Reports & Results

Hello! Everything is back to normal here at Bits 'n Bobs with the computer being wiped and rebooted and the WiFi issue being sorted by none other than.......ME! Proof that persistence pays off!
I did have a lovely Friday but most of it was spent in Hobart Town....our car needed a service so the farmer and I went to the movies to see 007s new movie "Spectre".  This is big news.....the last time my farmer took me to the movies was to see "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert"....I am sure that was back in the 90s! We also had lunch....wasn't I spoilt?

The day got even better when I arrived home to find block 3 of Flowerville in my mailbox and even though all it takes is some whisperweft ironed onto the back before the stitching starts....I didn't go with that for FNSI.

I thought it was high time I did some work on Brookfield since I am 3 months worth behind on that.  Last night I traced the baskets onto the freezerpaper.

And got them cut out

I did all this while munching on a cup of cherries....the first from this seasons crop and picked straight from the tree makes them even more delicious.

I was pretty tired after very little sleep the night before, an early wake up call, and a full day out in town so it was an earlier than usual night for me but today I will continue with these blocks until all of them are at least prepared up to the the stitching stage and then I can grab them whenever.

I hope you had a great night of sewing and I will be along over the next couple of days to take a look at what you got up to on.


  1. lovely sewing and how lucky to have a cherry tree... I think they are my most favourite of fruits.

  2. I am looking forward to seeing Spectre. Very nice mail and great work on your baskets. I am very jealous re the cherries.

  3. Hi Cathy ,those cherries look yummy and you had a very productive Friday night,well done xx

  4. Such cute little baskets. Looking forward to seeing the end result.

  5. Good on your hubby taking you to the movies! My hubby last took me to the movies in the 80s - I've had to take myself since then! Your little baskets are very cute.... and gosh those cherries look good!

  6. Sounds like you made the best of the car service trip. Looks like you got lots done on Friday even with an early bed time.

  7. Hello Cath, Your cherries look really delicious, how lovely to have your own tree! I love the little baskets, so cute! I look forward to seeing more of this stitching!
    Hope you are having a great week!
