Friday Night With Friends and Footy!

It was lovely sitting and stitching with everyone last night. I worked on my Quilty Stitches Sampler Along which has been quite neglected over the last couple of weeks. This is block 11 called the "Japanese x & + block”. Corey has also downloaded Block 12 so I have some catching up to do.
This morning Austin played football for the 
Bundoora Under 19's team! The four Yarrambat boys from the Under 17's played well and they had a great win. 
Mitchell also had a good win today.

I'm not too sure what's going on at our place. 
Austin at 15 playing Under 19's and last week Nelson filled in after his match and joined Austin in the Under 17's (and he's only 13)! What was very exciting about that match 
was Nelson kicked a goal! Nelson's stats now read 
Under 14 - 5 goals, Under 17 - 1 goal!

Your cross stitch sampler is looking great. I have been tempted to start on to frame and put in my sewing room. It was great stitching together for FNWF.

Nice work on your cross stitch blocks. Love those colours.

Your sampler is growing nicely. What is it with football at the moment. we have boys from younger age groups stepping up all this time. Great experience but I fear for them every time. Something to do with that "crunching" noise they make as they clash and crash into each other! Maybe I should stay home more often! lol hugs

Josie said...

Sounds like you are raising a couple of future sports stars! I don't know anything about AFL either but judging by that strapping on Austin's shoulder it's not for the feint hearted. Love your sampler cross stitch. Don't worry about keep up.. stitch at your own pace and you'll enjoy it all the more.
Hugs.....xx
