A catch up...

I have been in Melbourne the past week. Unfortunately I had to go to a funeral, visit my SIL in full time care and my girlfriend was rushed in to emergency. The funeral went as good as can be expected, it was sad to see my SIL but we do need to accept it, my girlfriend was operated on and is home recovering. She is doing very well.
It was great to stay a few days with my daughter and the grandsons. A night with my brother and a very close friend.
I caught up with many friends. Too many to name but I want to thank them all. I must say when I was driving home it really felt like I was going home. All I wanted to do was get there.   I feel comfortable here.. I am getting used to the weather, people, everything. All I need is to get some work....
Back in Melbourne there were so many good moments. I only got a photo of one. My Monday girls sewing day.... They put together a lunch for me. And passed on my quilt blocks to remember our lovely friend Jill. Thanks Max for my gift. Photo of the blocks and photo of Jill when I decide what design I want to put them into... Here are the lovely ladies....
Barb, Jo, Rhonda & Joy

Tonight I spent sewing and catching up on Bonnie Hunters Mystery Quilt En Provence
Here is my progress of part 2. The night that the next step is released. I did catch up though...
Here is step 2 all made up.
