Crafting weekend

Oops!!! When we arrived at St Leonards we noticed the front passenger tyre on Annette's car was a little flat, it went down as we watched it. Saturday Annette called the RACV, the tyre was changed and spare put on - but it is a temp tyre and Annette was advised to get it fixed before driving back to Woodend. So we had an outing n Saturday morning to Drysdale.Tyre power here we come ..The tyre was examined and taken off to be fixed. We wandered off down the street to have a cuppa and see what we could see. We found an art exhibition, then had a cuppa, then looked in the community craft shop and then back to the tyre place - Annette then realised that she had the car keys in her bag!!!!! But not to worry, the tyre was fixed and put on the car in 5 mins and we returned to our sewing.

Busy, busy,busy!!! Annette finishes the fronts of her Xmas table mats! Such a productive day for her! Tania is working on her Xmas table runner and Marg was starting off on a french braid quilt.

Fabric and near completed items began to appear in unusual places as the day went on!! Annette began work on a raggy seams baby quilt.

I managed to get the Kiwi quilt well on the way - just needs a black border now and then off to be quilted.

Having adventures....

Well dear Gisborne Quilters, I'll be off hunting bears (or vice versa) for a while. I'll catch up with you and tell you about my bear adventures - and others - in October. And maybe a show and tell from my quilt shop adventures, too! Hope to see lots of new and exciting projects once I'm back!
