FNSI for Sept......

This Friday will be the third Friday of the month sew time to pop over to the lovely Wendy and sign up for FNSI..... I always enjoy my time crafting with Wendy  and visiting others to see what they've been working on..

I'll be busy trying to finish quilting my Land Down Under Quilt .  I scorched the bottom border when I decided I needed to press it before quilting the Flying Geese...











Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!! not happy Jan as I had to unpick it and then cut and sew on the new border.......





All done now and ready to get on with the quilting....

What will you be working on over the weekend ??????

Must away now and do some boring food shopping...

FnwFs and Journey Home

It was lovely to sit and stitch along with the ladies for FnwFs Friday evening..  As I still have two projects to finish for our Quilt Hanging it was great to do some work on both as  I have my two machines set up..

The little Janome for straight stitching to attach the second flying geese border to my "Land Down Under"


one more small border and then ready to sandwich..

The Bernina for quilting,

I did a lot of ditching on My Small World before going to bed....

Don;t forget to pop over HERE to see what the ladies  have done....
Thank you Cheryll for putting up the linky even though in are across the other side of the world..

Now onto the rest of our Journey....

After leaving Bunbury we went to Busselton to ride the train along the lonnnnggggggggest jetty...
Some thing that was on my bucket list...



Can you see the end of the Jetty way in the distance?




















then onto Nannup overnight , the little main street was lined with a beautiful display of Tulips .

Lacy doesn't like her photo taken...

We strolled up and down the street and had a coffee here...
In the morning we packed up after brekkie and on the road again stopping overnight in Brookton before the rest of the journey home through driving rain.. Only wish it would go over to the other side of Aussie too!



On our trip we did see lots of beautiful scenery

Forests of tall trees 

Fields of Canola and Wheat


and ofcourse Sheep as far as the eye can see..


I also managed to sew these

So even though our holiday was cut short we did see a lot and enjoyed our time away...

Must away now as the washing machine is beeping....

Happy stitching 😊

Quick Trip Part 1 and Sign up for FnwFs..

After my retreat hubby and I decided to pack up the van and do a trip down the South of our State...
We got as far as Bunbury and had two sunny days before the rough weather come in... It was windy,  poured rain and freezing.. Our dear little old van ( she's a 1977 Model )  sprung a few leaks so we decided to head home.
We were pleased to have visited a few sights , first the Dolphin Discovery Centre,






















Love their Lighthouse...
and visited this huge lookout, thousands of steps....















and drove to "Gnomesville" ... Many years ago someone put a Gnome there and over the years folk from all over have added to it...There are Gnomes as far as you can see..





















I took PUD a gnome I painted many years ago to join all the others...



In the evenings I glued some hexies         













Which I stitched in the car while navigating for hubby..



Thats it for now and don't forget that it's to sign up for FnwFs.. Even though Cheryll is away she still kindly puts up her linky for us to enjoy our FnwFs  so don't forget to pop over HERE to sign up..

Must away to get ready for Building Better Bones exercise class. 😒

Happy Stitching
