A QUICK LINK UP POST.

 This will be short and sweet, to link my QAL flimsy that I have participated in with Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs.

It isn't quilted yet, though I have done one row of quilting, but having my back so sore & trouble with my left ear has left me very, very deflated.  We also had a trying and tiring trip to Sydney to sort out the NDIS review for my younger brother which happens in May.  There is to be a lot of thinking about what we need to do as he ages &  we get older.   With the chaotic world we live in at the moment, it is all getting too much for me.  It is why I've been so quiet on my blog, but I do need a good talking too and a kick up the proverbial..................😌

This one she titled Macaron Mystery and when finished I will be handing it over to a special person as a wedding gift.  No name to be mentioned yet.
Well that is about all from me today.
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend, please take care and hugs from down under.
Susan.

    1. Thanks Eileen. I love making things & giving them away. Family can be hard at times & there is only the two of us now, so I need to take care of some of it.

  3. I think that those of us who have hobbies are lucky when we have stressful times as they focus our minds on other things. The quilt is beautiful, I don't know how you manage to put something so lovely together so quickly.

    1. Thanks Jo & I am hoping it's not too girly for the male half of said recipients. This has been on the go for a while as we got instructions once a month since about July last year & I'm a bit behind getting it quilted as I'd had a few issues with the big machine, but I enjoy.

    1. Thanks Rosie. Cheryl comes up with some good names for her mystery QALs and I tried to pick colours which reminded me of tasty macarons & luckily had all of it in the stash. Yours was one of Cheryl's mysteries too.
