Off Once Again

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

 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...

For a Tree

I finally finished the tree skirt for DD#2. It will be on display in her home in December but she said she LoVes it & can't wait use it under her Xmas tree. That makes me so HaPPy...
The skirt has a 40 inch diameter (including a 2 inch "snow" edge).
It was machine appliqued & quilted...& made using various templates I had on hand.
Before it heads home tomorrow... all that is needed now is a label... so I better get onto it...

GeTTinG... THinGs... DoNe

Quite a few years ago I received 2 x  KiTs for making a BoYs pillowcase.
Well I thought this was a great month to make them and add them to the Xmas GiFT box for my GS.
The fabric for the case has different sports balls on it so it is quite fitting for the little man.
Hope the cases are loved & get well used...
To find out "How To Make" a pillowcase... just CLiCk HeRe.
Thanks Narelle... for encouraging all of us to MaKe a gift/item each month.
If you would like to see what other "elves" got up to this month... simply CLicK HeRe.
