A visit to my Sisters.



I was at my sisters last week and took these pictures of her garden. Look at the King orchard. Six big clusters of flowers. It is just magnificent. Her little round garden looks so bright with the paper daises. I have never been able to grow them. What is the secret Dawn?



It is Fathers day this Sunday and we are having it at her home. It will be so nice with all the flowers in bloom.



I have been making another bag like the bright fun one I posted a couple of weeks ago. This one will be a more glamorous one.
Until next time

Last day of the Month

Well where has winter gone but it seems to be still here again this last week with night temperatures down to 7 again.
I guess before long I will be wishing for the cold weather again.
I have been working on a few projects the last few days.
I have knitted a scarf - I know winter over and decide to knit now. Must have been the cold change. It is a nice deep red with sequins through the wool. Really sparkles when it is in the sun.



This curved pipped runner is for my daughter and I will take it with me when I go up to see her next month.

I have made a chenille piece and want to make it into a little bag.

Classes at Peachester and Palmwoods



The happy ladies at Palmwoods when I showed them how to do this curved pieced block with piping. We had heaps of laughs and a bit of unpicking. Don't we all. At first they were just going to make a block but then they all decide to make four blocks and make a bag. I am pleased as I showed them a really quick way of making this block.

The black block was fussy cut and turned out quilt different.



These happy people here were in my quilt as you go class. Some thinking going on in this one as they had to concentrate on what they were doing in some of the techniques. I love quilt as you go and I think I gave the ladies some ideas of what they can do instead of sending the quilts out to a longarm quilter.
Until next time

Having a great time

The two Daryl's 50th

My husband and myself

Kerry a friend with me having a drinkie.

Here we are at a couple of 5oth parties.


How lovely to enjoy time with our friends as they made the big numbers in their lives.


My husband usually cooks a spit for the parties. He is the best spit roast cook you could imagine. Once we had a catering business and I often wonder if he misses it as much as I do.

I have been working on another bag in browns. It is looking really lovely and tomorrow and the next day I hope to get the beads on it. This time it will be a clutch bag. I will post when it is done.

We are going to see my 80 year old uncle tomorrow at Gatton. I have not seen them for a while and really looking forward to the trip.

Margot looks great in with her bears. She is so talented in the making of dolls and bears. I want to cuddle all the bears.

Palmwoods turned on the hospitality for the visitors with there lovely morning teas and lunches. These were provided but the Bowls Club ladies.
