As many of you have guessed I am off on a plane with Sarah and Jo to go to AQC for just a couple of days of indulgence… no I wont be buying fabric (thats what I am telling myself) but will be great to catch up with lots of people, chat, learn new things and revisit old ones. And I have a quilt here (hopefully if it arrived safely).


In the meantime as promised here is a pic of Matilda’s little dolly sent by Sharon in NZ courtesy of Cath of QLD.


isn't she just gorgeous?

Also from the mailbox are letters and goodie from

Julie Marchetti, Judy of Banora Point, Noela of Cedar Grove, Vickie of Humpty Doo, Amanda of Cloverdale,Alice from Perth (at present)Suz from Manchester USA, Nancy from St Louis USA, Julie from Mt Waverly, Omajean from Auburn AL USA, and there is another pile including a wonderful fabric postcard from the US – but I have to find her secret hiding spot so I can list them all.

Thankyou so much all of your for writing to Tilly ,she is still excited to go to the Post Box everyday…. wont it be disappointing when they stop?

I shall be back next week with some pics of Melbourne to share, if you are there hunt us down to say hi!

hugs, Helen
