I spent Mothers Day at Monto to celebrate Danielle's first Mothers Day with her. She was helping to stage Monto's First Mothers Day Classic for Breast Cancer. We walked the 5 km fun run and thoroughly enjoyed it. I must admit the early morning start was a bit brisk and a sleep was necessary afterwards. I then stayed the night and caught up with the Mt Perry girls at patchwork the next day. I actually did get some sewing done. I am still working on my blocks ( up to number 5 of 15) I will take some photos when I have a few more finished. The new Pfaff and Glide threads are working well together.
A few days later I travelled to Cooroy for a High Tea Luncheon at High Tea Licious along with some of my old class mates from Mundubbera and Gayndah School Days.
Back to reality, I then did my 5 shifts in a row at work, finishing with my 2 night shifts. Oh boy, if the new copayment for bulk billed doctor's visits comes in in July 2015, we are going to be so much busier ( providing that Pathology Queensland still does the service ) as more people will end up in DEM instead of their GP. I will not enjoy night shifts then if we get any busier. There is only so much one person can handle at a time and I was certainly busy last week.
Back to the Ivanhoe house. In this photo you can see the laundry building under the tanks at the back. I have started the paint removal on it.
Back to quilting, I have successfully repaired the tiny hole I cut into a compass point, and am visiting Lisa of Quick Quilts soon to baste it on her A1 machine. We`are going to use Glide Water Soluble thread then I am going to quilt it on my Pfaff Grand Quilter.Am hoping to finish it for the Bundaberg Quilters Exhibition in August.
