Subi.... Outing.....June turns 21......


I do fit on this chair honestly.......



A little outing with Heather at a very nice cafe in Canungra......




Friday June 8th .......
our June turned 21......
Gosh another grandchild all grown up....
where have the years gone.....
Lunch with June...Heather and Liz.....



We were at the Green Frog Hollow cafe....


A family BBQ at home for dinner to help June celebrate.....




We (Heather and us) gave June a beautiful keepsake ring for her birthday....
Amethyst...her birthstone.....


It was so good to be a part of June's celebration.....
A great night but no-one seems to have any photos of the family ...... 
oh dear, how slack.....

Earlier in the week we had this cute visitor......
It was late in the afternoon so the light wasn't good for photos but you can just see him or her....lol


I have been busy sewing, I'll leave that for another post.....
Toodloooo....

A new plan.....

Hmmmmmm I do love a plan.....
So if I can crochet 2 blocks and 2 Suffolk puffs  a day, I should have this quilt finished in approximately 1 month......


I thought if I put it on here then there might be a chance of it happening.....
I am on a very serious mission this year to get all the big things done and then to have fun with smaller projects....
Wish me luck.....
Hope I can stick to that.....

Toodlooooo.....

I had a plan.......

at the beginning of my day but it.....
 " kinda got lost "
A nice relaxing crochet with my morning cuppa on the patio......
Not my favourite craft by a long way but I do love the project...... 
crochet hurts the poor old hands but I will soldier on......


Then off to the sewing room to finish the circle quilt top.....
Then I got a bit lost.......
sat around doing nothing for ages.....
We needed to go to the supermarket for a few odds and ends....
Heather popped in for a cuppa.....
Oh dear...
 what happened to my sewing plans.....
Well I did get on with it eventually.....
Tah dahhhh....


I'm in a hurry with the Mini Quilt BOM as the February one will be here this week and I haven't finish the last one yet.....
Guess what I'm stitching tonight ?


I decided to organize my UFO challenge  project.....
Cut it out, iron on the stitchery transfer so no excuses for not being finished on time......


So while I was looking for a zippy pouch to put the project in I found 2 pouches with projects waiting to be done....
Mmmmm had forgotten about these....lol....
traced, fabric and threads chosen hiding in the zippy pouch basket.....
Ooooops



Well it turned out to be a productive day after all my time wasting.....
So I'm off now and as you can see I have a lot to do......

Toodlooooo......

Oh what a feeling !!!!!

it is to finish a project that has been taking wayyyy to long..... it still needs to be sent to the quilter, hopefully soon....

 "Fleur " quilt top.......

First things first though......
While taking a photo I thought something seemed a bit odd so took another photo hoping it was just my photography.......
Then the " OMG " hit me......
2 blocks in the wrong place.....I couldn't believe my eyes....nearly cried....how could I be soooooo stupid.....


So back to the sewing room with unpicker in hand I got to work.......
Yahoo finally as it should be.....
I love this quilt and so pleased to have  the top completed.....


The following day I chose just to relax, maybe do a little stitching as well....
if I felt like it.....
Heather bought some rather delicious fruit scones and I made coffee, we settled back to enjoy a movie.....


When I looked around to see why it seemed so quiet and there they were.....
Father and daughter in noddy land......
How relaxed are they ?


A lovely quiet day had by all......
Toodloooooo
