A Special Sunday

While tripping around Aussie and spending time in Queensland I was delighted to spend time with the Sunday Stitchers this week. Many of them are ladies I have been blogging with for a long time…


                                                  they all look very busy……


         Such a fun group…



It was sew nice to sit chat and do a little sewing while getting to know all these ladies better….


I was even able to show the "Ass Whip Cracker " Susan my completed center for .Nature's Journey" SAL along with Jeanette and Lynda…


The day went by far too quickly .      Love this group photo of us all.

As we have been on the road for over a month I am delighted to have completed one small finish for Augusts OPAM.. Thanks Peg and Kris for keeping me motivated each month. I enjoyed hand stitching along the way and it was great to machine stitch the boarders last FNSI with Wendy and friends...

Stitching Time

We are spending a few days in Toowoomba and it was fabulous to meet Fiona and Kris last Monday afternoon. Yesterday I needed to do a huge wash but ofcourse it rained (welcome to Sunny Qld, LOL).  Thankfully the caravan park has three big washing machines and two dryers. Sew in between loads I was able to sit and stitch some hexies. Now I can join Anthea for "Piece Yourself Together"

Wonderful Afternoon

Look who I was lucky enough to spend this afternoon with chatting while having coffee and scones...

The Fabulous Fiona picked me up from the caravan park to meet up with Lovely Kris at Quilters Angel.
I really enjoyed all the eye candy in the shop and of course a few things popped into my bag. 


Thank you Fiona and Kris for a fun few hours. XXX

FNSI in the "HUMPY"

Have joined Wendy  and the ladies for FNSI  in the Humpy. We are on the Sunshine Coast Qld but no sunshine, just rain. Good weather to do some sewing. I dug out my little machine from under my seat and had a great time sewing the borders and binding on a small wall hanging. Then I stitched one of Jenny's  " Vintage Kitchen " blocks.

Off to bed now were it's warm and cosy.
