A bit of this and that


Another "Fernhill" block done ..... its great to know the end is in sight.


I'm still working on "Twilight Garden" slowly but I will get there.



What does one do now ......... I did the pinning on this quilt today but now I have to decide how to quilt it, I hate this part as I'm not really a great quilter so trying to think of something simple but nicer than just ditch stitching.


Here is our very brave "Pippa" ..... nasty weather is on its way and she is hiding under the quilt table...... so funny really.


Our Tuesday group celebrated  Laurel's birthday..... she is on  holiday for 5 weeks overseas (tough job but someone has to do it)  as I write this so I do hope she is enjoying her time away.

                                                                         Pressie opening


My gift for Laurel was the heat bag from "A Gardener's Journal" book.


                                  Well I'm off to watch the footy and get a bit more stitching done.

Our dog went a bit weird for a while too. I love Laurel's little sewing machine...

You have been busy with your other projects too. Like you I am not a lover of deciding what to quilt.
