Pink and pretty


I received a text message yesterday with this photo of my very happy, 8 year old niece, who had been sewing some squares together in her first sewing project. It is fantastic to see the younger generation learning to sew, and I have to say well done to her dad, who was the one to take her to the patchwork shop, and to show her how to use the sewing machine! The machine that you can see on the table in the photo was my very first, a gift from my parents for my 18th birthday, and is an Elna. Still goes well and has had lots of use over the years.


I had hoped to have finished the white quilt by now, but yesterday was busy when my cousin came back to load up more furniture. I only have one more border to quilt, and then it will be onto the binding.


I better get too and start my day as there is lots on the agenda. I was woken up at 5am this morning with the joyful sound of the kookaburras. I love the early mornings listening to the birds singing. But I will admit to finding my bed before it’s dark in the evenings. I am not a night person at all. Maybe that is because of years of early morning rising to milk cows?

Blessings, From Jude

Well done to your niece and her Dad for helping. Hope you'll show that white quilt before it goes as I'm wondering what you quilted on it. I usually wake to the sound of magpies or corellas here. Warragul was where we had lots of kookaburras, but we never hear them here. Too built up I expect. Take care.
