Been a while

I have just noticed that it has been so long since I last posted. However, if you happen to look at my Facebook page you will know that I have been very busy.

First up I have just finished writing up the instructions for this new quilt using the Puppy Patrol  set of designs from  Hatched in Africa. The quilt has already been adopted by a school group that makes projects etc for disadvantaged children and they will find a very good home for it with a little girl I am sure.

You can download the instructions for this quilt from HERE.
This quilt is very versatile in that you can use a wide range of 5x7 inch designs.

We have commenced penguin guiding of a Saturday night although it is still a little chilly at the moment. There are already chicks to be seen. We had a beautiful moon and sunset last Saturday night.

Although most of the spring bulbs have come and gone in our garden the azaleas are at their most spectacular best.

I have also been working on some items for  Bridie's Blossoms. Packs have been delivered to hospitals and I have just finished 120 keepsake handkerchiefs for those attending the Bears of Hope International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day in Hobart on October 15th. I think I have used 8 metres of lawn and 123 metres of lace in the making of these handkerchiefs.

Finally it is done

I am finally on the mend after having been unwell for nearly 3 weeks with what appears to have been a pneumonia type virus. I am sure that by this time next week I will be back to my old self.  
Night and Day Quilt

I have been slowly completing the Night and Day quilt and have just now finished writing up the instructions. You can download them from HERE. When the page opens click on the downward pointing arrow in the centre at the top of the screen.

We have had a glorious start to spring and the garden has been magnificent.
