This one is a little dark but I considered putting boarders around each of these larger blocks.
Then I laid it on the bed and discovered that I was 2 entire blocks short... So had to cut a few more bits, sew them etc.
Im nearly there, have them in 2 rows now... just need an hour or two to get them done.
my eldest, the froglet turned 19 on Monday, she bought me these flowers last friday as I went into hospital for a day procedure, all seems to be fine so Im hoping when I ring for results tomorrow that I will be given a clean bill of health and can get stuck into training for my next event.
The only problem with the new one to start with is that it was like ironing on top of a pile of pillows.
I have my christmas ride with my group on Sunday and we have been told that the 'best' dressed for christmas will win a prize.... always one to jump to a challenge I have as you can see put antlers on my helmet.... I have much much more but will reveal after sunday.... I am so pleased with my shopping skills and how I have adapted certain items to become 'bike bling' I dont always get into the full Christmas spirit but my beast will certainly be looking the part this year!

Today the girls that I will be riding with and I rode to Strathewen, I did a nice 64km it took us 3 hours as we had a nasty headwind on the way home and then got rained on several times. I even copped some hail on my last bit home.
I'm hoping to get a little more done of my quilt on my day off tomorrow but I am working on Cup day.
Here in Melbourne we are in our spring carnival for horse racing and on Tuesday the entire nation stops for this race (so they say!) Bit like some of the big overseas horse races, I'm not going to complain about the extra money!
A lot of people have taken Monday off as an extra day to extend their weekend to 4 days, the roads have been empty and Cole's was incredibly empty, so good!

They did sausage sizzles, lots of sausage sizzles and a big dinner with great auction items. They raised funds together and individually. It was a hard slog but they got over the line and some.
They along with 1600 other riders raised funds to hopefully help find cures to the many cancers that people die from daily.
I drove down to Brighton to cheer them and the other riders on. I wore my Team Lynne t shirt in honour of my friend who lost her fight a few months ago to cancer, I was touched when one of the girls told me that she thought of Lynne while she rode. I managed to meet one of the riders who is doing all 5 rides along with a bunch of other ambassadors I see her on facebook regularly but hadn't physically met her until today.
Most of the events that I do raise funds for something, have you done an event because of the personal challenge or for the fund raising?
