GDITC update

I have been enjoying applique-ing my Nundle wallhanging. It is really sweet...added the ricrac & loooots of french knots, but I like the finish of it. I am really keen to get onto the embroidery as I love embroidery of all types. I can sit outside & do it or with the family, but I find I relax well with hand work. Embroidery has been a passion since I did long stints of night duty more than 25 years ago. I love the way I can combine patchwork & embroidery to make beautiful things for my home, friends & family.

A peek at a new project.


Sadly today I spoke to a friend, hard to believe we have been friends for 30 years, who is having a tumour removed from her heart next Monday. Fit & healthy, this has been a distressing shock for her family & those who love her. The prognosis is good, but it reinforces the unpredictable course of our lives & the importance of loving each other & appreciating each day. Love you Shell!
