Well Fay just gave me call to thank me for the garden gloves. She said they are really lovely and look great with the terracota flowerpot! Now i must get onto my 'Noahs ark' b.o.m. i havn't done last months one yet as our printer needs ink ! I was going to go to calico christmas this weekend but had some bad car trouble. the turbo blew on the pajero on monday, so then we were driving our other truck and the same thing happened to that as well!! I couldn't beleive it! 2 in week!! well 1 is fixed. the other a bit more serious. so I will just have to make sure i go next time.

My friends








This is my freinds, Fay(left) and marion (right). both are great patchworkers. Marion does all her patchwork by hand! That is cutting out and sewing!! She does beutiful quilts. Perfectly matched and stiched. Her little cottage is filled with Christmas trees all throughout. It is amazing to see! there are real ones but mostly artifical ones all decorated with handmade decorations that she has made herself throughout her lifetime. you have to see it to beleive it. She is known as "the christmas tree lady". When I find my photos i will try to post them so you can see. my sister pam has seen them.
