Tuffet Time

Back again with some more finished items that I hadn't shared before.  I purchased a Tuffet kit a while back, chose fabrics, changed my mind on the fabrics, and ended up make two covers. So then I've been sourcing all the extra bits to make the 2nd tuffet.  This was the first completed with my 2nd choice of fabrics, goes better in my lounge.

This 3D card was a fun make and yes, I wrote a message on the note in the bottle.

Here is another section of our Exhibition. I had forgotten to take photos of the entryway adorned in a Christmas theme.

Last but not least, this is the 2nd tuffet completed just today, with my first choice of fabrics. This one will go lovely in Mum's lounge....surprise mum!

 A quiet day today with no power for almost 12 hours, luckily back on in time to cook dinner.

This, That and Everything Else

Sigh ... where do I start.  Had a lovely time today, zooming with the Chookshed Stitchers. When asked what I had been up to my replay was "taking a long time to achieve very little".  Honestly, where does the time go?

Once a month I like to attend a card making afternoon, that's when the rains don't arrive on that one day and I get stuck at home.  I did make it in August and just realised I don't have a photo of that card.  The sweet gnomes are from July that I didn't get to but the lovely lady kept a kit for me.  The flower pot were a previous afternoon.

Once again I didn't get round to posting my August 'Churn Dash' blocks so here they are.

And for something different, here are September's blocks and we're only a 1/3 of the way through the month.

Last Tuesday I got to go and mind this little Picaso. We also did a big tidy up in the sandpit, baked a chocolate cake for daddy's (my son) birthday and did the school bus run for big brother.

Our little Patchwork Group of  8 along with local artists, are currently having an exhibition in the local Art Gallery. These are some of the girls quilts ... my flimsies are the 2 folded over coat hangers and the 2 folded over a towel rack. The birdhouse wall hangings were our Christmas gifts to each other in 2020.

So ... tomorrow I'll take a pick of the card I missed and my first tuffet and what I was working on today/tonight.  Do we ever catch up?
