Wind and Rain

Four flowers this week

50 Flowers

For Amandas blog challenge

Mr Ginge
We have had wind and rain in Mackay for the last week I love the rain good weather to sit at the sewing machine and create not that I did I was just too lazy. I did manage to do my hexagons for the month I have finished 50 flowers now I still do not know how many I need for a double bed quilt someone please let me know. The doll clubs that I go to have closed or are about to close for the Christmas holidays so I will have lots of time to make hexagons. I also managed to make my project for the challenge on Amanda’s blog. Miss Molly had a visit from her friend Mr Ginger from over the way. Dolly Hugs to all. Rita.

I just love my mailman yesterday he gave me a parcel from my Daughter Amanda (from I love cloth dolls and cloth crafts)she sent me some great fabric for my birthday to put in my stash, I love every one of them.
There was a beautiful card with very pretty cats on the front and back.
I have not had time to make my hexagons last week or this week I will make up for it next week. Our doll club was deferred to next Wednesday because some of the ladies were not well and I had a fall and hurt my chest, so we all needed an extra week before our meet, we will make up for it next week.
