I had good intentions of popping in here a few more times
So then I thought a bit of a round-up was probably a good way to go, so you...and I...can see what I've done. Because sometimes it feels like not very much at all. So let's see, in no particular order.....
There was boro -style bunting, which went off to the States for a gift in a Christmas swap. My partner had requested a non-Christmassy gift, and as I knew she has a little plant filled balcony, I though what better gift than fabric, beads and buttons to flutter in the breeze.
Gifts received in return....very sweet felt Christmas ornaments......
Soft and cosy pouches and liners for a wildlife rescue group in Queensland.......
And bags to make carrying drains easier for patients after breast cancer surgery ....these went to Tasmania to a group called The Simple Gift of a Bag
A local group put out a call for donations of quilt blocks, which would then be assembled into a quilt to bring some cheer to a young girl diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer. I dug into my stash again, quickly made these two and sent them off.
I think that was all the sewing, apart from the scrappy quilts I showed in my last post.
***Then there was the day out with a friend, where we played tourist and visited the Numinbah Natural Arch, halfway between both our places, but just over the border in Queensland. We hiked the rainforest trail up to the arch then enjoyed a picnic afterward by the river.
and fog shrouded mornings, that turned into hot sticky days as the sun burned through.
And just as quickly were replaced by sudden storms with hail and strong winds.......my jacaranda tree was knocked over by one of these ...... and as I write this another thunderstorm is rolling in from the south-west, cooling the day down, and bringing lots of very welcome rain!
Breakfast was enjoyed with friends.....
|The cats are having their second breakfast....an egg!|
So...November was a pretty full month after all, and a bit of well-earned resting was done on the verandah in the cool.
I hope your November was full to the brim too.
Till next time...........
