To all the Emails I have received thank you, I and my family are all well although we are a bit over all this rain. The clean up has started in Brisbane and I am so proud to call my self a Aussie as people from all walks of life are putting on their Gumboots and grabbing their shovels to help remove all the mud and damaged possessions of complete strangers that where affected by the floods. Although I am unable at the moment to get down there to help I tried to give in other ways. I never thought I would live to see something this terrible in a place I love.

So with the sunshine today I decided to have a airing of the quilts as they really needed it with all the rain and humidity that has been around. Now on collecting all my quilts together I was amazed with how many I had .

Now this is only a quarter of my quilts but I only have a small clothes line and could not get them all out so hopefully we will have the sun for a few days to get all the others aired. I thought maybe I should donate some to the flood victims but which ones as they all have a special place in my heart , like the first one I ever made or the quilt that got me a job working with Lillian. Oh this will be a hard decision but I think it is time to send some away and hopefully to a home that will love it as much as me . Hope all of you are well where ever you are and happy sewing.

What a fun week I have had I decided that I am going to do a queens size whole cloth in the coming week, but before I tackle that one I deiced to have a go at making a smaller one . I have to say what fun and I learned a lot, I'm sure I have more to learn but I know feel confident in taking on the queen size now. So what do you think ?

This is a close up of the center.
I have had a lot of fun with this quilt and it already has a home lol .They never stay long after they are finished , its getting to the stage where I have to frisk the family after they have been to visit.
The school holidays are coming to a close fast, which is sad but also good ( well for my sanity it is ). The boys have enjoyed them so far and now that the rain has stopped they are enjoying it more with trips to the beach . Happy sewing and I hope all have had a great start to the new year .
