Sewing Delights of Melbourne

It was positively wonderful to attend Sew it Together last weekend in Melbourne.  Sheridan did a stupendously tremendous job of organising this event and she deserves many thanks (very likely) & a big rest (maybe not so likely after seeing the photo of her mostly sweet one year old!).
Being a not very good blogger my photos are few & far between.  Just this...Jodie's toys above and the blocks I finished for Tanya.  Tanya is one of the Beehive quilters and it was lovely to meet her IRL!

More talking than sewing I think!! Here is the other block I did for her (not at SIT!)

If you would like to see more photos of SIT check out retromummy's blog (see sidebar for link)  Scroll back a bit cos she blogs a lot more than me!  If you look hard you will see me balancing too many bolts of fabric at Amitie..eek.

Melbourne was a lovely place & a great weekend.  A highlight was the drinks at Nikki's studio-big thanks to Nikki for that.  She has lots of great photos in her blog too.

I did get to enjoy some other great spots in Melbourne too including the Skirt & Shirt Markets, a fairtrade market at Victoria Markets, and last but never least a very comfortable part of West Brunswick (!).

Stay tuned for Sew it Together 2011


  1. It was lovely to meet you and actually put a face to the blog name!!

  2. How do you get an invitation? I'd love to go next year, maybe you can put in a good word for me.

    I expect your blogging to get more frequent now that you've had that weekend getting inspired!

    I'm still sewing more clothing than craft but I'm sure I'll get back into it sometime.

    see you soon

  3. Looks like you had a great time in Melbourne- must have been very inspiring! x

  4. Hi there stranger! Yes I have started to quilt today. I am looking forward to seeing what you are going to make with your fabric. You had some beautiful finds there. Wish I could go back and get more! especially your red hounds tooth, would work in nicely with the quilt I am making.
