Been A While

I have been a slack Blogger
Have been keeping busy though
I finished Sam's dinosaur quilt though I just realised this is not the finished photo It has a black border Looks pretty good even if I say so myself

Early May we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary.

I was made a Life Member at T.O.W.N Club
Have battled my weight all my life and going to this local weight loss group has kept me on track I have had the weight off for nearly 12 years now Good to have the support of others
The lady with me in this photo started this group 48 years ago and has barely missed a meeting in that time She will be 90 in October and making plans for our 50th birthday

Had a load of woodchips delivered for the garden 
Pleased to say they are all spread now., by me and my wheel barrow

I admired my room mate at LGSs bag and I was very surprised and thrilled when she sent me one that she made for me
So kind of her and I have used it heaps Very handy bag
If you are still here thankyou for reading to the end
Hope I haven't bored you to much

April FNSI

OMG where is the time going?
Cannot believe it was the April sew in already
I managed a little bit of stitching
A bit wonky but at least I got to do some My finger kept getting in the way
Happy Easter to all my Blogging friends
Thanks for the comments from my last post 
My finger is slowly healing

Ouch

Not much sewing happening at the moment
I smashed my finger just over a week ago
Was helping Hubby shift some rocks in the garden and I lifted one that was to heavy for me and managed to jam my ring finger between two of them Aparently I degloved it
Two hours at the Medical centre having it stitched
I got the stitches out on Monday It still looks a mess but is healing nicely

Since I haven't got any sewing to show I will let you see my attempt at Easter decorating
Unfortunately my Comment notifacation has gone again and I cannot seem to get it back Will keep trying but if I don't reply to you then you will know why
I do love to get comments

March FNSI Zipper Crazy

Since my friend showed me how to put a zipper in I have gone a bit crazy
Last Night when I joined Wendy and friends for our monthly sew in I whipped up two bags
The first one is passable but my second is much better
Last weekend I had a wonderful time in Melbourne for the annual LGS weekend
I have not been able to make it for the last three years so it was wonderful to be part of it this year
We dressed up for
the Games night which had an Alice in Wonderland theme
Visited Lucello's and had loads of fun
More photos to share but will leave them for another post

ANother Month Done and Dusted

Friday night saw some of us join Cheryll for another night of stitching
I have started making a dinosaur quilt
Sat down with my Baileys and did some hand stitching
The lovely Fee over at Craft With Fee has been giving us a new project every Monday in a year of gifts
I made this card and box which holds a block of chocolate
Wish someone would gift me something like this lol
I am very happy the way it turned out
If I was smarter on the computer I would have turned the photo but I think you get the idea

Some little finishes

A card for my Mums 91st birthday which was yesterday

A friend gave me a lesson in zips
Have had a phobia about zips for years and always avoided anything with a zip
The top one is  not as wonky as it looks in the photo
Iam happy now Hopefully mastered my fear of zips

I made a card box from a pattern from Craft with Fee Great tutorial and easy to follow Now to get to making the card to go in it which will hold a block of chocolate
Started a new quilt
Did this for the Friday night sew a long with Wendy and friends but my internet has been unreliable and couldn't post
This little bloke took his first steps last weekend
Growing so darn fast
I have HOPEFULLY fixed my comment notification so please leave me a comment so I can see if it is working again
Why it keeps going away baffles me
Thanks guys

January FNSI

Sewing with friends is always fun
Thanks to the lovely Wendy for hosting
I achieved quite a bit but cannot show as SHHH it's a secret
So I will show you my rose instead
I was gifted this rose on the passing of my daughter
I can honestly say it never stops blooming

My neighbour has been doing Diamond painting. which I have been admiring, however I do not want to start another hobby (no room in my craft room for anything else)
Yesterday I found this owl going really cheap at a Garage sale
I just had to have him
He is all glittery and sparkly
I love my bling

Yesterday I made these gorgeous lavender sachets

And a couple of matching notebooks which will make a gift with a little more
Such fun to make and my craft room smells divine
Thanks again Fee for sharing and I look forward to your next inspirational make
You are very generous

Playful Penguins

I finished my penguin quilt

I had such fun designing this one and it seemed to just come together

My daughter chose fleecy for the backing I had never used it as a backing before, but it worked well
I think she will be very happy with it, when she receives it at Christmas
She had no idea what I was doing with the fabric


I was a little short so made a big label to cover the shortfall
Iam very happy with the way it turned out
I think I have once again fixed my comment notification so look forward to hearing from you so I can reply

November FNSI No 2

I was not well last night so not much sewing happened
I was baby sitting this little fellow who wasn't well and being a very sharing soul he kindly shared his bug with both Poppy and myself
So when I could keep myself out of the bathroom I did manage to make another penguin block
Vegemite

Meeting Pop's pet calf
Despite being unwell he was still a joy to have around He is such a happy boy
Thanks Wendy for once again hosting
