Play Time

This quilt is mine. I am using to expand my skills.
A practise quilt. I am delighted how it is coming along and
absolutely love the texture of the quilting.


Boxing Day 2012

On Boxing Day my husband and I went on a bus and boat trip
to Sydney Harbour for the start of the annual Sydney to Hobart
Yacht Race.

The boat above is Wild Oats who won the race.
This is the Wangi Queen Showboat which was a local ferry for
many years on our Lake. It was sold and moved to Sydney not
long before Christmas. We were delighted to see it go past.

Xmas 2012

My family is well known for loving a fancy dress Christmas
My granddaughter was dressed as a plum pudding and looked adorable.

My quilt group do a placemat swap each christmas.
This was the one I made

Merry Christmas


Beach holiday

We had a holiday down the South Coast in November
and the kangaroos were as friendly as ever.

This fantastic circus quilt was quilted with a
large meander to keep the quilt soft
