Earlier in the day I made two blocks for Aussie Heros  sew I could pop them in the post when I dropped hubby at RSL.

Finally

I'm off for a drive to Mingenew ( 54 kms away) to deliver "On Ringo Lake" to the longarm quilter.


It's a lovely Spring sunny day and on the way there are many farms with fields of golden canola and on the verges there'll be gorgeous yellow, pink and white wildflowers.....

May even pop into the little bakery thats makes the best coffee and then to choose something  delicious to go with it.......😋


Must away and get ready,

Happy Stitching,

I had a marathon weekend

of quilting and sewing binding...










\








and I am delighted to have "Soul Searching " COMPLETELY DONE ........


Took lots of photos but just can't seam to get the perfect colours...  Too dark..


with the photo bomber Lacy  (too light)















and on my washing line....




Still not the true colours but you get the idea.....

Now to get on with some of my WIP before playing with these that arrived in the post......

FnwFs

Yesterday I  joined the lovely Cheryll and friends for FnwFs and I was pleased to have been organised to get a good start on quilting this huge quilt....


 I stippled all the coloured blocks and am doing straight lines ( well they are kinda straight ) in the grey....I am over halfway and it would be great to get the quilting done over the weekend.... 😃
There are lots of threads to sew away and then the binding to make and put on.
May join all the coloured fabrics from the blocks and do a scrappy binding ???? What do you think ??












Will enjoy popping over to visit HERE to see what others did for FnwFs... Thank you  Cheryll  🌹

Well must away and get brekky .......

Happy Stitching

Sign up for FnwFs and catching up.....

As it's the first Friday of the month tomorrow it's time to join the lovely  Cheryll HERE for another fun night of sewing for FnwFs.......

While I was in the big smoke I picked up a couple of backings at only $10 a mtr. The grey one was perfect for "Soul Searching"




















I went to Patch this week to sandwich and pin it ready to quilt on FnwFs.



I have finally unpacked the box of projects I took to retreat and realised I hadn't shown you these that  I had worked on....















Two " An Angels Story" blocks....




and also a couple of  "Foxes "


Must away now and get the "Cave" organised to quilt as "Soul Searching " is huge...

Happy Stitching
