Last Friday I headed up to Nundle to meet up with Bec and her lovely children. We met up at Cottage on the Hill and had a lovely visit with Kerry. I did not purchase much here, just some FQs for the Nundle Fat Quarter Birthday swap and some silk thread and needles to have a go at needleturn applique (trying to be strong). After visiting Kerry with headed back into town to the Nundle Wool Mill. It was here that I decided that it was time to try my hand at crocheting. I have been admiring some of the lovely projects that people have been doing and decided it was time to give it a go. I purchased a book, some seconds wool and a hook. After the wool mill we decided to go to the park and have a picnic lunch so the kids could have a run around. We sat on rugs in the park for nearly two hours chatting and looking through quilting books. It was a lovely afternoon and we definiately have to do it again soon.
I have since had a crocheting lesson with my Mum (who tells me I am just as frustrating to teach as an adult as I was as a child lol). She is left handed and I am right handed so it was very interesting to say the least but I am now starting to get the hang of it and hope to start on something fun soon.
Aren't we all just gorgeous !!!! And don't you just love that quilt behind us. You have probably worked out by now that Rural Jardin is my fav fabric range at the moment and this quilt that Kerry has designed behind us is just gorgeous.
FINALLY I have finished this block for the Gardeners Journal quilt that I am doing with the Stitch A Long blog. There is an unbelievable amount of work in the house stitchery and I thought I was never ever going to finish it but I did and here it is.
Well I must be off to take DS to soccer training and get the dinner on for DH who is off to work tonight.
Hope all you Mums out there are surviving the school holidays - don't you just love them lol!!!
