Coil Bag

Went to a workshop at Peak Hill yesterday run by Kerry Swane Cottage On The Hill and produced this coil bag. Once you have done the ironing it is fun to make. Thanks Peg for taking me there and Kerry K and Cath J for their company.

My Garden Quilt by Lynnette Anderson

Whilst we were at GDITC last weekend I realised I had a kit for Lynnettes My Garden quilt. I decided that I should make it for show and tell next year so here is my first block. I used the new tools for the needle turn applique, I need to practice. Peg has the same kit,  she has already done some blocks so I need to catch up.

The quilt was made as a quilt as you go quilt made in panels. Here is how you join each section together with a bind.Thanks to Kerry, Peg, who drove Kath and I to Nundle and the rest of the girls .

St Vincent de Paul

Today I sorted my wardrobe. In these bags are 21 pairs of pants and 25 tops and a few other bits and pieces all taken to the St Vincent de Paul clothing bin.
Sad to say I have probably got this much left again, but I have to keep something to wear.

I am sure I am not alone in trying to get rid of  "STUFF" that is of no use to you.I have started on my de-cluttering journey. I started last Saturday, and have vowed to do a draw or a shelf in a cupboard everyday. So far I have managed it.
This is my bedside cabinet drawer after I have finished.

                                                          Another drawer sorted.

 Just one of the few wardrobes I have to do. Wish me luck, I have a terrible time throwing things away. Putting it on the blog will keep me on track.

School Holidays

During the school holidays my two youngest grandsons came to stay, I knitted them some fuzzy feet. We had a great time, went to the movies , to the park, played golf and took the dogs for long runs. They live in Sydney so they love coming to the country.
