Today I am taking it easy, following 2 days of refereeing at the District Association Croquet Championships. The weather was cold, windy, and occasionally wet - but the company, competition and morning teas were great.
I was sad and disappointed when International Friendship Quilters closed down. I loved meeting stitchers from all around the world and really enjoyed the project exchanges that I joined. Small items or blocks in a quilt are really special when I recall the wonderful women who made them just for me.
Now I have joined Quilting Block Swaps Australia and have been given my first exchange partner. I'm already sorting through fabrics and patterns to make the best block I can for Helen.
I have given a couple of options, the first being framed scrappy squares.
This is a block under construction [2 more frame pieces are needed] - the possibilities are endless.
I would love to share pictures of my youngest grandchildren and their big, fluffy toys -
Ada and Darwin -
Suriani and Cat -
Alina and Teddy
