A FNSI Finish

Hot off the knitting needles this evening and ready for the kitchen sink ... a less than fine ending for a pretty cloth but someones got to do the dishes.

Loving this pattern given to me by a friend ... quick and simple enough. I had knitted half on Friday night and finished it this afternoon. Now for a blog hop to see what other friends have been creating.

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 Results

The night always goes too quickly when spending time with friends.

Some more stitching tonight and I hope to finish these off tomorrow, then I can move on with October tasks. Thank you Cheryll and friends xx

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.
