Happy New Year

Another hot day,

but it is summer.

I have been staying indoors trying to getting the most quilts finished before the New Year.


Once quilted I had to decide on binding.

Hmm, plain or pattern....I opted for pattern.

What do you think?

I thought I would share this from Twitter.

I decided to join Twitter to keep tabs on this bush fire on Christmas Day.

A hot, busy, sad Christmas this year.

The last few days have been so hot,


and last night bush fires were close.


So I put my quilt on a table

sat in the path of the air conditioner

and stitched.

Cooler tonight. I might even have to put the quilt on my lap.

Not surprised

Well my little kits are done and given away
so I can unveil my Christmas stitching now.

I have edited this photo
why does blogsy not show that version?
So so annoying.
But look...
I fixed it this morning.

Trying not to panic

Well in 2 weeks time I hope to be relaxing after my big lunch.

In the meantime I am trying to be slow and steady

in my Christmas preparations.

Today I made some cards!

I bought these plain from Kmart.

It was the old fashioned envelopes I wanted.

I thought they would be good for my journal to keep things I don't want to glue.

I hope my friends love these envelopes like I do.


Now, what else did I have to do......

I have been keeping busy

Well it's that time of year isn't it

when a sense of panic can set in.

I have ordered my Christmas turkey and picked out a ham.

Maybe I should think about a cake....

while I'm doing a bit of kimono unpicking

I am thinking about a cake.

And I have been thinking while I do a bit of hand quilting.

Nearly there.

And I have basted this quilt ready for hand quilting.

Maybe I should do some tidying up next.
