well I took them all to Perth with me and made more
and I ended up with 285 little 4 1/2 inch squares
which I started to join up into this
I have double crocheted them all together one way
and I have nearly finished going the other way
then I will do a few rows of trebles around the outside...
as you can see it is quite BIG as that is a queen size bed I have it spread out on
but the recipient is tall so she will need it BIG...

The Veggie Patch...
well look at it now green everywhere...
everything has grown even more since those photo's were taken
before I went to Perth...
Last night I made Spinach and Feta Pie with spinach out of the garden and eggs from the new girls...
there are capsicums on the bushes and chillies
so good to see things fruiting in the veggie patch even if we are going to eat most of it...
On a more sad note
has anyone seen the news in WA in the past two days
the couple who drowned off the coast while their two children sat waiting?
the lady Kathreen Rickson is a regular writer in the Australian Quilters Companion...
I thought her face looked familiar...
My heart goes out to their families at this sad time.

My How Time Flies When You Are Busy...
and it has been over a month well and truly since my last post
doesn't it sound a little like confession...
I have been away in Perth but I have been checking your blogs daily
and leaving the odd comment...
before I went to Perth my niece had a baby and he was so weeny and there were problems
but he is all okay now and so is my niece
meet Kodi-lee 5lb 5oz
and that is a little crochet rug I made
I did make him a quilt also..... but I think that photo is stuck in my old camera!!!
isn't he weeny and so cute...
and remember these blocks?
well it's finished
I did finish it before I went to Perth
but I had so much to do in the days before I left that I didn't have time to post...
I am so happy with the finished quilt
and the new owners were very happy...
Now this is why I was in Perth
behind the bride is her brother and sister who she had as her ''bridesmaids''
plus her new sister -in-law
our beautiful oldest daughter Sara and her now hubby Brendan...
and also while I have been absent..................
we have sold the station and we have bought a new home closer to Perth and the kids...
settlement is a couple of months away as we are dealing with a rural property and trust us when we say we need all of that time to pack and sort through 70 years of Hubby's family stuff...
I am home for about 10 days then I head back for the birth of our first grandie...
lots of packing to be done before I head off again...
