In August 2020 I started a "Big Patch Quilt" inspired by Hopewood Homes beautiful bespoke "Big Patch Quilts". Susan's garden is also stunning and her IG feed is beautiful so I encourage you to check it out. This week I finally got back to this quilt and it's been lovely to have the machine out and sewing again. I decided to put on "Sea Change" on Netflix starting from the beginning on the TV in the background. Back in the day when I was single and going out we used to stay home on a Saturday night to watch Sea Change at 7.30 pm and then go out afterwards. It's such a lovely Australian Show, down to earth no frills. I have a photo of the actual town this was filmed in however it was pouring rain and the photo was taken up on a hill inside our 4WD. It's a photo of the bridge at Barwon Heads, Victoria and the bridge is a big part of the Sea Change story as the town is cut off with the bridge needing repairs [in the TV show].
Back to my quilt, I've finally finished sewing my rows one way on the quilt and now I need to start sewing the other way to make squares then I'll need to bind it. In these photos I've added another row of sewing in between the larger spaces. In 2022 I want to do some more crafts and finish this quilt off and also a crochet knee blanket that needs to be finished as well.
That quilt will be lovely. I need to get my sewing machine back up and running too. I never watched Sea Change but that may be because we didn’t have TV for many years when the children were growing up 😉ReplyDelete
Everyone fell in love with "Diver Dan" played by David Wenham.Delete

Many congratulations to your son, and you must be rightly proud of your two lovely young people. I smiled at your comment on their annoyance when you offer advice; I remember friends of ours had a poster on the wall when their children were teenagers which read something like: "Fine, go ahead, don't listen to adults,leave home, pay all your own bills and organise your own life while you still know everything" :). Yes, Covid numbers are scary here too, with a health service teetering on the edge and that apparently makes it a good time to reduce travel restrictions for those entering the country or returning from holiday ...Hope you can stay safe.
Ha Ha, love the poster...yes they are adults but not really adulting so to speak. Happy New Year to you and hope your family are keeping safe. They say the next 6 weeks here in Brisbane are going to be critical and a state of emergency.Delete
Your quilt is going to be beautiful! Some of my favorite colors. I've admired Susan's style for some time.ReplyDelete
