FNSI


For Friday night sew in ( FNSI ) i decided to stitch one of Michelle Ridgway's cute Alphabet letter's ,first off i decreased the size to 80% and traced it out.


I was so pleased i got it stitched while watching a couple of movies with hubby. Such a sweet design by Michelle,the pattern is called stitcher's alphabet.


Before i started stitching i got 4 bunny pouches cut out ready for quilting.


I also got out the fabric and pattern to make another fox for my other grandson,but that is as far as i got with these,i was getting tired.
A big thankyou to our lovely hostess Wendy for hosting FNSI and to see what the other ladies got up to go here.


I have made these bikkies a couple of times since last week ,lol,they are really so nice,i feel another batch being made on Sunday,lol,recipe is here and i promise you wont regret making these. They are called the best chocolate chip cookies ever and they sure are RECIPE here.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

I was so pleased ,yesterday i walked 5kms for the first time since i broke my ankle in 3 places 7 mths and 1 day ago,such a milestone for me and boy its amazing how well the body heals,i can still see my ankle with 2 bones sticking out,now to keep my walking up.


Thought it was about i got this project started and finished,it was a kit given to me a few years back.


Love using the big stapler to tack all the pieces down ,one face done.

Fun In Geelong

 Had a wonderful day Tuesday just gone our senior group hired a bus and we went to Geelong for the day ,we stopped off at Bannockburn for a cuppa and some morning tea.

 Then we went off to the wool museum and boy was there lots to see there.

 The day wasnt without shenanigans and lots of laughter.

 So much history here to read about.

 We also saw how they dyed the wool back in the early days.

 Love the little Bollards that they had in the gift shop and then we went and had lunch at the RSL club,lots of old war memorabilia to look at.

 These were on display to at the wool museum,very eerie feeling walking through this,lol.
And to top a lovely day off we went shopping in the plaza's in Geelong city center.
It was an awesome day with awesome company ,i am so looking forward to our next trip.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
