Where did October go?

You would think I had nothing to blog about!

Do I catch up all in one go… and bore you all? .. Yes!

In the past 8 weeks I've had…..
3 retreats
2 weddings
1 funeral
A walk up Mt Kosciuszko
A visit to the Starlight room
A visit to the Supreme Court
A few weekends on the farm
A conference at Port Macquarie
And a weeks work in Inverell
But partridge in a pear tree!….

First…. A quilt finish….Wendy Williams designed 'Two's Company' for a special little Great God Child…. (if there is such a thing).. Harrison Charles.  I Loved making this!!

 A workshop in Newcastle with the lovely Marg Sampson George…very inspiring .. but I still haven't made a start!

 Di Ford was another lovely tutor at Cottage Quilt Works …working on the Morell Quilt

This is my effort so far...

                                   Retreat at Middlebrook Station near Scone

 Fox quilts were the order of the day..One in liberty.. one 1930's and one repro prints.


My foxes are finished!!

 A weekend at farm and the cows were impressed with Harrisons quilt.

 Yes.. I even stitch in the dark while having sunset drinks!!

 New boys on the block… meet William and Harry…. our cows were impressed!!

A proud day when DD2 was admitted to the Supreme Court as a Lawyer ...

The Starlight room at the John Hunter Hospital and a presentation of $117,000.00 from our fundraising on our Trek 4 Kidz Bash.

A Wedding in Newcastle... the beautiful Eleanore and Robert

 A few stitching buddies party on!.. can you recognise anyone?.. esp the Mother of the Bride.

And a Wedding at Lake Crackenback…My nephew Andrew and his beautiful bride Emma.. The 1st in the family… so a very happy event and fabulous setting.

What do you do in the Snowy Mountains in summer?… walk up Mt Kosciuszko!..Of course!!.. only 13klms and temps of MINUS 14 degrees C!!
….that is chocolate we are holding!… and Mr Floss has his socks on his hands!!

Unfortunately we had another family event this same weekend when we farewelled our dear Uncle Ken. He was 92 and such a lovely man. A good old farmer who has seen so many changes in his life. I love all his wonderful pictures of farming on his most modern equipment!!

I'd better keep up in future! (This has taken me ages!!)… I hope your happy Chooky!
Till next time
