Playing and play dates.....

I've been a bit annoyed with the churn dash quilt not enough time to fiddle but not happy to sew so I had started joining some of the sashing.....finally yesterday morning I got it sorted..... I'm much happier with the layout now.......Only 1.5 rows left to join then back to sashing rows and joining the top......

Had a couple of play dates..... No sewing just socialising..... Drinks and bubbles by the pool with Jenny and lunch with Fiona, Kris and Maree........ Great to catch up even if it is only a short time..... I have such lovely friends I am very lucky.......

Worried about family near the massive fire in the Pilliga Scrub which is not even making the news.....it's burnt nearly 120,000acres....massive......still out of control and the weather is very hot..... Not helping.......

Matching colours........

Wow what a difference today....... This year we have not had a day under 34........today it is only just 27......feels like heaven......
The Bird on the Border has flown in and we are sewing away...... Actually not a lot of sewing for me yet but lots of prep work to keep sewing my 10 mins each day.......
 A quick trip to the Home Patch and a sale saw me getting the setting triangle fabric for the churn dash quilt..(plus some other treasures)... So that is cut along with the corner stones.... Also cutting some bindings.......
But colour coordinated drinks is the go......
