I woke up this morning with the news of a bombing in Norway.  As the day passed, the news kept getting worse and worse.  What is wrong with this world?  I don't understand these people that choose to go to war with innocent victims.   My heart goes out to all of Norway at this tragic time.



Now I have been told by a couple of my dearest friends that whilst they love Nic, they are sick of seeing his picture everytime they click on my blog and that it is about time I did another post!!!  I haven't really got a lot for Show & Tell.  I am still working on Irish Circles and got distracted with another project, because I saw Jan and Christine's versions and had to make one myself.  The pattern is called Nancy Horsfall's Baby's Cot Cover. 



I still have A LOT to do but at least I have my fabrics sorted now and can get into the fun part of applique.


I did a little fabric shopping yesterday and came home with lots of blues and a little black.  


I just had to show you this picture.  This is me taking Buddy for a walk but unfortunately Max likes to come walking too.  You have to imagine them walking together down the street.  It is really really funny, Max  races ahead and frolics until we catch up and then smooches up to Buddy as if he is his long lost friend.


I was also lucky enough to sneak in a quick trip to Sydney last weekend to see Nic.  We went to Tooronga Zoo and this is what we came across when visiting the Meer Cats.  As we are in the middle of winter here in Australia,  the best way to warm up a cold tummy is to sit in front of a heat lamp.  He did not move the entire time we were watching - so cute.....

Sue-Anne, can you tell me what the vining blue stripe on left in your fabrics picture is? I would love to know. Your Nancy Horsfall quilt is looking lovely! Funny story about walking your pets. Thanks!

Nice to have you back and we all know about the plodding part of applique just say hello even if it's an up date on circles . It was nice to see Swan Lake progress last year and I look forward to the animal antics.
Have a good one!

We can't really question the actions of another, Norway has suffered a most terrible tragedy. I feel great sorrow for the victims, their families and the family of the perpetrator...there are no winners.
On a brighter note...I love your crib quilt....I have been making it in a class with Brigitte...mine is in 30's with some hexies thrown in.

Janet said...

No wonder you got seduced by the new quilt, it's very sweet. The animals are such pals that they love to be together obviously, that's pretty cool.
Dito Cardy girl's comment, I am thinking of all those who are suffering so badly.

Kathie said...

Working on another masterpiece I see. This is also going to be stunning! You must make people laugh, seeing you walk your animals!

I love the new quilt like everyone else. And as for Nic...no worries from the rest of us. We love the photos. Here in Canada our uniforms are boring compared to you...so post away Sue-Anne.
Love the photos as always.
To hear of such news from Norway...I agree what is this world coming to?

Devastating news from Norway, such a senseless act!

You always pick such beautiful projects and choose great colours. Love your work.

Karen said...

Yes, very sad about Norway. Such a pretty new project, love the soft colours. And, new fabric, that is always fun!!!

Shirley said...

What a very cute cot quilt Sue-Anne. Anything you want to share with us? I had to scroll down a bit further for another peek at your handsome son. Shameless I know. Meercats are so funny. Here in the UK we have really funny adverts called Compare the Market.com and to get the point over they have a Compare the Meercat.com. They are just so funny and I love it when a new one comes out.
