Finally a sense of balance.

Hello everybody,
It's been too long since my last visit and catching up with all the dear blogging friends on here .
I hope this post finds you happy and well.

What I like most about my blog it gives me the motivation to be creative.Working on some balance with my daily duties seems to be working, so lots of hope for  things to come ,staying enthusiastic and  creating time for myself and my family . Early to bed early to rise ,very unusual for me as I have been a  night owl for ages .Get up at a reasonable hour to make full use of my day, being a bit more patient,
Seems to be working for me.

Taking my puppy for a walk at the lake she was tired and had to pick her up,walking with a friend.

I have some projects finished .This is a baby play mat for my grandaughter who is going to make me a great grandmother !! I am so excited. Have found out it is going to be a little girl baby ,So making a  cot quilt now.

2  warm bunny rugs 
2 charity quilts finished from quilting class.

The quality controller checking my quilt , I think it has  passed.

Going to make some blocks from this book and put them together for a quilt.

Three days time it will be Winter here .I am glad the heat has gone.
Thank you for calling in.
Happy sewing week .
Jen xx  💚

Some more progress.

Life is not fair but it is still good.
It is good catching up with my blogging friends where I find my inspiration. Your enthusiasm is catching.
Love seeing everyone's projects ,it certainly is an amazing place of interest.
I have just finished the binding on a small quilt but haven't taken a photo as yet.
I have a quilt on the placement wall ready for a border and binding which I hope to achieve tomorrow.  Also have been changing my sewing room and I'm nearly done with that.

The sewing ladies have been achieving some finishes.

Lee has finished her beautiful quilt .There is some lovely detail with the  hand quilting and a beautiful selection of fabrics.

Val finished this gorgeous pretty quilt

This is the stage I am up to for a baby quilt with puppies and kittens  fabric from Moda.

Glenda has a finish with this project that a few of the ladies are doing. The blocks  coming from  fabric in their stash.

Hello from Chloe
Found out she can jump on the bed now !!!

Happy sewing week .

Happy as long as a new project is on the horizon.

Hello everyone,
Hope all is well with you. We have had a very strange week . The world in general is having inclement weather lately. In one week during Autumn here in Australia we have had heat of 38.4C ,Bad fires with homes lost in Victoria. Snow in Tasmania.  Cyclones in the Northern Territory. Dust storms out west. Torrential rain falls and today in my state New South Wales where I am has been pouring rain all day with flash flooding and water laying on the roads. All in the same week.!!

Amazing that I am back on here haha but I have been getting some projects done except for the quilting ,one of my challenges and have some blocks on the placement wall and hopefully that is all done very soon.

My sewing group have been designated to their sewing projects with some gorgeous quilts .

Sondra has been making quilts for the children charities.

 Glenda has been creative with the challenge of these different blocks.
 Love this quilt that Lee has made .It is more striking than the photo shows

Lee has also finished her  beautifully worked appliqued quilt. Beautiful choice of colours also.

 Another block challenge.

These block challenges all look so different being the same block patterns.
 Sharon has been very productive and skilled finishing her quilt.
It is beautiful well worth the work .

The quilting is lovely also .Love the colour choices.

Lynne has made this pretty baby quilt.

My baby quilt I have a finish except for quilting

Here is my little Chloe saying Hello ,I am 6 months old now.!!

A sad day for me today. It is 12 months today since I lost  my dear husband ,the love of my life for 56 years.
Thank you for calling in dear blogging friends.
Love Jen xx
