My Thursday stitching girlfriends (Kwilting Katz) gave me a beautiful "O" birthday quilt - it is lovely and snuggly and has beautiful embrodiered butterflies appliqued on... Licorice loves it too and hogs it during the day...
Module 5 - Communication & Coaching Conversations - has arrived this week - still awaiting my results from Module 4 - so will need to get cracking and get this module finished before Christmas so I am back on track with the timeline to get it all completed (still have 11 modules to go... to complete the double diploma).
Have been making one of my Thursday girls a lovely green needle holder as is her birthday this Sunday so will wrap in green fabric for her - can you guess what her favourite colour might be?
Last club day on Saturday for the year for Quilt Club - so is a shared Christmas lunch, a few fun games, show and tell (yes I have to take my "O" quilt to show, so the girls can keep rubbing salt into the wound - and also my lovely "40 christmas' quilt hanging" my MumS made for my birthday).
Well had better go finish the needle holder and have a cup of milo before heading to bed.
Nite Nite and sweet dreams

Had yummy steak on the BBQ tonight for tea, for a grey cold day it got warmer and even blue skys shone again - so nice to have a crunchy salad, fresh potatoes and juicy steak - yum.
Well am off now to tidy up the kitchen and then get the sewing machine whirring again.
Hope you've had a great day.

And here are the completed 9 blocks, now to work out how to put them together and grow the quilt so it is big enough to use...
Now had better head away and do some housework, so I can work on Chris' quilt this afternoon, the weather is turning, getting windy and cold, so it will be a great way to spend the afternoon :)
Chat with you later
Luv J x

Amongst the number of sad things that have occured during October, our dear Amber dog was diagnosed with cancer on Friday, 26th October (we made the hard call not to go through all the medical treatments as we didn't want her to suffer any pain or see the inevitable changes that would begin to occur) - she came home with us for the weekend so we could say goodbye and Amber was then put to rest on the Monday amongst many tears and sorrow. It is very sad for us all not to have her around, even her continual barking at nothing is missed. She was 13 years old, and had gone deaf in the past year - a loyal companion to my husband and a great playmate to our daughters. It is weird though I am sure I hear her bark often late at night before I turn the last of the house lights off before I head to bed...
As we head into November, am looking forward to a month that is filled with laughter, rather than tears...
May your days be filled with love and joy
