Quilt Workshop

9 04 2007

I’m off to a quilting workshop this coming weekend. I haven’t done any quilting in ages so it will be nice to do some with a group of like-minded people. It’s local too, so I don’t need to travel more than 5 minutes to get there – very handy in case I forget to take something and need to dash home!

A lady from Perth is coming down and we’re making a “Mayflower” quilt – see under Quilts and Bags on her website (http://www.raggedystitches.com/), page 2. I’ve usually done my own designs, so I don’t know how I’ll go with this… And it’s got flowers!!! Those who know me well, know that I’m not into lace and frills and flowers (unless the flowers are in a garden or a photo).

So I think I’ll make the quilt and leave the flowers till last. Maybe I won’t put them on, or just put them on loosely so I can remove them later. I’ve picked out my fabrics – lots of deep maroons and greens and creams. And no florals!!

Our local butcher, Greg (Bridgetown Meat Supply, near IGA), makes these delicious minced lamb patties with cheese and mustard. I flatten them out into burgers and cook them up with a slew of onions and fresh chilli if I have it – I cook them so it’s like they’re BBQ’ed – then slap them inside a really crusty bread roll with a good smear of a yellow mustard seed and chilli spread, a slice of cheese, thinly sliced tomatoes, cucumber, and lettuce. Yummy!
