- This is where I'm up to with Christmas Garden, by Blackbird Designs, the second pic is where I was at back in May(didn't think it had been that long....lol) The top pic is a better representation of the fabric colour.
- Next is Block 5 of the Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery BOM. This block is designed by the Blackbird Designs girls Barb and Alma...... still loving these fabrics. Block 6 is ready to sew and Block 7 should be in the mailbox any day.
- I had my first attempt at prairie points on the first of two Pinwheel baby quilts, this is the completed top in Ruby fabrics, and I now need to add the prairie points to the one I have done in Bliss fabric. The little twin girls these are for recently turned 1, so I need to make this a priority!! Not sure how I will quilt these yet..........
I have heard from my lovely SSCS partner Cheryl in California that her parcel has arrived. I can't find the photos I took of it, but when I do I will share the ornament I sent here.
We finished weaning our lambs this week, this was about 2000 ewes heading for the back of the farm yesterday .........
Our girls are finished school for the year, they have both had a great year at school, our Miss 12 was awarded with the General Excellence prize for her class. She was first in English, Mathematics, Science, Phys Ed and Visual Art, and also received a prize for Citizenship. Our Miss 10 performed beautifully in her kapa haka group at their breakup, and has received a school report for the year that we are so proud of. Apologies for the skiting, but there are two very proud parents here........ :o)
I hope your Christmas plans are going as they should, I'm off to town today to make sure that we will be ready too.
Till next time .......... happy stitching............ Nicky
