with a whole heap going on! But it makes the time pass quicker until James is home again so I can't complain. On Thursday night I went to the Canberr Quilters meeting with Mum and was incredibly lucky as Diane Firth was there speaking about her amazing quilting journey. She explained how she finds her inspiration, she is an extremely talented landscape architect and you can she how her professional life has had a tremendous influence on her quilts. I actually got to meet her after the meeting and she helped me identify the type of tree in the new moth quilt (not bad since I only had the quilt with me and one tiny photo of the tree on my phone!) I had the opportunity to get up on the stage and show Soldier On to the ladies there, and talk a little bit about the quilt, which was really emotional but such an amazing feeling.
I received an email yesterday from the lovely lady at Into Craft who was writing an article on the Soldier On quilt to tell me it had been published - you can see the full article here: http://www.intocraft.com.au/2013/04/art-quilt-for-soldiers/ I'm so grateful for any chance to help raise awareness for Soldier On, and I spoke to Jan-maree from Aussie Hero Quilts who said she had already received a few queries after the article was published!
On a totally different note, I had a Thermomix demo last night with my lovely friend Karen. I got to be her guinea pig as I was her first demo, and I bought one as well so I was her first sale too! Really looking forward to getting my hands on it :) http://www.facebook.com/#!/Thermazing?fref=ts
I'm working on finishing the moth quilt in the next few days, I've taken a heap of photos so I'm going to do one long post as a how-to for making moths, hopefully it will be up soon!
