There is of course another quilt in the cedar box at the foot of the bed, should it get colder. And the Basket Quilt resides during the day ,at night it is on my side of the bed as my knees ache if cold. Gosh gone are the days of no bedcovers, or on and off. No more temperature surges thank goodness.
Then onto the hallway, this is the quilt that is opposite the front door. This was made in 2001 to celebrate the Centenary of the Federation of Australia. Read more about the Federation of Aus here http://australia.gov.au/about-australia/our-government/australias-federation
You will note there is no Northern Territory borderline, this wasn't declared until 1911 when the NT was transferred from South Australia.
This quilt is made from wool and I really love it, fun and nice to stitch and quilt and it really looks great. Even tho, as you can see it was wrought in 2006 but the colours are still very bright and, even if I say so myself, it looks great hanging there.
And to relax at night I have been making some new fingerless gloves. I have tried a couple of patterns but I really like this one as it fits snug to the hand. And once worn, my hands would definitely not be without them in the winter months.
his usual hobby, and I am runing and ducking for cover before he sees this.
