While some of my work colleagues have been on holiday this month to warmer climes, I’ve had to put up with cold Melbourne weather with only the occasional breaks in cold Melbourne temperatures.
However, my garden did tell me spring is on the way with bulbs coming up
and when out walking, the park showed me this
enough for the hay fever sufferers reach for their tissues and medications.
So, I haven’t got much to show for this month’s blog – other than some sewing. My colleagues, will of course, have blog entries from all sorts of travel locations in the following weeks! (sense a little envy here on my part?!).
First up is my work on the Quilter’s Newsletter Christmas Quilt (as reported on in my blog post last month). I only have to make 20 of these little charmers – and that should be done in a week before the next download pattern comes available. No pressure here!Then I’ve been sewing a challenge quilt – can’t show much of that, except for the fabrics which were purchased in July and the deadline to get this one done is November:I’ve tried to do some more on my ” Birdsville” by Wendy Williams:and help make blocks for a raffle for next year:
and make a block for the guild’s retreat I attend each October with the theme “Step back in time” :
In between times, I have completed a ‘modern’ baby quilt for a yet to be born first baby. I can’t show the finished item yet, as it is a ‘surprise’ for the mum (and dad) to be:
I have brought out the tiny hexagons for another airing at the wholesale trade fair in November. We are organising our display for the Aurifil booth:
And finally, I have started my Christmas sewing (yes, it isn’t that long to go when you make gifts):
All in all, I think I have done a little bit of work this month – but the pile of unfinished items still seems to grow!
