yesterday I met up with Shez and Lyn in Geelong, we met at Jiddys Patch as we all know where to find it!! I wonder why!!!
I have pinched Shez's photo as I didn't get the camera into action!!
We had lunch at the Whole foods cafe, the food was wonderful and down the back they have a store with all kinds of organic goodies!
Again photo courtesy of Shez!! Thanks Shez!!!
We did a little shopping and I found this cushion for son #2, he loves Combi vans, sadly no chowchow in the van!! Lol!!
I did some more work on one of the applique blocks

and glued it to the back ground

The last couple of nights I  have been sewing knitted rectangles together to make a rug for KOGO, I get sent the kitted pieces and put them together, then do some crochet around the edges.

this one I had laid out on the bed last Monday, I went out and when I got home found that hubby had rearranged them...some pieces are bigger than others, so the mixing of smaller and larger pieces has worked well. Have some friends coming to have a go at Free Range Quilting this morning, so had better get myself organised.
Happy sewing.
