Me and my Janome

Hello Everybody,
 Hope you are looking foreward to a happy week of sewing and crafting.
I have been designating my time to Janome Memory Craft Quilters Companion this week and getting on top of my current projects

My placement wall is filling and I now have 5 Storm at Sea blocks finished and only 4 more to sew. I am trying to focus on these this week.
I also completed Apple Annie which I am pleased about as she has  been moved from one place to the other in the sewing room for ages. Now I will place her on my sewing room  wall to stay put.

I have always wanted to sew this next block so had fun putting it together.

I have also been in the bush over the road from my front door planting and fertilising some bulbs for Spring. I have planted Daffodils, Bluebells, and harlequin Sparaxis.

Bye for now ,Till next time .   Jen x

Enjoy your day.

MOTHER.  If I could give you diamonds
for each tear you cried for me.
if I could give you sapphires
for each truth you've helped me see.
If I could give you rubies
for the heartache that you've known
If I could give you pearls
for the wisdom that you've shown.
Then you'll have a treasure, mother,
that would mount up to the skies
That would almost match
the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes.
But I have no pearls, no diamonds,
As I'm sure you're well aware
So I'll give you gifts more precious
My devotion, love and care.

Wishing all the Mums a very happy day .

Hello Everyone,
Yaah !! this past weekend have managed to get a project finished. My Quiltie Trades are finished and ready for the post at the end of the month to Sandie Kaye who is running the trades .You can visit her at  to see the fun happening.
Some more progress on a UFO Baby quilt,  now only needing a small border then the binding. See what happens next week with that now I have found my time again.

These are the lovely quilts that arrived in the mail  for me from the Trade. It is always exciting when the small parcel arrives in the letterbox.

These below are my finished quilts to send at the end of the month. The theme being Black and White with one extra colour or embelishment. So I chose pink.

Another 3  Hexagons and a helper in the garden today.

My grandson Korbyn . He has been in the sewing room today  sorting the fabric and buttons.

It has been getting cooler now with winter coming soon . A minimum of 8C and a maximum 18C with light winds  and warm sun today. Still nice to sit outside.
The full moon tonight is the closest to earth in 18 yrs and 16% brighter than normal it said on the news. This is giveing us high tides and waves 3 metres high.
We have been outside looking at the moon .It is really bright, It would make a good photo ,too bright to take a photo with my camera.
Happy sewing ,
Goodnight ,  Jen x
