Catching up

It's been quite a while since I spent time here. A lot has happened, but I'll start from today.
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
