Challenge is No Longer a Challenge!

"Josephine's Love Quilt"

I've got it done finally; 2012's Challenge Quilt stitching is complete. And her name...well I took inspiration from a quilt made by Frederica Josephson from Sydney in Annette Gero's book "The History of Fabric". Both JulieAnn & I attended a seminar in Wagga Wagga a few years ago & were very fortunate to purchase the book & have Annette sign it.

One of the larger pieces of fabric in my bagged selection was  "Love Is". So somehow, there became Josephines Love Quilt. I named it when only had the first few stars completed. I would really loved to have kept on going, but was limited to the fabrics left.

Not a regular baker; this was a huge undertaking.
Black Forest Birthday Cake

Is definitely soup weather; this was a hit!
 On Sunday just gone we took a roadtrip to the snow - about 2 hours drive from home in the Snowy Mountains. 

Just Chilling......

Warm & toasty by the fire
