Busy FNSI..and a Fun Day

I got an early start on Friday afternoon making binding


for a project I had to make out of an ugly FQ for a Swap…


Pleased with the end result but fiddley to put together sew when I need a new pot mitt I think I will just buy one..


Next I needed to take up a new pair of my pants for tomorrow’s outing….


then added another row to  "Goodnight Irene"  which I’m sewing along with Terry and Friends

5 in a row

Today was our Patchwork Groups Friendship day and we had a wonderful time thanks to our fabulous host Geoff and hostess Alison.  As well as

Great company,



  Lots of delicious food,



“ LOL  most of these and others disappeared before I got a photo…”

wonderful views from the deck as we ate our lunch...


and lots of laughs playing games.  Sorry NO pics of this...  

Sew ladies I haven’t had a chance to visit the FNSI  folk  but will visit you tomorrow..  Big thank you to WENDY for getting us organised again this month…
