Happy Australia Day everyone!
Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
It's 35 degrees here and we're seriously hot and sweaty!!!
Having a barbie with Australia-shaped rissoles, sausages and salads ~
watching the tennis (of course!)

Now on to some finishes!!
The above is the first block in Bunny Hill Designs BOM called 'Snowbound' ~ you will find it here. I am really enjoying the needle turn and love the cute snowman!

Below is Robyn of Daisy Quilts 'Embroidery Scissors Companion'. Lovely pattern with nice easy instructions. I love it! It has a little pin cushion attached and has reinforcing in the bottom to protect the tip of your scissors. You can find more details about this little case here.

Hope you are all having a great day!
I am off to have some pavlova topped with bananas, strawberries and peaches
(not forgetting the cream!!)

Pavlova? Oh that is just so unfair...
You didn't paint that gorgeous picture yourself did you? I know what a great painter you are!
The block is so sweet....but it's kind of hard to think of snow in this heat. The needlecase too - very nice!!
Glad to have you back, looks like you had fun at the tennis!
I'm stuck listening to my family watching the cricket...
yes, that's right, poor me...

Beautiful pic - and I enlarged so I could see it was yours.
Your snowman is cute - we are a bit cooler here today.
Lovely scissor case - always good when there is somewhere to keep the pins and needles too.
Happy Australia Day - hope you enjoyed that Pavlova
