Goodbye Winter - Hello 91 Days of Spring

Wow, cannot believe today is the last day of winter; the weather out here has been rather warm, around 29 -31º centigrade,  though the nights can still be slightly cool, around 16º.

My plans for spring are to take a photograph a day, for 91 days of spring, at this stage no theme to the photos,  just random ones that take my fancy on a daily basis. They will be taken with my Samsung Galaxy Note, as I have somehow lost or mislaid my camera.

My sewing plans are to (try)  and keep up with my BOMs and the Compass Quilters and Possum Magic.

Anyhow, I am going to gather some hand sewing, a cup (or I should say pot) decaf tea, and settle back and watch ANZAC Girls.

These blocks I received from some oc the Possum Magic group,  warm hugs to you ladies (I would mention your names,  but not sure re privacy issues whether or not to name the ladies).

Thank you for taking time to stop by. Happy stitching. Sharon

Been Absent

Another month has passed., and I have been very slack in my blogging.  The only excuse I have is that I have been away in the early part of August,  then when I came back, been doing extra shifts at work.

I finally finished block 5 in The Happiness Quilt BOM by Monica Poole.

I also finished block the 7 in The Hexie BOM, this month it was the sun

I have made a start on the sashing 

I have also been working on some blocks associated with Possum Magic and Compass Quilters.

The shawl I have been knitting in Kelbourne Mystery KAL is almost completed, I am on the border rows. Once I have completed the shawl,  I shall post some photos.  I really want if finished and offf the knitting needles over the weekend,  as I have signed up with Sweater babe for a scarf knita long. 

Thank you for taking time to stop by. Happy stitching. Sharon
