A Paradise Of Birds

I am so excited! Irene Blanck has commenced a new block of the month, A Paradise Of Birds.
I purchased the first instalment today at Patch N Quilt, Gisborne from Mary. The completed quilt is stunning so I hope in 8 months time I will be on my way to owning one of my own.

FNWF achievement

I had just stated to sip from my glass of wine and enjoy the party when my SES pager went off. Driver verses kangaroo, driver ok, kangaroo not ok. Return home to begin again with a sip of wine and managed to almost complete the needle turn block for the Irene Block, Message In A Bottle. I am beginning to see the finishing line for this project.

Book launch Irene Blanck.

A new book for my already filled to capacity book shelf. I fell in love with Irene's patterns in the book so I just had to buy it. Personally signed!

For some time now I have been working on Irene's, Message In A Bottle, so now I am really motivated to get in closer to completion.

NSW Task Force Echo

Catching a plane to Brisbane then a bus to Lismore to assist the NSW SES with their storm jobs.
I'm thinking this is going to be one wet long weekend!

      Full PPE, check. Wet weather gear, check. Pet dog, check!

Gisborne, Victoria, remembers the Anzacs!

A Lone Pine has been planted at the Gisborne Cemetery to commemorate 100 years since the landing at Gallipoli. Let us watch it grow!

Lest We Forget

View at Mt Macedon from a previous year but the sentiment is the same every year. It's a very moving Dawn Service.

Vintage Sewing Collage

I have completed Gail Pan's design, Vintage Sewing Collage. It was a fun project and I found the buckle and vintage buttons in my Mother In Law's stash of buttons and buckles.

FNWF. Very Productive

I was able to complete a Gail Pan stitchery that I started at her workshop last weekend. I also stitched the first of Rosalie Quinlan's United Stitches. The rabbits are so cute and appropriate for Easter.

Baby quilt finished

Sue here....Marg has finished her baby quilt she started when we had a sewing weekend at Echuca.....isn't it beautiful?
It's called, Pretty Teds In Bed.
Calico Farm Designs.

Just need the baby which is due any day!

Playing with Marg's blog

Marg is having problems getting photos on her blog so I am having a play.
Have a good day.

I'm back!

After a long absence on blogger I will try now to be more reliable on entering a post. I think it may need to become a habit that I have not yet formed! Last night I participated in FNWF and worked on my Quilt of Love. I stitched the hearts and began the binding. I am hoping to finish it tonight.
