Quilty Stitches All Stitched!

 
Our Quilty Stitches Sampler Along has come to an end. 
It has been great getting back into cross stitch.
 
I have now finished Block 16, the Good Cheer block.
 
Here they all are. Now to give it a wash and a good press.

I had a square shabby frame that I thought I would use but it does nothing at all for the stitching, so I'll have to go looking for a different frame.

Thank you to Corey for this fun stitch a long.
I have really enjoyed stitching along with you. 
You can see some of the other girl's samplers here.

This Post Is Brought To You By The Letter "P"

Congratulations to Mitchell on getting 
his Probationary Licence.

Mitchell worked hard to change over to a manual car 
after doing over 200 hours in my auto. We never doubted you could get your manual licence, Mitchell. 

No school run for me today! Mitchell is doing it!

A TV Star or Two?

Do you remember back in May when Mitchell partnered Lucy for the Deb Presentation (see post here)?
At the time, Lucy's mum, Lisa, was taking part in a Channel 7 show called Bringing Sexy Back. Lisa's aim was to look great for Lucy's big night. She lost 40kg and had a makeover. She looked fabulous.
Last night Lisa's episode was on and finished with the big reveal (you can see the show here). Right near the end of the show, they go to the ball and show Lucy dancing with her mother. Can you see who is in the background?
 First off we see Mitchell dancing.
With me!
Mitchell was so excited to see himself on TV. 

Sorry the pictures are a bit blurry. 
I took photos of the computer screen!

What Quilt Block Are You?

I saw this fun quiz over at Sharon's (Vrooman's Quilts) blog. 
 The What Quilt Block Are You? quiz is by the 
 You answer some questions and it tells you which quilt block represents the real you.


 I took the quiz and am a Flying Geese block.

"If something's worth doing, it's worth doing right! 
You might seem shy at first, but once people get to know you they can't help but love you."

So what block are you? Head over here to find out. 
By the way, Sharon is a Log Cabin!

Football Presentation Day

 
It was Presentation Day yesterday. 
Nelson receiving his participation trophy.
 
Austin was awarded 
Most Determined Player in the Under 17's.
 
With his coach, Pete.
 
More trophies to add to the cabinet!

Congratulations to Austin and Nelson
on another great year of footy.

BUT WAIT. THERE'S MORE!

 
Noel was awarded Best Clubman 2014.
It was such a surprise. He had no idea. 

This was awarded for all the work Noel does behind the scenes over the years since we joined Yarrambat when Mitchell played Under 10's. He is always happy to help whenever needed. He sets up and packs up for functions and is on the Committee. He has been Game Day Manger, team manager, water boy, boundary umpire, goal umpire, umpire escort, helps at the BBQ's and 
where ever else he is needed.

I only found out half an hour before as I was leaving to take Nelson to basketball. They wanted me there so after a quick phone call, I was able to organise for him to go with a team mate. I raced back to Diamond Creek, dropped him off 
and got back to the club rooms.
 
 
A well deserved award!
Congratulations to Noel on this wonderful award.

As they say
"Footy doesn't get any better than at Yarrambat"
