Eventful Weekend...

Saturday I visited the local patchwork shop to buy some tea dye fabric for some projects I have sitting here. 

I arrived at the shop at 11.00am, it was packed.  I had to leave Bridie in line so that I could get Candice and drop her off at work. 

Before I left there were ladies with many bolts of fabric for the low price of $4.00. 

So when I came back I had a bit of a look and decided to get a small amount.

My aim was to use some of this fabric to make mobile phone holders and pot holders for Bridie's school fete which is on March 16th, one day before the Deb ball.The Red fleck I am going to use to border my Tis the Season.

On Saturday afternoon I managed to get my borders on my Tis the Season.  I am really happy with how the blocks have come together.
oops this picture is showing the blocks prior to sewing them together...

I am going to the patchwork shop again tomorrow to get some bottle green fabric for a small border before using that fleck fabric as the final border....
I am so loving this as it is coming together.

Bridie had a friend stay over and today I took them to the water park which is near the Lake.  It is great with water buckets, fire hoses, showers, sprays... and more....
Here are some pics...

I also spent time trying to locate my 16 year old who went missing for 8 hours!  She eventually came home after a trip to Yass with the bf without telling her mum!

Off to iron clothes to wear to work, it is a sad day tomorrow at work as one of the gorgeous girls frin downstairs, the main phone answerer has resigned and is leaving the office.  She is in the process of buying a business which is located both in Parkes and Forbes so we get to see her lots, "Painted Daisies" will be her business...

 I bet those who ring in will also miss her friendly giggles of laughter as the Coooeees are spoken down the line.

Until next time.... Happy Stitching....
