With South Africa hosting the Soccer World Cup I had no problem in deciding what to do with my June block and with it being such an historical event it even overshadowed our lovely week at the coast. Hoping to get my July block done soon as I already know what I want to appliqué on it.

Major fun and apart from me, who spent most of my time unpicking the rest all got plenty work done. Unfortunately we did not just work and clean but spent way too much time (not to mention money) shopping but with our GPS not being updated recently we got to see rather interesting parts of all the towns we visited (obviously the older and therefore bad parts). Not that we felt threatened in any way, we shopped as very few can!
As referred to in an earlier post I guided the Golden Threads quilting group through making a free-motion sampler starting in February this year. We’ve visited Leah Day’s website for inspiration and tried most of her patterns on our samplers. Some of the ladies have finished and one by one they now bring their completed quilts to their group meeting to show. Here are 2 of these completed quilts and I think they’ve conquered their fear of this technique successfully.
