Happy New Year!

I hope a Happy Christmas was had by all - and a very Happy New Year to everyone!

Here in Victoria it has been hot, hot, hot!!! On New Year's Eve our younger son, Mark, and his fiance Rachael, were married in our garden. 41 degrees with the "added attraction" of a strong hot northerly wind!!!! However, the ceremony was held during the morning and was kept short, photos quickly taken, then everyone inside for the wedding breakfast. A beautiful day for our lovely family! And guess what we gave them as a wedding present? Of course - a quilt!!! The attached photo shows (left to right) David, Rachael, Mark, and me on the end. Behind us are our daughter-in-law Susanne and older son Paul. Susanne made Rachael's dress and we all thought she did a stunning job!

Now that things have returned to normal, I'm looking forward to getting some sewing done, and new designs completed!
'Till next time,
