 This month I made some good progress on the quilt for my daughter.  Long ago she chose the pattern and fabric colours and I'm determined to have at least the top finished this year.  I had to alter the pattern to make it larger for her king bed so this means re-calculating border lengths etc.

Visit HERE with Cheryll to see what the other WOOFA girls have been up to this month.

FNSI With A Saturday Zoom

What started off on Friday night in lovely company, grew and grew yesterday while zooming with more lovely company.

Thank you Wendy for hosting ... only a couple of rows Friday night as I was feeling exhausted after another hectic week at work. We seem to be running from one task to the next these days with little time to catch our breath.

I really needed a rest day Saturday ... no better way than just sitting, chatting and enjoying great company. So as soon as I could I joined in with Chooky and blogging friends in a Zoom. It really is just like being at my local patchwork group of gals ... sharing, inspiring, light banter and good friendship. Big Big Thank You xx

And I made some good progress on my crochet rug.  Using up wool kits from BHG one hook at a time.

FNSI and Finishes

 This is my little corner of the lounge room at present ... I finished the hand stitching on the last little fabric pouch, then moved onto some knitting. It's a bit hard to photograph on the round needles but it is growing ... this will be one half.

Here is a photoshoot this morning of the 4 pouches in action ... lighting indoors isn't great so I went outdoors in the lovely sunshine as well.

Thank you Wendy for bringing us together. The wind is howling outside so I'm off to the craftavan where it's snug and warm for some EPP.

Don't you just LOVE the sound of rain on the roof?  ... it's pitter pattering as I type ... a lovely Friday night for some knit or crochet with friends.

FNWF and A Sewing Weekend

Crochet won the day, or night, and a few more rows added to my rug while keeping my knees warm. It's always nicer knowing that friends are crafting away at the same time ... thank you Cheryll for hosting us.

Saturday dawned cold and wet so I ZOOMED out to my craftavan to catch up with friends from all over for some chatting, sewing and sharing ... thank you ladies.

I managed to complete 7 neck scarves and also a couple more rows to the crochet rug.

Sunday I made up the June block for MMQ and now I'm planning on 4 fabric hold-alls ... one for each gorgeous grandson. 

After some lovely rain it was nice to have the sun out today and get all the washing done, dried, folded and put away. My weekend is a wrap.

 I'm looking forward to some knitting or crochet tonight and being in good company with everyone in blogland ...

It's not to late to sign up ... just visit Cheryll.

June Wrap

End of another month and a financial year...gosh!  A little bit of WOOFA progress and 1XMAS but sadly no OPAM. This is my crochet rug growing nicely.

Looks like we're in for a wet few days so fingers crossed for some serious sewing. Thanks Cheryll.
