I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Totally Useless SAL Update - New Moon 27 September 2011

Ok, now this is not funny.... where has the last month gone?  It doesn't seem that long ago since I did my last ORT report.  If time keeps slipping away this quickly it is going to be Christmas before I know it and I haven't even thought about Christmas stitching.....

So here we are again.... another ORT report.  As you have read in previous posts I haven't done a lot of stitching so far this month..... but I did have a finish -yippee!

This month's photo is taken in the craft room where this darling dragon lives overseeing all the crafty things that go on in there - mostly Hubby's quilting journeys!  I do my stitching in the family room at the kitchen table.... I know I should be using the craft room - there is a telly in there with Foxtel but for some reason I always park myself at the kitchen table when I stitch.

(Speaking of Foxtel, for those of us that watch "EastEnders" on UKTV David Essex has arrived!  I read ages ago that he was joining the cast of EastEnders and last night's episode ended with the man himself.  Can't wait for tonight's episode - I will be glued to the telly for the duration!)

Sorry, I digress (again)..... now to the ORT report:

September's stitching was mainly the "Cheerful Notes" quilt square and the pink of the kitty card that I started a couple of days ago.  The thin black ORT's on the top of the jar are from hubby's trousers where I had to re-stitch his hem the other night.  All ORT's are welcome in my jar!!!

Thanks for the kind wishes about the storm, Noni - the weather has been atrocious here all week - the long drive home from work has been quite fraught really. At least the drought is well and truly over! lol!

.... and yes two wicked kitties, but I love them still.
Hugs, Kaye xoxox

P.S.I have been reading the Elm Creek quilt books, too. I am up to The Union Quilters but have yet to get my hands on a copy.

Lovely books to read.
