Boxing Day

I didn't have a box ready to give to the tradesmen or house hold help . Tradition goes back to the Middle Ages.
So spent the day and the next stitching up a storm getting a box ready for today's post.

I don't know the person it will go to or where he is. I do know he deserves a quilt and a whole lot more just because. He's not at home for Christmas just somewhere serving his country.
D.H. pronounced it a blokes quilt and it is. An Aussie quilt of animals and green and gold. I will post it with a package of Tim Tams and be happy.  Can you see me smiling?


I wanted a small seasonal project. In years gone past I baked lots to sustain the feeling of Christmas. This year with fewer family there was no need.
I took up the hook and made some decorations. The blue star has gone home with DD #2. cause it was funky. Guess I'll make some more.

I'm off to stitch some 2/12" strips together for my parts dept. Enjoy whatever your up to.

Love, Ria.

I'm sure the Australian soldier that receives your quilt will be thrilled with it. Good on you Terry!!!

Love how you used the nature print in the bloke's quilt. Looks so cheerful with all the earth colors.
