Blocks on their way.

Here are the 4 blocks I made, sorry the photo is not very good. They are on their way to Canada where they will be added to other donated blocks and made into a quilt then donated to someone affected by the Sandy storm in the USA.
Otherwise not much quilting going on here. Busy up until xmas then off to Thames for Xmas & New Year. You all have safe & happy Xmas & New Year.

Wearable Arts

Well it has been a while, work seems to be taking up all my time. However I thought you might be interested to see my GD's Wearable Art out fit she made out of recycled denim skirts & jeans & old ties. I thought this was very creative. Not sure what she called it. She is only 10.

Weather Bomb

Early this morning we had a weather bomb pass through our town. We have been lucky only losing our bean fence and clothes line. But many people in the town have lost the roofs off their homes and lots of trees down.

This tree is in the neighbours it has been blown over and uprooted breaking the fence. Scenes like this are all over town. Thank goodness no one has been hurt.

First flimsy finished this year.

Well the title sounds good. But it has taken me all year to get this flimsy to this stage. It is so big 80" X 100" that I can't quilt it on my machine so I am thinking I will have to send it to a long arm quilter.  I am thrilled to have finish it and really pleased how it has turned out considering some of the ugly fabric that is in it. In the photo it is folded in half as I couldn't find a space big enough. The pattern is from Bonnie Hunters mystery quilt from 2010. Roll Roll Cotton Boll.

Pipiroa Plum Jam

 Happy New Year everyone. My daughter gave me some plums at Christmas so I have been busy to day making plum jam. I was a bit worried it wouldn't set but it looks OK and tastes ok too. I had some on toast with creamed cheese yum.
