In March I attended a quilt sew-in in Hobart, Tasmania with several great designers and we stitched and sewed several items. We also did a lot of sight seeing, shopping and chatter amongst ourselves. It was a really fun time and in 2013 it will be held in Adelaide.

Sitting at the dinner table my DD thought I had better ring mum and give her time to make something (Leonie couldn`t sew a stitch if her life depended on it), at the same time Charlie said "Lets ring nan, she can make something for me to wear." We thought a clown or a cowboy might be nice and Charlie thought a cake would be good, dont you love em. With a little persausion from dad it was decided the cowboy would be fine. Charlie has jeans, western shirt and boots so it was left to me to finish his outfit. Above is the vest, kerchief and gun holster I have made and the Peacemaker 6 shooter that had belonged to my younger brother. After the parade I will post a photo of Charlie in all his glory.

I have returned from Sydney and brought a virus with me. Felt down for a couple of days but better now. My two little girls were very excited to see their Nan and we did some sewing. We hand sewed some little birds in felt and silly me forgot to take a photo. We also made some bracelets and some hanging hearts out of fabric and beads, again forgot to take photos. Lots of playing and reading and playing CATOPOLY, just like monopoly but geared around cats. Also played the card game Go Fish and I could not win a game and this pleased my card playing GD`s very much. Did shopping and went to Darling Harbour for the day, will talk about that later. The girls also each made a placemat for their mum`s Birthday and were very pleased with themselves. We wrapped them and hid them in their bedrooms until the day. I must remember to ring and remind them the night before so they dont forget to give them to mum.
Here are Jade and Brooke displaying the placemats.
Jade has always loved to sew with Nan and misses our sewing lessons since the family moved to NSW for dad`s work. Here she is happily sewing a placemat for her mum`s birthday later this month.
Brooke has only just started to sew and seems to enjoy it. She did lots of practice following lines on paper to learn to sew in straight lines. She picked it up fairly quickly and only needed a little help to turn corners when sewing her placemat. The sewing machine is a baby Elna that I bought and took over for them to practice sewing on. Luckily it was not heavy as I carried it my hand luggage. When I went through the Airport security I was asked what is it and told them it was a little sewing machine for my GDs and they just waved me through. I had been a liitle bit worried as to what I would have done with it if they said I couldnt carry on board. Bye for now Jude

An outside view of the van. It is very clean and has been well looked after. I really like the pull down awning on the side, it makes a nice place for a cuppa and pice of cake when you need a rest from all the fishing and sight seeing.
I am off to Sydney next week to visit with Megan, Mark, Jade and Brooke and when I return home DH and I will be going to Kingston SE for a bit to try out the new van. till then cheerio and all be good. Jude.

Happy New Year to all my Family and Friends and may it be a Happy and Prosperous one.
These are the place mats and drink coasters I made for my DD to adorn the Xmas table and luckily they were the last I had to do. There is 5 of each and unless we have more babies this will be enough for when her turn comes around again. Lucky for me my three DDs take turns to host Xmas and I just have to turn up and enjoy myself. I loved this Australian print and was glad I could make it up for us all to enjoy. Bye for now and I will try to post more often this year, but not until next month as I am off to Sydney to spend time with Megan( my eldest daughter and Jade and Brooke and their dad).
