Any way I found my gorilla I made last year. It is raw edge applique quilt from "the pattern place", it only took a day to make and quilt . I brought it because the gorilla has the face both my boys get when they are concentrating on something, not that I'm saying they are gorillas but when I think about it they tend to do a lot of monkeying around or is it just a boy thing .

I do like the blue and yellow, although I don't really use yellow a lot in quilts. I don't know why that is, Do you have a colour that you like and don't tend to use in quilts? I hope you have all had a great week end.

Sorry for not saying hello earlier but it has been one of those weeks, so sad to see my friends off, busy with work and then a trip to the doctors to be told I have Viral Tonsillitis ( I had them taken out when I was 9 go figure). So I'm afraid not much has happened on the quilting front. I was just wondering what type of design walls everyone has. As you can see mine is not to big and is just some wadding pinned on to a quilt. I don't have a lot of wall space in my room and what I do have is made so I can change the quilts quickly.
This is one I'm working on at the moment , when it is together there is big red poppy's going over the top. Lillian sent me the fabric last year and I have been thinking on what to do with it ever since. Dame shame another trip to the quilt shop for the right red to go with it as all the reds I have are a dirty red and I thing it needs a bright. Would love to hear what type of design wall you have. Is it on a wall or like one of my friends on the back of her bedroom door.

This was the first and last big ride I went on as you can see I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Nicholas on the other hand wanted more.
Arndt and Nicholas where ever so brave and went on the big drop (YUKKKKS)

I guess I better start from the began.
A few months ago we organized with some friends who where coming up to stay from Tassy to meet at Dreamworld. This was to be a surprise for our boys, so far I had done well to keep the secret . On the way to Dreamworld I thought I would use my in car charger to charge the battery for my camera ( it came with the camera and I hadn't used it yet).
BANG that was the camera so no pictures to show you of our great day and the boys faces. They had the best day and no idea until we pulled in. Nicholas went on every ride and didn't stop smiling all day. John and I enjoyed the gentler rides and love seeing the Tigers.
The can't believe it came on our return home. We had left at 7 in the morning and returned at 8 pm to find our front door wide open AHHHHH . Some how in the rush to leave this morning we left the front door open . What can I say--------- today has really had its UPS and DOWNS.
How old do you have to be before I can say it was a senior moment?

Well this week I have been busy quilting and working on my ho ho ho ho ( not allowed to talk about it just yet). I have also made a bag for my swap partner, hers is the one on the right with the lace and the other one is one I made for fun. I hope she likes it I wish I was going in its place a holiday would be nice at the moment. Happy sewing
