Darn Star of Hope blocks and their silly little points!!!  Couldn't possibly be my inaccuracy.

More later if I don't have a mammoth meltdown!

Ok, Here I am.............

A very special someone said to me the other day - and I quote - "I've been looking at your blog and there's not a lot going on......" - well - just a little quick post to say I am still in the land of the living, continuing with a little hand stitching of an evening and hopefully - no, lets make that definately - will load a piccy of a finish on Tuesday (day off for working the weekend).  It may be a slight little 'cheat finish' - like a UFO from last year that only needs 3 tiny tasks to complete - but it still counts :)

So, to all my lovely blogging friends......have a wonderful Sunday and see you all Tuesday xoxoxox

P.S. - is there a limit on how many piccy's to a post......have bought some yummy fabrics - lots to show..............................haven't I Christine? I'll see you Wednesday! xoxox

Empty Granny Flat

Feeling a little flat tonight - put my dear old Dad on the plane back to N.Z. this afternoon........had a sook.....still feel a bit weepy (I know - toughen up)! 

The only upside (if you can call it that), is I now have my granny flat back and can go and sew up a storm (which I definately need to do as I have zero, nil, diddly squat OPAM finishes for March)....yes, have let the side down.  Guess I'm going to have to work way harder in April to make up for it.  Just for the record tho, I'd give my sewing room up anyday for my Dad.

Went for a big cruise up the Tamar (well, not on a boat but in the legendary Camry) - went up to Greens Beach then the touring route back down the river to the city.  Don't know why, but for some reason I was sure there was a quilt shop in Beaconsfield (went into 2 shops to ask directions) and left rather puzzled.....then as we drove across the Batman Bridge I remembered it was in Georgetown (no, my blonde locks are not natural).....didn't make it that far though - but did get into Calico Cottage Crafts (hope I got the name right) in Exeter......could have spent lots and lots of time and lots and lots of money (having husband and father waiting patiently in car curbed that) - but did walk out with a lovely Lynette Anderson pattern for a journal and hexagon purse - and met Pauline :)  It was a lovely day!!  (Going to have to learn how to add links in my text).

Well, best be finished - Wonderful Hubby is serving up dinner.......after which I shall google 'how to make hexagons'.........have a wonderful weekend everyone and see you all Monday night my lovely Material Girl friends (have the day off - may even manage a cake) xoxoxoxox
