Today ....

I had best get this post done as the day is rapidly running out ... 

I actually did some sewing today .... I managed to get a block finished for this months swap partner .... Sharyn ... she asked for a  house block in .. any bright colour under the sun ... so this is what is going out in the mail on Monday for her ... 


I put a bit of lace on the windows to dress them up a bit .. I do hope she likes what I have done with her house .... it should arrive home on Tuesday ... 

I will also post a photo of the quilt I made for our grandson Brad for his 18th birthday .... 
his is the first of many I have yet to do ...

opps!!! I forgot to mention .... I got the pattern for this here ... 



Tomorrow is Marcos' birthday ... 
I am guessing that we will spend a very quiet day at home ... because he says he will be old  ... haha ..

and now I am going to finish for the day ... 
close down the computer and get some sleep ... 

oh after I do a couple of emails that I should have done earlier in the day ...

Happy New Year !!!!

Hubby and I spent a very quiet night at home ..... listening to the dogs howling because of the fireworks around town ... poor pouches ... not at all a nice night for them ... I am sure that many folk had a wonderful night seeing in the new year ... I much prefer to stay home .. watch a good show on the tele and maybe have a very quiet drink at the stroke of midnight ... as a general rule this 'quiet drink' is a cup of joe ... which my darlin makes me ... then he heads for bed and I am left to return text messages from the family who are all still up and enjoying the coming of their new year ...

Our new year is going to be a great one ... I just know it ... we have big plans for this year ... travel being at the top of the list ... and for me on a personal note ... I shall be doing more sewing than I have done in the past ... and .... I hope to keep my blog up to date with at least something posted a couple of times a week ...

So that is it ... more regular postings here and ... more sewing ...... seems simple enough ... haha ... now to get this scatter brain to do it ...

First ..... I will make a couple of lists and go from there ... That should at least give me some direction .... It should not be too hard to organise once I have some lists to work from ...

so i am off now ... to do my lists .... see you soon ... and have a very safe and happy new year ...
