Fun in my fabric world....

Thursday, March 27, 2014

Whoops, winter is heading our way!

Beautiful rain is soaking the east coast of NSW, and farming friends are celebrating the saturation of their dry farms. The rain has both cleansed the dust from our homes and calmed anxious souls....at least we know it hasn't forgotten to rain. Thinking of those farming friends...hopefully your tanks are filling tonight.
It has been a busy couple of weeks here (so what else is new for any of us?),


there has been some sewing time making a quilt for my special birthday boy,


A visit to deliver his gift and celebrate a special day for him,


When did he grow up, as I am sure I don't look any older!


A circle game completed, I am glad I persevered!


A trip home with rain in sight,


And some sweet fabric play that has brightened my day!
This weekend, I head to Sydney to sew with friends, some of whom I have "blog-known" for a couple of years....it is super exciting to know that tomorrow I will meet these lovely ladies and spend an inspiring weekend with them. It is amazing to look at the friendships that are formed through our love of sewing, I treasure my "imaginary friends",


and look forward to lots of show and tell, chatting and laughter...watch this space!

Where did that time go! I remember a beautiful red headed boy in nappies....I'm sure I don't look any older either! Pass on my congratulations to him for me. Have a fabulous weekend.

Yes Cardy, our kids do have a habit of growing up without us really noticing! His quilt is amazing, well done, and a whole three days before it was given, your procrastination with binding is fun to read!! x
