What Has Been Keeping Me Busy.

Well ladies, another week has flown past which now makes it a week closer to Christmas! Hasn't this year gone so quickly, and I don't know where to. Anyway lots of things have happened, both positive and not so positive this year, but we do know God is still in control and we still have lots to be thankful for.

I have spent this past week up with Rachelle as she had her fourth treatment on Tuesday. She is coping very well although does get reasonably tired and has to have a few rests. It has been so good being with her and we always have a fun time - as Mike was away in Australia and Hami flew over to be with him on Wednesday, us girls, Rachelle, Ella and I kept each other company. Ella had exams so she spent most of the time swatting for them. It was so good being able to to be them and of course Nana could help her with the hard questions!! A big joke that is!

Our oldest grand daughter, Zoe Kate, has her 19th birthday today ( oh dear, they grow up too fast!) so I am going to share the card I made for her.

I have used a Kenny image and made a recessed window card. I was in contact with her this morning and she seemed to be happy with it.

As you all probably realise, I love working with fabric as well as paper, so I am showing you a couple of quilt tops that I have just put together. They have to be sandwiched yet. The first is a double wedding ring quilt and I have made it for our bed - it will look so much better when quilted. The second is for the spare room, one does like a change!!!

That's it today ladies, Thank you all for taking the time to check this out and I hope you card makers don't mind viewing my other hobby.

Happy crafting all and many blessings,

  1. Love the card, I'm sure your grandaughter will have been delighted with it. Colours are really good together. I like your quilts too, and really enjoy looking at all your work. Thanks for sharing it with us. Very pleased to hear your daughter is making good progress with her treatment and seems to be coping better with it. Best wishes to you all. Margaret

  2. Hello Margaret, Great to hear from you and thanks so much for the positive comments - yes, Zoe did seem to appreciate her card and of course what was inside!!
    Rachelle is still coping pretty well but it really does seem to be quiet a drag. We do pray the end result will be positive. Love and blessings Margaret, Betsy
