Its Done My Memory Quilt is Done

Posted by PicasaI have just finished my Memory Quilt
It has taken me 11 months from conception to completion
It has been quite a journey
So many emotions
Exactly 11 months ago , one year after my precious girl went to sleep for the final time, I was helping my son in law clean out her things
I just couldnt send her clothes to the Op shop, so as we  were packing her things in bags It came to me. A quilt
And here it is Made entirely from her clothes except for the fabric the photo's are printed on
Iam very pleased with it
I think it shows many aspects of her life
Her as a child. then as a much loved nurse
Her love of family and animals
Motor Bikes were her passion and she was indeed a speed demon as one of her tee shirts showed
Her wedding, where the smile never left her face, even though she was extremely ill at the time
I will get better photos when I work out how to hang it
I have never hung one quite so large before

More Cards Another Charity Quilt and I need computer help

Posted by PicasaI had another card making day with friends last weekend
I do enjoy these days
Made another quilt for the kids and have been doing a bit of secret sewing
All my swaps are up to date now
Please I need advice with this computer stuff again
Suddenly I have this "search conduit. com" thingy appear on my computer
It is making everything I do difficult
Can anybody tell me how to get rid of it
I did try to down load a pattern Not sure if I did something then
All I know is It is darn annoying

Once again I joined in the fun of Fee's Advent swap
My partner is the lovely Shez
Well I thought she was lovely ,but now I have to wonder
The lovely Shez is so organized that my parcel is here already
How cruel is that ?
I have to wait a whole month to get to open one little gift and they are staring at me just begging to be opened
Seriously Posted by PicasaThankyou Shez
Iam very excited
And Thanks Fee for once again organizing this swap
Shez will have to wait a little longer for her parcel
I'am not that organized

Home from Our Holiday

Posted by PicasaWe are back from a lovely relaxing two weeks away in our caravan
We toured up the coast , mainly just relaxing and sight seeing
We have had the caravan for about three years and this was the first time we have used it
Hope fully we can do it more often now, though with the farm Hubby finds it hard to get away
I managed a bit of stitching but can't show you
Secret swap stuff
And guess what Blogger is being kind tonight
