brrrr….it’s cold today.

It doesn’t snow here….but cold just the same.❄️🌬

here now!

I know I have been missing from my blog, but now I intend to be back. Even though I haven’t posted for a while I still do some stitching.

The past 18 months has been difficult time. I have had breast cancer. Surgery, chemo and radio therapy. But now I’m starting to feel much better. I’m a little sad about COVID, as it hasn’t allowed life to return to normal after having chemo, we have been staying close to home.

Hexie flower swap…

I keep meaning to update my blog, but the day gets busy and than becomes another day I didn’t take photos of my stitching. So today when hexagon flowers arrived from Ruthanne I took photos and now I’m posting.These pretty flowers are from Ruthanne.These flowers are from Shannon.And this is the stack of flowers I have received from around the world!I’m not sure how I want to put them together, I had one idea but now seem to have changed my mine. I was going to surround them with different coloured shot cottons, but now I’m not so keen on that.I really do want to blog regularly, I loved it when I was.

New Year…

Wishing all a happy new year…

My plan for this year is to blog more and regularly.   I received a new camera for Christmas, so I am excited to take pictures, again.  Though I did take this picture of the new baby kookaburra with my old camera.  The baby kookaburra came out of his nest on Christmas eve with lots of noisy excitement from the parents.fullsizeoutput_d5


just some pictures…

There has been sunshine and rain this week, the days have been everything from warmer to freezing cold and in no particular order.   Longing for spring and warmer days and sunshine instead of grey skies.

The early morning sun was shining through the trees and throwing a shadow of the lantern, that hangs on the veranda, onto the window.   I tried to photograph the shadow, if you look carefully, there is a shadow.

This is our local young kookaburra, he just quietly waits around.  He was also enjoying the sunshine.

Then we had 24 hours of constant heavy rain…

These little birds found a dry place…

And the sun is shinning today…and hopfully it will be a little warmer.

New book!

I just received this new book by Margaret Sampson George in the mail and love it.

I have started the quilt on the cover after going to her workshop, a while back.  Now I need to get it out and work some more on it. Her quilts are very inspiring, to try new and different designs.

shopping today…

Went shopping today for food and new table setting.  First it was to a favourite shop for place mats, that I seen on an earlier visit.



Than I thought these coasters would match nicely…

And off to the shopping centre for food and this new dinner set…




It’s Maxwell and Williams new Orient dinner set…so pretty with it’s mix and match pattern.

My blogging has been so absent lately, and the plan is to blog more often, mostly just about everyday things.  I do miss regularly blogging.
