Short and sweet....

just to catch you up.....

on what I have been working on this week!

My Dream Catcher top is finished!

And this one, from Rose's leftovers, with a few of 

mine added....

Now to think about quilting them,

and wondering whether one could back the other?

Happy sewing!

Sharing the love...

I recently shared some of these fabrics I picked up 

in a destash.....

with my lovely friend Julie, in New Zealand.

In return she offered to make me a felt birdie!

But true to Julie's generous nature she sent two 

birdies, a pear and a magazine!

The patterns can be found here, in case you want to 

make your own!

I did manage to stitch this little decoration,

and have been working on my wonky stars!

for my "Oh Christmas Tree" quilt.

Happy sewing!

The stars aligned...

for us to ride The Eagle!

A local radio station was giving away free rides on 

the new 'chairlift ride' at Arthur's Seat,

here on the Mornington Peninsula.

My sister Helen sent them these photos of us on the 

original chairlift when it 

first opened, in 1960!

And we got selected to be two of the thirty available!

 As I am on leave, and Helen had a three-hour 

window in her work schedule....

we went and rode The Eagle!

To give you a better idea of how its changed,

I found this video of it back in the 60's

A Cadbury Carmamello Advertisement!

The view however is still as beautiful as ever!

I might need to take a quilt up here to photograph!

I hope this becomes a popular tourist attraction for 

the Peninsula!

I know one family who will be getting tickets for 


Happy days!

I forgot to show you these.....

I think I made these before I went to Tassie?

Another round of Chuck Nohara blocks.....





I now have 55 blocks.  

I will probably stop at 56,

otherwise I would need 63.

I don't think I have the enthusiasm for another 7!

I think there is an ice-cream there that didn't get a

photo of its own!

I'm now playing around with ideas for the sashing....

This last block I sent to my friend Elizabeth in the US,

         for her to add to her own Chuck Nohara quilt.

                                 Happy days!
