This and That

I know I have been notably absent for some weeks what with one thing or another. Life just does that sometimes. So.......what have I been doing for the last few weeks?

 I have completed block two of Bric-a-Brac

 and block 7 of Edwardian House.

We all travelled to Melbourne for my MIL's 90th birthday party

Miss M walking ahead of me in the Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne....a beautiful park that reminds me so much of the London parks.

Back to sewing

My Garden is slowly getting the borders added onto it but I did one block incorrectly and will have to do some dreaded reverse sewing before I can continue.

I have picked out some fabrics from my stash
and together with my new book
am going to make the quilt on the cover called "Spaghetti Junction"

I have also traced the first block of "Long Time ago in Bethlehem"

All this inbetween various Christmas parties, Christmas shopping, extended trade hours at work and Christmas decorating.

My dear friend Helen and I at our work Xmas Party.  We were part of a group of 6 dressed as Angels.

Last picture....I promise.  This is our Christmas Tree this year. Miss M decorated it for me as directed in red and white.  It looks stunning, especially with the lights on.


  1. Lovely stitching and the angel outfit is adorable! Remember to get some rest with all that you do. Have a great week.

  2. Very nice stitching! Have fun with your Spaghetti Junction too! Love your tree. We have our tree up and decorated, but the rest of the holiday decor is still in boxes around our home. Have't had the chance yet, and the kids are asking for their stockings! I enjoyed seeing your Angel photo too. Have a great day!

  3. Wow Cath, you have been productive. All your stitching is beautiful. I love the Garden block, hugs Wendy
