Long weekend happenings

We have had a long, mostly wet, weekend - a great chance to get some sewing done.
I finished block 8 of the Boys Story quilt ...
This is Charlie's favourite cartoon strip because the boy gets zapped!!
I have also finished piecing together the table runner so now I am up to quilting it...
On Friday, husband Paul and I went to a garden centre and bought a Blush Babe apple tree and a Satsuma mandarin and Paul planted them straight away ... yum ... we can't wait to get our own fruit!
A productive weekend!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Happy stitching, Wendy
