Back from our travels
During the time away we celebrated my DH John's 70's birthday, and our wedding anniversary. This photo was taken in Phnom Penh, in Cambodia. We visited the silver palace in the middle of the city. This palace was a beautiful place, in the middle of a country once ruined by death and destruction. the people are wonderfully resilient. I am still worn out after a week at home, and hope it will pass soon.
We hit the ground running. As soon as we got home we found that there had been a power cut and our refrigerator was now really stinky with mouldy food (the small amount in there) and the freezer had gone rotten. No knowing how long it had been out......maybe a week......certainly long enough to make a real mess. We are making a claim on our insurance. I have cleaned it 3 times and can not get the smell out!
So now, I am back in the real world, and trying to get things back to normal. I was away for the Royal Adelaide Show and had my daughter drop off my quilt for entry. I found that I had won a second place.
I was not able to take a photo, but there is one here at Hettie's Patch
Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine. That was a nice surprise! I knew it was coming up, but could not remember how soon.
I am trying to "take it easy" and just get some hand sewing done, working on the red and white cut outs
There is one more block to go in Past Reflections, and hopefully I will get that done some time this week. Keep an eye out.
