Graduation.

This happened yesterday!






Do you remember all of this posts about finishing assignments. Well yesterday I proudly robed up and walked the stage to be greeted by the prochancellor of Australian Catholic University where he gave me a certificate congratulating me on my achievement.
I had my degree and results sent to me last year.

Easter Ling weekend

Happy Easter all my friends. It has been a glorious weekend. Temperature has been wonderful. My daughter was home from uni for the weekend so this mum is very happy.

I enjoy using instagram and came across a group, All People Quilt. Anyway they have a year long UFO challenge. You record 12 UFOs and number them 1-12. They draw a number and you can work on that project, you may or may not finish and that's okay. But.... so far for 2017 everything I have listed I have finished. This month is no exception.

Number 11 was for the month and I had my Trip Around the World assigned to it. Most of the fabrics were cut out. So I had to finish cross cutting the strips and start making units. I needed nine.
So I have spent some time working on this project. I even spent time reverse sewing after joining a section the wrong way.


Today I sewed my last unit together and finished the quilt top. I was unsure of how it would fit on my bed but it fits well. I think I am gong to add a dark purple border and bind with the dark purple. But it already hangs over the edge.





The quilt is square but being a shorty it is hard to photograph.

Now to pull out another UFO. My flannel quilt.

I am still here - just

Been a manic time over the past three weeks. Traveling around western New South Wales. Only home long enough to pack a bag, attend meetings and professional learning.

Last week I was away for the whole week and nearly didn't get home as the road was closed due to the rain we have had over such a short time.

I have been trying so hard to change my way of life. Walking, eating and throwing in some exercise. I have a work colleague to walk with and an a email friend who inspires me regularly. Small changes are taking effect but certainly needs to be a long term projects.

My temperature quilt.

Friends for Xmas all done.

Initial Heart Swap

This year I joined in to the fun swap hosted by Cheryll.
You had to make something that had a heart and an initial and send something nice.

Well I was blown away with my gifts from Anna.








This mini is just adorable.
Thanks Anna and. Cheryll.
