Baby Quilt

My oldest niece Gretchen and her partner Dave have just beome proud parents to Isaac William. So it was time for a quilt. I had previously started my Kaffe Fasset quilt with one baby in mind, but it grew a little too big. So at the weekend I found some scrappy bargello blocks that I had made and by making one more block, Hey Presto a baby quilt. Well it will be when its finished. I added a black & white border. Bright and cheery don't you think.

Walking the Dog

Todays photo is of Sheean Walk. This is where you will find me and the dog most afternoons after work. It used to be the train line, now it is a walking track that goes from the main street down to the river. It is named after a local war hero. There is usually something interesting to see while walking. I've seen platypus in the creek, echidnas, all sorts of birds rabbits and even a wallaby.Rexi would like to chase the rabbits but isn't allowed!

Happy New Year

Perhaps my New Years resolution should be to post on a more regular basis. We can but try. I usually spend too much time reading others blogs. But I have been doing some sewing, quilting my William Morris quilt. I've outlines all of the applique shapes, then did free form feathers around the applique and now I'm quilting the borders. Straight line for them at 3/4 inch. Now I am going to walk the dog. She missed her walk yesterday. Life got in the way.
