Just random stuff.....


We had a busy day on Thursday..... 
Doctor's appointments, shopping and lunch.....

I decided to buy myself a little gift.....
out with the old and in with the new, it has little Swarovski crystals where the numbers should be .....
adds a lovely sparkle to the time.....


Yummie Country Omelette ......


When we arrived home there was a parcel waiting for me....

yayyyy my blog book for 2016.....
I  was a bit late getting last years holiday posts up to date but I'm back on track now.....



It is so nice to sit and have a read with a cuppa....

I have also finished this cute little kit from

 Hatched and Patched called "Little Flower Needlebook"




I'm off now to have dinner.....

Pretty birthday flowers........

Pretty flowers make a big difference to the day.......

especially this day..... 8th June.....


Well I have decided to get on with this quilt..... 
I am machine blanket stitching (wash your mouth out with soap Helen) this one which is soooo unlike me but I just want to get it done and out of the way.....
OMG I was even sewing over a bit of dust.... 
that's how long it has been waiting.....
how terrible is that ?


Well this is a short and sweet post so I'm going to get back to it.....

A fun day......


This week we had  heaps of fun.....
Sandi had organised a fun scrap booking day for us, lots of giggling and being naughty.....
Our teacher...... Miss Sandi....


Sandi had put together quite a few little kits for us to make on the day.....




She had us working soooo hard that we forgot to have lunch......
so no photos of food this time.....

Thanks so much for a great day Sandi......

Tuesday get together.....


We enjoyed our first get together at Nor's new house sadly Teresa wasn't able to be with us so being naughty girls we headed to a lovely cafe just down the road for morning tea.....


 This cheese cake was soooo yum....



We did go back to Nor's and did a bit of stitching......
Well you will just have to take my word for that as I forgot to take a photo of my stitching....

Thanks girls for another lovely day....

I have started preparing projects  that I will be taking to retreat at the end of this month.....

I bought this kit last year so it is all cut out and ready to sew.....
each block is crocheted around the outside and then joined together when they are finished....
so I did a practice run of one of the blocks.....


I'm sure I am going to enjoy this making this quilt (small).....

So it is Toodles from me again.....

Another enjoyable day with ......

the Sunday Stitchers......

My goodness they do look quiet but there was plenty of laughing and chatting.....


The Birthday Girls for this month.....

Tatyana and Maria.....


Show and Tell.....
Marilyn's wonderful Sewing Basket.....



Tatyana's lovely bracelet......


and my 2 finishes for me........
I have had this panel for sometime (long time actually) ......
a gift from Sandi.....
now I am happy to say it is proudly hanging in my play house kitchen (grannie flat)......


I bought this bookmark in a beautiful lace shop in Venice last year.....
but not being much of a reader apart from craft patterns I didn't really know what to do with it so it sat in the cupboard which is such a waste for something so lovely.....
now it is hanging in my sewing room and looks very pretty.....


Thanks ladies for a fun day.....

so once again it is  toodles from me..........
