Busy Week....

 I've had a busy week with a quick trip to the big smoke to visit family and do same Christmas shopping... One thing I always enjoy about driving down to Perth this time of year is seeing all the Western Australian Native Christmas Trees in bloom... 

They grow along both sides of the road and even though it a scruffy looking tree the flowers are gorgeous.... 




I got home on Wednesday for our Patch Christmas dinner. I was to busy chatting to get any photos of the table etc.                                                          We don't exchange gifts but each member donates non perishable foods to make hampers for folk in our town for Christmas... but we did receive a small goodie bag to take home''

Today I decided it was time to go into the Cave and do some sewing on my WOOFA challenge "Urban Owls" The last border has more Foundation Piecing to do sew I busily cut out the 7" strips to be cross cut into 3" X 7" but when I went to sew them they were a bit short....




after re- reading the instructions properly realised I had to cut them 3" X 7 1/2" .. 

Now I either have cut more or do some fudging....


Must away and put the kettle on for a cuppa before I decide ?

Stay Safe n Well...   

   





     Happy Christmas   Maria XX

  2. Delicious looking goody bag and lovely flip flop ornaments. Neat! Good luck with that cutting and stitching. I have to be so careful with measurements. I'm a bit hopeless at quilt math. What a gorgeous flower on that tree!!

  5. What a great idea to donate goods instead of giving to each other. Will suggest that to my group next year. Ouch feel your pain about the cutting.

  9. We have our own version of Christmas Tree here in New Zealand. The pohutokawa tree has crimson stringy type flowers rather like a dahlia and they are tipped in yellow. This native coastal growing tree in known as the New Zealand Christmss Tree as it flowers over summer.
    It's always good to donate food items to a good cause at Christmas functions. And your jandal ornaments are so cute,

  12. Lovely tree in your part of the country, sometimes the scraggiest plants have the best flowers. I reckon a bit o fudging and you could make it work. We always donate and give pantry items instead of gifts we don't really need.

  13. THose trees are beautiful Maria! Isn't it strange how the one country can have such vast differences? Hopefully when these restrictions have settled, travel might be on the cards again and we'll be able to share each others scenery! Im glad im not the only 'fudger'! I really should slow down sometimes....but then, where's the fun in that? Merry Christmas and Big sugary hugs :o)

  14. The Christmas bush looks lovely. I do like the idea of giving for a hamper at your Christmas lunch and I hope you get your border sorted out one way or another.
