Blogging Anniversary coming up for me.

Hello everyone,
Hope you all are happy and well.
In 2  days time  I have had my Blogger account since 2008 .I started my first blog post a little later. I had a lot to learn but loved it . I can remember my very first comments from Radka,Connie,and Francis.Who's blogs are amazing. They were a lot of help to me.
I appreciate all your comments and kind words giving me encouragement and helping me along my way. ūüíõ
I have come to know you all as close friends.I think we all share a bond by connecting with our craft.
I'ts been my pleasure to get to know you all through the blogging world.

Finally I am catching up with the backlog of  ufo's, quilts ,embroidery, knitting projects and some cross stitch after this last year when all these things came to a stand still .So I have them moving again which is a good feeling.

This is my finished big quilt getting raffled for charity.

 Finished this single bed  child's quilt , for a dear little girl 3 year old. The colours are not showing very well. It is really pretty.
On the clothes line.

My grandson Korbyn bringing his lizard for a visit.

I am very excited because soon I will be getting a little female  puppy like this one .A Silky Terrier. mine is only 3 weeks old now and in around 5 weeks should be ready for me to collect .
 Our Spring is nearly finished and we are already getting very hot days .In New South Wales  90 fires are being attended to . It has been very dry in Australia and the centre already has days of  40C plus and here on the coast Saturday  was 33C. So thinking very hot weather coming this Summer.

Happy Quilting.

Hello Everyone,
Hope you are all happy and well .
I have been to two quilt shows in a week seeing lots of fabulous quilts being showcased. So inspiring to be amongst so many wonderful quilts  leaving me all motivated to keep my projects moving.
My progress is going well and I am catching up on the backlog of sewing I found myself with. So I am happy about that.

This quilt is sandwiched and I hope to get some quilting started tomorrow.

Here are some of the fabulous quilts that were on show..

Lots of lovely quilts are nearly finished by my sewing group ladies showing their artistic talents too.
We are still getting cool days but soon our winter will be over and some lovely warm sunshine will be here.
 Happy sewing week.

The months are going so fast.

Hello everybody,
Hope everyone has been happy and well while I have been absent.
Well I have finally found more opportunities to be back in my women cave and catching up on my back log  of  sewing  projects that have been laying idle  for a while. I am happy as long as there is a new project on the horizon.
At the moment I have 2 quilts on the go for 2 dear little girls ,Mia and Amiria.  I can show a sneak peak on the progress of Amiria's.

 I have a helper on the cutting table.

Val from quilting class has the centre piece finished of her quilt and it is very pretty and delicate.I am sure the finished quilt will  reveal lovely fabric shades and will be gorgeous.

Also from our weekly quilting group Sondra has finished another child's quilt to send to the Women's Refuge for the children having to stay there. These quilts are very needed.

Some photos from Thredbo .Australia's snow fields.


I had a lovely holiday with my family, daughter,son inlaw, 5 older teens,  grandies. Lots of snow dumping and we all had a fabulous time. I loved my walks in the snow.
Our winter days will soon be over and it will be lovely to see sunny warm  days again.
Happy sewing.

Different paths to travel now.

Hello Everyone,
I have some lovely quilts to showcase ,my quilting  friends have been busy .
Their enthusiasm is certainly catching. When  seeing their fabulous quilts each week is so inspiring.

 These next 3 quilts are so different and Di who made these is so very talented and creative with her  quilting.

This quilt is hand sewn.

This next quilt has a impressive border hand sewn. My camera doesn't show how beautiful the rich colouring is of this fabric .Lee has made this quilt to  showcase  the beautiful fabric.

Winter is upon us here in Australia and I will be heading to the snow fields in 2 weeks which I am looking forward to spending some time at Thredbo Village. I will be taking my hand sewing to sit by the open fire watching the snow fall and enjoy some walks in the snow.
I have some near finishes which I hope to get some bindings on .
Also will  knit some beanie hats for my grandson to take to Lihi in the remote areas of the Himalaya Mountains, Nepal, where he will be trekking with the charity group for building schools and other educational supplies to the little children in November 2017.

Thredbo Village.

On the road to Thredbo. I am going with my family , My big boys and girl (late teens)  5 grandchildren and their mum and dad, all skiers and snow boarders. Not me I can assure you !!
Thank you for calling into  my blog.xx
Happy sewing week..
