....and lunch was on the menu! LOL!!! SW and I had been invited to attend the Northern Volunteers luncheon at one of our local pubs. Very nice lunch and company :) So thank you to the NV's for inviting us.Granny Loz's place. As you can see, there was a bit of thread hanging around, scissors and pins...
...Shay, Loz and Denise missed out on the action a bit in this department! lol
Tara shared her effort so far on the FW quilt! Very nice indeed :)
Also where she is up to on her Mrs Billings Quilt! Another nice effort:)
A lovely day once again was had by all and I think we went home a little exhausted and wishing we hadn't started this FW project!!!!
Anyway...SW and I had tea and then I sat down to work on a couple of the little kits I had bought at the fair last weekend. The first was a little old fashioned pram. If you take note there is a 'bobbin' looking item at the bottom right of the picture - this was the 'baby' before it got dressed up.
And this was the little one finished before being put in the pram. (The ruler is in centimetres by the way!)
This is the finished product. I was quite happy with the kit and how well it went together.
I then decide to open the next kit and do the little Kauri House - the is the front of the house completed with the pram.
Of course every home needs furnishing...so I had bought the kits of furniture to make up too for the inside! (Made a blunder and put the chimney side of the house on the wrong side tho! :((( ) Hate making mistakes like that - another 'Amish' move for me ----- and for those that don't know about the Amish, they make beautiful quilts - all have a deliberate error - also their dolls have no faces - as they believe that only God can make the perfect image.
Then I moved on to a dining table and chair set - this is the next size up from the house and pram. I was rather pleased with these - even though they look a tad wonky on here - but they do sit flat and are level!!!
So a productive evening was had by me and off to bed I went! Today is Mothers Day in Australia, so I wish all the mums past and present a Happy Mothers Day - hope you have a wonderful and relaxing day xxx
