Today I have been adding to ...

I'm still making the most of the last few work-free days!! We've been watching the Harry Potter movies on the TV for the last week or so, and I've been hand sewing, so my hexi rainbow now looks like this


And I've added all my stash of selvedge edges to each other and to the denim quilt: it's now getting big enough to be finished soon, but I'm not sure what to do next!


I've also finished (and filled) version 2 of the Block Bag


The sewing room looks as if a bomb exploded in there, but I'm sweeping it all to the side to give myself a bit of sewing space: tidying can wait until there isn't enough time to sew

I know some of the world is already in next year: we are going to friends soon to celebrate. I wish you all all the very best for 2017! A friend at church sent me this and I think it's worth sharing (thank you Nomi)

Boarding on Flight 2017 has been announced......Hope you have checked in only the best souvenirs from 2016 in your luggage....The BAD and SAD moments, if still in your possession, must be thrown away in the garbage bins before departure.......The flight will be 12 months long. So, loosen your seat belts, jingle and mingle.

The stop-overs will be :







Refueling will be at




The following menu is offered and will be served during the flight.......

✅ Cocktail of Friendship,

✅ Supreme of Health,

✅ Grating of Prosperity,

✅ Bowl of Excellent News

All accompanied by bursts of laughter...

But remember, you will enjoy these meals and the journey better if you talk, share, smile and laugh together. Sitting silent will make the flight seem longer.
