Weekend Fun Times

Squeezed a lot into this weekend and had a very enjoyable time with the added bonus of SUNSHINE! Yes ... after a couple of weeks of lovely rain but mostly cloudy, showery, forget about washing days, it was so lovely to have a beautiful sunshine weekend.

My morning started off by zooming up to the craftavan for a catchup with Chooky and friends. I began on my Churn Dash blocks the previous Monday at our patchwork group and continued with those for an hour or so.

Then once the grandsons arrived I had to head for the kitchen and prepare some smoko (chocolate brownies) for my hard working green team. The remainder of Saturday was busy busy.

After a sleepover, the boys and I headed in to the local show on Sunday for some family fun. Grandson J likes to put the pedal to the metal.

Grandson M and I settled for a more sedate ride, or so I thought. Those spinning teacups can catch you unawares. We also bumped our way around the dodgem car track later. Home time, the boys headed of with mum and dad and I made my weary way home for a rest.

Yesterday and today I managed a little more time in the craftavan and am happy to share my first 8 blocks for Chooky's Churn Dash SAL. Funny thing ... I went through my stash choosing fabrics I wasn't really liking ... and now I find them quite pretty.

Now onto those fabrics I had been gathering and cutting in my previous post.
