What have I been up to

Saturday 14 August was Royce's 22nd birthday but as I was
away at retreat we went to the Greenwell Point Bowling Club Chinese for dinner on the Sunday night.

I was given this lovely box of flowers by my dear friend Esther after I had minor surgery. Aren't they pretty, purple & orange 2 of my fav colours.

LAst weekend I was asked by my friend Andrea if I would give her a refresher course on sewing. So I gave her some scrap and let her practice for a little while. Once she had some confidence, she made this little pin cushion.

One very happy sewer.

I have joined a flower hexy swap in the craft forum and this is my very first attempt at making one. This is for Lynette. I hope she likes it - I am quite proud of my first attempt.

A sneak preview of the apron I have made for Donna - opening day is next Wednesday so you can't see it all just yet. I loved this so much I have one sitting cut our ready to make up for me. I am also hoping to make a few for the SECET fund raiser Garden party on November.

My niece is having her new baby girls next Friday and these are the bunny rugs and burpers I made for her baby shower last Sunday.

This months framed hexy was for Linda. I have made Linda a few things this year and had a little of the fabric left over so I used it on her hexy.

Jeanette made this hexy for me this month. I haven't been able to master embroidery so am very happy to be given a hexy with such beautiful work.
