Still stitching

 I am still plodding along with my stitching plans. My United stitches quilt is getting sewn into rows and I do love the Tilda fabrics and how they look with the stitcheries. Here are the first three rows.

I am still enjoying the cross stitch. This is another small stocking in the making.
We have been so fortunate here to be able to catch up with people still. It has been so tough for Melbourne and so exciting that things are opening up again. I do feel for my UK friends as they lock down again!! Hope you all have lots of stitching supplies!! Great to see this lovely pin cushion that Roni finished recently.
We have had very good rain and the garden has been enjoying it very much. Here are some of the flowers that hubby has photographed.

Ma visiting

 It was fun to catch up with Ma a few weeks ago. She had been on a road trip with her daughter Janelle out to Griffith and other central west places. They had a great time and when they returned it was fun to catch up with her at Janelle's place.

Here are a few of Ma on her adventure. She really is amazing for 89 years old.

Saturday, October 31, 2020 the rain

 It is pouring with rain here as it is in lots of other places. Great stitching weather really and the garden loves it. Great to catch up with the afternoon girls on Wednesday. Jayne had made a gorgeous runner using Anni Downs' lovely Christmas bag pattern.

Roni has finished this amazing knitted rug! She says she isn't a knitter!!!!

I have been having fun cross stitching. It is easy to take places and a bit of fun. Nice to stitch some decorations ready for Christmas.

As I am piecing my blocks to make up my United stitches quilt, it was nice to draw up and prepare the label.
It does pay off to head into the sewing room regularly and sew a few blocks. The 16 patch blocks are done and I am now working on the easier 4 patch ones.

Little break away

 Last week we headed away from home for the first time since February. It seemed so strange even to pack a bag for just a few days away. We headed to Milton and explored Hyams Beach and Huskisson as well as Ulladulla and a lovely visit to Fiona in Bawley Point. It was far too cool for swimming but it was nice to sit on the sand and see the ocean. 

Bruce got up early and even managed to see a whale tail!

Growing up

 Haven't posted the littlies for a while. We minded them a few times over the holidays and here are a few pictures of them.
