further to my last post....what Ive been doing

AND further to my last post....what Ive been doing whilst I am sposed to be doing nothing....I "prepared earlier" a few tops that I had which I managed to finish and quilt...so now all I have to do is the handsewing of the binding and putting the label on

This first one (which Megan has claimed) is Carolina Crossroads - made from a mystery quilt pattern from Bonnie
Instead of doing it scrappy like most did I only used three fabrics...but I do like how it turned out.
The next one here...


is called Bento Box and is a kit I got from Ballarat Patchwork and is a Judy Turner pattern. Quick easy and turned out great too!!!
So as you can see I havent been just sitting around waiting for the rain to come!!!

catch up time


Sorry I havent posted for a while but I have been away (well actually Ive been in and out of hospital!!!)
So....Im on the mend now - just need to be patient (dont you hate that word!!!) and not lift etc for a while...but... this is what I came home to - a lovely sign made by Sarah and Megan AND a pot of tulips....just lovely

happy birthday mia


Guess who is now one????
If you guessed Mia then you are right!!!!!!!!
Saturday my gorgeous granddaughter turned one - and Aimee (her mummy) kindly sent me this photo of her - this is the doll I gave her, and she is sitting on the quilt I made her. In the background is a basket I got when I was her age that my Mum resurrected and gave to her.
Am I proud - of course!!!
And its amazing how quick this year has gone - and to see Mia grow and shine as she develops into a gorgeous young girl/toddler
