    Sorry, I don't, but what I would love to find, are some pine cones, with which I can make Christmas decorations with my grandchildren.

    hi Everyone this came over my facebook page thought some of you might be interested in it 

     Landline is celebrating 30 years on ABC TV and you help mark the occasion - with commemorative quilt from squares created by you.
    The theme is Life on the Land, which could mean animals, vehicles, landscapes: whatever regional and rural life means to you.
    Use your favourite fibre, yarn, and thread, and create something you're happy to hand over permanently.
    Here are the creative specifications:
    Finished size 15 cm x 15 cm square (max 2 cm thick) with finished edges (binding).
    Feature any techniques, ie knitting, crochet, patchwork, felting, embroidery, applique, weaving, dyeing, spinning, lacemaking.
    Use any colours you like.
    Feel free to use texture and embellishment.
    More info here:

    NO pressure but I know several of you enjoy a good quilting experience etc.

    @strongcoffee that painting is amazing!
    @melclarity your poem was beautiful and gave me a good cry ( funny how everything is connected , I had just posted to another discussion that one of the best  things I was told by a psychologist was “ it’s ok to cry” so I don’t mind a good cry for happy as well as sad.)

    How clever is this chair design? 

    As the child gets taller, you move both the step and the seat!

    I’d probably add some sort of seat belt tho!

    What a wonderful project for a Crafty Handy Man or Woman!
