Thanks to those who have visited me in the past, and especially to those who have taken the time to leave comments.
I'm sure that I will continue to look at your blogs, but am really not interested in doing my own.
Take care, Patch.

It was a Christmas gift for a work friend who plays the violin. She uses the bag to carry her music in to rehearsals,. I am happy that she likes it enough to use it in public.
'Scrap Basket Rose' is in a bag waiting to go to the quilter's. I hope to get it there next weekend all going well.
Take care everyone.

I took the advice of my clever blogging friends and completed the stars for my first border.
I decided to go with a narrow cream border next and finally a darker blue border - it is hard to see as the bed has a navy valance on it.
I am really pleased with the finished product as it contains fabrics that I have been collecting since I started patchwork. The only fabrics that I bought especially for it have been the blue for the final border and the backing.
Thanks to 'The Material Girls' who each made 3 blocks of the quilt - I hope you like it too.
I'll post a photo of it when it returns from the quilter in a couple of months.
Bye for now.

A few days in Sydney catching up with family and 2 weeks at Port Macquarie relaxing on the beach.
I made this cushion for a couple who I work with who had their first bub in January - a little boy named Gus.
Back to work tomorrow!!! That will be a huge shock to my system.
The scrap basket rose quilt has nearly had its first border done and only 2 to go to be ready for quilting. I hope to do the remaining borders next weekend.
Bye for now.

I honestly could not believe what was in there - so many beautiful goodies!
- a christmas decoration
- a chook ( I wonder if the blue face is because chookyblue organised the swap?)
- a great bag
- some yummy fat 1/4s
- a mini duster for my sewing machine
I am making slow but steady progress on my flower basket quilt and hope to post it's status in a day or two.
Take care until then.

No pictures today though as the batteries in my camera are flat and I don't have any spares!!
I have received a lovely secret santa prezzie from Kylie in my patchwork group, and a pincushion from 'The Cottage On the Hill' pincushion swap and can't share them with you. I will get to it later this week.

It is usually VERY hot here on Christmas Day. We have a hot lunch anyway.
Roast pork, turkey, ham and loads of roast potatoes, pumpkin and sweet potato, with green vegetables too.
For dessert we have Pavlova (very Australian) and Tiramisu (very Italian).
We always wear some sort of silly hat to get us in the festive spirit.
Here my sons are wearing inflatable reindeer hats. They may never speak to me again after they see this post!!
Only 24 sleeps until Christmas.
Thanks to http://email@example.com for suggesting the Christmas theme. I am enjoying seeing how others celebrate Christmas.
I had lunch yesterday with a fellow blogger, Bluberyy Lane Designs as she was at my workplace for the day. It was great to catch up.
I am away on a school excursion next week to Nambucca Heads so will not be posting for at least 10 days.
Bye for now.
