Bush Dancing Anyone?

It's amazing what one finds in crumpled up plastic bags ...
All of these sweet little ladies have been trying to dance in the daylight
Many a netball game and training session has been used to train these girls
Even the odd school excursion to Luna Park .... completed some time ago and abandoned, this is a Sweetwattle Design - I can't find a website for them, but they are located in Wahroonga, Sydney, and they used to advertise frequently in Australian quilt magazines. The design was meant to be done in redwork, but I prefer to use colour and I thoroughly enjoyed stitching these cute designs.
They finally got an audience in my studio ... just for a very brief season ... . where are they now? Back in the plastic bag!


  1. Very sweet quilt and embroidery.

  2. Eep! They're so sweet. Let them out of the plastic bag, I say!

  3. Oh My... totally beautiful... I have a silly question - did you stitch the dancing ladies by hand or with your machine... just Awesome.

  4. Yes Sheila, I stitched the ladies by hand - the machine quilting was done by someone else.

  5. WOW - that is brilliant. Super wonderful! Such gorgeous stitching.

  6. Yes, yes, do leave them out of the plastic bag. They deserve to be seen!
