Friday Sewing, Natures Journey, 1 Xmas Item a Month, Cooly Rocks.......


Friday night I joined other like minded ladies in a bit of sewing. Thank you to Cheryll from Gone Stitchin for again hosting this fun night. I managed to get a few things done which included some prep work for my June blocks for Natures Journey.
I cut some blocks for the backgrounds and traced out the shapes for the blanket stitch applique to go on them. Just need to get started on the blanket stitch circles and squares first.

Then I worked on a couple of blocks from my C is Christmas table runner by Michelle Ridgway. These blocks are for my May finish for 1 Xmas Item a Month hosted by Narelle from Pins and Whiskers blog. I know, I know I'm a bit late. Thanks Narelle.

Finally, yesterday we made a quick trip down to Coolangatta for Cooly Rocks, a hot rod and rock'n'roll festival held each year. It was quite windy and very cold early on but that didn't stop a big crowd from turning up. We looked at all the cars, then watched the parade and before we came home checked out the stalls. I was very good this year and didn't buy anything.



We had a lovely day but were happy to get home and see what this girl had got up to.
Only a couple of holes dug and an empty dish that needed refilling. Well that wasn't too bad as usually, she destroys a toy or two. Any suggestions for toys that are indestructible?
Well must go, be back soon..........Happy stitching till then.......

  13. Oh a dog that destroys. Yep, I have one too. I found at a dog show a brand called Zany - my doggie didn't destroy that. I've also had good luck with the squeak animals with no stuffing. Plenty of rawhide bones as doggies NEED to chew. I love that Nature's Journey.

  15. You had a great night of getting things done, your stitcheries are lovely. The hot rod show looked interesting...love a hot rod!!! :-) Have you tried a kong with your dog....they are tough rubber I think and have holes in them for putting treats like dog chews and cheese, takes them a while to get the goodies out and keeps them entertained...might be worth a try.

  16. Loved the photos from the classic car show. The big one in our area was a couple of weekends ago and it was such fun to see them all and even get a chance to talk to some of the owners.

    Your little redwork Christmas embroideries are so sweet. I love redwork.

    I've been enjoying having a bit of a browse through some of your posts and I just thought I'd mention that I host a weekly Stitchery Link Party for all things hand embroidered and I'd love to have you come link up this post. http://www.supermomnocape.com/2015/06/15/vintage-embroidery-monday-stitchery-link-party-10/

    I do hope you come join in the fun!
