It has been a busy one as I try and finish off a few projects as well as do some work on the BOM's etc.
I have completed Clue 3 for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery (Grand Illusion) and have compared my Clue 3 with my two Tuesday afternoon stitching friends who are also doing the mystery. You can check out what other people are doing by visiting the Linkup page
This afternoon I delivered 6 more recently competed quilts to the local women's shelter. This is the last of my charity sewing for this year. 55 quilts have gone to shelters in the North and North West during the last 6 months. I have also made up the items for and delivered 162 Bridie's Blossoms packs to the hospitals in Tasmania for angel babies

Blocks 3 and 4 in the BFC 11th Anniversary BOM have just been emailed out to those who have signed up to do this BOM.
Megan has sent in pics of her BFC Anniversary Blocks 1 and 2. She is just using one colour for her embroidery and it works well with her fabrics. If you are wanting to make an ultra modern quilt with a minimal amount of colours this could be a way to go.
Megan has also completed the Pole Twist Table runner.
You can find the free pattern for this from the link on this page

I know that many of you like to know how the penguins are going. Here is a pic of one from last Saturday. It is very hard to take a good photo as they do not come out of their burrows or up from the sea until it is very close to dark and we are not able to use flash photography so as to not frighten them especially if they are feeding young.
