Stitchery Block Monthly Swap

I have finish the top for this quilt. I am yet to back & bind it but I thought I would share it with you. The top right 2 blocks are test block I made so mine ended up being 4 block by 4 blocks, as a mystery person must have sent me two blocks.

As soon as the fire ban lifts then I am burning the "squaredance" pattern, and I'll post pictures here so we can all enjoy it.

I would like to thank everyone that sent me a block, I have learnt alot about sewing, colours & stitching in doing this swap and everyones hard work show in the almost finished product, It is a quilt I will treasure forever.

Thank you

Christmas Advent Swap 2008

I would like to Thank to Deb (Shopperdeb) for making my December wonderful, the boys and I would eat breakfast every morning then sit around and open that days present and then on Christmas day I opened a beautiful Wall hanging which is now in my lounge room on the back of the piano chair.

Thanks for all the time and effort that went into this swap, Deb.
Also thank you to Lynette for organising it.

Family Christmas

This is a photo of the kids and there cousins who had a lovely time catching up together over Christmas. It's wonderful to see all the different ages playing together happily.

Happy New Year

Well I hope everyone survived the Christmas Crazy, and is ready to start the New Year refreshed.

I am on leave from work for another couple of weeks, its nice to have time at home with the boys, just doing what we like when we like. We have had a steady stream of visitors, which is hard at times but it is lovely to catch up with old friends and family.

I main problem with visitors is that I've had to cancel my visit to Voni, for shopping & coffee and cake, but I will try to sneak down very soon, I was really looking forward to it.

I hope everyone has a happy, productive and fulfilling 2009, and I look forward to hearing about what everyone is up to on the forum for the year ahead.
