Some Catching up

 Can't believe it's three weeks since The Patchwork Clubs 25th birthday and I hadn't posted our special cake,

and in this photo in the back row are three original members and the two in the forefront are out Youngest ladies, Edith left 80?? and Val 93.. Both ladies still do beautiful work...




While I was busy sewing "Carnival" the machine was making a funny noise. I keep sewing instead of stopping to check why ??  There was a big mess underneath so some unpicking was done....

Then when I got home and lifted my box of projects etc out of the car the lid slipped off...



Not the best end to my day !!!!


I've slowly worked on painting the eaves and they are nearly done.

In the sewing department I made and posted some Aussie Hero Blocks .. 

Also finished putting "Carnival" together , sewed around top and bottom to hold all the seams 



got backing and wadding cut for it as well as for "Quilt by Numbers" that you can see HERE.

Ready to take to the quilters in Mingnew this morning...

As it's a 106 kms round trip my friend Jean joined me as there's a Bakery there that makes delicious cakes....




Liked the sign above a bowl for the dogs water...

Must away now and organise some dinner....

Happy Stitching and stay safe...

WOOFA sewing for FnwFs May 2021

 Last night I joined the lovely Cheryll and friends for FnwFs . It's always fun to sew along with everyone virtually from all over the world and this week I decided to work on my WOOFA Challenge which is also organised by Cheryll ....

It's a quilt from this years calendar called "Carnival"  ( can see pic in previous post HERE )  I managed to get a few more rows sewn after I had made a start at our Patch Group's 25th Birthday last Saturday... 

Have two more rows to go and then sashings.......Another stash buster .....





Wishing All the Mum's a very Happy Mother's Day tomorrow.....





Must away and bring in the washing....

Happy stitching and stay safe...

Catching up and sign up for FnwFs...

 For the past two weeks Iv'e been painting the eves but I had a bit of drama before I got going ....after filling a small bucket ready to start painting the handle broke when I picked it up....... SLAT !!!!!!

and before I had a chance to start cleaning up someone trotted through it...


so I had to chase and catch Lacy , clean her feet and then lock her inside while I cleaned it all up and start again getting organised.....










It was good to have my sewing to do and our Patch group's birthday party to attend ( blog photos next post ) in between painting.

Only a bit more and it's done...





Don't forget to pop over to Cheryll's to sign up for FnwFs . 
Must away to watch " Handmaidens Tale"

Happy stitching and stay safe....

Hugs Maria ❤

Finish for OPAM and WOOFA.... for April 2021

 So another month has slipped by and thankfully I have two lovely ladies, Kris for OPAM and Cheryll for the WOOFA Challenge who keep me encouraged to work on my projects and have at least one finish for the month. Thank you both ...






I only have one finish this month, the second Paper Dolls by Toni form Red Boot Company 

And I actually even made labels for both quilts....

I did put the binding on Anderson's Farm and quilted the Hounds for WOOFA . Both are packed ready to take to our Patchwork Groups 25th birthday sewing day on Saturday.....Binding on The Hound and buttons on Anderson's Farm...

 


and of course can't go to a sewing day and not start a new project." Carnival" a free pattern from this years quilt  calendar.....
I've cut all the coloured blocks and hope to have all sashing ready so I can get on and sew, I'll make it May's WOOFA Challenge









Must away as it's time for bed.

Stay safe and well.

Hugs Maria ❤

Tonight I joined Wendy for FNSI and first up I sewed on a top and bottom border of "The Hounds" which I had appliqued during the week. ...
then I sewed the binding on "Anderson's Farm "





and lastly I prepared the binding for "Paper Dolls 2" which I also quilted this week.....

Oh and I also made four Chop Sticks blocks for Aussie Hero's ....




Must away and have some shut eye....

Keep safe and my thoughts are with the folk who lost so much in the cyclone.

FnwFs for April 2021

It was lovely to join in again for FnwFs with Cheryll even though she's away in their caravan....So after tracing all The Hounds from Toni's Happy Quilts book  on Friday night I found the fabrics I needed, ironed the pattern onto the blocks 







and started sewing..

I completed this block yesterday but I didn't get round to posting FnwFs till now...

We are having weird hot humid weather and its eerie and windy as there are not one , not two but three different cyclones looming of our coast which are meant to hit later today so to keep busy  I've started making some Chop Stick blocks for Aussie Hero's and doing my RSC blocks as leader and endders....

Must post this now as we MAY lose power , 

Happy stitching and stay safe,

Hugs  Maria  ❤
