A little finish and a little outing......

I have had this kit for quite some time now so I put it in my UFO Challenge list......
last project on the list for this year.....

"Window Shopper" by BeBe Bold.....
a great pattern for a very useful little bag, can't wait to use it......




Now for my little outing....
 lunch at our local cafe "Perk's"  with Heather and Corinne on Saturday.......



We had a nice lunch .... no photos this time....
but I did follow it with one of these yummy fruit and yoghurt biscuits.....


So nice to relax and enjoy a chit chat together.....

Ooooowaaaa !!!!!!

Oh dear.... our morning walk on Tuesday before stitching took a nasty turn.....
well our Sandi had a bad fall, flat on her face so Norreen and I jumped to assist.... fortunately we were only a few houses away from Sandi's place.....


Yes we were then "slaves" during the rest of the day......
nearly wore me out actually.....

Teresa brought  the wonderful morning tea .....
yummooooo


Silliness then went from bad to worse.....
Nor totally lost the plot.....



Sandi after a trip to the doctor.....
Some people will do anything to avoid stitching....


So that ended a very weird day and Sandi is on the mend so that is great news......

Flower Garden progress....



That's it for another day.....

FNSI part 2


The last FNSI for this year.....
Thanks for hosting another fun night of stitching Wendy....
A little secret stitching for me this time.....


It was a bit of a struggle stitching with most of my lap being taken up by Pippa.....


I also got a little bit more done of Windchimes....


It has been great joining in with other stitchers throughout the year.....
Thanks again Wendy.....

This week I was very lucky to win this gorgeous book from Sue Daley.......


Such beautiful quilts in this book.....
Decisions.....decisions.....




How lucky am I ?

My new mini quilt finish......
BOM mini quilt from Glenrose Patchwork....
Nice to be getting small projects done.....


That's it for now.....

How lovely......

.......to have another nights stitching with friends......
Thank you Wendy


Hope to see you join in.....

A little bit of my week.....

I was animal sitting (1 cat and 2 dogs) for a few days.....
When Heather came  home she had been to L'ucello's in Melbourne and bought me a great pack of beautiful fabrics.....
lucky me....


Monday morning cuppa with Gav after his ultra sound ....


A lovely butcher bird warbling above us, I think he might be waiting for us to leave him a few crumbs......


Tuesday stitching with the girls was fun as usual......
A yummie morning tea given to us by Sandi....


A flower garden hexie....


Cheated a bit......
 here are a couple more.....


My Liz gave me this pretty geranium (a cutting she struck for me) it is now in full bloom.....
I guess it's not very exciting to lots of people but for me to grow anything is quite an accomplishment.....
Jimboomba is a difficult place to grow anything at all.....


Well that's all folks.....

Tuesday out and about....

It has been a while since we "the Tuesday girls" have been out and about so it was great to all be together again.....
Mt. Tamborine.....
Gallery walk was the venue.....


Lunch at Birchgrove Nursery......


They have such beautiful roses.....
as much as I would love to buy some unfortunately Jimboomba isn't a great place to grow them and I'm not much of a gardener either.......






We should have been stitching our flower garden blocks really so I made my block the next day.......
