A little bit of this and that.....................

Dearest Mom and Dad
So, here's the thing.........................I have not posted much over the last couple of weeks because my life has been filled with frivolous nonsense - lots of catching up with friends over tea, lunch, dinner etc...................... frivolous but lekker!! It's a good thing that I got in some socialising in because I am going to be a busy person again.

You know how I love to teach crazy and it always makes my heart sing when I see my "students" work and how much they enjoyed the whole crazy experience.
Lenore had her completed crazy to show me when I went to teach at Caloundra this week.
Pop onto www.sewsocrazy.blogspot.com to see more of her beautiful work.
 

I went to "A Piece of Cloth" trunk show a few weeks ago and managed to purchase this lovely quilt made in the 1930 -40's all hand stitched.


I do enjoy the combination of fabrics. I will hand quilt this...........sometime.


George has been misbehaving since I came back from Sydney - basically he howls when I am not home. So, I have been trying to exhaust him - this photo of our footprints are an indication of our relationship. He never leaves my side - so much so that I tripped over him when I got back from Sydney and smashed the glass on my ipad - DAMN!!!!


Jane has been visiting her daughter in New Zealand fro a few weeks - I am not the only one missing her. This is her cat sitting in her sewing room window waiting for her home coming!!


As I told you, Button was coming home to go to her friend's baby shower, but due to the filming of the series she is in "lockdown" for the next 6 weeks. Who knew????
Anyway, one of the baby shower gifts was this little hand painted mug from South Africa.


I also managed to find a Bunnykins bowl in an antique shop. I could not resist these hand embroidered socks etc.


Too cute! Very old school, though.


And then I did not have a label to attach to the parcel so I rustled this up - not my best work - that's because Jane was not here!!!


And here is Jess!!

 
All my love
Jenny
