Last Friday I had my second 3 month check up following my surgery for uterine cancer back in June. I am pleased to say that I passed the check with flying colours and so it is onwards and upwards until the next one in April.
The week leading up to these checks is always one filled with apprehension and sleepless nights so I was very pleased when Bonnie Hunter released the final installment of her mystery quilt on New Year's Day and I was able to finish it off. Called En Provence I changed the colour palette I was using to the blues, beiges and browns and that I used in the 13th Anniversary BOM I also completed at the end of last year. One of the quilts will be for me bed and other for a spare bed. I have made new curtains/ drapes for those rooms and the quilts were made with those rooms in mind.You can view other En Provence Mystery Quilts from Bonnie's link up HERE

As many of you know for 6 months of the year we do penguin guiding and for the past few months we have been captivated by the many baby penguins that we see being hatched and leave the colony.

Our Tasmanian hospitals were restocked at the end of last year with my Bridie's Blossoms packages and just getting started on making a new supply of them. Each new package now also has keepsake key fobs in them.

Pat Sloan is hosting a 182 Day Solstice Challenge where she provides instructions to make a quilt block every Wednesday for 6 months. I am going to participate in this challenge but I am a bit slow getting started with this one.
