Home


There are so many things to be grateful for…. NICE SMOOTH ROADS HOME… are just one of them… but the stops between are also fabulous … I last blogged from Tamworth NSW and the next day we took a detour to Nundle… and I must say, the bumpy roads are so worth it…and I got my hands on a bundle of Moda Chocolate by 3 sisters… thank you Kerry Swain from Cottage on the Hill … you have made someone very happy…


 
 


Then it was followed by a pit stop, you all will love…. The Home Patch…I think I just drooled… but only a little bit…I did get another new project…. Of cause….





 
We arrived home on the Wednesday afternoon safely and just in time for me to leave for a retreat starting Friday morning… phew… And from my first Blog I worked on this little beauty… Twelve days of Christmas range of fabric...


 
and can now boast that I have two students… the fun Sarah and funny Sherrie … we have also renamed my “Christmas with Anni” to “Christmas with Robyn” and I’d also like to say that I can do this teaching thing… lol... this is Sarah’s, as you can see she has got a quite bit done…. Sherri will work on hers at home… told you she was funny… lol


 
There was about 14 of us on retreat and we all had a great time eating, sewing and chatting… then they surprised me with this beautiful quilt for my up and coming 50th… how lucky am I and I will treasure it everyday… Thank you everyone for a great weekend…


 
Till next time … thank you for stopping by…and all smiles Robyn…

Blog number four


I have been doing a lot of sewing but have nothing to show it’s all a work in progress… but I have set up the Pfaff embroidery machine and played around with it… This is in the end room minus the bed but with the addition of the desk…for the Pfaff….

 

I did do a teeny tinny bit of quilting to finish this little beauty off designed by Lynette Anderson… its hand quilted around the stars and machine quilted next to the narrow first and third border strips… and I must say this Pfaff machine is a little fancy dancy… but I am like this machine….

 

So, as I don’t have much sewing to show you, I thought I would put up a drawing that I had did some time ago… I do call myself the accidental artist and I will tell the story at a later date… although it was huge surprise to me and still is… many would say I am sort of okay…



This is one of my very first pencil drawings and one of my favourite… it was inspired by the amazing Anne Geddes… My work was completed under the guidance of Sandra Temple in a lesson…a very patient and beautiful person and I know Michelle would agree…

Thank you for coming… all the best and all smiles Robyn.

I was Mary....
