January roundup

It’s been a fun month.  And busy.  A week at the beach with all of the family – great weather and a week of the best weather we’ve had in over 10 years that we’ve been going to Phillip Island.  And being joined by our Hungarian exchange student and Lucy’s host brother from France made it even more fun.

But the most exciting thing happened the day we returned from holidays when Lucy came home from 12 months in France.  It’s great to have her home.


And then Eszter’s parents and sister arrived from Hungary and stayed with us for a week or so.  A very full house but so much fun.

To finish off the month our gorgeous eldest daughter Ella turned 18.  We celebrated on Australia Day with about 50 family and friends at Sewjourn.  And the celebrations continued with a party with her girlfriends on Saturday night.


But now the holidays are almost over – back to school for the younger two .  Rowing and netball have started again and with Lucy changing schools the past couple of days of holidays were filled with getting books and uniforms sorted.

But, I did manage to do a bit of my first UFO for 2017 – the Lucy Boston quilt.  I completed another one and a half blocks and have started another.  Not sure if that truly counts for substantially progress  but I figure this is a UFO that I will work on continuously between the year.  (Note I didn’t publish this post at the time as I was waiting to get photos but still don’t have photos of  them all so maybe in next month’s post!)


So which one on the list is next?  I think  No. 7 on my list – the Kaffe quilt which just needs the binding finished as it’s still a busy few weeks.  I missed the cut off for Meredithe’s link up for this month  (even when I first did this post a few weeks ago….) but you can look here if you want to see what others are up to.
