Sweet sixteen.


Lately I have been doing some hand stitching. Working on the blocks from "Midsummer Garden" which is a delightful pattern from Gail. I made the yellow centres just a little bit bigger to use up the yellow material I had.
I have completed the nine squares and have cut out the joining strips etc. I got my sewing machine back from its service on Saturday and can't wait until I have a reasonable amount of time to get back into sewing. I had to wait so long because the part had to come from Japan.
Today is Lucy's 16th Birthday. Have an extra special day Lucy and enjoy your day at the Footy this coming Sunday. Lucy is a keen St Kilda supporter and she had an exciting time yesterday watching them win again.
Happy days.
