Summer School

On Saturday I headed off bright and early to Melbourne to attend Summer School - a day organised by Karen from Mrs Martins Quilt Shop in conjunction with Max and Louise Pattern Company. What a day I had with lots of inspiration and great company -
Two of the beautiful designs we received patterns for on the day. Loved the table runner in the centre.
Some more gorgeous Max and Louise inspiration.
This is the pattern I chose to work on on the day.  It is nowhere up to this stage, but should be able to show you some progress soon. Karen from Mrs Martins had made me up a beautiful kit in reds and mustards.  I did get my little pointed star flowers paper pieced on the day.
 
Lovely Simone and Lorraine were on our table - here they are with Lisa, one of our tutors.
And my gorgeous friend Maria had bought me this delicious homemade everything lunch. Boy was I full, but it was amazing especially the potato pie.
And what a bonus having Barb from Theodora Cleave there with her gorgeous handmade/painted buttons. Of course I had to add her two new snowmen buttons to my collection. 
I "borrowed" these lovely photos from Mel's blog www.thehouseonthesideofthehill.blogspot.com but I did warn her that I might as she took lots more photos than I did and was my lovely sewing companion on the day.  Barb has lots more lovely photos on her blog too www.theodoracleave.blogspot.com.  Cheryl
