The Weekend

Had a lovely visit last week with Miss ChaCha (and her Mum and Dad) - she is such a delightful sweetheart and doing everything she should.  It's like she's been part of our lives forever.

Plans for the weekend kept changing, just like the weather - boiling hot and humid followed by big storms.  I'm sad it's the end of summer and I don't like the nip that was in the air this morning. 

Some old friends came to visit on Saturday morning - so lovely to see them and catch up.  Haven't seen them since Elizabeth and Matt's wedding.  I had time to sew over the weekend and worked on "Text Me" - started in May last year then came to a standstill in June.  It's a great quilt for chain-piecing designed by Me and My Sister.


Once all the block components were made, the blocks were quick and easy to put together.



I had 7 blocks finished last year; by Saturday evening there were 12 blocks


and I finished another 12 blocks yesterday.


12 blocks to go before my least favourite part - deciding which block goes where.  The feature fabrics are all Fig Tree fabrics from my stash - a variety of ranges and some are great favourites.

Last Thursday night Mum and I went to a charity screening of "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" - loved it!  The characters are wonderful and, once again, Maggie Smith steals the show.

A few social things happening this week, there won't be much sewing/stitching in the evenings.  I've been stitching "Little Chicken Feather" at night - a nice change from all the sewing.

Hello Lynda,

You are on a roll with these blocks. Great to hear that the movie was good, sometimes the second one isn't .Watching little ones is so enjoyable.
Enjoy your social events.

Happy days.
Bev.
