Home Sweet Home

Well I have finally finished travelling around the country side and I am back home
where I might add its freezing cold.

I have been to Yarrawonga which is up on the Murray River, the border of Victoria and New South Wales, to be with my Mum,while Dad had his knee Replacement Operation. Turns out he is the star
patient they discharged him today and he only had the op on Monday, not bad for 78.

Back to my quilting, while I was away I did manage to find some Patchwork Shops and brought
some fabrics.

An assortment of blues for hubbies quilt.
He's always hinting that he doesn't have his own quilt, so I have
decided to make a Wonky Log Cabin Quilt, I got the tutorial from
at Tallgrass Prairie Studio.

I have made a test block

and so far so good.

Also I purchased some brights for the backing for my summertime quilt

So all I need to do is get busy, so

Happy Quilting!!

Greetings from Sunny Queensland

I have managed to sneak a little time to blog, while hubby is snoozing, the weather here is absolutely
gorgeous about 20 to 24 degrees, sunny and not much wind. We have enjoyed some fantastic restaurants
here in Broadbeach, most with fantastic views of the beach. Today we enjoyed lunch at our favorite restaurant
Georges at Sanctuary Cove, I could not resist a photo of what we had, it was delicious, we could not get through it all. We were both so full afterwards.

We were both up early today and went for a walk to Surfers Paradise along the beach 3.7km there and back,
hubby decided to run 2kms of that, and that........... probably explains why he is now asleep at 4.00pm.
I have even been in the pool as well today, don't you just love holidays when you can concentrate on doing
things you never get a chance to do at home like, long walks, swimming, shopping, eating healthily  I am so looking forward to retirement, when your time is your own.

Have Fun!!

Holiday Time

Finally the time has come for me to pack my bags  and head off to Sunny Queensland for
10 days with Hubby, a well deserved break from the Business before the Christmas rush
approaches. Don't worry I have a few Patchwork Shops on the agenda, so looking forward
to new shops and quilts, and possibly,.... cross fingers some fabric. I have thought of packing the machine but as we are flying it's not possible...(I have been known to take my machine on
holidays before).

I will not go empty handed as I have packed my stitching for My Gardner's Journal Quilt, hopefully I will catch up as I am behind at the moment.

Soon as we get back I'm heading to Yarrawonga as my Dad is going to have a knee reconstruction,
so I will spend a couple of days with Mum and visit Dad as well.
So Blogging will be on hold for a while. 

Happy Quilting!
