My 2

City to Bay 

Gemma and Lucas walked the City to Bay this morning. I dropped them into the city at 8:00am. Lucas got home at 5:00am so is not looking too bad for 2 hours sleep.
Gemma thought she had had a good week :
she has learnt to conjugate verbs in Spanish(she and Sean are learning Spanish), 
she has learnt how to decorate cup cups 
and has walked 12 Km.

City to Bay

I don't think my 2 look at all alike.

Red and White quilt tick

Tony's quilt

I put the last piece in Tony's red and white quilt last night.
I have really enjoyed making this quilt it is a Sue Daley pattern.
I really enjoy paper piecing.

Tony's quilt

We saw this quilt when we were in Qld last year, we were in Eumundi and I had the pleasurable task of visiting Sue for the shop.
Tony very rarely comments on quilts but he did on this one.
Now he has his own I am not sure how I will quilt it.

new skirt

You can not get good help these days.
This is Tony taking a photo of me supposedly with no head but oh well
----- me again twice in one year.
Shame about the weeds in the back ground.

New skirt

this one happened because I was walking towards him.
The skirt is a Nicki pattern and like all her patterns is very easy to follow.
I wore it to work today and got quite a few comments.
Thanks to my friend who lives around the corner for her invisible zipper foot.
I must get one when I am next at Otto's.

Pin cushion

I joined the Label crew here and each month you get set a pattern and a set of very cute labels.
This was my first pattern and I just love this fabric.

Pin Cushion

each month you get a label with your name on it.
