I have been busy over the last few weeks with work and my hubby's mother, she has been diagnosed with mild dementia and can no longer live in her home and was admitted to hospital. My DH and I have been travelling backwards and forward to NewCastle to visit her, and try to a find a suitable aged care facility for her, tragic circumstances, as his mother is resistant to leaving her home and it has now been taken out of her hands. Old age is difficult, when you can no longer be independent and care for yourself, a prospect that we all will have to face at some times in our lives.
What have I been up to In between Christmas festivities! hand sewn on the yellow hexagons to frame my picture prints, made one big lozenge. Now for a number of multicoloured hexagons to make a rectangle.
Hung my stick chandelier and added some glass blown baubles and tea lights
Finished the batik quilt started at the beginning of the year and now given to the quilter to be quilted with an all over butterfly design. Maybe a gift for a Neice !
My "Texas Wheel" quilt all completed with quilting and binding, this is quite a large quilt, measuring 2.7 mtrs by 3 mtrs, very pleased with the end result.
I have been busy making baby quilts over the last few months as a number of babies have been born at my work, mostly girls and a set of twin girls, so a great time to get creative and make quilts, below are Emily and Lauren on their little quilts that I made for them.
