Finished for Christmas!

I started this St. Nicholas many years ago, stitching done waiting to be finished. It was featured in an American Patchwork and Quilting magagzine and was designed by Cindy Taylor. I chose a different border for my wall hanging.
This table runner is another project that has waited to be finished. I changed the border because I wanted to use the Christmas lights fabric. This was featured in an Australian Handmade magazine and was designed by Joy White. There are a couple of additions of my own as well.
That's all for now,

A Day in Melbourne

The flags were flying for Oprah. The City was full of people today.
I always enjoy walking through the arcades. This time of year they are decorated with everything Christmas.

There were people everywhere today. It seems the Christmas rush has come early this year.

There were four of these jokers above this shop.

The poinsettias always add lots of colour this time of year.

I saw these pretty flowers in a bucket outside one of the shops.
I managed to get some of my Christmas shopping done.
Until next time,

My walk yesterday

Yesterday I went for a walk along the Warburton Trail, this time I started at Woori Yallock and walked to a place called Launching Place and then returned to Woori Yallock.

There was a lot to see along this track.
The sheep looked content in their fields

and one who thought the grass was greener over the other side of the fence!

We have had lots of rain during winter and spring and it is nice to see some water lying around.

This bird was taking a rest on the post.

I was not the only one walking yesterday!

It was nice to see a couple of deer in the fields.

Also some emus!

and an ostrich!

and a goat.

There were plenty of hay stacks in the fields and it was interesting to see how this farmer piled his hay with the help of his tractor.

It was a very enjoyable day walking along the track. A lovely sunny day.

That's all for now,
