10 more sleeps................

................until the big move!

We are slowly becoming submerged under the mountain of boxes. Every day I become a wee bit more ruthless and toss stuff into the recycling box, trying to grasp the meaning of "downsize".

Amidst all this excitement we will be off to a Silver Wedding BBQ on Saturday - weather permitting as always. Allan's brother Iain & wife Karyn will be our hosts and having lived in Oz for about 7yrs, are experts at tossing shrimps on the barbie (not necessarily under a brollie tho')

Anyway, as promised here is my wallhanging which started life as leftovers from the quilt I made for them a year or so back. The eagle-eyed amongst you might also spot some of the fabric from our next years project, once again, Moda Fig Tree range, love it.

My original title for the quilt is "25 Hearts" and is a copy of the one I made for our own 25th, 5yrs ago (eek!!)....this one has a few extras as I have made use of my lovely embroidery machine to make a couple of the hearts and also to do the label.

So, my machines are all packed and ready for their new home, no more sewing for a while..........oh, except for another wee project I have been working on - I picked up an old wicker workbox at our Bring and Buy and have enjoyed restoring its lining and top, hope you like it.....

no prizes for guessing which fabric I used..................................


  1. I am running out of complimentary adjectives - you never cease to amaze!

  2. I love the heart quilt and sewing basket!!! Really nice!
