Favourite Things Friday with Shay

Good Morning everyone from overcast and damp Queensland. Firstly I just want to say
HOORAY FOR QUEENSLAND ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT......1 down 2 to go! 
Can you tell we are a bit 'rabid' here in this household when it comes to State of Origin. Here in this little house in the 'burbs Wally Lewis is KING! No discussions about it will be entered into.
Now on to "Favourite Things Friday" with SHAY I am going to be boring again and say it is a CD. You may remember in an earlier FTF I mentioned we were on the search for 2 favourite CD'S from our misspent youth from the Sanford Townsend band and that we had managed to get one and were still searching for the other which was our 'super fav!" Well that is my favourite thing this Friday......"WE GOT IT!" YAY!
We are now grooving away to "Smoke from a Distant Fire" and it is fantastic.

I have been working on block 10 of my Baltimore, Ring of Roses of Sharon and it has been quite time consuming. It didn't look that way but there is quite a bit of work in it. Still a ways to go yet.
Still lots of leaves and the smaller pink layer of roses and centre circles to go. The 8 gathered rosebuds were fun but took a little while to complete. I have also been doing a little secret sewing. But have 2 sneaky peeks......
And then there is this one.....
Hhhhmmmm! Intrigued???
As I have been managed to succumb to some lurgy at the moment my tissue box and I cannot be parted and my PJ's are my daily uniform. I will be taking it easy over the weekend apart from a family engagement party.
I wish everyone a great weekend doing whatever you love doing. Of course it wouldn't be Friday if I didn't finish with a little quote I love.....
"To be upset over what you don't have......is to waste what you DO have." by Ken Keyes Jr.
Blessings,

  1. So good that you found the CD you wanted. I can tell you have a lot of work in your quilt block but it is so pretty. O it will be so nice when you get the top done and quilted. Hope your feeling better.

  3. Memories..... I couldn't think who you were referring to until you showed their picture and the name of the song :) .I discovered a long forgotten box of LPs not long ago (or big CDs as the kids used to call them). Wow I wish I could have some of those on CD or MP3!

  17. Glad you found the cd, sweetie! Love your stitching, that rose of sharon is amazing. Feel better hon - pj's are my uniform even when I'm feeling good, lol!

  18. Don't really understand all the fuss about the rugby being from an Aussie Rules town, and have to say I am not that fussed over that either lol. Isn't great when you search and search for something that you want and finally find it. The Baltimore block is looking pretty good.

  19. I remembered the song, but not who sang it. Now I do! Looks like you've got some really cool stitching projects happening. Have a great weekend!

  21. I'm finally getting round to commenting Michelle which would be some indication of how MY last few days went. I do hope you;re feeling better.

    There is nothing like the feeling of elation you get when you find something you really want . I'm so glad you were able to source your CD! (Must say I've never heard of the group!)
