Confessions and Explanations

I've been trying to post this confession and explanation now for 2 days. It would have all made visual sense. However . . . after several tries and several days . . . I've finally read the small print and my photo quota has reached it's "free" limit. ARGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
Is it time for a new blog?

Some beautiful Amy Butler fabric that Four Wise Monkeys passed on to me recently
I made it into a quilt (surprise, surprise)
I'm not very good at cooking, and have enough trouble making meals for my own family, but when a friend of mine lost her father recently, I wanted to do something to let her know I was thinking of her and surrounding her in love and comfort
So I made her a quilt
I haven't delivered it yet, as I'm enjoying the lovely colours, but I will take it to her at the weekend.
The lovely "cheats" backing, I get from Emma, and it makes it look so good. You just follow the lines and then they just wash off.
. . . and here is my purple skirt!
I had to add a bit of length for my middle aged lady legs!
And here is a little bit of crotchet that I did as 'car craft' last weekend when I went away.
I just love the JET wool.

Not such a good photo, but just to let you know, I'm LOVING my Art Classes on Tuesdays!
Rubbings of underwater fish, some sea weed and then a blue wash.
How old do you think this bag may be?????

A day in the Garden

First day of Winter here in Ballarat
. . . and the sun was shining
I was lucky not to have to go to work, so I spent the whole day in my garden
