My year has been quite productive and eventful with lots of travel and many quilts completed, as well as the birth of our first grandchild, I have a lot to be thankful for. On the work front, changes are being made, in the middle of 2016 NETS will be relocating to Bankstown, a further distance to travel for me, looks like my day will be starting even earlier now.
Let's look at what quilts and travel I have completed this year.
January I travelled to Japan and visited the Tokyo quilt show.
February, I finished Field of Dreams and Birds in a basket, I picked them up from the quilter in April just in time to be entered into the Springwood quilt show.
I traveled April, May and June to France, spent time in Nantes to attend Pour L'Amour du Fil, then onto Paris, England, Wales, Scotland, Spain ,Portugual Morrocco and Abu Dhabi.
I made a panel quilt for my grandson, first of many, his mummy is fascinated by monkeys.
Many more followed, Woodland Creatures, made for a friend.
" Henry", oh and can you tell, she likes cats.
August I dabbled with Zen doodling and made a couple of cushions for presents.
August the 15th our gorgeous grandson was born, pure contentment on Sarah's face.
I Picked "Geisha Girls" up from the quilter, I actually completed this quilt in April as well, I had it custom quilted which took 4 months, now bound and completed.
In September I travelled to Toowoomba for Festival of flowers and visited 3 quilt shows as well as spend some quality time with my sister.
