A night on the town

Wayne and I went to town

La Mint is a long time favorite of ours.  Great green paw paw salad!!

The occasion was the 2012 release of the Beaujolais Nouveau. A very drinkable wine and a great meal.

Suprises in the mail box. A few weeks ago I won a give away at Queen of the Armchair's. The mail was very slow but it did arrive.

Great quilt wrapping paper. Can you see the houses among the stars?

 Inside patterns for some cute stitchery and a wonderful fat quarter. I can think of lots of projects coming up I just need to find the time.

On the sewing front my first design for machine applique.

It took some tweaking but I'm proud of myself. DH got in on the act by suggesting a longer beak and flat head. The magpie is an essential part of my next Aussie Heroes Quilt. The recipient is a AFL fan of Collingwood who's mascot is _______ you guessed a magpie. 

Back to stitching Terry

Dinner sounds delicious! That wrapping paper is of a quilt by Freddie Moran. I've got a book by her and its all house quilts, really wonderful and bright. I love your magpie, it's brilliant!! I showed Phil and he said " Wow, that's really cool!!". Your magpies fan is going to love their quilt!!
