Forthcoming Visitor

I am still trying to use up the fabric in my stash, it seems to be a never ending challenge. I've made a couple of autumn toned quilts, a few scrappy ones, a green one and now I am working on the blues again. This is the first block of the new project. I love HSTs, you can do so much with them.

Last week was my mother-in-laws birthday. We went to Melbourne to have lunch with her and other members of the family to celebrate her 92nd year.

On the way home we called into the Camberwell Sewing Centre and came home with this little addition to my sewing machine collection. I think it will be lovely to sew and quilt on when I've had a little more time to play with it. I hope to go back to the shop in a week or two for a lesson.

I'd like to introduce Pino. Pino belongs to our youngest daughter. The very same daughter who is going overseas for 3 months, guess who is going to look after Pino????
This is an 'inside cat' we already have a black cat who lives outside, should be interesting when they meet through the window. The 'Man of the House' hates cats, especially cats inside the house. I should be in for a fun 12 weeks.

Hey, have fun with that fabulous new machine! And the cat! Where's daughter going for 3 months? I missed your IM last night, because I had gone to bed, leaving my computer all turned on and ready to go. I was that tired. Maybe next time I'll really be there!
