Aussie Hero quilt

Another Aussie Hero Quilt top is nearly done, just needs a trim, good press and some sashings on the sides
you can probably guess the request was for fishing!!
I have also made a little baby quilt to go over a humidicrib...I am helping Jo, she is busy making little things for the hospital at Mildura, you can see what she is up to here.
love the cute animals
I had a wonderful surprise in the mail yesterday...a pen friend , from a Month of Letters, and journalling buddy in the US sent me a gift
we had a conversation about Budweiser via the internet and he could not believe I would drink that beer !! Hee Hee!! I have fond memories of a trip to the US and enjoying Bud Light where ever we stopped in the afternoon!!He also sent me some PURPLE ink so the next time I write in the journal I will write in purple!! He challenged us to us a nib type pen and ink.  Boy it slows you down!! But it makes you think about what you are writing and also makes you try to write  in script. So very special to get something out of the blue!!
I am off to the beach now for a swim and a sit in the sun/shade to read my book.
Happy sewing.
