Back to reality...

Well, a three day talk fest has come to an end, Chookyblue and Fairy Girl are heading back home again. Hopefully the flooding around their place will let them through without too much difficulty. Funny how they were desperate for rain not so long ago, and now they are flooding. We have no control over nature, do we?As long as they are safe as are our other friends coping with some of the worst flooding for thirty years in NSW and Queensland at the moment...thinking of you all. 
We had a busy few days, time was spent catching up with our friend Lea, travelling to Newcastle for a spot of shopping (we have critiqued Newcastle patchwork shops and bought out Smiggle!!!!) and a visit to my Mum, and just some quiet time around here.There was some of this...
and a celebrity snap...
 some repro progress...

and a bright quilt from Lea...
just great to catch up before FG headed back to school! Will wait to hear that they are safely back at Chez Chook....

Sound like you all had a wonderful time. Not to sure that the cat wants much more work done on that lovely surf quilt there :o) He looks quite comfortable.

I hope they made it back home safely and that the flooding subsides for everyone soon. I agree that the cat looks very comfortable on that quilt.

Had to laugh at the "bought out Smiggle". I often feel I am singlehandedly keeping that company in profit!

Nicky said...
