Reading the news!

DD and I spied this chap reading his paper the other day in our local Chinatown

Block-A-Palooza Quilt Along

Ok, New Year means trying new things.  I'm participating in the Blogger's Block-a-palooza quilt along hosted by Quilt Dad

I have deviated from the fabric line the bloggers have used and found some 1/8 yard bundles of Park Slope fabric which needs to be cut into.  It must be 2 years old, so probably going out of fashion fast!

Here are the first six blocks - rather bright, but fun nevertheless

What I've been working on....

Poor old Blog...I've been neglecting her.  Had a big trip to the US and Hong Kong over Chrismtas/New Year.  Our big camera is at the doctor and I'm sad we may have lost lots of our photos :(

I am not good at NY resolutions, as they are usually unrealistic and fall by the wayside, but this year I am endeavouring to declutter my life and grab new opportunities when they arise.

We all saw the devastation in the media of the many natural disasters which have befallen most of Australia.  I, and some of my friends, have begun making some Quilt As You Go (QAYG) blocks for Jan Mac of Oz Comfort Quilts who does wonderful work making quilts for many deserving charities.  Her other blog Sew Many Quilts Too Little Time also shows some of the wonderful work she does.
