Smithton Wallhanging for Emerton Park

Last weekend I went to Smithton, a rural community on the far north west coast of Tasmania for the quilting exhibition.

The start attraction was the 3 piece wall hanging the group had made for the local aged care facility - wonderful!!!

Scatterdays - Food

I knew I'd be able to find at least one image for this month while I was away the last few days. Whenever I go to Smithton I get at least one beautiful, sumptuous cream sponge made for me by Genavene Thorpe, country quilter and cook extra-ordinaire!
You don't see these much now - the butterfly cream filled sponge with jelly and cream on top, do you?
It tasted wonderful too - I had 3 pieces. This was Sunday's ... I won't mention Thursday night or Friday's left-overs I had to clear up, will I?

My Designs

Because I have just received a query about whether I wholesale or not, it made me realise that there are many quilts that have not been recorded on this site.

Amish Clothes Line - quilts are 5"

Michale's Menagerie - a simple design to use that special fabric.

The Picanniny Quilt - single bed 8" blocks.

There is also a wall-hanging pattern with 6" blocks and patched border

Heavenly Hoffmans - a very large quilt using the wonderful florals that Hoffmans "used" to do.

There is also a pattern using same design and "I Spy" fabrics with bright tone-on-tones for stars.

Appropriately called Heavenly I Spy

Bright Medallion designed as a round robin for a Quilt Shop Hop

I Spy Stars - easy pieced stars, plain points with I Spy centres.

Love Bugz - lovely chubby hearts with I Spy fabrics, solid fabrics for backgrounds

This is all you need!

Now I know why I love giving quilts to my loved ones!

Here is the Divine Miss M. closely checking out the quilting on "The Corn Is As High As An Elephant's Eye". This one is for when she gets into a cot! (3 months old)

Banjo is getting to the age when he is recognising "identities" like Bob the Builder who is on a small patch in his quilt. Gathering up lots and lots of I Spy fabrics for this quilt is all worthwhile!
Here he is ready for his night time story with Nana's radio, a wonderful toy, especially at 6.30 in the morning. (2 years old)
