Past Reflections update

It seems like for ages since I sat down and wrote anything new or interesting.  I guess I have been bogged down with mundane every day stuff.  We have been working hard to get ready for a 3 weeks break, filling lots of Wholesale orders, and making sure I do not leave too much for my daughter to sort out.  I have even turned my website off....yes, you can do that.......

My last job before I leave is to get this block made for you.  It is on the right hand side of the screen, near the top.  You just need to click on the image, and it *should* take you to where you can print it off.  My website is starting to need major overhauls and lots of things are going wrong that I can not fix myself, so this is how I am doing it until something better comes along.

It has been a long cold dreary winter in Adelaide, and I am not the only one to complain.  Everyone is grizzling about it.  Hardly any sunshine, so it does make you wonder how the sweet peas managed to flower.
This is the very first for this year, and I took a similar photo last year, at about the same time so I guess Spring is not that far away.

This was a nice little surprise for me.  I entered my "Little Sisters" quilt into the Melbourne Quilt show in July.  I have been a member for a few years and this is my 3rd entry.  Surprise!  I won a ribbon.  Unfortunately I did not know about it until a friend sent me this photo, otherwise I might have gone across for the presentation.  There are some closer photos HERE.

I started this red and white applique block a few weeks ago.  The plan was to have it as my travel project.  I loved doing it so much, that I finished, and had to get another one started to be my travelling companion.  They are really big blocks  -  24" finished.  I thought it would be perfect for travel, as I only need to take the one piece, and one red thread and one (or two) needles.  Can't put it down!.

Thanks for taking the time to stop in today.  I will be back on deck after 14th September.  We are going to be away for DH special 0 birthday, our wedding anniversary, Fathers Day, and our granddaughters birthday.  So there will be lots of catch up.
