    Red face Hoorraaaayyy!!! I've got them finished on time....

    .....for Christmas, the 2 quilts for our darling grand-children. The last stitches (for labels) done on the 24th!!!
    They just loved their quilts and since it's warm in Australia, they decided to put them to good use straight away last night!!!

    Two lovely quilts. Well done.

    If they were down in Sydney yesterday they would have certainly been wrapped up in them. It is a very wet and cool day here. Not the usual Christmas day at all weatherwise.

    No, we had an absolutly marvellous day!!! Not too hot, a slight breeze so we all had lunch outside under the trees in the garden and truly enjoyed the day. Today it's overcast, so who knows, there might be rain on the way, which we need badly!!!
