FTF, & Colourful Friday

"Prairie Points"
"Flying Geese"
I know it is no longer Friday, Saturday in fact but I did find a couple of 'triangle items' for ROBYNS colourful Friday challenge which also included some Favourite things as well. My most favourite triangle is a very large "Toblerone" Choccy and I had to have napkins with choccies on them folded guessed it 'triangles'. My next favourite triangle would have to be 'prairie points'....I love them!!! I also found some flying geese which surprised me some what because it means that at some stage I actually successfully did some piecing (who knew?).
"Home we go"
Now even though there are some favoutites amongst those my very Favourite thing for this Friday, 15th July is we picked up our campervan and bought it home......we had a ton of fun (not really) getting it up our driveaway and had to call on our son to come and help. We have had some changes to our home since our previous van and we now have to rethink our options for getting it on to our property. It hasn't dampened our enthusiasm however and we know we will find an easier solution eventually. So My FTF is our "Swannie" I love ya, how I love ya my dear old Swannie! I know I've lost the plot! Don't forget to visit SHAY  for other FTF's
