Lots Has Been Happening

over the last couple of weeks, but I will break it up into a few posts so I don't lose you by the end of it. Firstly a big thankyou to Chooky for helping me with my blog. Had not been able to access it from my laptop, so with Chooky's help did what had to be done and it was fine. Until in the middle of post my laptop froze and nothing I did could do would fix it. So another week went by - no laptop, so finally after a complete factory re-set (mind you the laptop is 6 months old) I am now happily back to blog hopping. 

I have been stitching this - starting  two weeks ago as  part of Friday Night With Friends over at Cheryll's -
 
It is a FignBerry design "Hummingbird Manor".

I also did some stitching on the Monday of the Queens Birthday long weekend with Jeanette from Jeanettes Place who had missed Chooky's chookshed celebrations and was having a little stitching party of her own.  So this was what I worked on on the Monday -
Part of a wallhanging that will eventually grace my loungeroom wall - a Gail Pan design "Cottage in Bloom". I'm sure I can fit a couple more things on my lounge wall, so was thinking this and definitely Michelle's very cute little free bear design that you can download over on her blog www.michelleridgwaydesigns1.blogspot.com.  She will definitely fit in perfectly with my house and all the bears that grace it.

 I also finished the top of a Gail Pan bom I had been working on, together with my friend Karen. The pressure was on to have it finished before Gail's classs in Stawell, but I didn't get it quilted. So here's my top of "Sewing Angels". You will have seen snippets of it over the last couple of months -
Have a lovely weekend. Cheryl

It's a pain when technology fails us, but it does create a lot of extra sewing time. Your stitching projects are all so lovely. Great BOM.
