2016 - The Year that was.

The Year got off to a melting start with 44⁰ C temperatures
and a good reason not to be outside!

Was the time to start on those UFOs
One down and One into the THB (Too hard basket)

Another UFO finished,
taming the pile of scraps in the sewing room and the weeds at DD's home

I took you on a tour of the Royal Exhibition Buildings in Carlton

Volunteering for way to many projects at once
An Anniversary, Book launch, Mothers Day and Starting a new quilt
What was I thinking?

A good month for adding to my knitting wool stash, 
Baking, working on WIPs and finishing PhDs

To celebrate our 'Coral' (35th) Wedding Anniversary
A trip to the Great Barrier Reef
and meeting up with Quilter friends as well!

Cake decorating and Stencilling with the Scan 'n Cut

Welcome to Spring!

Finally getting to the "Making of the Australian Quilt" exhibition
 to see the Rajah Quilt 

The hand stitching is done, borders are on.
"My Istanbul" is finished and back from being Custom Quilted.

I have been sharing "Who I am and What I do" with you for 6 years now 
and I have also shared the important things that happen around me.
In those same 6 years Our Beautiful DD has been working on her PhD (Chemistry)
She finally graduated - It was a Happy Day!

As I have prepared this "Year in Review" I have thought back and remembered all the things that happened that I haven't written about.  
It has been a VERY busy year, and next year?
... I will keep you posted.

Bye for now and may you have a Safe and Happy New Year.
