I am a quilter who enjoys both pictorial and traditional and like learning new techniques.

I live in The Blue Mountains 100 miles w of Sydney what is called City in a national Park

and you. do you visit katrinas site often? there are several beautifully worked longbourne quilts shown. it is an amazing beauty. and you're down to the borders? i am sooo excited waiting for you to post pics!:)) our problem, 33 has his life together - sorta. he's our only one, but his mate is in desperate need of growing up. no worry of them moving in - the shopping too lousy here. she'll stay in the city. which is the root of their problems. all financial. they are draining me, i cannot seem to get hime to understand that my earning days are over. i cannot continue to bankroll thier living expenses while she goes shopping. oh well.. we all do manage to survive in the end tho don't we?
i read where you are. i tried to follow the fires. bit this year it seems like the world is burning up. the media reports w such histeria, not sure. what is fact or no. our colorado fires this year, devestaing fires in several places in california. where i live we were sureounded by fires. our main way out of here to the south was closed for several weeks. on the ridge south of us, prevailing winds here fr the south..couldn't breath. we are heading in to winter, and reading the NOAA report just now we might get our first snow by nxt friday. told my husband i think the air patterns are fluctuating too much or much more than normal. our weather is all over the place. has been such a strange weather all year. i read that the last of the apple harvest is almost finished so i guess we just sit back now and let the skys do whatever they want. we aren't farmers but live in an area tjat is agriculture based. local economy dependent of farming, so bad weather year has been tricky. and of course i yanked my vegies out in disgust by june, silly little stunted things - too cold, too hot, too cold, too hot...just sitting there barely developing. left a few egplants and tome in but they didn't taste good, so their care the remaining months of growing was a huge waste of time. and i had soooo much other work the time could have been better ised for. i am ready to just curl up and quilt or sit and sew..have to admit tho ...i would rather be doing something to just enjoy the sit down time rather than be stressing over gift making and travel plans. oh well ---january will be here eventually. my time.
