WOOFA and OPAM January

It's always good to have that little push to get things done.  Being on school holidays, I try to make the most of spare time. Sadly not a lot of that while surviving through this drought but sewing is always my sanity. A couple of finishes for OPAM ... thanks Kris.

A tote bag for Grandson J's farm animals.

A portable change mat for DIL

and a couple of neck scarves for working in the dusty cattle yards.

I also got to spend a day with good friends at our little patchwork group and worked on a WOOFA ... thanks Cheryll.

A few blocks of needle turn applique towards block 3 of A Merry Christmas Garden.

If this post is sounding familiar, grandsons no. 3 and 4 are only 2 months apart.  Proud grandparents to 4 beautiful little boys.

I really need to get a riggle on with those baby quilts.  It's also back to work tomorrow ready for the start of the school year while hubby continues to feed cattle and check waters. My horse riding came to an abrupt holt a week ago when I was rudely dumped on the ground on my rear end. No fault of the horse as she got a fright and I just was ready for her sideways jump ... left me mid air with nowhere to go but down ... with a thud!  Nothing broken luckily but lets just say I can't sit down for very long.

Time to walk it off ... maybe make a cuppa and cross everything that the storm clouds on the horizon are kind and dump some much needed rain this afternoon.

And Just Like That it's 2020

A little bit of 2019

With my amazing family by my side (and about to welcome another grandson) we will tackle 2020 head on. 

With my wonderful friends near, far and online, we will strengthen friendships and forge new ones.

I have no words for the fires and drought, only "devastation" ...
