Stitching and Sausages

Our last Friday Night With Friends for the year on Friday night, with our lovely hostess CHERYLL from Gone Stitchin' sailed home especially to host us.
I had Nana duties earlier on but settled down in the evening to work on the stitchery on my Sophie block from Angels Story. Very pleased to have finished it.
Bit hard to photograph!
Earlier in the week I got the first border on my "Wings" centrepiece.
And prepped for the next row....

Yesterday my Mister and I volunteered for this...

Our son Lucas is cycling 2 legs in the Tour de Cure from Mackay in April next year, raising much needed funds for cancer research.
Being currently on life saving immunotherapy for stage 4 Melanoma its a cause close to his heart and ours.....hubby cooked snags from 7am - 3pm with lots of help from wonderful volunteers. Even his local member came down and gave a hand.
Yours truly served lovely customers for 4 hours and then did a handover of the Grandkids from there other Grandparents......
Home to Nanas to meet up with the cousins for a very welcome swim!
Nana included lol! We raised a lot of dollars which Lucas and all of us were thrilled about. We are all tired but happy and definitely.....ALL SAUSAGED OUT!
Thank you also to my lovely stitchy and art friends....I recently rattled a donation tin before them for this cause and $160 came out of that little tin....wonderful!

I'm going to check out other Friday night stitchers later today.....we are off to have lunch with some lovely friends first though.....
I even baked Macadamia and Cranberry cookies amongst the chaos....
As a challenged baker I was pretty impressed lol! Now to pop them in a pretty box!
I do hope you are enjoying your Sunday.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
