The cool change slooooowly made its way across Melbourne on Friday night. I’d hoped for a strong, rip-roaring southerly to blast its way through open doors and windows and vanquish the heat from the house, but no, a benign, gentle, you-can’t-even-call-it-a-breeze, wafted its way through. So it’s taken 36 hours for the house to cool!
Yesterday it was sewing at mine, the first of my groups to get together for 2014!! We were all a bit comatose after all the heat, well that’s my excuse anyway, as I forgot to take foodie photos – so sorry. We even had birthday cake for Miss V, on which there were candles. As I carried the cake into the room the fan blew out half of them!! Never mind, didn’t spoil the taste or dampen the singing!
I was knocked out of my stupor by some amazing show and tell though.
Miss Kaye picked up this beautiful print on one of her recent antiquing trips….
isn’t it just so sweet?! We noticed the machine appears to be a left handed machine – most appropriate for our Molly Dooker Miss Kaye! I love the way this little girl’s tongue is caught between her teeth in concentration – that’s me!!
Miss Helen has been doing some splurging for all you fabric dieters…..
Mrs Mac has had a big splurge!! (All in aid of the fabric dieters!!). So big I had to collage it!!
It was so lovely to catch up with the goss from the past few weeks; lots of news, plans hatching for the new year, fun and laughter. There were busy fingers too throughout the day. Miss V started knitting for her granddaughter, Miss S was working on her Christmas quilt (more of both of these as they progress), Kaye was appliquéing
