Colour Swap

These are the purple gifts I sent to Susan  http://susans_sewingspace_.blogspot.com.au
Something edible   Purple lollies in a purple thread catcherPosted by Picasa
Something for a room in the house   Purple towels
Something Smelly    Body lotion and drawer liner All in purple of course
And Something personal   Initialed Notebook cover and book mark and a purple pen
Susan has received her gifts and Iam eagerly awaiting mine
We had a frost this morning and a beautiful day
Shame I had to go to the dentist
Would have much preffered to be in the garden
Did get the windows cleaned though

Auntie's 80th

 On Saturday night we had a family tea to celebrate my Aunts 80th
Very pleased to say she loved her table runner
Now she is not the only one in the family that does not have one

A little Visitor

 Thought you might like to see who came to visit me today
She was checking out my wood pile
 Then went her merry way up the blackwood tree
She is now spending time in our tree plantation

Still plugging away with Maggie,s Angetl quilt for Fnwf

 Last night I joined Cheyll and the girls for a night of sewing. I started a bit later than I had planned because my daughter and the grandkids dropped over. That did mean some sewing so I guess I can include that in my FNWF. Had to sew on Anthony's footy numbers for his game today Basically  after they left I mainly did lot's of cutting then a bit of sewing
Worked on the Flying geese.
 Made some tiny star blocks All 1/12 inch bits
 Managed to get the flying geese sewn on

 Then today three friends joined me for a craft day We made a tissue box cover and some cards
We did a lot of eating and chatting as well
So all in all had a nice time
Hope you all enjoyed your night as well

Better Late than Never

 A little while ago I won Anthea of Hibiscus Stitches Birthday giveaway
Love the little zippered bag
Have been having some computer issues so it has taken a little while to post the pics
Thanks Anthea
I love it all
 For those of you who have been asking the grave has been moved
Much better
So much unnecessary grief for two grieving families
A little common sense would have gone a long way
I have been doing a bit of sewing but no finishes to show as yet
