a friend brought a gift, a pear and a pig !
another a tree, another a bird to match a bird i had already !
and a phone call also brought some not so welcome news, the place i have called home for these past ten months had been sold and, yes, i have to move ! sound familiar, this time last year i was in exactly the same position ! well last week was a happy week and i won the rental raffle and have another to move to very early in the new year ! i am going with the theory of third time lucky !
so packing now in between some stitching, we all seem to be adding borders, this being my next border to my margaret sampson george project !
simone has the fabric for her next border
denise is filling up her centre beautifully before adding the next border to hers
all the colours are so lovely and i love the addition of the black and white stripe !
this is my version of 'the humble house' pattern by trish harper, i had fun with mine using spots, checks and stripes ! it still needs another border, then on the quilting pile ! the pattern is available from my side bar, have a look and see the others too, still time to post them before christmas !
and i must finish my blue and white, or get started on it again would be the truth of the matter !
a dull and very wet day here today, i have two native frangipani trees growing at my front entrance and though spectacular six or seven weeks ago when i came back from hobart, do they ever stop flowering and dropping ! very slippery under foot and my car gets covered in them each day. this was taken just before i swept my entrance for the second time today.
still if that's my worst complaint for the day, i'm fortunate ! thinking of those close to me who are very sick and its christmas, not much joy really for some.
my december page on the calendar had a nice message !!!
