The Rest of June


The last part of June brought Lessa Siegele to Bell all the way from Adelaide via Brisbane (and Inala after I missed an exit on the chook’s breakfast that used to be the Ipswich motorway!).

She’s a wonderful tutor and we had a class of 20 learning her Mariner’s Compass techniques over two days on June 20 and 21.


The weekend didn’t start too well……I tried a new recipe from my friend Julie….her no-fail Lemon Syrup Cake that’s to die for…..it didn’t come close to fitting in the tin….picture below for your amusement!  The shop just filled with smoke……but all was ok in the end.


Lessa brought lots of her beautiful quilts to inspire us…a few pictures to give you an idea…..

“Show and Tell” the next week brought some interesting works in progress…..I’m sorry I no longer remember who owns what, but the pictures tell the story…..

And Ruth’s nifty table runner made with Drunkard’s Path blocks and Four Patches…….
