It ain't half hot!

Today I said farewell my dear mum Maisie, she has been staying with me from W.A. for the last 9 weeks
I find it harder every time I put her on the plane to send her home.
You don't really think of your parents ageing when you leave home at 18 to live on the other side of the country. She has always been my inspiration!
So many of the quilts in the shop have been made by her. I will take some photo's in the next couple of weeks and post them.
I know am very lucky to have had her all these years, but it still doesn't make it easier. Hopefully i will have her for a few more. She turns 90 this year.

Anyway thought you would like the colour combination of the cherries and the gorgeous orange in the centre of my bowl.
The flower necklace was a vest in it's last life, also very pretty for a belt.


  1. How lovely to have had nine weeks with your Mum, she is such a lovely lady.

    Hope you are surviving the heat!
