CQ News Feb 2011

My how time flies when you are so busy with life! I do hope everyone had a lovely Christmas & New Year and found some quality time with family & friends. We ended up completely missing out on our annual beach holiday due to a very late harvest. All our crops are now off,  however some are quite damaged & not yet sold. Thankfully we HAD some crops to reap unlike others who have lived through floods, fires & cyclones here in Australia. Our hearts go out to everyone that has suffered unbearable losses in recent times. We are truly blessed to be safe & together!

More activity is happening in our family with our eldest  daughter being accepted into University to commence a Bachelor of Design – Visual Communications & starts in only one week. We have to move her to the city & set her up in a house this coming week. My baby is all grown up & spreading her wings! It does not seem very  long ago that  she worked on Constantine Quilts booth interstate at the age of 12.  Her younger sister did her first show last year at the age of 11yrs!

Constantine Quilts is currently participating in Australia’s FIRST Aussie shop hop!
