Happy Boxing Day

Boxing Day was so called as employers gave their servants boxes of food etc on the 26th after they worked Christmas Day. This is only one of the many theories that I have heard.
Sent Emma home with a "box" of left overs this morning as she and John made a wonderful lunch yesterday.
Boxing Day in our house consists of leftovers from Christmas lunch and watching the cricket at the MCG.
Enjoy the rest of your celebrations with your families and relax.

Christmas Greetings

It is a beautiful morning this morning in Melbourne, the sun is shining and the neighbour's
kids are squealing with delight at what Santa has given them.
Wishing all my blog friends and their families a wonderful day today and every good wish for a happy, healthy and special 2014.
This year seems to have flown so fast, it seems the older we get the quicker it goes.
I am looking forward to 2014, have a couple of get aways planned especially now that I will be able to walk without pain.
After all that has happened in my family over the last 18 months with an amazing outcome to it all and being told by someone that it is "not about me", I want to spend more time doing quilts, quilts for love etc for others. 
Enjoy your day with your families. 
Many thanks for reading my blog. I hope you have enjoyed my posts.

2014 Japan Quilt Tour

I am very excited, have put a deposit down for the 17 Day Japan Quilt Tour taking in the 2014 Yokohama Quilt Festival. 
The tour is organised through Lisa Walton from Dyed and Gone to Heaven.
I have always wanted to go to Japan, ever since I had a pen pal there when I was in primary school.  Autumn is my favourite time of year and the tour is in November, looking forward to seeing the beautiful Japanese trees in colour.

Next Border

This week I have been sorting through my repo and civil war fabric stash to decide on fabrics for the next border of "Medallion Melody" by Lori Smith. Sad to say, it is not a task I am particulary fond of.
