Finally back on here.

It certainly is an amazing place of interest on here and I missed seeing everyones treasures and creations.
Life is certainly full of highs and lows.
The last 2 weeks has been a sad and worried time for my sister  and our familys as my sister's sick husband  went into hospital for  emergency surgery and sadly  failed to survive his complications and passed away 12 days later.

I have had a housefull and have been doing a lot of cooking.This is a favourite slice  of mine. So easy and yum. Thought you might like the recipe for this slice.

Base:  1/12 cups of crushed Nice biscuits. mix with 75 Grams of melted butter 
 into a square
tin and then  layer  1 cup  Chocolate Melts   then 1 cup of  Sultanas  then 1 cup
  Shredded coconut
and lastly 1 cup of  Slivered almonds  on top of base..   Pour over 1 tin of 
 Condensed Milk  .
then  Bake  in moderate oven 25-30 mins  or until golden brown and firm.
Store in fridge
 if warm or in airtight container.  Grease or line  slice tin with Baking paper.

My very first quilt I made is on the caravan bed. This was very satisfying to me and I became involved with quilting which I think is soothing ,joyful and fun. I was hooked straight  away and found my quilting group who became dear friends.

I must show Vicky's finished quilt from my sewing group. A beautiful hand painted and embroidered  pastel coloured pretty quilt .  She is so talented.

 Lovely fabrics so pretty.

I have to finish with these cute Australian Kangaroos. I have to say they are not seen as cute by our farmers.

I will add some  road signs from an album I scrap booked for fun. 

Seek the joy in every day.
      Happy sewing  Jen x
 ps. sorry my text is jumping everywhere on here and I don't know how to

Help !! Computer Takeover.

Hello blogging friends, Hope all is well with you.

I haven't been able to put a post up as my computers have been taken over this week in the school holiday time  here. I have been seeing what you all have been working on  from my iPad ,and you have been very productive with such lovely projects. I can't wait to get back to my Singer!

Bringing pleasure to our home is our dear grandchildren. I have had 4 baby ones the 1st week and 3 teenage ones the 2nd week . My pantry was full and now it is bare (well nearly) haha. Can those teenagers eat!!  Funny  how all the babies wake at 5-30 am and it is full on and the teenagers don't arise till noon after staying up late at night. Lucky I am flexible and I must add very tired at the moment  lol .

My sewing friends have been productive over the holidays and Lee has made a block book for keeping current project blocks in one place.

 Lee also made some activity mats to hang in the car for little children to use and keep their favourite toys and colouring books etc in while travelling . It has a velcro attached holder for rubbish or whatever.

I have finished my quilties for Sandra Kaye Quilty Trade for next months postage. The theme being Stitching.
This week I received in the mail  3 traded quilties  ,from Laurajane,Vicki and Carolyn, Thank you they are lovely.

The wattle is flowering now in the bush over the road from our front door and the bulbs I planted there are popping up.We have had some rain these last few days and today the sun is shining . Good garden weather.


Thank you everyone for dropping by for my first year of blogging and leaving your comments. I really appreciated your feedback.
I have just made it getting this post on here as I can hear movement from the Grandies ariseing, haha
Have a happy sewing week.
Jen x
