I forgot the wonderful scarf/neckwarmer.  It will be very useful at Cootamundra this winter

Thank you

Hi,   I received a parcel in the mail.  It was the Autumn swap.  I haven't participated before and am blown away by the generousity. 

Thanks so much Cheryll.  You have taken so much time and effort to send me a great parcel.  I am looking forward to getting knitting, and those tiny scissors, how cute.

It is strange thinking about Autumn, as summer hasn't started yet here in NSW.

Ian is away with the SES, helping out people in flooded areas, so I am off to play in the sewing room.

Happy New Year

I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year holiday.  I certainly did.  We got in lots of flying and caught up with lots of friends.

This is a picture of the quilt I started in July, 2010, and have loved putting the blocks together, hated putting the sash pieces together, then had a terrible feeling it would not fit together, and would look terrible, so tossed it into the corner and made other quilts.

However, I couldn't let it beat me, so I bit the bullet and put it together, ( of course it fitted almost perfectly), had it professionaly quilted and it now lives on our bed.  Love it.
You can see the indiviual blocks in the July 2010 blog posts.
I am glad I got it out, it was a major block to overcome, but now I am ready and rearing to go with lots of new projects for 2012.

Catch you all later.
