My travel planes to USA in the air!

I was enjoying my weekend yesterday afternoon, turned the TV on for the news and watched in horror that Qantas has grounded all their flight's, both domestic and international, indefinitely.... I am booked with Qantas to fly to USA on Saturday.

Fun and games now begin to change airlines. Qantas is refunding all "their" tickets (wonder when I will get that money back?), but I will lose the money I paid for the connecting flights with Delta in the States, even thou I am doesn't cover this.

So now I will have to pay full fare for my flights, as I got "early bird" fares when I booked in June.

At least I am not stranded like the ones who are travelling yesterday and today...I have a few days to rebook.

So much for staying loyal to Australian airlines!

Until next post...

Long time, no post..SORRY!

I am so sorry that I have not posted a blog for quite a while, but with work commitments and getting everything done and ready before I go to the States, I haven't had time to take photos of something newsworthy for you folks out there!

So here is something I am working on at my boyfriend's place (no sewing machine or computer at his place!)... I am back stitching 12 of these little cuties and then will make up a baby quilt with alternate blocks in between.

Also, I am working on a quilt that I bought as a kit at the Newcastle Craft Show. I only have 3 more borders to add, so hopefully I will finish it and get it to the quilter before I go away.

Until next post...

For those who don't know me, I live in a small country town in NSW Australia.

So have you guessed where I am going???

Until next post....

Quilts arrive in the Post

I received 4 registered parcels today from Toni and inside them were these wonderful quilts. They are all folded with the backs showing, so you can't see how nice they really are!
I stacked them on my lounge and will measure and label them ready for my Quilt Sale in December.

They are so cute and bright... I hope they sell for her... along with ALL of mine selling!

Until next post..

His and Hers Phone Covers

Today is a Public Holiday (Labour Day), so I thought I would experiment and make up my own pattern for his Phone Sock and this is what I came up with:

The one with the cute button is for me (thought it was to "girly" for a man), and the other one is for my boyfriend.
I am going to use mine for my camera, as it didn't have a "sock" and I thought it would get cold when I take it with me to the States in November.

Now I must get onto a quilt I want to make up that was one of the kits I bought "on special" at the Newcastle Craft Show in August.

Until next post...

3rd & final quilt finished

Two posts in one day!

Yes, I have now finished binding the third quilt, so I can post the 2 smaller quilts off to my daughter for my grand children.

Now I can start onto something else... my boyfriend asked me to make him a "case" for his mobile phone. Must surf the net for a pattern...any ideas out there?

Until next post...

RAK received

I had a lovely surprise on Friday when the postman delivered a parcel to me.
Look what was inside!

I was in a RAK swap (Random Act of Kindness)and this is what I received from Bec. Aren't I a lucky ducky?
The "Fine & Flirty" is not only a pattern, but a kit with all fabric and beads included, the sewing project purse came with the pin cushion, tape measure & tiny cross stitch kit in it, then the box of nice smelly things and bag will certainly be used soon.... THANK YOU Bec!

Until next post..........
