However, I have not been idle since my last blog post. I have now completed 5 units of my Diploma of Family History through he University of Tasmania and currently working on units 6 and 7. The final unit will be in early 2017 and hopefully I will graduate in August 2017.
We have just been to Hobart to spend some time with my husband's family. This was to celebrate our 60th birthdays but that was postponed from July when I was unwell. We spent some time visiting friends, doing family history research and went to the cinema to watch The Light Between Oceans which is set in Stanley Tasmania. Beautiful scenery an dour nephew was one of the stand in townsfolk. We visited St Matthews Church in Glenorchy and found the headstone of one of my gggg grandmothers, Susannah Mortimer. We were thrilled to find some of her history showcased in artwork on a nearby wall. Susannah was one of the very early settlers to Tasmania.

I have made a baby quilt for the new niece of my daughter's housemate. It is stitched using the new Baby Elephant Applique set from Hatched in Africa. I have written a tutorial for this quilt and it can be downloaded from HERE.
