Sort of busy.....

I have been walking with Rob (son) lately and his dog "Fatty"......
Fatty starts the walk ahead of us......


But on the way home he is certainly dragging on the lead... 


Pretty funny really.....

Another mini quilt for the sewing room....


Sadly that is it.....
I need to get on with things, 
more improvement needed by this little duck... lol

Warwick retreat....

Another wonderful retreat at Glenrose.....
A bit windy and chilly but very relaxing.....



Easy dinner....
hamburgers and chips....
Best burger I've had in years.....


Morning tea....


I was once again very slack taking photos....
very slack with everything I guess.....

Sandi giving information on a project we will be doing later this year.......


A few photos of projects the girls were working on....



I didn't take very many projects with me this time.....wanted to be lazy lol.....

I put my "whack and stack" top together
and will be adding the "postcards" randomly on the quilt top, a little different from the actual pattern..... hopefully I can add more postcards if I get to travel again.....

Love this fabric......


Mini quilts....

I did finish these at home, quilting and binding.....



Naughty shopping......
all essentials of course.....


A farewell photo.....


Thanks girls for another wonderful retreat.....
had the best time.....

The usual last coffee and cake stop on the way home.....


That's about it for this post.....

FNSI

Thanks Wendy for hosting another terrific night of stitching....


I started working on my projects  much earlier in the day......
when you feel the old mojo kick in then you need to go with it....
Most of what I did was preparation along with a little stitching ......
Next week I'm going on retreat to Glenrose so lots of cutting was needed.....
This will be a Whack and Stack quilt top for my postcards, I'll needleturn them on the top later........


Secret project all ready to start now.....


UFO Challenge project organised.....


An early start to another secret Christmas swap pressie.....


More postcards ready to stitch.....


Finally a little stitching to end the night .....


I hope everyone enjoyed their night as much as I did....
I'm enjoying a cuppa in bed this morning so I 
must get up shortly  as the mojo is still with me and I don't want to waste a minute of it.....
