Blog Header

 I thought I had better explain my blog header when Denice  from Denice's Day recognised  her quilts.
After my trip to the USA recently I decided to show some pictures in my blog header to remind me of the awesome time I had.

Remember this super cool lady I visited. Well the two quilts in the header are are hers. She spotted them the other day.. Surprise ! They were truly lovely. and I felt like a little girl again in my fairy bed it was beautiful. Thanks again to my wonderful  friend from across the miles.

Just hanging Out

Recently I had a trip to the Tropical North. This is Holloway's beach  just North of Cairns. on a cloudy rainy day unfortunately but that is the tropics in summer. Australia has a lot of monsoon rain this summer. Basically you are looking right out to the Great Barrier reef from here.

 I have to share these photos. E decides every time we talk face to face phone style we use messenger and there are these buttons on the bottom that put images over you face. She does it all the time and thinks it's so funny. There are fire breathing photos and all crazy things.  They can do everything on phones these kids. She and B were up north and L and my great niece and I were at home the two of them were in on the action. Little pic is of my niece and big pic is of E. She looks such a baby here compared to other photos.  They laughed and laughed. I love these tow though!

Australia Day 2018

Australia Day - I spent Australia Day in North Queensland with my brother in law and his family. It has rained all day and all night since I arrived Thursday. Just lovely to have rain I hope I take some home with me.  We ate pies and burgers and had some nice wine. We talked and told stories and had a great time.

Bias Maker

I bought this little machine last year and this is the first time I have used it .. I know ... terrible isn't it.  But anyway... it is a very useful little gadget if you have to make lots of bias or you like to use bias in a lot of your sewing or craft projects. Its made by simplicity 

roll on your strips

Thread it through as in a normal bias maker
Put the cover on 
Press the button and away you go
