A Perfect Afternoon

This afternoon had everything I needed for a lazy public holiday on this Australia Day. A cuppa, a snack and some lovely friends to zoom with. It is honestly just like sitting around together at a sewing day, stitching and chatting, catching up with good friends and making new friendships. Thank you Chooky for getting us together.

I was able to join in after lunch and managed a couple of small projects.  2 pair of sock protectors for Grandsons J and P, on J's request. 

Hubby had also requested alterations to 2 work shirts ... long sleeves to short sleeves.  Now for next time I need to find myself a Zoom Project that I can pick up where I left off. Also forgot to share a pic of the finished Murder Mystery Quilt top  ... 2020 Egypt.

Have to go ... the kettle has boiled and I need to share the computer.  It's back to work now for the next 10 weeks so I'll be grabbing sewing time where I can in the craftavan.

FNWF Knitted Up

 Not much to show for my Friday night due to pattern error. I'm in great need of some new knitted washclothes so decided Friday nights will be the perfect time to knit 1 purl 1. Except after several rows I came to the conclusion that a mistake at the start of the pattern was throwing the pattern out ... nothing for it but to pull it all out.

Bring on Saturday night afted a day in town and a new ball of wool ...

My knitting's a bit rusty but it's a start. Thanks Cheryll for kicking the year off with some Friday night fun.

Jumping Right In

 FNWF - Tonight!  Cheryll will once again be hosting this lovely Friday Night tradition of sewing, stitching etc alongside friends.

WOOFA - Cheryll is also helping to keep me and others on track with unfinished projects and new this year ... patterns, publications and more yet to be started. Click on the link to read more.

If you can't get enough of Christmas sewing, then jingle over to 1 Xmas Item A Month hosted by myself. Our small group of Elves sew each month to get ready with handmade projects to gift or decorate next Christmas.

Our year has begun with not 1 but 2 special birthday boys - Grandsons P (turned 4) and Grandson M (turned 1). P asked for a birthday at the beach but a hot windy day was not favourable for the ice cream birthday cake...luckily didn't worry the yummy taste.  While little M also received his long awaited quilt. 

As I had started this post this afternoon before the mail arrived, bath times, dinner time and now bed time for little people, I had better dig out what I thought I might be able to work on tonight with Cheryll and friends. 

A lovely evening to you all.
