FNWF and Catchups

Friday night was time once again for
Even though Cheryll was not at home she left the key under the mat and we helped ourselves to a fun night of stitching....virtually that is.
My efforts were another ring completed for the next block on Blessings....bit boring for you folks but quite enjoyable for me. Thank you CHERYLL for having us at your place again.
I also finished my February little Dresden block for
If you click HERE you can visit to see what everyone is working on this month.
This months colour was brown with pink as a highlight if you wished.

I am really enjoying these little blocks so far.
What a treat I had yesterday. My blogging friend Raewyn from Stitching Farmgirl in New Zealand made a flying visit to cuddle her gorgeous twin Granddaughters this weekend and we got to catchup for a cuppa. Lovely FIONA from Bubzrugz joined us too.

Raewyn has been stitching my Calendar Bears and bought her quilt to show me...
It is so beautifully stitched and Raewyn's quilting is so pretty and delicate. It was such a treat to see and I love that my little bears are loved across the ditch too in NZ.
We are all still wondering where the afternoon went as it just flew by in a flash....laughter and chat may be a clue. Lol!
Such delightful ladies. I so enjoyed spending time with them. It is still such a wonder to me the beautiful friends I have made through blogging.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend too.
Namaste and Blessings,
