Shabby Quilt for Winter

I have been a bit out of sewing lately so I am making a comeback by some easy finishes. This was started a long time ago, all that was done was the cutting out.  With one thing after another, you all know how it is....

Now it's done and finished for winter snuggles.It's done with 8 inch squares.
 The garden is really green at the moment.. lovely weather... no heat .


My beautiful kids 
The perfect example of "love thy brother "  he is happy eating anything she is. 

Great Grandma's Scissors

These were Bernie's grandmother's( Elsie Kerr) scissors. Bernie's mum passed them on to me when I visited her last. They are still very sharp.

Quilpie 100 Year Celebration Machinery Parade

To celebrate 100 years of Quilpie they had a vintage machinery parade. They had approx  80 restored vehicles and a couple of this era. Don and Paddy from Orange bought this load of beautifully restored trucks , big and small to the show.  An interesting fact is that Quilpie is the end of the railway line to the west from Brisbane.
