What have I been up to ....

Hmmm .... Not as much as I would like to have done .. but I have been getting bits and pieces done ... 


I had a sleep over with my friend Maddy ... and we did a bit of sewing .... way into the wee hours of the morning .... and then did some more till near on dark .. then I think our sleep deprived bodies got the best of us ... so I packed up my toys and went home ... now that was the weekend before last .... and Friday just gone .. I went back over to Maddy's place and did a bit more on this lovely quilt top ... and when I say a bit I mean ... just a bit .... family called and I had to go ... but it was ok ... cos .. I did some more today .... now ... you can't see what I did cos I have not taken any pics ... but Maddy did .... and you can see them here ...

I did manage to get some other things finished and sent off in the mail ... 

A mugrug .... this I made for a dear friend ...  


This mugrug .. also for a sweet friend but for a swap ... 




this was made for Kristy W .. a block swap partner .. 


and this floating flying geese block was also for a block swap ... this one is going to live in Denham Springs in the US .... my first attempt at such a block and I was very very happy with the result ... and it really is not as hard as I thought it would be to do ... love this one .... 


I will be opting out of all my online block swaps as time is getting away on me and we will be soon leaving the delightful Toowoomba region and climbing aboard our bus for parts unknown ...... driving off into the sunset ..... but somewhere on board will be my sewing machine and a decent stash of fabrics .... he is not getting rid of that stuff yet ... or ever really .... if i have to throw away all his clothes to fit the fabric in .. I will ... there are priorities in life and his clothing is way down on my list ... haha ... 

I have a few hand sewing things I will be taking ... not that I do a lot of that at the moment ... but then I have television ... internet .. and a rather spacious sewing room here and hand sewing is not something I really need to do .... but .. stuck out in the 'never never' .. who knows what I will be forced to do for entertainment ...

Well I have to go ... there is a grandson waiting for his Nan to pick him up from work ... less than 2 weeks now before he sits his test for his license ... hopefully he will get it and then Nan can stay home and do her blog ... or sew something .. or maybe even pack and clean some stuff .... ready for her big adventure ...

  2. of course like your website but you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.
