My 200th Post!

Oh, I know stacks of Girls who talk more than I do - but here we are - 200 Posts in just under a year! I knew it would come around very quickly! A busy, busy day today - sorry - sadly I didn't get my goodies posted as promised, so now it will be next Monday - I am sorry, Girls! It was one of those days where family came first - it always will! As you know, the Sewing Room had to be tidied so I could go away with peace of mind! Above - fancy drinking latte out of this? - very dear friend, Gwen, gave me this gorgeous birthday gift - Phyllis in Canada, I hope you are checking this out! - Phyllis is Gwen's sister! - and while I was unpacking and tidying decided to show you this really cute, gift - thank you, dear Gwen - big hugs

This 'the' Sewing Room - is it tidy enough? - I'm glad you can't see around corners - never mind, I'm happy enough with it!
Early tomorrow I take off for Avalon Homestead, possibly 100k trip as I have two Girlfriends to pick up on the way - as DH's car is bigger than mine, that is what I will be driving! He lovingly readied it for me today and tossed in a dirty heap was his travelling quilt!
Mmmm, I thought - that quilt is really quite lovely! It had a few very grotty marks on it, so out with pre-wash stain remover then into the washing machine - and, look at it now! Perhaps 7 or 8 years ago I bought this kit from Rose Patchwork Cottage, at a show, when I live in Brisbane, Queensland!
Just look at these divine fabrics and appreciate how they have stood the test of time! I will never be blase about my quilts again - no more in the sunshine in the car for this little darling - she'll live in the family room now! Ed wonders what he will do for a travelling quilt - a cheap polar fleece will be the answer and I won't be making it!
Well, meals are prepared for the family for the next few days - I'm off to bed with an early rise to pack my bag - sewing is packed already! - baby Saskia is settling in beautifully, so let's hope all is well while I'm away - I am so looking forward to this retreat!
Stay safe and have lots of fun sewing - I will, too - talk to you Friday!
Hugs♥ -

Jantine said...

Wow 200 within a year, that is quite a lot! Congratulations! I think the traveling quilt was worth the rescue, but I do think DH deserves another one, maybe just a quick scrap quilt. After all, he has taken care of it (in his way) all these years.
