Weekend Report

I've just realised it 's nearly the end of the weekend and I haven't done a write up for Friday Night Sew In - whoops!
By the time I got home after work and the supermarket on Friday I didn't have much stitching time.
I stitched a few flowers on a secret project.....
Here's a little more of it with some more hand stitching.
(This applique is turned under machine applique and it all needs a good press!). So that was my Friday night...not too much to show really but at least I got to sit down with my feet up for a bit! Thank you to Cheryll for hosting us and to the 23 ladies who sewed along with me.

Today I spent the day at my machine, busily and happily quilting away —
— and making some progress.
I really needed a stretch and a good dose of fresh air when I stopped so went out for a bit of a wander—
 —Shut the cows away in their paddock —
— Walked through their paddock to a bushy area behind it.
Had a good explore through this....wandered till we found
a fence and came home a completely different route. 
Closer to the river the undergrowth was all weed... the poor
wee dog could barely get through it and depended on my
footsteps to trample a path for him!
We got home in the end after a good little workout...blew a few cobwebs away! It was a nice way to end the day.
This has been quite a quick little post for me.....thanks for stopping by, 
'See you next time,
happy stitches,

Nice to manage some stitching, sometimes our sewing time gets a bit tricky to claim! Lovely pics of your place.

Beautiful project you are working on Raewyn, love your bush on the farm, it looks so green...the little dog would have had a workout.

Sandra Walker said...

I know exactly what you mean about stepping away and stepping out into the fresh air. LOL on your 'poor wee dog'! Raewyn I could game at your quilting for hours....

great you have a nice place right on your back doorstep to break away for fresh air. Lovely quilting BTW.

I'm intrigued by your project. It looks quite cute. Fantastic quilting! How nice to get out for a good walk at the end of the day. It was -42 here this morning and warmed up to -32 during the day. Beautiful and sunny though.

The peeks at your secret project have me very curious. Looks awfully cute!!
How great that must be to never leave your property, and have such a wonderful place for a tramp. Lucky that the wee dog didn't get totally lost!

Lin said...

Nice work Raewyn - I love that cute little flower pot! xx

Wendy Caton Reed said...

Adorable stitching! The walk through the brush looks like fun but I'm curious about critters? I love walking in the woods here, but we don't have anything poisonous to think about.

Anthea said...

What a beautiful walk Raewyn... and wow your quilting is gorgeous, well done!
