no move as yet

Nice to see some quilt pics on here. All lovely as always. This one is my latest - our group was all tasked to make a mariner's compass and extend from there.  DS#2's stepson, aged 5, loves anything to do with the ocean, including pirates, but I refrained from adding them so this could age with him into his teens and beyond, hopefully.  He loves it, as does his mum, which is very important LOL

We are still waiting on our move. I have filled as many boxes as I possibly can. Three trailer-loads full are down in Adelaide at a storage facility, son has a garage full; we even have them stacked up 3 high in the kitchen!  The hold-up is the tenant of the new house, who signed a contract until the end of May. Even though the current owner (our 'swappee') didn't sign, his ex-wife did, so it's still apparently legal and binding, even though said tenant has promised to look for somewhere to move before then. In the meantime swappee is filling up our storeroom and garage with his belongings, even a bed where he sleeps sometimes!

BEE - I do hope we'll be able to come over to NZ again and see you in your new home! It sounds like a great move for you all.

Hoping spring is on its way for those of you up north!  Autumn here is my favourite season - still warm in the day but lovely cool nights for sleeping.  No change of season colourings here though - we'll be able to see that next year when we'll be closer to cooler climes.

Fran, your quilt is lovely and the colours, so rich. Lucky grandson. Your move sounds a bit complicated at the moment but it's an adventure that once completed, I'm sure you'll look back on it and be glad it all worked out. It's an unusual type of sale. Nice to see you posting,

Perfect quilt for your grandson Fran. I am sure he can imagine the pirates for now. Your kind of moving adventures is what is keeping me in place here.

Fran, I can't imagine how you found the time to make that lovely quilt, with all that is going on in your life at the moment ! Well done, and lucky grandson.. Not a lot of sewing being done here but , as soon as the autumn tidy up has been done in the garden, I shall be turning my thoughts to fabric again !

Wonderful quilt Fran. Sounds like you are very busy with the move. We are all in our new place, but my quilt stuff is yet to be unpacked.
The time will go slowly at first, but a month will go by and it will be here before you know it.
Best wishes to you and your move!
Sara in Fla.
