Friday Night (and Saturday and Sunday) With Friends!

My Friday Night With Friends began at 9.30am when I picked up 
Melody to head to our yearly retreat with NOTYQ.
After visiting Gisborne, Kyneton and Ballarat, we arrived at Myrniong about 
4.30pm, got our beds sorted and settled down to stitch.
 Friday night I got the reindeers appliqued on.
So in between all the chatting, checking out what everyone else was working on and eating, this is as far as I got. The trees were appliqued and I started the stitchery part.
Thanks to Chez for hosting us. 
You can see what others got up to here.

OPAM For July

 I'm a bit late with my report. Where did the time go? 
Two little finishes for July.
Thanks to Peg and Kris for keeping us inspired.
It's Friday Night With Friends hosted by Chez tonight.
 I'll be having a whole weekend with friends as Melody and I are off on NOTYQ's annual retreat. I've prepared a new project to work on over the weekend. It will be interesting to see how much I actually get done between the shopping, eating and chatting!

Poor Molly!

About three or so weeks ago, Molly fell off the couch awkwardly. 
We took her to the emergency vet and was told "it was probably a torn ligament 
or something to do with her knee. See how she goes in a few days".
She didn't seem to be improving so we took her to our normal vet. 
Turned out she had dislocated her hip. The vets were amazed as they usually 
see this kind of injury in dogs that have been hit by a car.
She was operated on the following week. To keep her quiet for the first 
few days, Molly stayed in the play room. Rex kept an eye on her.
 Once Molly was back in the lounge, Rex kept her company. 
He was so good with her as he knew Molly wasn't well.
 Molly has been coming along nicely. Although last week when someone took her collar off for a little while and forgot to keep an eye on her, Molly managed to removed four stitches. So back to the vet but they weren't too concerned as she was healing nicely. After only five days, she was already resting her foot on the ground which the vet was very pleased to see. The stitches come out in the next couple of days and the collar off on the weekend. Bet Molly can't wait for that!

Friday Night Sew-In

 Friday night I did a little more of my "House Rules" stitchery.
Thank you to Wendy for being such a lovely hostess.
You can see what others got up to here.
Here's a little sneak peek of a new little project, a baby quilt.
Making it in brights which is so not me!

Friday Night With Friends

 It was lovely stitching along with everyone last night. I actually 
finished a second item in two days! A needle case.
 Here is the matching pin cushion I finished on Thursday.
There is just the bag to finish off now. I had planned to go back into the sewing room to work on it this afternoon but have decided to stay in the lounge room to do some stitching. It is such a cold Winter's day here and the room is so lovely and cosy with the fire going, I think it will be nicer sitting there, watching a movie and stitching.
Thank you to the lovely Chez for hosting us last night.
