John's 70th Quilt

I decided a while back (about 2 years) to make this quilt for DH's 70th Birthday. As I wanted it as a surprise I could only work on it outside the house - so many group days and retreat days were used to make sure I got it done on time...and of course I had to fit it between all those other projects.

Finally it is finished and handed over to John.



The pattern is Truly Aussie designed by Helen Stubbings of Hugs & Kisses.  
There are a few sayings that I don't think I have heard before but they all add to the interest.

Now onto all that Secret Stuff  . . . .

FNSI - October [sort of]

It seems the only time I post is for FNSI or FNWF - and this time I didn't even sign up - I knew there wouldn't  be much sewing time tonight...but I did go through my container of buttons - I need a LOT of buttons for something and fished these out - a restful half an hour or so.

I hope everyone else was happy & productive - thanks to Wendy again for coordinating and hopefully next month will see some "real" sewing.  I'll try to visit a few people but its a busy weekend.

Friday Night With Friends - October

October already??? - eek it will be December soon...very scary.

Over Thursday, Friday & Saturday I made these blocks - they are for some quilts being made for the victims of some recent extreme domestic violence situations in South East Queensland.  Very sad for all involved.
