Stitching Day with Friends

It was a lovely day for catching up and stitching with friends, the sun was shining and not a black cloud in the sky. Usually I forget to take pictures.

                                            Carin working on Flowerville

Shelley working on her beautiful block using blanket stitch.

                                          Lyn showing us her Auntie Green's Garden that she had finished.

Jackie and Diane were knitting and I started work on another block of my flowerville. 

Happy stitching....

Dutch Treat

Not sure if I will use this one a bit darker than I want in the quilt.

Also my apologies I am posting and on the Internet using my iPhone so I haven't been commenting on any blogs as it is so hard using the smaller format will be back normally Saturday :)

Daisy Meadows

Another block finished for Daisy Meadows. This makes three.

I will say this is testing my sewing machine skills as now I am hand stitching most of my projects. Lots of unpicking and back to slow stitching until I get used to the machine again...

The story so far...

Chook Shed Party Week end

Thank you Chooky for hosting the chooksheds 4th birthday,I had lots of fun sewing all weekend with everyone,to see what everyone else got up to go here.

I began early Saturday morning stitching a few felt circles ,later I went and watched my grandsons soccer practice.

  Back home I stitched some  felt  circles then again in the car on the way to Phillip island. Once unpacked and settled I began stitch some of my Stonefields hexies.


Sunday morning I began early making a curtain for Mathew ( my eldest grandson 22) 


Then back to sewing a few more hexies. After lunch a walk between showers ,drizzle and rain . Later I laid out some of the hexies onto the background fabric and started stitching them on.

                      Finally out of moth balls :))

                 Laying them out     

Starting to stitch them down.
