Heatwave coming !!

Hello everyone,
I miss being on here more often but have family duties as a carer lately to my brother. It is very time consuming and worrying at times, but that is what family is for when help is needed.
Life is full of surprises.
I have had a few projects on the go and have been sewing the blocks for my 5yr old Grandaughter's quilt and only have 2 borders to add and the top will be finished. I would like to quilt and bind it before Christmas. I will show it next post. It is really pretty.
Today I can showcase a beautiful quilt that Lee from my sewing group has finished. Lee is our leader and teaches us the tricks of the trade.

 Lee has sewed some lovely applique and embroideries making her quilt absolutely adorable .

Her skills and experience show in this beautiful quilt.

Another class group like our group, is led by Lee and everyone from the that class has made a block for this beautiful quilt and tickets are for sale and the money made will be donated to charity.  The quilt tickets usually bring in one to two thousand dollars .

This charity quilt is gorgeous and very impressive with the talent and skill by the quilting ladies.
Love this cross stitch.

My class group have a charity quilt nearly finished, waiting to be quilted and should be ready early in the New Year for selling the tickets.
Something has been wrong with Blogger this week and I couldn't upload my photos to the blog post for 5 days. Usually Blogger sees to these problems as quick as they can and all is fixed today.
We are waiting for a heat wave with some places heating up .
Western Australia had a very hot one with a 41C  . Also had bush fires with 4 people losing their life. Very sad.
On the East coast for me we are expecting high 30'sC . Our nation is very dry right now and it is still Spring!!!
Bye for now .
Happy sewing.

Happy Halloween to those who Celebrate .

Hello Everybody,
Calling in to say hello to you all ,I have missed seeing what is happening on here due to the fact that I have been away for a few weeks travelling with our caravan up the north coast taking with me some craft to pass the time and enjoying the getaway. The internet was not very good and used my usage so only did the emails this time.
This is where I find my inspiration on here so I am looking at every ones treasures and creations, and all the new projects that have been posted.
I really want to be sitting at my Janome so !!
. I am pretending that my  ironing basket is not full of  washing from being away. Oh well!!

Happy Halloween !!
28 neighbourhood children visited for Trick or Treat this late afternoon.  It  was good seeing them call in having some fun.

In our Caravan while away I did manage to put together some blocks for Elsie's quilt .My 5 yr old granddaughter. Not a lot of space in our van. I have half of he blocks finished and have  chosen  fabric for the borders . I am aiming  at  Christmas for a finish.
I also did some work on a cross stitch which I haven't tried to sew before and really enjoyed my time on it.

Helen from sewing is making this happy bright quilt for a little person.

Thank you for calling in.
