Hot Rod Run, Sewing Catch-up.

Not sure where the last 10 days have gone since my previous post. I have had some family things happening so that can account for a few days. Also joined my hubby on the annual Goín' Country hot rod run on Saturday to Fernvale about an hour away. It was lovely to actually do something together as it seems ages since we have done this. It's always a great day as we meet up at Queens Park in Ipswich then journey up to our destination together. Left hubby to do the photo taking so not many photos to show.
They always have damper with butter and golden syrup on arrival, followed by a spit roast of pork and beef with all the trimmings which was delicious as usual.

A cool ride home but we came well prepared with woolly caps, scarves and a fleecy blanket.  

Have been working slowly on my Xmas Swap gifts as well as my Gossip in the Garden blocks. So far behind here, I feel like I will never catch up. Have nearly finished my circle row for the Row Along quilt I am doing with 6 other ladies from my Sunday Stitcher's group which needs to be ready by next Sunday so that is good.
Can't show any photos of most of the Xmas things or the circle row I am working on, so here are a few photos of the prep for my Gossip blocks.

Template cutting for the border stars, so many pieces. Still have to cut out the background templates.

Trying to plan ahead and cutting some hexies while I am on a roll with the other cutting out.
Well must go and get back into the sewing room. Until next time.... Happy Stitching......

  9. Your lunch sounds yummy, and such cute cars....I suppose your hubby would not like someone referring to these cars as 'cute', maybe I should have called them - 'handsome'...lol
    Your Gossip is looking great...
