Oh dear ..... so far behind.....

 Gosh time flies when life gets busy.....

Of course our new family member has/is taking so much of my time.....

" Poppy "



Toys everywhere.....



We are struggling a little with the energy of this little girl.....

What have we done..... lol....

Gavan is on blood thinners so her sharp claws and teeth are causing a bit of a problem.....

When she is good then they enjoy a little nap together....


Right that is enough on the puppy overyload....

My sewing has been on hold, can't let her in my sewing room yet....

I did manage to do some of this cross stitch.....


Online shoppping is ceratinly something I can do but probably not  a good idea....
I did manage to track this fabric down from 
"Cross Stitch Corner"
I was so excited as it is an old Tula Pink range....


Churn dash progress.....
I need to add borders but very happy with the way it has come together....


2nd churn dash quilt lay out, as soon as I can get to the sewing room I will put this together.....


Another Waldon Garden block done....


More shopping.....
this will be my Christmas quilt for my lounge chair.....



A few coffee outings with Gavan.....



This one is a banana cake with cream cheese icing.....
Homemade for this one....


Well I think that might be enough for this post......

Our new baby.....

 We decided it was time to get a little puppie.....

Our house has been very lonely after our "Pippa" left us a couple of years ago .....

We did have Rob's dog "Fatty" during the last 2 yeas since Rob has been living with us but sadly it was time to say goodbye to him as well, just a short while ago.....

It's time....

Our first meeting....

just a couple of weeks old here....

A little Jack Russell Terrier pup....


Progress photos .....
Here she is with her Mum.....


Today we went to see her again.....
She is such a sweetie.....
Her Mum's name is actually "Sweetie".....

Our girl's name will be " Poppy "


Gav is very excited and can't wait for her to come and stay with us....
2 more weeks and then the fun will begin..... lol....

Heather took a little video of her ......


 On our way home we stopped off for a little light refreshment at a local cafe ......


I did get some sewing done as well .....
 churn dash blocks..... photo soon.....
A pleasant day had by all .....

Sunday Stitchers retreat

 "The Outlook" at Boonah was our venue for this yeaars retreat.....

Lots of fun was had by all, chatting... sewing and eating of course....

We met at "Revival Cafe" for lunch....



Great things to see along the pathways in the town ....





A little retail therapy at a wonderful old country style shop with everything from mens workwear to quilting fabric....

"Maynards"


Then on to the serious business of the retreat....


The girls certainly were working hard.....
Alison...


Sandi....


Norreen....


Cheryl....


Susan....


De....


Lynda working on her crocheting....


Chooky was going to join us but sadly covid changed her plans.....
she managed to do a little sewing even though she was unwell.....
Maybe next year she could join us....


My sewing....

I only needed to add borders as the tops were made by other girls ....
They are all charity quilts.....





Sadly only did 2 churn dash blocks....

I must get a wriggle on to get more done as
Chooky will be cracking the whip soon.....


Obviously we enjoyed sweet treats.....





Susan and I were selected to organise the "Mystery Project" this year ....
we decided on placemats for "Meals on Wheels"
Great job girls....


A small gift for their hard work....


There were a lot more projects doen by the girls but I seemed to have missed taking photos of them....
The kangaroos outside my bedroom....
Not a great photo through the flyscreen, nice to see them so close to the building......



Well that's about it for this retreat.....
I had a great time with wonderful company....
Happy sewing ....
