Keeping up with my posts


This pin cushion I made was part of our Friends in Stitching online groups Christmas pressie swap.

It came as a  little kit and we had to make it before March this year..... I think it was then lol... 
so I'm very early ..... lucky me.


Exciting mail for me on Tuesday..... my Blog Book arrived and just look at the great photo on the cover....

love these naughty bunch of girls.


More progress on our ornies for the Christmas wreath.

2 pretty little parcels.


I won't take your spot Cathy as " Selfie Queen" honestly.

Now I know you all must be wondering why I  would put a photo up of this 
 but I bought a new dress today and its the only dress I own and I don't like the colour orange or crocheted clothes so its all a bit different for me. The little jacket I'm wearing was given to me by Sandi, now I'm sure she said that it belonged to her Grandma and Sandi didn't want it ....yep you guessed it ..... it fitted me, aren't I lucky..... its crocheted and very old.

I really like this dress obviously I guess otherwise I would have left it in the shop..... lol

Last block ...... Christmas project.


 Yahhhhhhh this is the last block for the Mystery Quilt by Libby Richardson...
Can't wait to get this finished..... what a great start this will make for 2015.....a huge finish.






Our Tuesday girls are making a terrific project for Christmas....
so far we are on track, its a wreath and we are making the ornies for it, 1 a week .... I think it will take us all year but we are having fun with it so that is good.

My day didn't really start this way !!!!!!


I started the day looking for a pattern..... as you do...... thinking I should check my magazines that maybe there might be something I could use but alas that wasn't to be.
While doing this I then decided to cull the mags as I'm having carpet laid in all bedrooms and sewing room in a week and I need to empty the rooms...... not looking forward to that at all.

I have realised that if these mags haven't been opened in years ( they were very dusty....... yes years then out they should go.



Now I don't feel like sewing which was the original plan for the day but it was a good job done.....
now to decide what to do with them all.

 Thursday saw the Tuesday girls out and about for the first time this year..... 
we had a lovely lunch at "The Nook" after going to ?..... well it shouldn't be too hard to guess where really...
craft shops of course.


Very naughty but oh so nice.


Saturday morning we took the lovely Corinne to the airport..... bit early for me 6am but she did the same for us last year so fairs fair really..... she was off to the Philippines,  Quezon City...... to help teach life skills to people so they are able to earn a living.... they are part of the  Hair Aid group..... there is a large Aussie group.....  


Naturally on the way home from the airport we stopped off for coffee and cake.....
we did share this so I wasn't tooooo naughty.


This is for Cathy..... practising taking selfies just for fun... hmmmmm not so good.


I'm trying to blog more this year just for my little stalker Desley..... she keeps giving me a hurry up if I'm slack.....

Am I a good girl or what ?
