Holiday count down has begun…..

Just 9 sleeps until I fly out to Hawaii…..the tickets have been collected, my suitcase is sitting empty in the corner of my bedroom, I have a list of things that I want to take, and my passport is literally burning a hole in my pocket!!

In the mean time, I have been keeping myself busy, going to a Taylor Swift concert last Tuesday at The Brisbane Entertainment Centre with my sister Wanda, niece Sharna and Leah.  It was a fabulous concert and a very late night, it took me all week to recover!

On Friday my friend Carolyn and I walked up Mount Coot-tha.  The walk took 2 1/2 hours and was both invigorating and exhausting at the same time.  Well worth the effort and a challenge we were very much up to!

The weekend was particularly busy with a Southern Cross Quilters GTG on Saturday, and a family outing on Sunday.


The finished Red and Green scrap quilt was my show and tell at the SCQ GTG. That brings the top total to 9 now.

This week I’m back working on my Carpenters Star blocks, with all the cutting done for another two blocks.  I have an idea in mind for sashings between the four blocks, let’s see how it develops shall we??

Tonight I cooked some chicken balls……500g  minced chicken meat, grated carrot, grated zucchini, shallots, sweet chilli sauce, fresh bread crumbs, seasoning and an egg.

I mixed the ingredients well and then put the balls into a mini muffin pan to cook in the oven.  They were very yummy served with roasted potatoes and peas!

Well that’s about it from me now,

Thanks for visiting…..
