A pre-bowl outing......


I needed to do a pre-bowl ( tenpin that is) as I will be on retreat soon and will miss a Wednesday bowling day.
The Tuesday girls love to join me for a fun time out......

We did finish quite early so what were we to do I ask ???????

check out the "Kingston Butter Factory" of course.......

there is a Museum there which was very interesting and a lovely craft shop full of beautiful handmade goodies..... 







Nor and Teresa....... 
Sandi was sick so she missed out today......



The sign said "no photos thank you".......
but I did get one outside......


Naturally lunch was required after 3 games of tenpin bowling.....

I forgot to get a photo of lunch which is very slack really.....
this big Lizard was hoping to get a few crumbs but alas we were very hungry so no luck for him.


Toodle-oooooo

A small finish.....


When Sandi went on her NZ holiday she gave me a cute souvenir tea towel ....

So I decided to make this little trio with it, this way I have it as a keepsake as well as being useful......


Inside the needlecase.......


This is a bit of secret sewing I was doing today.....


Short and sweet post today.....

Oooooops !!!!!


Yes my blogging has slipped again.....
so I'm here to get back on track.....
Firstly our plumbing issue has been taken care of, lots of mess and dust for a couple of weeks....
Liz and Clayton replacing the pavers for us, my back doesn't cope with all the bending needed to get these things done .......

Thanks heaps  to both of you.....



On the stitching front I have completed the September and October blocks.....
staying on track thank heavens.....



On the Friday 6th October we.... Sandi, Nor and me went to the 
Tamborine Christmas Craft Extravaganza......
We had a very pleasant fun day together.....
as you can see my basket has a few goodies in it.....


Great coffee and yum scone....


I won 4th prize in the raffle at Tamborine.....
a very odd  basket of craft goods .....
unfortunately some of the things had been used and the rest were of very poor quality.....
at least it gave me a giggle.....
actually it looks a lot better in the photo .....
I know it sounds nasty to complain about a prize but 
 it is a shame when someone donates their rubbish ...... 
at least it was for a good cause.... the Rural Bush Fire Brigade so that is good.

My 2 raffle wins  could only be explained as....
"the sublime to the ridiculous"



Then Sunday 8th October I went to the Brisbane Craft Show with Nor.....
gosh we had the best day, lots of great stalls to see ......
my goodies.....


We had fun with this 3D set ......


These are a few of my favourite quilts on display.....
Nor having a close look at this beautiful quilt.....






Coffee and cake of course......



Sunday 15th we enjoyed another day at the Sunday Stitchers.....

Not many photos of the day.....
but show and tell was great as usual.....

Alison.....





Well that is my big catch up post for today....

so it is "Toodles" for me again.....
