Addition to our family

Hello my friends.
Yesterday our youngest daughter brought home 
our new addition to the family.
Tillie is still taking this on board!!

She`s usually laid back like this. :)

Still taking in the new member.

His name is:

Elizabeth from Paisley`s Post and I  have decided to do this
Drawn Thread pattern `Random Thought`s` as a SAL 
together.  Once I found mine. :)
Hope I won`t be too far behind.
Elizabeth has started her`s as well.

This is how much I had already stitched.
I think I will stitch this as my Friday night stitching till 
we go away and return to it once home again.
Happy Stitching,

I have been getting this years

Last block

Hello my friends.
We have been busy looking after our youngest grandson.
He is now 9 months old.
When we took him home the other day I picked up 
the last block of my $25 quilt.

I also paid for finishing layout.
Next week when we take him home,
 I will go to sort my choice of fabric`s from the
fabric put aside for quilt.

Progress on `Lady`s Sampler`.
Well must get on as we have Ezekiel again this weekend
and I am sorting through my kitted up projects. :)
Happy Stitching,

Missed a day

Hello my friends,
I did sew yesterday but no time to post for day two of 
Chookyblues birthday weekend. :)
Saturday night before midnight I stared 
`Lady Sampler`.
That was after our evening out.
Plus I stocked the fire up,nice and cosy.

The Volunteer `s Fire Brigade 2017 Honours.
They were a few year`s behind so hubby received
Three silver bars to attach to his medal,
plus a framed certificate for Level 2 
Urban fire and recuse operations. 

Today this is my progress on 
`Lady`s Sampler`.
I am using suggested threads and linen 40 count.

Part of Saturday and most of Sunday during the day
I cut out and put together 
 2016  $25 quilt borders one and two. 
The third and last border I am working out joining the pattern.
Once that`s done I will attach ready for quilting. :)

Once wash is out as today is a lovely sunny winters day.
There was a frost this morning.
Happy Stitching,
