Welcome to tales of my stitching life, home, family and friends.

Saturday, January 5, 2013


I’ve decided to join in the “Scatterday” blog posts organised by Cinzia – my first time so I do hope I’ve read the instructions correctly.  What we have to do is find and upload photos in four categories all starting with “W”, expensive, exciting, music, and, for something quilting, a WIP.  So here goes – this is my selection.

Expensive – White Christmas:  Living down here in the Southern Hemisphere and celebrating Christmas in the summer,  it would be lovely to experience a white Christmas one year.  But that would entail a very expensive trip to Europe, no doubt.

Exciting – Workmen:  It is certainly exciting seeing the builders working away on our new home!

Music – While my Guitar Gently Weeps:  A beautiful sad song written by George Harrison, on a CD full of interesting music.  I’m a real sentimentalist and just love sad songs.

WIP Work in Progress:  Well, where shall I start?  How about this one? I did the hand stitched floral blocks from Alex Anderson patterns while travelling around in our caravan.  Next step was making the nine patch filler blocks.  And here it has stopped.  I need to design some sort of border to finish it off.

So that is my first Scatterday contribution.  Must go and check out the others who are taking part.

Your WIP quilt is beautiful. How about 'no border'. I've seen lots of modern quilts done that way recently.

Yes a white Christmas would be lovely to see but my body could only take business class and best and would cope even better with first class so that puts it well into the dreams least likely or needed to be fulfilled category.
Like your WIP

I wonder if we will see some more of your new home in future scatterday challenges?

Great W collection!

A white Christmas would be a nice experience, but yes, way too expensive.

Great set of photos for this week Jenny. Love your idea with White Christmas - that's thinking outside the box..

I would love a white Christmas, going to all the Christmas markets in Germany is on my bucket list.
Great photos.
