Out and About.

I was out and about this weekend but did get some sewing done too.

On Saturday our Red Hatters group, the Dongara Dizzy Dames, went out for lunch.

Sorry ,not a good photo.
We had a great afternoon chatting and having a lot of laughs. Joyce, third from left, did not have her hat so popped her handbag on her head. She is such a great lady and always fun of cheer.

  Saturday night I worked on my " Fish Quilt". Another of my projects from my UFO boxes.

  Sunday morning some of our swimming group met here for breakfast.
  It is nice to catch up during the winter months.

Then in the afternoon I returned for coffee and cake .

After tea I went into the sewing room and managed to make these for the  Early Bird Christmas Crafting and also some finishes for the OPAM Challenge.

Potholders with heart quilting and cute red heart buttons.
Little IPod/Camera Pouches.

A tutorial I found on  Thimbelina's blog.
