A top 10 present!
Above is the Hans Heysen print that hangs above our bed. Hans Heysebn is more famous for his Australian landscapes from the 1800's but this is a little different. I think it may be his daughter, I'll have to check my research!
My sister found it , then very nicely organized my present illiterate hub to give it to me for Christmas. Apparently it look like me and she's on an old singer, so between that and my two favourite people being involved in the giving, it is very special to me. Definitely a top 10 gift, and very high up the 10. A challenge to bloggers to think about and post a "Top 10" gift. (I'm thinking about trying it for my profile shot, but it's hard to get it straight without glare.)
Had great fun with the Chenille. For those interested, Chenille in quilts is very big over here, there is a lot of new material in the shops and it retails for up to $42 per metre. You don't want to get too intricate with it, big squares interspersed with a normal print generally look good. Very tactile and cosy, great for kids. I have about 1 and a half little cot quilt tops done since yesterday and tomorrow I'll show. My friends are enjoying their shares as well.
Big weather news! As you can see from the photo of my Red Gum out in the back yard, the clouds were closing in last night and as we speak, we've had over 9 mms or almost 40 points of rain-probably a little late but it is filling my tanks and meaning I wont have to shower with a bucket or bail water from the bath to my plants for a while so I am very happy today! Anyway, after being a lady who lunches and cuts up Chenille yesterday I need to get some work done. Have a great day.
