More Balanced.

Hello Everybody,
Hoping this post finds you happy and well.
Hopefully my computer problems have gone now so I can post and import my photos ,I did have trouble the last couple of weeks again but hope I have it sorted now.
I have had a good couple of weeks in the sewing room being dedicated to catch up on some UFO's and have some near finishes to report .Also I started a new project in amongst it all as I can't help myself  haha.
I am feeling more balanced in creating more time for myself and family, to be well rested getting to bed at a reasonable hour to arise early and make full use of my day.
It is now 2 years coming March that my dearly loved husband passed on and I feel less stressed and in some sort of order, so life goes on. Life is not fair but it is still good.

What would I do without my dear friends in my sewing group together each week for 16 years now.
 There is always new things happening.

Some lovely projects from my class group.

This pattern is from our sewing group teacher Lee  .I love all the applique and beautiful hand work.
Little butterflies flying across the quilt.

                   So pretty !!

                                Lee 's quilts.

 This is my quilt waiting to be quilted ,I'm not sure exactly how yet .It has to be finished by end of March for my sister's birthday.



  My latest baby quilt.

With the drought in Australia there has been dust storms from the red dirt in the  paddocks .Top soil from farms picking up and blowing across Australia. This one is blowing across Sydney from the middle of Australia. They travel hundreds of Kilometres, (miles) They damage houses and the dust gets inside.


 Heat wave conditions, Fire , Cyclones , Heavy rain and flooded rivers. happening the same week in all the different states. bad week.

Love the sea .I love the water scenes as they are so tranquil and relaxing to view letting your cares float away.


 Life is better at the beach a day at the beach restores the soul.




 My beaches .


 Thank you for calling into my blog and saying hello when you can.
Happy sewing week .

Hello Everyone,
I am happy as long as there is a new project on the horizon .I do have some new projects lined up but I also have a line up of  too many UFO"S . I have been determined to finish them and have been working on them so have some near finishes . I have been doing bindings ,raw edge applique and sashiko embroidery and quilting. .I find hand sewn bindings quite relaxing.
With everyone showcasing their works on here it is very motivating. The enthusiasm is catching.

 This is getting sandwiched tomorrow and a binding .It is a bed runner for the bed.



I did have a helper sort out the block placement .


Not much help as Chloe wanted to play.

Tonight I will have completed the binding on one  ufo quilt with my little helper sitting next to me watching television.,so slowly getting them done.
Stay happy and well .
Seek the joy in everyday.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hello Everyone.
Can't believe I can finally post on here again.I have had so much trouble for the last 3 months trying to work out why I can not suddenly  import and upload to my blog . At that time I updated with a new iPhone that caused heaps of trouble .
Not thinking anything was related to that,  I tried all things and even bought a new photo program and deleted my old one . Then I couldn't get the new one to work . I tried for about 4 weeks .
Finally out of frustration I sought other help. I was told because my iPhone was new and the update locked me out was the cause. Now having reloaded the old photo program to my pc and it is working fine. I didn't need a new photo program.  Sorry that was boring.😐
 
I did miss you all and all the amazing  projects. It was along time.
Some quilts from my sewing group.

Love these table runners that Glenda made and gifted.



Vicky has made 2 window  garden quilts  .Pretty views.


Love this panel.  I'm going to make this wall hanging next year for Anzac Day.

This Christmas tree panel is Beautiful The embellishing is amazing. A lovely wall hanging for
 Christmas.






I have to show my gorgeous new Great Grandaughter now 3 months old so beautiful. I am so excited to be a Great Grandmother.  Ella Jewel.
I  am blessed .

Thank you my blogging friends putting up with me over the last year been sad but am back on track .
Happy healthy New Year to you and your family .
Love Jen xx
