Time to pick up my quilt.......


Picking up my quilt turned into a lovely road trip with Gavan....
A late breakfast at
 "The Cherry Tree" cafe.....


It was huge and soooo yummie....


I made a very quick start on the binding when we got home as well as more naughtiness.......


Julie Spencer from
 "Bush to Border Quilting"
in Warwick did the quilting.......



I'm so happy with the beautiful quilting that Julie did......

FNSI results


I joined the FNSI hosted by Wendy (here).....
I am doing the blanket stitching on these squares and I'm struggling to keep motivated on this project so these nights stitching with everyone in blogland really helps......


I also put the label on my "Miss Matty's Parlour" quilt.....


Once again it doesn't seem like much but I am pleased with what I did..   
I'm off to check out what the other girls got up to......

Brisbane craft show

Brisbane Craft show.....
A fun day with Sandi and Nor.....
Coffee and cake are a must as one needs sustenance for shopping...


We met Jenny who was visiting from Bundaberg, which was really great.....

While my Mum is away......


I was animal sitting (2 dogs and a cat) for Heather while she was away on a Jet Ski long weekend......
Which isn't really not very interesting except for the fact that I'm not a cat person.....
Missy was very lonely so I took my sewing into the grannie flat to keep her company,
am I really doing this ?
......lol......


At least I got a little sewing done.....


Well since Heather came home Missy seems to think I am her friend now so she sits outside my sewing room sleeping or watching me sew......


Funny really......
at least Heather thinks it is......


Another hexie flower.....


That's it.....toodles
