Quote of the Week:

Quilting is a gift you give yourself . . .

Just look at this magical photo of our very own Mt Wellington here in Hobart. This sight has greeted us for the past few days - not as much snow today, but still beautiful, surrounded by a brilliant blue sky - can't get any better than that . . .

'Madness' here at Crow Central one would have to say this past week. We have been pretending that we were back in our Kindergarten days and spent a fun couple of hours cutting and pasting our folders which will hold the patterns for those attending our Christmas Gathering on the 20th September. It's soooo much fun getting everything ready . .

We are now booked out for the Gathering but are still putting interested people on a waiting list 'just in case' we happen to get a cancellation at the last minute. So keep those fingers crossed those of you who are on the list . . . we know it is a disappointment to be one of those missing out but we can only fit a certain number into the hall and hope that you understand. Be sure to be one of the first for our next Gathering in April next year!!

Australia's next top model look out - here is the gorgeous Deirdre doing her thing on the catwalk with her two designs for the Gathering - two warm and snuggly scarves made from 100% felted wool, one with appliqued snowmen and pockets and the other with flowers, reverse applique and needle felting - how could you resist either of them!! And doesn't she just make the perfect model !!

We're off to buy the 'sweeties' for the goody bags - I think we eat more than we pack but that's ok - we need to keep the sugar levels up - it's very important you know.
Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment on our blog - it much appreciated . . . we enjoy reading them . . keep them coming.

Until next time,

Leonie & Deirdre
The Quilted Crow

I could give my own opinion with your topic that is not boring for me.

I'm so sad I've missed out on a place at the upcoming Gathering.
I'll just have to be quick for the next one.
It was nice talking to you last week Deirdre, and thanks for letting me take some photos and post them to my blog. They were well received.
I can't wait to find a chance to pop back into the shop soon and treat myself.
