Long time no post....oops

I've been so slack, things just get in the way sometimes....
Busy with family stuff also nasty bugs making me sick but I'm back on deck now.....
So this will be a quick catch up post....
Sunday Stitchers retreat.....
6th September....
Unfortunately I wasn't able to go, it was our first retreat for this group but I couldn't leave Gav on his own just yet.....
I decided to have my own retreat with Gav....sort of...lol....
So I did heaps of sewing and even made scones for my morning tea.....
The girls took me on the retreat journey with them, messaging if course......they even shopped for me....
New projects....Oh no....



I even received gifts....
Sandi gave me this lovely fabric with a pre_printed stitchery panel....
"Willowbrook" by Natalie Bird....
I have been eyeing this off for while now...
Thanks so much Sandi....


Another lovely surprise from Susan...
A gorgeous pin cushion kit...
She knows me well, I do love a pretty pin cushion.....
Thanks Susan, love it.....


The girls sure made me feel part of the weekend, lots of face time chats and photos....
Thanks girls....


I enjoyed my scones with Gav and Heather.....




Now onto my weekend of sewing...
I worked on my UFO challenge projects....
Christmas Ornie was No. 9
Not quite finished....


No. 6 on my list....



 Men's charity bag .....


I quilted my " Circles " quilt ....
then did the binding so a very good finish for the weekend....
I still haven't taken a photo of it yet.....


I'm so pleased the girls from SS group had a terrific time away, hopefully I will be able to join in the fun next year.....
That's it for now....

A special Tuesday.....

Stitching was at Sandi's this week and she had a very yummie morning tea for us......
Lovely sponge cakes with apple strudel and custard centres.....


Also.....
Sponge cakes with strawberry and cream centres.....
Sandi bought a pie maker and is using us as guinea pigs....
we aren't complaining either.....
They were so good.....



I had a little surprise for the girls this week....
So they sat on the lounge with their eyes closed like good little girls while I put the bags in front of them.....




I wanted them to have a ....
"Just because" gift from me.....


My "3 besties" .....
I'm so pleased they loved their quilts.....
Each quilt had pieced  stars in the design and they are my 3 stars....... 

Another fun day......

An unusual outing.....

This  was a very unusual outing for us....
"Seniors week" 
The Logan Council had an event for seniors week so Sandi thought it was a good idea to check it out.....


It turned out being a great fun day.....

Nor and Sandi tried the virtual glasses....
Teresa and I had fun watching these 2.....





Nor was obsessed with getting a free bucket.....
So after standing in a long queue we all got one......


We also potted succulents in a glass jar...
Gosh it's fun attending "oldies" day.....


On the way back to my home for stitching we decided we had to have scones, jam and cream so a quick stop at Woolies.....
Sooo pleased we did , they were yum.....


A busy day but heaps of fun and laughter and of course NO stitching.....
