Friday Night Sew-In

Nelson had a Friday night football game so I couldn't stitch along then. 
I joined the girls in the Northern Hemisphere on Saturday. Got myself 
set up in the morning and then went to Mitchell's football match. 
Rex found himself comfortable spot with a perfect view!
When I got home I started working on a new baby quilt. 
The other baby quilt is finished but I can't show you that yet.
 I am doing it quilt-as-you-go.
 Next I spent some time preparing the applique pieces for the first 
two blocks of Jenny's Phyllis May's Kitchen (this is block 2). 
Will have to wait until I get some more Vliesofix so I can prepare 
some more. I'm off on retreat in a couple of weeks and 
this is one the projects I plan to work on.
Noel, Austin, Nelson and Paris headed down to Sandy Point yesterday 
and are heading off on a hike at Wilson's Promontory today, 
along with some others from their Kokoda trip. 
In case you're wondering why Noel is holding his phone up, that's 
because they were phone chatting with me so I'm there too! 
With them still away, that means another day of sewing for me!

Thank you to Wendy for hosting us.
You can see what lovely things others stitched here.
Well, I'm off to hopefully finish putting the quilt together.

Friday Night With Friends

Friday I worked on an apron for my great niece, Thea. 
She is turning 3 and loves to cook with her mummy.
 All finished. A special apron to go with
the wooden mixer I bought for her.
 I even found a pink mini whisk to go with it!
So nice to finally have a finish.
Thank you to Chez for hosting us for FNWF. 
You can see what the others got up to here.
