A few things I have managed

I have made the February block for Granny's Hankie.
I am really very slow.

I have had my computer down for a bit as my Modem collapsed and I had to get another, so I have been without internet for a while.
Just as well, as I am not comfortable sitting here for long.

Mal is doing remarkably well and apart from being a bit tired and unable to do the things he used to do without effort -he is back to his normal self :)
His operation was completely successful and the tumor is not expected to return!!

However it has all worn me out!

Mal relaxing at home after his time in Perth with our eldest daughter Fiona.

Andrea is more or less well - home with another nasty cold. at present.

I have also put together my whole cloth quilt - hand basted it!

Rolling up the front and backing prior to basting

Progressing accross the front lower section of the quilt.

This curved needle was REALLY helpful as I couldnt manage it with a straight needle.
Miracle it that I was able to find it :)

All hand basting completed. 
I began to sew with a cream silk on top and a beige aurofil in the bobbin.
I hadnt sewn for a while...and need to do a hepa more practise.

I frogged all that I had sewn...didnt like it at all and thought it was best to do that before much more was done.  THAT took a while as the stitches were tiny!
Then I looked at it for another day...nearly ready to throw it all in the too hard basket.

I have now got some of the design drawn - trying out some markers that I have
and this will be my practise piece.

Just have to put that together now ... and will spend some time getting back to to hopefully where I was.

I have been watching everyones blogs...sometimes trying to make comments - and having problems with Blogger...

So I have been a silent lurker.
Hope to be back to normal soon.
Lots of resting between times.  I seem to be sleeping a lot!

To complete my blogging after soooo long
here is a photo of our Wisteria in bloom.
