Wow What a scorcher of a day Got to over 40
Not a lover of the heat at the best of times
I Joined the girls in some stitching for our first FNWF for 2019
I spent the day under the air conditioner stitching
I am trying to use up some scraps
I did end up completing this stitchery
Nice to join in with Cheryll and friends once again
I looked after this little fellow for a couple of days over the New Year period
Such a delight and growing up way to fast
He is trying to put my thong on his foot They learn so quickly
He will be celebrating his first birthday on Jan 29th
When I joined Wendy and friends for another Friday night sewing I worked on some more coat hangers.
Then I made a block for the penguin quilt Iam working on for my daughter for Christmas.
I am making it up as I go along
Havent had a chance to visit to see what the rest of you got up to

Friday night is when I joined with Cheryll and friends I worked on coat hanger number six
Loving the variegated thread
I am spending a few days with my daughter and today she is taking me to Spotlight, something I don't get to do very often
Last night I was Cheryl's guest for her monthly sewing night. Iam working on using up some of my fabric stash
Probably turn into a really nice unique quilt
I have come down with the dreaded head cold and a massive headache. Bed early for me I think
The past few years I have taken part in the birthday fat quarter swap, hosted by the lovely Cheryl.
It was my birthday last Wednesday and I was happy to open my gifts My special gift this year came from our swap Mama herself. I received this lovely wall hanging.
We are also to include a small gift starting with the first letter of our name.
Cheryl sent me a Biro.... Ink and some Impressions thread.
From Anthea. I I needed a few more of these clips
Icecube tray and Indigo thread
Julie sent me a shopping bag.... Ideal alternative to a plastic bag and beautiful hand made card
From Sue an Indian embroidered bag
And from Jeanette a fridge magnet n the shape of an I
Thank you to all you lovely girls. I Loved all my gifts
I am still trying to sort out the my message reply thing.
Finally got a message from Gmail this morning so hopefully now I can reply to you again
My niece had a baby girl last week, so I have been making her a cot quilt.
Just have to add
Some borders and it is done
I have had the pleasure of looking after Sam this week. His Mum is doing an online course and had placement this week.
I am more than happy to help out.
He has been a good boy I just don't like the early start to my day.
Lynda loved her penguin cushion
Iam going down later and will get a photo of the back Did try to do it with the other post but couldn't get a decent photo with the Tablet. As I said "still learning"
Also I have to work out how to reply to your messages since that was changed too
Too old for all this learning
Any way basically you cut the front off a shirt.... I was lucky to find two really good quality black cotton shirts at the Op Shop.... leaving it buttoned up you use it as the opening for your cushion cover
Very neat and easy as I cannot do a zip to save myself
Not very good at explaining but will put a photo up later today hopefully
It was the first time I have tried this and will be doing it again
You can also leave the pocket on if you wanted and use it to store the remote
Hope this helps
Last weekend when my daughter came to visit she had a picture of a cushion that she wanted me to make for her.
So last night I made this for her. She is coming for lunch today so I hope she likes it. She wants another one with the penguin facing the other way. I used the shirt method to make the back. I found two matching black shirts in the Op shop. I will use this idea again
I am still learning how to use this Tablet. Taking forever to do this post
Thanks Cheryll for another enjoyable night sewing with friends
