Hello all on this cold, windy night!!! I hope you have your fires, reverse cycle ACs or gas heaters on full bore. I have been very slack in the blogging department this past month. I am finally giving you a sneak peek at my lastest flannel quilt as I had mentioned in previous blogs!! The little Sunbonnet Babies are soooooooooooo cute!!
Trudi, from Trudi's Craft Room won my giveaway of four fat 1/4's, congratulations Trudi.
What have I been doing???? It seems I have nothing much to report. I am sick of knitting socks. I sent Dad his lovely warm bed socks and that was the last pair I knitted. I did get one of the Tuesday girls at Cottage on the Hill to start knitting socks too. I even sent her the sock pattern. I think she has knitted 3 pairs so far. Well done Ros. and she says she is getting addicted too!!!! I suppose we could be addicted to worse things!!
Our son and his family are moving to a place on the coast, about three hours drive away. We will miss them, especially our 10 month old granddaughter. I guess it is not too far away, they could live overseas or in another State I suppose.
I having been tidying up my craft room, I can't see much difference yet!! The next project I want to make is a segmented wool embroidered, woollen pincushion. I haven't done any wool embroidery for years. I have heaps of Gumnut "Blossoms" threads that I should use. I am now trying to use only fabric and threads I already own or the family will have to have a huge jumble sale after I "Fall Off the Perch".
Well that's about all for now girls until next time!!!!

Hi Maryanne, those little baby girl patterns are just so gorgeous. I suppose they are embroidery patterns, they would be such a beautiful addition on a little girls quilt. I would love to see them done after you do them.
Love Vicki xox
