Scrub Stitch'n Baradine 2021

 Oh my gosh , so long since I've been here. I cant believe I haven't  blogged since January. I thought as you got older you got less busy , I seem to be busier than ever or just slower or something. Early April I went to Baradine quilt retreat with a lot of very lovely ladies. My room mate was Georgina who I have met a few times before so we got on very well and spent time reminiscing. 

I caught up with ladies I have met before and met some new people as well. Always good to add newbies to the quilting family. Donna was her amazing self,  organising us all down to the Nth degree but working so hard to put on a terrific weekend.. Thanks Chooky! What a great job you did.  Thank you Sandy from Shiralee stitches for the lovely EPP kits. and party favours.  It seems so long ago now and how I miss getting together with these ladies and my friend Chooky.

Australia Day 2021


Australia Day is often celebrated with barbecue,a beer, a bit of cricket and a swim so here my family combined all three. Temporary swimming pool, what the ??? Yes in the back of his ute.... crazy son....The kids loved it of course! Sun safe, the quick shade over the ute parked at the park where they played cricket and had a barbecue . Te park was only three houses down from theirs and the water was used on the lawn so no waste. 


 
Love playing together at Macdonald's playground.


His favourite breakfast always at Oodies a lovely eclectic coffee shop .

Her favourite Chocolate milk. 

Better Late Than Never

 Today I got to finishing the flimsy for a couple of Christmas wall hangings. I've only ad them on my sewing table since  October  Shhh....They are so simple , why did they sit there so long?  I have also been working on my EPP project so I am achieving a little at a time. Co Vid is finally cooling it's heels a little and we have a couple of good weekends coming up. We visited the grand kids on the weekend , they are growing up all too fast.  Hope this finds all my blog friends happy and well. 



Love this print , I love the sparkle especially at Christmas.

Getting back into my sewing room.

 Today I have finished this quilt from "Laundry Basket Quilts". I bought this kit in 2017 when we went to USA for a friends wedding.  love the use of traditional and batik fabrics. 

I' m also trying to get some more of my Lucy Boston quilt done. It is very slow progress.

I have finally managed to get into my sewing room and I have finished a Christmas stitchery it's a  Rosalie Decker pattern that I have had for a while.  I love the circular shape of this one so I have made it into a table topper.  Oh and it is centered even though it doesn't look like it in the photos.

These beauties are well and truly in flower now its spring. They are everywhere in our little town making the birds and bees very happy. The common name is" bottle brush" or Callistemon
