Great Weekend

Hi all, I hope you are enjoying the Stitch-A-Long.....
I had a great weekend doing one of "My Favourite Things"...
Watching Jacky Mister play Rep Basketball in Griffith....
His team has made the finals on the top of the ladder...
Here he is in action....
I think I should call him :"Jumping Jack Flash"
Nothing like 2 days on the side of a basketball
court to get some stitching done....
I have done some more blocks for my Favourite things Quilt....
"Family"
"Home"
That chimney smoke is just too cute.....
"Gardening all Day"
Hmmm....My garden could do with some of this...
"Butterflies Fluttering"
Still no rows joined but at least a few more Blocks ready to go...
Stitching night with the girls tonight so
I hope to get a couple more finished...
Until next time, Happy Stitching

Kate
