We made it safely to Australia. Just a little frustrating as I have had trouble getting my computer charged. My dear friend Sarah Fielke picked Melissa and I up from the airport on Tuesday morning. We relaxed for a couple of hours and then headed to the Sydney Harbor with her husband Damien for a wonderful lunch and great Australian wine. This was our view from our table. Could not get better than this!
I have a good friend Judy who teaches a lot of my quilt patterns in Australia. She was teaching at Cottage Quilt Works in Sydney on Tuesday so we were invited for tea.
It was really fun to met everyone and see the wonderful quilts they were all making. I just love that each student took the liberty to personalize there quilts with images that are special to them.
On Wednesday Sarah was having here quilts photographed for her new book. We went to Whale Beach where they have a wonderful family home on the beach. It was a great setting for all her quilts.
Here is a sneak preview of her new book. I could not give it all away but just a few to wet your appetite. I am very excited to get a copy for myself.
We are off to see my friend Robyn so will post about my first class at Killara Quilts later today.
