I shouldn't but I did....

 Chooky has started a Churn Dash SAL for bloggers.....

It wasn't hard to get caught up in the excitement of a SAL while zooming with all the lovely ladies at the Chookshed birthday party....

My finished project will be for charity, I don't need an excuse to start something new but it makes me feel better if it's for a good reason.....

Of course I dragged/coerced more girls to join in..... 

If you would like to join the fun then pop over to Chooky's  blog here for all the details...

These are the fabrics I've chosen.....


I have made a start with these 2 blocks....


Good luck....

AQC show Brisbane

 We had a great day at the AQC show in Brisbane meeting up with some of the Sunday Stitchers and a couple of stitching friends.....

We started our day with morning tea of course.....

A custard pastry and hot chocolate......


Lots of great stalls to tempt us.....
I was a very good girl and only bought 1 thing.....
Flannel for a lap quilt for our families new Mum Hollie.....



We spent quite a while looking at the wonderful quilt show.....














Unfortunately I didn't think to get a photo of  the girls at lunch.....
We were very busy checking out all the girls shopping .....
A great day.....

Happy 70th Birthday

 The Sunday Stitchers group helped Marilyn celebrate her big "0" birthday with a great outing for lunch....

Birthday girl.....


Now for the photo overload.....

Marilyn having fun with her party bag.....




It was very odd that all of us except one wore pink clothing ..... there wasn't a dress code it just happened.....

De hid behind the chair to hide her orange scarf.....

Maria also had her birthday and Marilyn was gifting to her on behalf of the group....



My yummu lunch.....


"Vend" was the venue and what a great place it is, with the Cafe is a lot of wonderful stalls so of course there was a bit of spending by some of the girls....

Happy Birthday Marilyn.....

We all had a fun time with you.....

FNWF

 It was so good to join Cheryll and other girls for a fun night of stitching.....

I was very happy to finish sewing the binding on this charity quilt and later after a well deserved cuppa (at least I think so) I moved on to my knitting, only the bands to go, I will get it finished just in time for the cooler weather.....



I'm struggling with these bamboo needles but my old Tortoise shell needles are now broken.....
mind you they are probably a good 40 to 50 years old by now.....
Not sure how much knitting I will get done in the future as my hands really don't like the knitting  motion and it is very awkward wearing a brace but I would like to make another cardigan so I'll see how I go....
fingers crossed.....



I also managed to get a little prep work done for another quilt.....
more on that later.....


Well I'm off now to check on the nights progress for other stitchers....

if you go here you to might see some great projects....
