Enjoying the Holiday Season

Happy Australia Day all that live in our great land. It has been a month since Christmas & it has been a great holiday season going to the beach, catching up with friends and family & crafting on the hot days in the air conditioning with the Cricket or Tennis in the back ground. It has been a nice holiday with DH also having the time off.

While watching/listening tennis I have finally finished a Mum's quilt. Finished size is 85"x92" (216cm x 235cm). It started a long time ago (July 2013) as a sampler to challange myself to try different blocks. The colours just reminded me of going to Mum & Dad sea side home, aqua for the beautiful water, gold for the the sunshine, white for the beach & blue for the great skies. Just love a visit to Oma & Pop's house. What do you think?


Maybe be the reason quilts take so long to get finished, is that I get side tracked when I hear there is a new baby on the way or a clarity quilt needs to be made or dance costumes for 19 to be made. Here is the lastest top finished on the weekend.


Looking forward to having some time to craft over the next year.
