For many years, in fact since I was 10 years old I have had a penfriend in the USA

Georganna has been to visit me in Australia five times and I have been to visit her twice

Meeting her in real life was like meeting a long lost sister

She came to Lyndas wedding .but didnt make it to Aines

She came about two years ago to see Lorraine and say her goodbyes

This week in the mail I received These beautiful quilted pictures that she made

The Breast cancer one is a lovely tribute to my darling girl and a great comfort to me

She doesnt have a blog or email


How nice it would be to "talk" to her more often

Lorraines Flowers

Blogging has made me some wonderful generous caring friends

One such friend is Fiona

Fiona designed this lovely table runner, then named it in honour of my beautiful daughter

Her pattern was published in Patchwork and Stitching ,then she sent the original to me as a keepsake

I have made two for family members who will tresure them also as a wonderful keepsake of Lorraine

Thankyou Fee

You made me feel very special

A finish and a gift

I finished Kitties quilt . Kittie is my adopted great grandchild ,grand daughter of Lorraines husband

I hope to deliver it in the next week or so

I was lucky with my mail this morning

I received this gorgeous bag from Cyndi at Bluebirdswing

I dont know how to do the linky thing but Cyndi makes the loveliest bags

Iam so lucky to now have one of my own

The photo just doesnt do it justice So much better in "the Flesh"

She made it especially for me in my colours

Thankyou Cyndi

I love it and look forward to using it

Another Finish

It is freezing!!!!!!!!!

A good day to stay indoors with the fire blazing and sew I actually dont mind days like this At least I can get a bit of me time

Hubby is being a pain though He hates being idle

We have been watching old home movies the last couple of nights So funny and so many forgotten memories.

I finished another scrappy quilt

It will be one for my quilting group to donate to charity

We have four ready now, two of which I have made

Well off to do some sewing and try to keep warm

My dear friend Fee of Designs By Fee has a pattern published in this months edition of Patchwork and Stitching, which is very dear to me

Fee named her beautiful table runner for my dear girl, who as you all know recently lost her battle with cancer

She has called her runner Lorraines Flowers

How special is that?

This weekend Iam off to Rawson for my annual scrap booking retreat
