I'm still here!

It has been some time since my last post.  I began to feel strange and anxious about what to put on this one.  I am running out of photos so will have to take some more especially now that Autumn is here and the trees are starting to change colour.

I have been working of late and more projects are popping up some of them too good to turn down.  So I 
have been busy with that.  Although last week I was home alone while our son went to camp with school and my husband when to work (He works abroard).  I got a lot of things done workwise and some sewing progress was made.

There are only two truly scrumptious blocks to stitch before I can put the quilt together.  The photo below is of the four little lady heads that will be going in the corners in the centre of the quilt.  They are very cute even though they are not quite finished yet.

Last week we removed a very large radiata pine from our back yard.  It had become a big pain in the neck dropping needles and creating thick darkness, so out it came and the sun came through like a whole new world.  

The weekend was lazy so a pie was on order.  I made a delicious creamy chicken pie, with bacon, onion and mustard and three different types of cheese.

I have also been curious about a "Dear Jane" quilt.  I have ordered the book but as to whether I will make it is another story.  Perhaps one day, like all the other projects waiting to be made.

Signing off for now



  1. Hi Marina, That pie looks delicious!! I can sense a Dear Jane group developing...Im also keen to have a look at it and I know Leanne has ordered the book also...perhaps???? I sent my deposit away for Campania today also so there will be quite a group of Tassie bloggers there now!! Cathy

  2. Yummy stitching and yummy pie.
    Interested to see the finished quilt.

  3. Welcome back Marina,

    I am looking forward to seeing your quilt finished. The pie looks delicious - Can I have the recipe?
