I am sorting ... clothes I haven't worn for over 2 years.. for the sallies, kitchen cupboard stuff I haven't used for over a year (that's anything to do with baking!@!!), tools.. why do I need 10 screwdrivers (share them with my son) and I need to work out how many plants I'm taking.. I've collected succulents for 5 years but they sadly don't care the annual tlc since I became addicted to patchwork.
Any yummy.. Quilt Diva.. a wallhanging pattern thats 49" by 24" ..
and I am tracing it out so I can put it together while I'm living in the motel for a week. I have to find all the fabrics of course but hey, its a good way to sort out my fabrics ready for moving haha. It's so cool, I love her already. Have to make it look like me!!! And last but not least, the lovely Chris sent this fabric.. which has several Quilting sayings in panels ready to make into a wallhanging, quilt or cushions for my NEW sewing room. (I'm not sure if Quilting keeps me sane... I don't feel very sane these days haha). It made my day getting all this treasure Chris. You went to so much trouble to find things specially for me and I am so wrapped. You will have to come down when I get Diva finished.. or whenever.. Thank you Thank you thank you.
I did have some more bad news this week but I can't dwell on it. My dear beautiful friend in Brisbane who I love dearly like a sister has terminal cancer. The DR has been treating her for a heart problem over the last 8 months but ten days ago she became very ill and he decided to order an urgent MRI. She is on heavy pain killers for CA bowel, lungs, liver and kidney. No treatment possible. I remember when I lived next door to Fay she always had a terrible cough. The Dr treated her with medication but I guess she got used to it and never complained enough... she was making concrete paths and painting the flats. Fay walked 5kms to the library!!!!! She has been so fit and well until the last 8 months. I'm going to get the move over and hopefully get a cheap airfare for a long weekend very soon as I want to go and see her before she is too unwell like Dad and Aunty were.
UPDATE - PM a possible tennant came through at 2pm...and I think she might take it. She's my age, single, and new to PN. So fingers crossed she'll take it as I'd like someone nice to live in "my" house. She likes gardening so that's got to be good!
