A Finish

 The Aussie Hero quilt was finished this morning and has gone in the post, I hope it gets to Germany before the recipient comes home

The request was for the German flag colours, plane silhouette, and the eagle, plus his dates for being away - it is a bright one!!
It is a very hot day here for us, 34 deg C, I am waiting for the rain to come ๐Ÿ˜ž then maybe it will be more comfortable.
On my way home from the PO today I collected the dogs so they could come for a visit
Tira wants to sit outside and when she is outside wants to come in!!

Hank has found the toy box so he is happy!
We had a challenge at Guild last month , we were given fabric to make a table mat
I added the green fabric to get the mat wide enough and added a zip pocket as Jo does, didn't do it as well as Jo does but it still works. I have been searching for some Xmas earrings or something to add to the zip pull, the berries/bells I have are too small - I will continue searching.
I am off to the other toom now to enjoy the cool of the air conditioning.
Happy stitching.


  1. Great job on that quilt working with those colours. I works really well. xx

  2. The table mat is a great idea. The doggies are so cute long as you're not the constant door opener lol

  3. I’m sure the quilt will suit the recipient very well. I think everything is about keeping cool at the moment. Enjoy the air con.

  4. Great Aussie Hero finish .
    Both dogs will enjoy there visit at your place.
    You made a nice useful gift from your FQ.

  5. The Aussie hero quilt looks wonderful Sue - yes very bright! If you check out the Variety Stores ($2) they usually have a good range of christmas earings in there - I got some last year. The project bag/table mat loosk great!

  6. Keep cool.... I love that the dogs have a toy box at your place!! haha.... well done with the quilt...
