My crochet and embroidered centres.




I have not been doing very much of my work the last month being away and everything else that happened.

I did manage to do some crocheting on two embroidered centres I made a few years ago.I had made three so now only one left to finish.

I had forgotten I had made them so was pleasantly surprised when I found then when cleaning out a cupboard.

I enjoyed doing the edges.

A new idea for a bag

I was given this as a late birthday present..lol I love it.
The bag is made out of the 6 pack bag you get from the bottle shop to carry your 6 bottles of wine home in.

My friend Lorraine took out the middle and covered the outside, added a strip to each handle, added a button and loop. It is just the right size.

I Love It.

Gin Gin class

Halloween coming up ladies
I had another wonderful day teaching the ladies in Gin Gin my Flowers in the Sunshine Class. Sue also brought along her finished quilt from the last class.

Sue with her Disappearing Nine Patch
Most of the ladies have never free machine stippled so were very excited to see how easy it was
to do.

This is such a wonder group of ladies to teach and I am looking forward to going up for two classes next year. As a treat they are arranging a shop hope to the Sunshine Coast and are going to spend a night with me. Can't wait.

I can live with reflux

I am just back from having my endoscopy and so relieved that all is ok. Still waiting for the biopsy but I am feeling so much better knowing. I have not been able to focus but now am off to do some creating in the studio.
I can live with the reflux and it is not so bad now.

Lake Monduran

The bass my husband caught not quilt large enough for the prize but it will be nice for dinner.


Looking down the dam from the wall and then looking the other side. I think either could make a nice quilt.
My husband caught a nice bass today but not sure if it is large enough to get a prize as a few were caught this morning. Only 3 barramundi I believe were caught and the same guy who caught the biggest yesterday has caught the one today. A nice prize for him.$1000 prize as well as the daily prizes. Of course my husband is hoping his ticket will be drawn out for the new boat draw and it would be nice.

I have been felting on the machine and hope to have a nice shawl ready to ware to a wedding on Saturday night. I love what the machine does but it is a bit boring just running threads down to felt together. Still a lot faster then knitting, crochet or felting the old way.
