I have decided to hand quilt my siggy quilt from the Bendigo Retreat 2007; on Friday with help from my friend Judy it was pinned and yesterday I loaded it on the frame and this morning I started quilting it.

Judy and I also pinned the siggy quilt from the Adelaide Retreat in 2009 which I will machine quilt over the next week or so.

I then have the siggy squares from 3 retreats (Bathurst 2010,Kiama 2011 ,Bendigo 2013) to piece and quilt and I will be up todate!!!!

This is one of the waiting rooms at my Doctor's surgery, the roof of which I can see whilst sitting at my computer.Needless to say I don't spend much time in the waiting room as I stay at home until the last minute.

17/05/14   Bag

 Not many dogs have their own bag but Macy has, she is now well over 13 years old and has arthritis which is why she sits in that funny position.Other than that she is quite healthy and occasionally plays with Murphy and Millie .

12/0514 Ready

This is in the Slow Cooker ready to turn on , one of those toss everything in kind of recipes, the photo doesn't do it justice because there are red chillies and red capsicums in it as well as vegetables and chicken.

15/05/14  From where I walk

My ankle has been very troublesome lately and I need to strengthen both of them but I am not game to walk without holding on to something as I have had a couple of falls lately.So off I go every morning with my doggy stroller loaded with Murphy and Millie.
