Sue Ross Workshop.

The past two days have been somewhat of a revelation for me... I have officially entered the world of Sue Ross... that's Sue in the photo with one of her many quilts "Blazing Stars" need I say I now no longer look @ a bolt of fabric in the same light ??? A Workshop with Sue introduces you to a world of Contempory meets Tradition in the best possible of ways... Oh... &&& I am hand piecing...mind you that requires a tad bit more practice as yet. If you have taken the opportunity to subscribe to Down Under Quilts free for 6 months... @ this Link you will be able to read more about Sue's Quilting Journey in Issue # 133 { that's the issue with the really cool crocheted edge Quilt on the cover } and see some of her wonderful quilts... &&& you should see what Sue is working on @ present !!! One block has 101 pieces alone & looks totally stunning in two different colourways... can see I will be a regular attendee @ Sue's Workshops every 2 months in Toowoomba as I have truly fallen in love with just Soooo... many of Sue's designs... maybe I should get another job too just for my materials... one of course needs to be supportive of such addictions !!! Lol...

Trying to be really good and go for a walk each day just a tad tricky in the Winter so I find !!! But just this week one of my friends sent me an Email with a 92yr old lady's lessons in life... One in particular resonated with me in every way !!!

" No matter how you feel... Get Up, Dress Up &&& Show Up !!! "

So from the mouth of Babe's I sure can take a hint... Lol

But also urging me out of my Oh So Cosy bed is the tantalising Sunrise's of late just thought I would share...
