Catching up

After busy three weeks of housing my eldest child and her partner, they left at midnight on Sunday for his family home in The Netherlands.  This is going to be the quietest Christmas ever.  Without my Dad, my Mum in Brisbane visiting my sister and her family, one daughter in Sydney and one in Heemstede, this is the first time we are apart.  Thank goodness for Skype and cell (mobile) phones, just knowing one can contact them, without the expensive long-distance call charges of many years ago.

Orca Bay - parts 1 to 4 complete

I'm now on leave now for two weeks and having spent the last three evenings tidying up sewing room and catching up with Orca Bay (at least to part 4), I'm looking forward to doing part 5 tomorrow, especially as I now have the right ruler!

Please go and look at the progress being made by other quilters on this exciting mystery quilt on Quiltville's link up thingy.


  1. Wishing you a very productive time over Christmas doing something that you love. Enjoy.

  2. looking fabulous, Have a Happy Christmas :-)

  3. Have a wonderful Christmas! My daughter and her family are away for Christmas too, so I plan on getting sewing done too. Your Orca Bay parts look lovely in those bins.


Thank-you for visiting. Are you a quilter?
