Back in the sewing room.

Hello Everyone,
Hoping this post finds you all happy and well.
After getting back on here I then had to leave again as hubby went back to hospital .He has been in for 3 weeks this time doing inpatient rehabilitation getting him walking again and gaining strength..
So I am getting a little sewing done. Yeah !! Also starting back to my weekly sewing group of friends on a  Tuesday.  Finally starting to get back to normal, It's been a long time.

Started putting the blocks together for Chaos in the Courthouse, It is made like a Log Cabin block and half a Courthouse Steps block.

It takes me longer sorting the colours than piecing them together.

I have sorted 9 blocks and have 21 to sew .

One thing the last year has taught me ,I never take each day for granted anymore.

Plenty to do now getting my wool and project sorted for winter .

Nearly Autumn and will be glad of some cooler weather.
Happy sewing week .

A new project on the way.

Hello Everyone,
Today enjoyed a beautiful cool summer day after sweltering yesterday in 43C heat. Fortunately stayed in the air conditioning at my sewing class group and at home. There is more hot days to come though!!
I took along a new project to start and was sorting my blocks and colours .

 Lee from class has  been busy creating some beautiful applique on her quilt.

Val has finished the top of her quilt .It is lovely showcasing the beautiful selection of fabric.
Their accomplishments are always impressive.  So much passion for their craft.

I had a family birthday and my big grandsons came with a Freddo Frog ice cream cake. It was really nice after dinner.

A friend Cheryl made this lovely Birthday card for me.

I decided not to count any more birthdays.  This is what I have decided. haha.

Some of our Australian wildlife trying to cool of in the heat.

Thank you for calling in .
Happy sewing.

Hello Everybody.

I haven't been able to be on here much as hubby has been back in hospital again, as if 5 months before wasn't enough. I have had to focus on him this year as I nearly lost him.  He is home again now. Yeah !!

I have been thinking of you all . I love connecting with my blogging friends. This year I have been missing out on all the creativity that has been happening and everyone's journey through life.

Bring on 2017 . I just want to forget most of  2016  It wasn't very good !! .

From Australia and me .

Wishing you and your family A Happy Healthy New Year.

Thank you over all the years for calling in and  dropping by leaving your comments .
You are truly appreciated. God bless you all.
