fridays.....

Apart from the obvious reason, Friday is my favourite day of the week. It's the day I go to sit n sew at my LQS, a couple of times a month it's either FNWF or FNSI, and I usually meet up with my sister or a friend 
for coffee or lunch.

At sit n sew this week, Gabbie shared her amazing and beautiful quilt she has been working on. I LOVE this, the colours are beautiful - and I have claimed first dibs on it if she ever gives it away!!


This week Gabbie was also working on her small quilt which is in gorgeous colours too.....



I have been working on my pincushion kit which Sue kindly sent me - perfect 'Tania" colours, thanks Sue!


Unfortunately progress is VERY slow going as my hand is still quite painful, but I will get there in the end.....


Hopefully at some point it will look something like this -


Last night of course was FNWF which I spent trimming my hexie blocks so I can start putting them together


...and starting a small secret project involving these,,,,,

A little while ago I joined instagram, and while I haven't put much on there, I shared these photos of some things I have loved doing recently -


...a fun visit to Typo after my last oncology visit


I just LOVED this 'fox' calendar so it came home with me - aren't the eyes amazing!  And it goes from Aug 2015, right through to Dec 2016


a fun coffee date with my gorgeous niece...


a freezing, frosty morning spent tucked up in a warm bed with a snuggly puppy and playing on pinterest


... and reading this book which I am really enjoying.

Hope your Friday was fun, and I wish you all a fantastic weekend
