FNSI After a Wet Week

Wow, what a deluge!  Here on the Queeensland coast our parched lands have been once again flooded...seems we just keep bouncing from floods to drought and back to floods. We received 8 inches of beautiful rain which has filled the dams and tanks as well as boosted the brown dry grasses back to a healthy looking green. Areas closer to the coast received over 20 inches.


Nothing like good rain to bring forth new growth.



Of course that much water has run the creeks and rivers and we're once again locked in by flooded roads ... good thing I have several projects on the go to keep me busy. In fact I have managed to finish my October list ...




So as it is FNSI time with Wendy and friends, I have dug out a ball of cotton and knitting needles ...

I'm in desperate need of a new dishcloth for myself.
Happy Friday

FNWF



What's on my radar for some sewing with lovely friends tonight? Let me see ...


Still have a bit to do for September on my version of Ruth's Quilt. Then there's my October block for AHCC and a Calendar Bear for October to trace and stitch ... plenty to keep me busy. That still leaves the October stitcheries for R'sQ ... lots to choose from to make me happy.

September Extension

September Calendar Bear is only 2 days late.


I have also made a small start on my Black/White "Ruths Quilt" stitching ... once the first 3 are done I can move on with October plans.

We've finally been able to enjoy a wet weather day with showers all day ... just over 2 inches in the rain gauge.

Back to hitting the road for work again tomorrow with school starting back. My stitching projects are prepped ready for evening relaxation. Not much crafting has happened over the last fortnight with kids and grandsons keeping me busy and entertained ... time goes too fast.

Find some time for YOU this week.

FNSI and Sunday Stitching

Thanks to all the lovely friends who join in for a Friday night of sewing, I was able to finish the embroidery on my August block for A.H.C.C.


Then last night I traced the stitchery on the September block and enjoyed a Sunday Stitch In today ... officially caught up on this Stitch-a-long, yay!



Thank you for your lovely company ... always an enjoyable evening knowing friends all over are sewing/stitching too xx

FNSI and Some Catch Up


Continuing on with getting back into the swing of sewing, I'm joining in with Wendy and friends over HERE for FNSI.

DD is visiting and brought her knitting, I'll be stitching on my August block for A Holly Jolly Christmas. I finished the machine applique for both August and September last weekend.



Leave a draw open for a moment and someone is quick to move in.


August Calendar Bear is tucked away with her friends, if only I needed my umbrella more often.


So, what do you do when sewing time becomes harder to find and you're trying to play catch up on current projects and sew-a-longs? ... Join another group of course. I couldn't help myself and when my best friend had this book sitting on her shelf


I  started thinking of some black/white fat quarters I have been collecting and asked to join with the No Fuss Stitch-a-long HERE.


Not sure if its the best colourway to go with but I'm keen to have a play and see.

Off to mop the floors and see to tonights dinner so I can stitch guilt free.

Friday Night Result

A good thing I got a head start Friday, not as much time Friday night for stitching as I would have liked.  August Bear had to wait for today to find his head.



Busy busy in the kitchen this afternoon ... roast dinner and vanilla cupcakes for dessert. Happy Fathers' Day to all the dads and father figures xx


Grrrr...photos aren't loading!  Edit:  Sorted 👔👞🎁
