Another busy month nearly over and my latest pop up quilt show

Today has been a wonderful sunny day heralding hopefully that spring is just around the corner. It was the perfect weather to have another mini pop up quilt show of the the latest 10 quilts I have completed for the local women's shelter. Once again I tried to make a variety for women and young children. They will be delivered during the coming week.

Last weekend we traveled to Hobart for my graduation from UTAS for my Diploma of Family History. It has been nearly 40 years since I last graduated from UTAS with my Bachelor of Science and Diploma of Education. What a day Friday was. We delivered Bridie's Blossoms packages and super nurse key rings to hospitals in Hobart .
Then it was off to graduation to receive my Diploma of Family History. A highlight was my very good friend Brenda Hodge giving a wonderful Welcome to Country address . Brenda and I have known each other for nearly 40 years and she did not tell me she was doing it.
I had one of my regular check ups with my oncologist at the beginning of the month . Thankfully that went well with the next scheduled one in December. We were out of bed very early that day as I also had an interview with ABC Northern Tasmania radio talking about Bridie's Blossoms. I was very humbled indeed by the reaction which it received.

There is a little bit of a story HERE

You can listen to the interview HERE
