….But before I get into that….here’s what I’ve been up to……
I bought myself a new printer….well….technically it’s called a ‘multi-function centre’ (sounds impressive doesn’t it???)
I decided I really need a nice big A3 one so I can print out and scan my patterns from now on in one decent go, rather than making you print two dodgy pages and match them up! You see, my old faithful died, the printhead was damaged and you know what it’s like, everything these days is ‘disposable’ so its much cheaper to go and buy new rather than try and get it fixed so, what a great opportunity to buy one that will be much more user-friendly!!!!!!
That was last Thursday….took me till late Thursday night to set up space for it (which also gave me an ‘excuse’ to tidy up the office to accommodate her!!) and print out the necessary documents for a little ‘procedure’ I had done on Friday. I have cysts on my thyroid and the doc has decided they’re not really a problem but something is causing me discomfort so off for a camera down the throat to check……..seems I have a ‘tiny’ hiatus hernia….don’t know exactly what that means but I guess I’ll find out on my re-visit to the doctor, but all in all, it IS good news!?!
So it was about 7pm before we got home and I got to join in on FNSI…..this is what it looked like when we left Townsville…..
a gorgeous big full moon shining on the ocean……was so lovely to have it guide us home!
Then I got stuck into some stitching in front of the telly….nothing like a good relaxing stitch…….
I finished off this adorable Rosalie Quinlan design made for the girls at Let’s Get Stitched in Melbourne this year. Couldn’t resist using a Cottage Garden thread…..Peacock…isn’t it just lovely??
…and then I thought I’d revisit an old friend, in Fee’s Framed Hexagons……
Didn’t get too much done on Friday night…..just partway through one block…..but I felt really under the weather on Saturday and then Sunday came down with a rotten case of gastro……so my stitching and I became close again…….along with the toilet!!!!! uuurgh!!!
I managed to get 6 hexies done and ready to frame….now I only have the last month’s hexies to do to be caught up, then the last lot of the alphabet hexies of Fee’s and I can put it all together!!!!
So, I see you’ve all been busy on Friday night too and got lots done……I love these nights where we can all stitch together and get things done….it’s a bit like a catch-up in more ways than one!!!!
This month’s winner has been drawn, and it is……..
Sue….of Just Sew Sue
she finished her gorgeous Fat Quarter Shop Bom from 2012 on Friday night ….well worth a pop over to take a look!
Congratulations Sue…..just swing me an email with your postal address and I’ll send you out this gorgeous charm pack……
If you haven’t had a chance to visit the girls…….you can go back to this post and link up to each of them for a visit….. can’t wait until next month!
Sugary hugs xo :o)
