FnwFs at SAHR......

My FnwFs started off a fabulous weekend for me as our Patch club was having one of our SAHRs as well as my DD coming up from the big smoke to join I sewed along with all my favorite sewing friends...
After unloading the car and chatting to all I set up the machine and worked on the Aussie Hero blocks for this month

when my DD arrived, we sat and talked till it was time for us to set up for dinner. Our weekend is fully catered and there is a roster for us to have turns at setting the table and loading the dishwasher. ours was for Friday night.

DD and I went home about 9pm and when we returned Saturday morning it was to find these sprinkled all over my table and machine. Later there was even a cake with candles and the girls all sang "Happy Birthday" It was like being a kid again and I loved it.

I did finally get those blocks made 

then in between morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and socialising I managed to work on my longgggggg term project the Wedding Ring Quilt.

both DD and I were ready for home and bed by 8.30pm... we returned Sunday morning in time for morning tea ( a delicious sponge cake with cream) and afterwards I sat and stitched the EPP onto my La Passacaglia project,

while DD continued to work on her "BLUE BOHO" heart ....

She is very happy with the progress she made over the weekend as the flimsy nearly done.

It was a full fun filled weekend , big thank you to all....

I'm sorry to the lovely ladies who left a comment on my last post and I haven't  replied , blogger isn't sending some comments through to my emails.. Hope it works this time...

Must away and put the vegies on for our roast....
