Stitching Day

I was lucky recently to enjoy a lovely day stitching with friends and some very talented tutors - Libby Richardson, Natalie Bird from The Birdhouse and Katie from Cottage Garden Threads.  Now for some reason I didn't take a lot of photos - maybe too much talking going on. Not like me at all, but I can show you some of the gorgeous projects we received on the day -

The top two are Katie's projects - the old fashioned ducks on the wall and a little stitchery that covers a dvd case that then becomes a handy little sewing box.  The bottom two were Libby's projects - a cute little sewing basket and tag and gorgeous teddy cushion.

Natalie's projects were a cute little bunny zippered purse and a pincushion, which was the project I worked on during the day.  They are teeny tiny little suffolk puffs around the edge of the pincushion - about as big as your little fingernail. That will test me out.

This was the lovely pack of Tilda fabrics we were given to complete our projects.

My lovely friend Karen  had a birthday recently - thought you might like to see the little sewing folder I made for her birthday. Cheryl

Slow but Steady

Now even though I have been very slack in the blogging department I have been working away on a few bits and pieces -

I finished my little straw man block in wools - part of a mystery "Harvest" bom I am doing.

I hadn't shown you my progress to date, so here it is. Still a few to go. About to start on a lovely basket of juicy apples.

And no 2 star block was completed for "The Magic of Christmas"

And we have been taking advantage of these beautiful Autumn days at weekends - a weekend in Warrnambool - 30 degrees by day and lovely nights to sleep. It does get you inspired. And hopefully we can fit a few more weekends away with our camper while the weather is great.  Enjoy your week. Cheryl
