The Latest Happenings.

Hello Everyone,
This week has been dark clouds drenching rain and flood alerts here in Australia and a slow moveing cyclone sitting close to the western coast line heading for land..

 Today the mailman delivered me a parcel from Sweden. What a lovely surprise, a dear blogging friend has sent me by mail a package and to my delight when I opened it found this lovely Tilda March Angel who is waiting for Spring to arrive. She likes lavender and it is in her pillow and she carries a small quilt for picnics ready for Spring I am told. There is a little bird that sits on the twigs and is sitting  in the lovely lace apron in this photo.  Isn't she absolutely adorable. I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her.

Today I made a scrapbook page of Tilda to record her comeing to her  new home. I only have to put at the top of the page where I have left a space some writing.

This last week I have finished a small 16" square sailing quilt for my husband. He is a sailor and I have hung it on the sewing room wall. It was a fun block to sew.

Last Tuesday in my sewing class group Glenda finished the tops of 2 fabulous quilts.
You can guess that Glenda has grandsons her other quilt a while back was a Pirate ship and now we see Dinasours for this quilt. Any child would love these Dinasours.

No 2 quilt is amazing it is an outstanding job. Love the colour choice giveing the quilt movement.

Currently I have 2 near finishes and tonight I have to do some unpicking!!  Then add a border to the quilt I am sewing at the moment.
From me and my Janome.
Happy Sewing.
