I usually start off with a comment about how slack I've been not to post, how busy I've been, how I must do better. But I won't do that today. Straight into some photos.
We go round to our brother's place twice a week for a delicious meal cooked by his lovely wife, and some leisurely conversation. Not so last Tuesday; SIL Bev was worn out, and not feeling the love for her Christmas tree, so after dinner Mereth and I pitched in to help decorate. It's fun to rummage through different decorations and she has a fantastic collection of baubles.
I will get some good pictures of Bev's Christmas village next time, it's extensive and has lights and two trains, and snow and everything; magical!
We went down to visit Mereth's firstborn son, and went to a few places, no time to tell about that now. Suffice to say there was fabric acquisition. Remember when I tried so hard not to buy blue/green/acqua fabrics to finish this quilt? I snapped, after two years I'm still harbouring a longing for these colours. I can feel a batik stash coming on.
Notice the dog on the floor? Faithful girl, always underfoot. I think she does it to annoy me, so that I take her to the park.
And that seam is sewn, ready to be ironed when I get back from work. I'm even closer to having a finished project!!
