But early this morning before we woke the phone call came in stating that the truck with bobcat would arrive within the hour. Mad rush for showers, breakfast and child to school..Last day before Christmas Hols.
Excavations for the new shed are in progress, l have one very happy Hubby.
What a mess, you do not want the red dirt on your shoes. It travels though the house and is very difficult to remove so lucky we have a NO shoes on in house policy.
Checking the levels was the easy part, like with most men they want to take just a little more off the top. Ooooppps, we hit water. That's right no water in the house all day...... have been promised we will have water in time to cook diner.
Jen how are your Reno's going,. Would like to see any photo's you may have taken.
These are three patchwork blocks made up especial with Christmas in mind, my dearest Hubby made me the frames to suit. I am so very lucky to have so much support.
The tree wall hanging was made some time ago when the children were very small, and we needed to replace our Christmas tree but couldn't make up our mind whether to go with a real tree or store bought so this did that year. We went store and now this year we again have to decide for the future years as they arrive upon us.
Hope you enjoyed my small show and tell.

I purchase this template at the Brisbane Craft and Quilting expo.
Have not had the opportunity to use until now. Took a couple of minutes to get the hang of what to do...... there is a fare amount of pressing......before you can start.
Once you have the fabric organised you can start takes a short while to cut out and you guessed it more ironing.... this time you are trying to get the cresses out of the fabric.
Then it is time to open out and iron the links open. Make sure you do not cut the end link to close to the end of your fabric, as you need room to flip last link out and have room to sew 1/4"inch.
The template is great for boarders on a quilt or individual blocks. I have made a table runner for the Christmas table.
