A busy week

I can't believe a week has gone by since I have last posted. The past week has been busy with a few different things. Last Thursday we popped up to Sydney for a quick visit to Ma and Pa. It as very nice to see some of the family for dinner too on Thursday night. I had a bit of stitching to catch up on Ma's quilt. There were a few new great grandchildren and some new husbands to add to the quilt. It has Ma and Pa in the centre and then their children's names around them and so on.
 We came back on Saturday afternoon and then went out for a delightful dinner to celebrate Garrick's special birthday. You might recognise Garrick and Annemarie as we had a lovely time in France with them earlier this year.
 Then at work on Tuesday it was so lovely to see Judy's wonderful hexagon quilt. How amazing is this quilt! Judy cuts all the papers, tacks them and hand stitches every single hexagon.

 I have been busy stitching some secret things for the Stitching on the Lake days in November. Only a few weeks to go till the first of our days. There are still some places left on the 23 November if you are interested in having a lovely day of stitching, delicious food and 6 special Christmas projects! Fiona has put a few pictures of our days earlier this year. Email me or Fiona if you are would like to hear about the stitching day.
I have done a little more stitching on these lovely little bags by Anni Downs. Here are 2 that are finished.
 And three more that are ready to be made up.

 The other job that is being done at the moment is some pattern and kit making for the retreat at Galong in just a few weeks. Looking forward to that weekend very much.
 These little fellows have been a delight over the past week as well!

 Here is Sammy admiring some canvas work!
