Friday again

Today is Friday Night With Friends so I hope to spend time with my cyber friends, sewing or prepping or whatever I end up doing.

And - looking to the right I can see. . . its only 7 sleeps til I go on retreat. 
(well, truthfully I don't need to look at the counter - its firmly implanted in my head!!!  LOL)

 I have been sending daily emails to all the gang and found this image to include a few days ago:





that just about sums it up!

I have 3 projects all packed & sorted out my clothes (its going to be warm during the day)...
Eagerly anticipating.

Looking forward to everyones' company tonight.

Aussie Hero Quilts - July BOM

This month's BOM block was a map of Australia on a plain (ish) background.  I made a few back here, but last weekend I finished off another few - 11 in total - all on their way to Sydney.

Sunday Sewing - North Pole block

Today I sewed with a group I belong to - the Kianawah Quilters - we've been sewing on Sundays for quite a while now - today was a Christmas Sewing in July day... There was "a project" but in the spirit of trying to finish more than I start...I worked on a North Pole block.
This is the Elves' Bunkhouse - I hope they can sleep peacefully in this colourful house.

I did a few other things as well, but its time to link up to Val's blog so I'll just show this one now.

Tonight I am busy cutting - need to get a move on to get my projects ready for  . . . you know what!!! - just 12 sleeps. . .

A quick one

I am having a quick lunch break at work and thought I would post this little image...


BUT - I popped over here before I did that and found some amazing stuff.  I am sure most of my "readers" also read Maria's blog - but if you don't - just go there today - especially if you live in SEQld - what a sight this must be...
A hint??? - "The Knitted Kitchen".

FNSI - July

Last night was spent in the company of 56 other like minded souls all over the place - sewing away.  Had a few emails with a fellow hexie maker - we kept each other going - or was it the looming deadline??
I had a hexie row to finish for Sunday and as usual, I cant show you what I did, so I thought I'd show you what I to work with . .Lovely fabrics



We only have two more rows to make until we can do the "reveal".
Thanks Wendy for a being a charming hostess yet again - those apple turnovers sure looked good.
Pop over here if you want to have a fun time visiting.

PS - Do you see the "Days Until" counter over on the right - yep 3 weeks and I will be "on retreat" sewing away constantly - oh and maybe a bit of chatter, laughing, eating . . .Got a few thing to prep before but making progress on that.

FNWF - July

I joined in with 50 other stitchy friends on Friday night - I prepped some blocks for Aussie Hero Quilts and almost finished 3 of them.  This month for the BOM we are doing blocks with a map of Australia - with very clear instructions not to forget Tasmania!





If you'd like help out- go here for the pattern and the how and where info - or here to read about all work these ladies do for the military forces.  As they say - "It's not about the politics - its about the people".

Thanks to Cheryll for hosting and thanks for everyone's company - go here for the the list of all the cyber friends.

I'm off to a sewing day with friends - got some hexies to work on!

FNSI - Snow at the North Pole

It has finally snowed at the North Pole - so much so that the builders had to go home before they put the roofs on the Car & Truck/Doll Factory and the Takeaway Shop.

Another wonderful night of sewing along with 58 others - thanks everyone for your company - and urging me on when I could have just vegged out!!!
Pop over here to go and visit the others.

A big thanks to Wendy for hosting - providing prizes and recipes!!
