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,
