HELP NEEDED...... Can any one give me suggestions how i can get my links to work. When I am doing my post I click on the link button, paste the copied address, but when my post shows on my blog nothing shows. No link or address shows. I have tried everything I can think of. Logged out, updated, logged in,tried again manytimes over. Nothing is working. I have never had this problem before....AND I cant get spaces between my paragraphs or when i want something to start on the next line it just continues into one body of text... *************************************************************************************************** Well, I didnt sew these on Saturday but I did do them during the week so I could link up today. I was given a bag of brown scraps that had already been sewn together into strips and crosscut into 1 1/2" strips. What was I to do with them.

It gets very hot where we are now living and the all day sun beats down on our patio so we have decided to add a 3 * 3 metre pergola to give a little extra shade area. laying the frame base area...

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE.... LETS ALL WELCOME IN 2021 If nothing else, we have learnt to communicate via ZOOM instead of getting together for our quilting gatherings and retreats. ZOOM has connected us with overseas quilters and bloggers. It has been amazing actually talking with bloggers that we would normally only comment on blogs or email. Putting a face and voice to the blog person has been wonderful. I can't seem to get the link to work so have a look at dreamworthyquilts.blogspot.com and search for QUILTERS GARDEN ROW QUILT. Deana is selly this pattern on Etsy too. Yes I got it quilted.

Well what a year we have had. I haven't had much inspiration or motivation this year. Yes, I have done some quilting, followed blogs, been on Zoom with great friends, joined in with QATW swaps but I haven't felt the same as usual. I have missed our group, weekends away, catching up with friends and of course, quilting retreats. Our daughter, husband and grandies have moved to our town. This has been great but be still have to fall in to a routine of seeing each other. Covid interrupted. They have both secured jobs which is so wonderful and makes things so stress free. I had a great day sewing with my friend today. I got 1 border ready for BH FROLIC.. I have a Zoom with CHOOKY tomorrow and hope to get it attached.. 2021 is going to be better. I had a wonderful few days with my brother at Tocumwal. Met some great friends of his. Some of which we will be going through the middle of Australia and to the top end in May 2021. Another lady who says she doesnt quilt much but has been sewing for 10 years. She is doing EPP hexies. Something I dont do. She also lives in Geelong and doesnt know any quilters. I hope this can be changed in 2021. Nerida, You are amazing. To all my friends in blog land, my quilting world, my friends and family I can only hope and wish for a much happier, healthier and safer 2021.

Well, I hope everyone had a lovely Xmas day. It's now the end of Boxing Day and my plans have changed. We were expecting to be on the road to visit my mother in law.. Due to covid and travel, work and other plans, my hubby fractured his little toe a week ago and is on crutches. He cannot walk so is feeling a bit uncomfortable, cannot work until he can put steel cap boots on. maybe 4-6 weeks away. We didnt know if we had time available for a trip. Anyway we hadn't booked. So I looked online and I could't find any accommodation. My mother in law lives 10 hours away. We decided to stay home and not risk the teavel and not randomly finding somewhere to stay. Being school holidays, Victorians now allowed to travel & Christmas everyone has decided to be away. I say, take advantage and clean that sewing room...

I just can't help myself.. I joined another swap. Anyone that signed up sews 6 blocks of 2 different designs of blocks that get sewn into a stocking block which measures 12" finished. I had to send 5 of each block to Candis in the USA. She will collate all the blocks and forward me 10 blocks to give me a total 12 to make up into a quilt anyway I like.
