Sail boats and wintery weather ...

These are the blocks that I did for the 6 inch swap ... Sue B was my partner ... she asked for these sweet little sailboats ... pattern from Quilters Cache 




I have not been able to get do much sewing so far this week .. the weather here is shocking and we have had people coming and going for the past couple of days ... 

It is a present blowing a gale outside .. and raining cats and dogs ... and it is so bitterly cold ... and for me to say it is cold ... it really has to be cold .... I just check the local weather site on the net and it says currently outside at midnight it is 9 degrees ... and also says it feels like it is 5 degrees ... our outside thermometer says it is 6 degrees here ... and i reckon it feels like 3 degrees ... 

Now I know to some of you .. that is not too bad at all ... but for here in 'sunny' Queensland they are saying it is the coldest 'snap' we have had in 5 years ... so you will have to excuse my whinging ..hahaha ..  I am just not used to this sort of thing ... and honestly do not particularly like this sort of cold weather ... 

But it will pass .. and it will be summer soon enough ... and guaranteed .. I will be back whining about the heat ... .... yep .. there is just no pleasing me ... 

The men folk don't mind this sort of cold snap though .. cos I tend to cook and bake when it is like this .. the heat from the oven helps warm the house up ... tonight they had home made pies for dinner .. and then for sweets .. a nice serving of bread and butter pudding ... with lashings of cream .... i had a small serving without the cream ... but did enjoy a lovely chicken and vege pie ... 

sorry no pics .. they ate it all before I could get the camera out ...

  3. Those sailing boat look like they are heading for warmer waters. I agree it is just too cold here this last week. The boys are cooking tonight potato and leek soup and steak and veg. Should warm the house up a bit.
