FNSI and other things....

This last week a few more ornies arrived in the post box....

Susan sent me this gorgeous dainty angel....


and Narelle sent this lovely card... but I'm using as an ornie...


How cute is this mini block ornie from Marilyn....


...and the sweetest tree from Christine...


... thanks ladies... I am getting a lovely scattering of ornies on my bookshelf....

I also got a lovely box of candied nuts from Kris.... no picture... sorry..... Hubz found them.....

Well, Friday evening was FNSI hosted by Wonderful Wendy..... Hubz and I had some leftovers to eat and turned on the TV to watch 20/20 Big Bash cricket....

In the sewing room I worked on some 3 1/2" blocks I had made previously....


... and turned them into rather fun stars....


... then I sat down to watch the end of the game with some hand stitching....


This Saturday morning was Hubz' hobby day and time for bottling the latest brew ... and I helped with the bottle top labeling (very important job)


... it won't be ready for drinking for a week or so but I was rewarded with a glass brewed a month ago with my toastie for lunch....


.... I have placed out the stars I made which now need sashing and 'secondary stars' to be done....


Righto, Gotto Go, nana nap required after a glass of beer then I want to work on those 'secondary stars' .....

I hope you all have a lovely weekend with not too much to do for the lead up to Christmas
