Redwork designs,new light,buttons books and movies.


I recently downloaded these Red work designs from Paula. I changed a few elements in the designs. I changed the summer block. The flag had stars etc on it and I made it to look like The Australian Surf Living Saving Flag. This flag is red on the top section and yellow on the bottom section. I also changed the "Fall" block to "Autumn". I even managed to find some watermelon material to put on watermelon block. The instructions and designs are very clear. Thanks for designing this Red work Quilt Paula.
I heard a knock on the back door today. It was the courier and I had a parcel to sign for.
My light had arrived. It was the "Duet" two light Floor Lamp in beige. Thanks to buysterlighting.com.au I will be able to do a heap more stitching at night time.

It was quick and easy to put together and since we took these photo's we have found an extension cord to connect it to the power point at the back of the lounge.This light is available in several other colours if beige doesn't suit you. The good thing about this light is that you can have either both globes on or just one,very economical. Thank you so much Maree for organising the quick delivery of our light.

I recently won some buttons from Sonya. These are made from porcelain and are just so beautiful. I know I have a cross stitch design of Noah's Ark somewhere in my books. These buttons will look great on the cross stitch. Thanks so much for the buttons Sonya.

On Saturday Ian Lucy and I made a quick trip to the city. Lucy wanted to watch
The Time Traveller's Wife. Ian went off to the Hardware store to spend some vouchers while Lucy and I went to the Movie. I really enjoyed this movie,although I didn't know anything about it beforehand. Lucy is part way through the book. I will have to read it after. Lucy has finished school for the year. We are planning to start walking together. I will be back in a day or so,I have won my first blogging award from Pauline and I have some decisions to make as I have lots of questions to answer and have to choose 6 people to pass the award onto.
Until then.
Happy days.
Bev C

I read The Time Traveller's Wife a couple of years ago. A wonderful book and I am so looking forward to the movie. It comes here in December.
Love the red stitching.

A wonderful show and tell, Bev! Nothing better than good light and Sonya's buttons are so special. I have held the book in my hand several times, but haven't bought it yet. So many more to read ...
