First Saturday of the Month

2012 is racing along at a nice pace and I am struggling to keep up with it.  We celebrated our 42nd (eek!) wedding anniversary on Friday and before I knew it the next day was the first Saturday of the month.

Ah, how I love first Saturdays - it means a short drive to the local pub to meet up with the Sydney SCQuilters. This was my second visit to this local quilting group since returning to Sydney and they are such a friendly and welcoming lot of quilters.

Show & Tell produced some wonderful works in progress,

including this glorious piece of knitted patchwork.  

The beauty of meeting at a pub is that packed lunches are a thing of the past.  This delicious pumpkin salad with candied walnuts and fresh figs was perfect - so much better than a peanut butter sandwich.

Hopefully by next month my Plan will have sprung into action, as by then the Kaffe Fassett fabric which I ordered on line will have arrived (fingers crossed) and my first block will be well under way.

I have made a tentative start, but can't progress any further until the background fabric arrives.  So far all is going to Plan - what can possibly go wrong?
