I can't believe it is so long since I last posted! I have been busy and have just completed the Santa from the Tilda book, Homemade and Happy. I have been wanting to make him for a while but he was such a lot of work though I do love the result. First there was quite a bit of applique.
And....ta dah....here he is!
Best get organised as classes start today for fourth term! I might take Santa for show and tell.

It is Floriade time in Canberra now and I have been twice over the last few weeks. The first time there were hardly any tulips but last week, quite a few have come out. We enjoyed seeing them with Alice and her mummy on Tuesday. We even went on the ferris wheel!

Finally a few finishes to share. I sent this quilt off to Robyn recently. It was stitched from about 2008 when I bought it as a block of the month. It was for an eventual grandchild. Little miss Alice will use it when she gets a big bed. It was great fun to make but I didn't get round to adding borders till this year!
I was also pleased to finish my knitted cardigan.

It was inspiring at sewing on Wednesday as Lynne came to class with some wonderful finishes. Here is her gorgeous bag ready to use.
This morning Alice, Mummy and I visited the Handmade market in Canberra. There were some beautiful things there.....gorgeous clothing, jewelry and much more. It was all very tempting.

It was so special to catch up with Fiona, Rose and Sue this past weekend for some stitching and of course, too much food! It has been ages since we have been together so it was very special. Thanks to Fiona and Rose for coming to chilly Canberra and thanks to Sue for hosting such a lovely day.
In the evening we headed to a local restaurant for a yummy meal.
Then on Sunday morning we met for breakfast at the Kingston Foreshore and then had a great time at the Bus Depot Markets. There was just a little bit of shopping!
I did make this little pear for Fiona as well.
Thanks, girls, for a great time.
