Special Visitors and SnwFs August 2019

I didn't do any sewing for FnwFs with Cheryll and ladies as we had some very special visitors...
It was Jo from ButterZ , ( She's been mine blogging friend for many years ) her hubby Tony and brother Graham.... They live on the other side of Aussie so it was sooooooooooo great to meet them...
We enjoyed a lovely evening chatting and getting to know each other sew no stitching got done....

 In the morning after breakfast it was time for our visitors to hit the road again on their way to Darwin....
It was wonderful to spend time with Jo as well as her hubby and brother....

                                          Bye my Friends and safe travels.. XXX

Jo gave me a magic bag and a pattern sew I can make one myself...

When opened it has a little pocket in the left hand corner.

Then you tuck in the fabric pull the zipper all the way round and you have a different shaped bag with a square bottom.. Magic.....

Thank you Jo...
 Last Thursday I had started making some place mats  from a Jelly Roll so this afternoon I decided to go into the Cave and join in with my friends from the Northern Hemisphere for their FnwFs ... 

I managed to get 5 completely finished

Have to sew the binding for another 3 but that will be another day...

Thank you Cheryll for organising our monthly sewing night.
You can pop over HERE to see what others have worked on....

Must away now as it's time to get ready for bed.....

Happy Stitching..

Hugs  Maria 😊

I have a stack of place mats that need to be quilted. Maybe in the next day or two? I was starting on them but my machine was being obstinate, so I just quit. Maybe it's rested up now and will cooperate.
