Heatwave coming !!

Hello everyone,
I miss being on here more often but have family duties as a carer lately to my brother. It is very time consuming and worrying at times, but that is what family is for when help is needed.
Life is full of surprises.
I have had a few projects on the go and have been sewing the blocks for my 5yr old Grandaughter's quilt and only have 2 borders to add and the top will be finished. I would like to quilt and bind it before Christmas. I will show it next post. It is really pretty.
Today I can showcase a beautiful quilt that Lee from my sewing group has finished. Lee is our leader and teaches us the tricks of the trade.

 Lee has sewed some lovely applique and embroideries making her quilt absolutely adorable .

Her skills and experience show in this beautiful quilt.

Another class group like our group, is led by Lee and everyone from the that class has made a block for this beautiful quilt and tickets are for sale and the money made will be donated to charity.  The quilt tickets usually bring in one to two thousand dollars .

This charity quilt is gorgeous and very impressive with the talent and skill by the quilting ladies.
Love this cross stitch.

My class group have a charity quilt nearly finished, waiting to be quilted and should be ready early in the New Year for selling the tickets.
Something has been wrong with Blogger this week and I couldn't upload my photos to the blog post for 5 days. Usually Blogger sees to these problems as quick as they can and all is fixed today.
We are waiting for a heat wave with some places heating up .
Western Australia had a very hot one with a 41C  . Also had bush fires with 4 people losing their life. Very sad.
On the East coast for me we are expecting high 30'sC . Our nation is very dry right now and it is still Spring!!!
Bye for now .
Happy sewing.
Jen xx

Hi Jen, family comes first especially when the person needs to be taken care of,your brother will truly appreciate it. The quilts are all very nice and pretty. I hope the heatwave does not last for to long, it burns off so much of the plants in the garden and the crops growing in the paddock.

I do hope your brother is better now after your care. The charity quilt is a real beauty. Enjoy the sunshine here it is wet and snow is threatening over the weekend, typical as I have scaffolding up over a week now for the roof to be replaced so hope for a dry spell soon

I never tire of looking at quilts. Lee's finished one is stunning! I can't wait to see your completed one. I just started one for my oldest granddaughter. I won't be done with it for several years!
