A Gift

My "special gift" recipient in the Fat 1/4 Birthday Club was Jeanette... so I sent her a MiNi for her home.
Jeanette loves CaTs... so of course the MiNi had cats on it.
The parcel has arrived & been opened... so it's now safe for me to show it.
I tried to capture the colour of one "cat" correctly as well...

I'm back home and in the cubbyhole again.
Last night saw only a little sewing but I did do more on a Christmas gift.
As it's still a work in progress I will hold off pic's until the gift is finished.

How did you go last night at Friday Night with Friends. Accomplished what you wanted to I hope.

I hope you have all enjoyed joining with online friends throughout 2017
& I hope I will see you all again on
January 5th, 2018
Merry Christmas...

A total of 4...   this was a scheduled post

Thanks Peg & Kris for using your mathematical skills again.

Off Once Again

If you notice over the coming weeks that my blog post are almost non existent... it's because I'm away.

Yep another holiday...

 We left this morning...
 on a train...
 then a plane...
 to board a ship...

You will be pleased to know that I wasn't dressed like this...

Bathurst Bloggers Retreat

At our recent annual retreat to Bathurst NSW... 12 lovely ladies attended.
We all enjoyed each others company by sharing a few funny stories, & laugh or two... & perhaps a glass of wine. All meals were provided so there were NO meals to prepare or dishes to be done.
Now that's what I call a ReTReaT.
With permission... I share some pic's for all to enjoy...
All the gang...
Receiving our swap gifts...
To prove we did work. Some achieved a LoT & some like me achieved at little at least.
Fiona was on FiRe... so was Deb V... & Julie was on a roll... lots more but alas NO pic's to prove it...
And a special visit from Annie Downs... & Kate's gift to Annie...
                           THanKs GirLs... &... See you all next year... xox

A MaTcHinG SeT

I managed to sneak in a little playtime in the cubbyhole last night... making another TriAngle Pouch. 
This time I also made a matching flat zip pouch which I'll pair together & give them away as a gift.
I know I'm early this month for 1 Xmas Item a Month but I wanted to add my item.
I haven't missed a month this year... yippee...
Thanks Narelle... I wouldn't get half as much done if you weren't hosting this monthly group.
I also used stash & zips I had on hand... so another 2 items have been added to the list.

You can visit Narelle & the elves over                           HeRe...

The Day After

FNwF... is a show & see day... well the whole weekend is really...
That means... if you joined in FNwF & you show us what you worked on... we will all come by for a visit.
Sounds like a great idea to me...
I was lucky enough to sit & sew with 12 lovely ladies last night all working on various projects.
I finished 2 half circle skirts as stocking fillers for a little girl at Christmas. I hope she will like them.
I also finished some applique on a playquilt, so it has now become a flimsy... but more on that later.

I hope you all had FuN last night... & will join in next month for our last FNwF for 2017.
Perhaps you will need to finish off a last minute gift...
Anyways I would LoVe to have your company once again... so until then... KeeP on SeWinG

TiMe for FuN

with some oLd friends of many years now... & perhaps
this year some new-to-me ladies who will possibly become oLd friends too.
It's marvellous what a glass or two of WiNe can do... lol

It's the annual retreat at Bathurst NSW... & this year it's been organised by the lovely Deb from HeRe.
Don't ya just LoVe a road trip...

I stopped off at the Bathurst Hospital too... where I dropped of
15 Blankets of Love.
They were all willingly accepted & was told very much appreciated as well.
Of course you have to do a little shopping along the way don't you... just to boost the local economy... so of course I obliged by collecting a few bits n pieces.

Arrived at the accommodation & now I'm all set up for some serious sewing over the next few days.
Well that's what I tell myself anyways...
More from Friday Night with Friends later...
You KnoW it's ON ToNIGHT...
