Tapestry and catching up

I am making my third jelly roll sampler quilt, I love how quickly and easily these pretty blocks come together into a quilt with just one jelly roll + some border fabric.  I am using the Tapestry jelly roll that I won at the quilting retreat earlier this year. Here is the 6th block that I worked on this afternoon.  My friend Fiona is also making this quilt, you can see her progress HERE

So I am the half way mark, how lovely do they all look together. I have sorted and bagged the strips into blocks, and am pulling them out to do in random order so this is not technically the first 6 blocks in the pattern.

I also have my internet back YAY, so now I can show you a few catch up pictures from my recent trip to Queensland ( as I took them with my camera so could not upload them with the Ipad. )

The purpose of the trip was to attend AREC, which was a national real estate conference, but DH and I extended for a couple of days and spent one of those days at Movie world.
Firstly I was very brave at Movie world to go on this ride.

DH just had to have his picture taken with this superwoman. We bought all of the Grandies super man, bat man and wonder woman capes, so now we have super Grandies.

I took a liking to these signs in one of the coffee shops.  Don’t you think they would make lovely stitchery's.  ( There is a plan in my head for this).

This photo is the back of one of the stalls, I find it funny as whenever we go to the movies DH always gets a frozen coke and popcorn.  I also like the vintage look of it. quite retro.

Well that’s me up to date, so its back to some more hand stitching tonight of block 1 of a Little bit country tonight, there is certainly a lot of stitchery on this block.
