After a week in Toowoomba and some quilting lessons for my sister who I am trying to convert, I flew home and onto finishing some more UFO's.
My sisters completed table runner, a small quilting lesson in cutting, stitch in the ditch, binding and a little hand quilting, not a bad job sister dear.
October...I had my cabin built which I hope to use as a quilting room, actually It was built to hold all my fabric! And I hope to be able to quilt as well in the cabin.
It took 1 month to be painted, as it was raw timber, and needed 3 coats each of undercoat and top coat.
I also completed my version of the Springwood quilt show 2012 raffle quilt, "Homage".
I have called mine " Heathton" named after our house and the name is derived from the combination of mine and DH names.
I found this little treasure at a flea market, when I pulled the seat apart to recover it, I found newspapers from 1936. The stuffing was kapok.
I also dabbled with some garden art, from some great op shop finds.
November, I completed this quilt as a gift for my sisters 60th
I painted a sign for my daughter in law, added a sketch of their puppy "Knuckles"
I Gave my oldest sister Jenny a 60th birthday party, with the help of my sister Esme and brother Peter on the 5th December, a great time was had by all and the perfect opportunity to catch up with some relatives, not seen for awhile.
A time to bid farewell to a very busy year, here's to a healthy and happy new year and I cannot wait to see what the new year has in store me.
