Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

The Quilters of Queensland

Imagine a whole neighbourhood with everyone displaying something different. The variety at EKKA this year was impressive from art to pickles, to fruit cakes and waxed hands - something that could get every single person excited.

The runaway winner for me was the display "The Quilts of Queensland" and here are a select few just to give you an appreciation of the beauty, complexity and sheer hard work that has gone into producing these outstanding quilts. For anyone fired up sufficiently to join this amazing organisation go to www.qldquilters.com. This blog entry is with a dear friend in mind who is about to start her own quilting classes - all the best Laurel !


This is such an Ozzie great - thongs, the ubiquitous footwear here turned into something quite wonderful with some eye popping ice creams to go with the warm weather. 
The sea, the depth, the ocean colours and then all the fish and anemones floating through.

This masterpiece was entirely hand stitched - I could not see a single fault - just perfect.
I took a picture of this last one close up so you can appreciate the work in it. There are some talented quilters in Queensland.

And to end a floral Flutterby
 as it is called with the Iconic Ozzie Surfer. Just brilliant.
