When I was getting ready to make my items for the A&P show back in October, I trialed making a sprocket pillow to enter too, though I only signed up one to enter, which is on my previous post.
Was pretty chuffed with the end result and is now sitting on my bed.

Recently I participated in our local A&P show and again after a couple of years entered some items in the Home Industries section. This year I entered 9 items and got three 2nds, one 3rd and a 1st place.
I go these placings for a tomato relish, a baby feeder, and cleaned out the cross stitch section with some cross stitches I have done over the years and thought to show off.
The baby feeder was made out of a 2 1/2" charm pack and was sewn up pretty quickly, actually the day before I entered it.
I also entered a couple more things but didn't place in these such as this Disappearing 9-patch table runner
A cushion which the judges liked and suggested calico instead of white next time
This gloved oven mitt
and the three cross stitches I entered were these ones which you may have seen on my blog before.
A fun time and already planning for next years show. I may even enter some baking next time.

Then last Saturday hubby and I went for a quick drive up the coast to the historic Tolaga Bay wharf which is the longest wharf at 660 meters, in New Zealand.

Wow I have not been on here in over two months. It doesn't mean I haven't been busy. I have been working full time in the last couple of months, but this fortnight I have selected not to pick up any extra shifts because tiredness is catching up on me.
So what have I been doing on my treasured days off? Working on my Master of Nursing. Currently I am finalizing questionnaires and submitting my proposal to my tertiary provider ethics committee in two weeks time.
What else have I been doing. Stitching hexagon flowers together for my HexiMail4 swap on Facebook. I have done over 100 and have just over 40 to go, so on the home stretch. I have also been doing some secret swap stitching too.
Finally I have had a pestering cat hound me whenever I am home. He has some renal problems and overweight, so is on a special diet and for some reason thinks I will continuously feed him.
Here he is trying to give me a sexy pose

Back in 2013 I started completing blocks for the Dixie Diary BOM over at Civil War Quilts blog. I made four, then it became a UFO. However last week I decided to finish these and now all I have left to do is add cornerstones and sashings. Then only today I have realized one of the blocks has been pieced wrong, but an easy fix.
Looking forward to finishing this one. Now to find material to finish it.
