Happy  Australia  Day

Now on to the serious sewing stuff.
Not that the country's nationl day isn't important. It is . In fact my daughter Heather was the only baby born at my hospital  on Australia Day 1973 who's name didn't make reference  to James Cook. Heather and family are on their way over for bday lunch as I write. SNL's birthday is tomorrow.

Ah cake and more cake yummmm


The cutting comes first. 8 quilting friends are swaping 2" strip sets.

Lots of ironing.

And stitching. I' m really enjoying making friends with my Featherweight.

A full day later.
   Because the family paused for celebrations and sleep over.  Grampa and the GC's are out to get fish and chips so I 'm cutting more strips.

I refuse to do the math I do not want to know how many 2 " squares are needed to make 8 bundles of 72 (3 square) strip sets until I finish. Right now I know the number is big........... the up side is
1. Using stash
2. Getting just as many back
3. Lots of the fabrics will be different than mine
4. Fun sharing with other quilters

All such reasons to cut, stitch, and press over and over so back to it for now. Hope your all having a good day.    Terry

Great Night Out

GD and I started the evening traveling by car, train and light rail to reach a dinner destination.   The occasion a trip to town for a concert. The tickets came from Santa.

Waiting for dinner at Darling Harbour. The rain started just as we finished so donned plastic rain coats and made our way to the Star. 

The happy snap of us in our 2cellos t-shirts was taken the next morning.

It was a long evening but well worth it. Awen plays cello and was enthralled.  They play ROOCK CELLO.  Checkout u-tube.

A great night of memories.
