Back to my SKOW Quilt

Christmas Holidays is a great time for me to get into my sewing room.
I got stuck into my Some Kind of Wonderful Quilt.
I started it back in Dec 2011.
I know why I procrastinated, so many little squares.

I changed my sewing block by adding a Sewing Bag instead of the quilt blocks

Baby Quilt Completed

I've finished my Natalie Bird "All Creatures Great & Small" Quilt.

So glad I didn't give it away and kept it for my own Granddaughter who will be born next year.

Loved all the little stitcheries

My new ladder is perfect for displaying my quilts

Back to the Sewing Room

Christmas is over so time to get back into the sewing room.
Time to clean up the room first.
I found these Long Stitch Projects I finished in 1988
I've hung them back on the wall in my sewing room
 Nice to have them on display again

Christmas 2014

Merry Christmas to my Blogging friends.
Christmas is over for another year, hope you enjoyed your time with your family and friends. 
 Guess who got a selfie stick for Christmas :)
 Me & My Wonderful Dad
 Three Generations
 My Gorgeous Kids
 Ex Husband and his Son joined in the fun too

 My whole BIG crazy family
 My Son and his Girlfriend gave me two of these beautiful Dragonfly Cushions
 My Son also found this ladder on Trash & Treasure and haggled the poor lady down to $10 :)
 I was very spoilt with this new Clock too
 And Purple thermomix bowls are perfect for me too
I had a lovely Christmas but wish it could have been slower

Special Delivery

I delivered the quilt to my sister today and she was over the moon. A few tears were shed.
Backed with polar fleece

A Granddaughter on the Way

My daughter and her partner (like many these days) have found out they are expecting a little girl.

She was very shy at the scan and wouldn't show her face. She was also very busy moving.
So Granny will have some sewing to get done over the Christmas Holidays

The Great Gadsby Theme

Our work Christmas Party was on last night
The venue was a restaurant called The Old Bank
So we decided to have The Great Gadsby Theme
I sent out to try and look completely different again this year
You might remember my Friday 13th Outfit last year
So blonde and short hair for this year
So many people didn't recognise me :)
A great old Baseballer. The fabric was like interfacing 
 My boss had a great outfit complete with blow up machine gun
 Me with some of the wives
  My "mad" workmate was Marilyn Munroe Blonde
 Other workmate looks like Tony Greigg
Best Dressed Lady - Because she had SO much happening
 Best Dressed Gentleman - check out the shoes
(I picked the Baseballer but he went missing)

Afternoon Walk

I took my dog for a quick walk before more rain started to fall.  Rainbows were out
Loving the countryside just a short walk from home
New signage coming into town
More rainbows

Storm Clouds

I'm not sure if everyone has had the rain, storms, thunder and lightning that we had over the weekend.
There hasn't been much rain in it but the clouds and skies have been amazing

This was sunset at the back of my house
More amazing cloud formations and playing with the panoramic setting on my phone
Loving all these clouds and with the wind, it was changing so quickly
