Civil War Quilt Block

This is this weeks block. The first time that I have used green in this quilt. A very easy block to do. The weather today was very windy and wet so I had it done before lunch.

My lovely angel Susan . A hard working angel too. I didn't have a clue. My gifts came from everywhere - WA NZ ...

Saturday night was dress up night and the theme was "Carnivale" This was my effort .

Rosemary Carleen and I on the Illawarra Fly. A tree top walk inland from Kiama.

This is it .The sea cliff bridge. A very inpressive coastline.

On our recent trip to Kiama Carlen & I did a trike tour along the sea cluff bridge This is us decked out.. I must admit that I was not well at the end of the ride. A bit erky perky.

Civil War Blocks - two done this week. A little catch up. Had to do some frog stitching. Oops!!

And I didn't "see" it until I had taken the photo

I have bought myself a new camera. My old one was starting to act up. HN had an Olympus with a rechargable battery on special so I have to now get used to the operating systems.

An anxious night last night, the river was the highest that I have seen it. Paul stayed up through the peak. The water normally comes up to the end of our street, but last night when I went to bed it was half way up to our place. The tide was on the way out though and it had stopped raining. The water is supposed to stay up today and then recede. I don't know if the new units in the photo got flooded or not. I took that photo at 4.30 pm and the river didn't peak until after midnight. They are along the creek at the rear of the main street.

I mage these on the weekend. Just dodging around in the sewing room. The brown one at the rear was a gift from Jane for my birthday, I thought is was just dandy and thought I could make some for others.
Cheers Edie
