While the Cats are away......

we went out to play......
and we had a lovely fun day......
Sandi and Norreen are on a cruise to New Zealand......


Morning tea at Birchgrove Nursery......
Yummo.......


it has been raining  heavily but stopped for a short while so we took a leisurely walk around the garden.....
This could easily be Gav and me .......lol.....



Is that a sneaky cat hiding in the flower bed.....


We don't really have a plan for the rest of our day so we will just wing it.....

 glad we did ......
we found the most delighful book shop and a very charming lady serving us..... extremely helpful as well.
I'm not  much of a reader really but couldn't resist buying this book written by a local lady.... she has many books but this was her first apparently, looking forward to reading this one.....
note to self....do more reading and less games on phone....
"Under the Greenwood Tree" books and art is the name of this shop.


Next stop we went to an antique shop on "Gallery Walk" a wonderful street of shops, cafes and restaurants on Mt. Tamborine ......

A little purchase of course.....


Next door was a terrific shop, I can't remember the name but so many different and unusual things to buy there.....we will be going back there very soon I think.

Then lunch ......
A very yummie savoury bacon scone with chutney.....


Followed by a raw snickers pie....
we both left half of our treats as it was sooooo sweet......
It was quite small but still we couldn't finish.


Now to get wet hurrying to the car.....
we did have a super day.....
Thanks Teresa for your company and the giggles.....
Loved the day out.....
So it is Toodles once again.....

Tempted and gave in.....


I have been watching a few ladies making blocks with circle applique on them and thinking what a great way to use up a bit of stash fabric......
hmmmm thinking ... thinking.....
then I got a little push from the lovely Fiona  from here, I had also been watching Michelle from here making lovely blocks .... so I have decided to jump right in but rather than take the plunge by myself  I gave my friend  Jenny from here a very gentle nudge ( big push) to join me.
I won't be as good as the other girls who are needle turning their circles.... I'm machine blanket stitching them and doing 4 a month  which I think is a reasonable target.....

So with morning tea at the ready......


and circles to cut out....


I hope you like my circle template....lol...
a very pretty plate.....


Ta...daaaaa
I have 8 blocks finished.....
4 for January


4 for this month


I will change colours each month.....

Ooooops nearly forgot.....
I had happy mail this week....
Windchimes BOM from Patchwork with Busy Fingers.....
Oh my goodness not another project......
I must be raving mad......


Well lots to do.....
so Toodles.....

FNWF February


I enjoyed another night with the FNWF's hosted by Cheryll.....

once again it doesn't seem as though I achieved a lot but those hexies are fiddly little devils and take quite a bit of time to do.....all by hand I might add.....

Miss Matty's Parlour hexies....


One more tag for the No-Fuss- SAL
Ruth's Quilt



Well I'm off now to check out other blogs.....
go here to see more FNWF's posts.....
