Hallo Everyone!

I've been a bit absent  for a while lately, sorry, but Christmas is catching up and there's birthdays and parties to go to , and shopping to be done and so on and so on....

Have been doing a little sewing, am currently making myself a dress for Christmas - I love a new Christmas dress, don't you!?

We have had two days here of 35 degree and above temperatures!~  It has been so hot, it is like an oven when you have to walk outside.  Apparently, we are now waiting on a storm to roll in, we are watching some black tinged clouds rolling over slowly, so we will see tonight if the weatherman was right. I won't hold my breath!!

Took some pictures of the garden this evening for your viewing pleasure!



I do hope you enjoyed the pics - just imagine what a difference there will be if the rain hits tonight!
Well it is so close to Christmas and I have decided to take a little holiday from blogging, until the New Year.  Well be back during the first week of January 2013.
Alan & I wish all our e - friends a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year.
See you all in 2013.

December Block Swap

I was very surprised today when a knock on the door happened, and it was my swap partner, Kerry, from the Quilting Block Swap Australia, with her December house block for me!

Isn't the palm tree gorgeous?
This was the first house block that Kerry has done, so she has done very well! She was also a very nice person and lives not very far away. Hopefully we will meet up again soon.

Like I keep saying, I am such a lucky person!!

May You Rest Now In Peace

The remains of Daniel Morcombe were laid to rest this day, 9 years after his disappearance.

Please take the time to send love and healing to his family and all those who knew and loved him.

He will always be in our hearts.

Monthly Block Swaps

I think it is time i can show the blocks that I have done for my last two partners in the Down Under quilting Block Swap.
For Sue in November:-

This one was a little too small

So I added this one.
For Tracy in December:-
A disappearing nine patch in black and white. I thought it was rather good!
So now the block swaps are all up to date.

Reverb 2012


Hop over here to visit Kat at I Saw You Dancing, and learn all about Reverb 2012.

The prompt for Day 1 is: How are you starting this last month of 2012?

I am starting this last month of 2012 by getting up to date with all my swap blocks so I can start the new month with a clean slate.  They are done and they are ready to be posted.

Some are even already parcelled up and ready to be posted on Monday. No pictures yet. Not until they are received in their new homes.

There are lots of other things as well, perhaps I shall explore them through the month, but probably as I have said, start this month off with a clean slate. Try and keep it that way through 2013. Big ask??

A picture for Day 1:

Not Long Now!!!
