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.

Initial heart swap.

My parcel has been mailed off. Hope my partner likes my gifts. I have revived my parcel from Anna.
With the temperatures being ridiculous high 30 and 40 plus my chocolate was quite melted so I jus had to eat it. I will open my wrapped parcel on the 14th. Just because.

I have been walking regularly for the past week. I am getting 8000 steps at least four times a week. For me this is huge. I even headed out this morning when my walking buddy slept in.

Talia is packing up here room. Five more days and she will be gone. Off to Canberra to start her double degree. Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of teaching. She is majoring in ancient History and minor if in Religious Education.
She is attending the uni where I went to.

Being a hooker ....

I have joined an Aussie Temperature blanket - loom/crochet/knitted Facebook group.

I am making hexagons (which would be such a surprise).

I am loving my colour choices and how this blanket is coming together.

Day 22 update.




This weekend has been such a wonderful one. My three girls were all home along with Talia's boyfriend Zac and Candice's boyfriend Jack.

Friday night was a night of celebration. Loud music and alcohol was part of the night.

Saturday Candice, Bridie, Jack and I headed over to Parkes. We ate breakfast at Bellas then headed out to see the Dish. Jack was so excited!!

The girls tried many times to "hold" up the dish.

This is Bridie.


Candice and Jack.




Next time Candice and Jack come they will be bringing Jack's son, Bailey. We might be heading up to Dubbo Zoo.

Holidays are great

I am enjoying my time at home. Going through cupboards and rooms getting rid of some rubbish.

I have also spent time in the end of a crochet hook, my version of the Temperature quilt.







And experimenting with a corner to corner quilt.



I also joined #apqresolution Over on instagram. You make a list of 12 projects you want to start or finish and align them to a month. All people quilt choose a number and then you work on that project.
So this month is number six.
My project is to bind some quilts. This one was made by Candice for Talia. Tick it is finished.


I have also completed my Initial Heart swap project.


Now to bind some more quilts.

SSSC Xmas Swap

Wow what can I say.
I was pleasantly surprised to have received my parcel from Gail Gail's Blog, Independence Missouri. The name was so familiar and when I checked my previous swaps I had the privilege of sending Gail her parcel in 2015.

The gifts I received from Gail were wonderful.
Some buttons and a notepad.




Some cute bobbin holders.



And the main present being a table runner featuring some of favourite things.



Thank you so much for my special gifts and also thank you Chooky for hosting another successful swap.
