Quilty Stitches Progress!

I thought I would give you an update on my Quilty Stitches Sampler A Long with Corey (Little Miss Shabby). 
Block 7 is the Lone Star of Paradise.
The seven blocks so far. I am just loving getting 
back into some cross-stitch.

I've been playing . . . . .

 . . . . with my Go Cutter. 
Over 160 tumblers cut out in no time!
All laid out ready to start sewing.

I am using the extra 17 fat quarters of 1930's I had
to buy back in 2010 to get the needed red fabric 
to finish my Double Wedding Ring quilt. 
You can read about them here, here and here.

Final Camping Post and FNSI

 Our final afternoon was spent relaxing.
Can you guess what I'm doing?
 Yes, you're right. Stitching!
I managed to get a bit of stitching done for the week.
 I stitched Block 6 of my Quilty Stitches Sampler A Long.
 
 
Finished stitching my snowman.
 Started on a new secret project.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what we got up to
on our holiday. 
You didn't get too bored, I hope!

 I joined Wendy and the girls for Friday Night Sew-In. As it was a holiday, I got an early start on my sewing.
Block 10 is put together which is good as
Block 11 is on it's way!

Then I almost finished Block 7 of my Quilty Stitches Sampler A Long with Corey while watching  the movie, Chocolat. I'm sure if there had been football on the tv,
I would have got it finished! LOL!

More Khancoban

As the NSW school holidays didn't start until this week, the caravan park was very quiet. As you can see, there is just our camper. There was another camp on the other side so we pretty much had the place to ourselves.
It rained most of Thursday so a quiet day was had inside. The boys stayed up in the cabin with our friends and I sat in our quiet camper and stitched!
 The obligatory selfie by Austin.
Molly did one too!
Didn't know she was so clever, did you!
Friday turned out a lovely day. We went to what is known as "The Boat Ramp" for a BBQ lunch.
 It was just so beautiful here.

More swimming.
Molly had a great time running around here.
Mitchell, Austin, Dale and Nelson.

Then it was back to the caravan park for a final few hours of relaxation before heading to the pub for a delicious dinner.
