some photos to share.


 Woke up and thought omg, is it really holidays?
 Get that sugar level up.... and get ready to go.....YES it is holidays
Are you going to sew all day? Pleeaaase...
 woo hoo I love holidays.....
the sun is shining a nice walk is in order...
A swim for someone... come on throw the ball!


Back to some sewing.....

My little houses have been calling me....
I was a little enthusiastic putting the borders on I need to make another lot of little houses for the bottom row that doesn't require sashings with corner stones at the bottom. Prefer to make new houses than un sew. This will make a total of 64 houses. A lovely little hanging.

A start has been made on this quilting too... It is progressing quite quickly which I am very happy about.
I am meeting up with the recipient again on thursday. Wonder if I can out do myself and get it done by then?
No pressure....
Sun is shining here in Melbourne and we are expecting a top of 24. Lovely weather!
Have I mentioned I love Holidays?
Happy sewing..
Marina

If you stop playing around and concentrate on the task at hand I have full confidence that you will finish. But if you get distracted by the joy of holidays, I really don't know…. Enjoy.

Hello Marina,

I bet it was fun on that swing, haven't been on one of those for years. It won't be long and those little houses will be a village.

Happy holidays.

Are you sure it is the holidays??? What a wonderful day out for you and Coffee. Was very sorry to hear about Monty. You little blocks are so cute....did you find a pattern for the shirt challenge???? I know it is a secret but I thought what with it being the holidays you might be relaxed and slip up!!
