Stitching with Friends

        Another great day spent stitching and catching up after a holiday break. Dawn Sew Much to Quilt   was back from her overseas trip and ready to dive back into our Yoko Saito Mystery Quilt. Unfortunately Sue couldn't join us as her mother has been very ill, Julia couldn't make it as her husband has also been unwell. We also missed Melody and Kaye. We are now starting on block 3. It did take quite awhile for Dawn and myself to get back into the swing of things so not much progress today...
Christine  MacDonald's Patch on the other hand was very productive working on a secret project , which is looking gorgeous.

Little Quilt Store Surprise

Another detour or should I say we drove a little further before turning back to head for home.
A quick visit to Lynette Andersons Little Quilt Store.....LOVED IT..... Also how lucky am I Lynette was happy to have a photo with me and to sign my book.

BUT sad news Saturday will be their last day of trading through the shop. The doors are closing on the iconic store. Good news though they will still be trading online so you can still purchase all your favourite patterns books fabrics etc.....

                 


                          

Happy stitching.................

Small Getaway and a Special Meeting

On our way to Mooloolaba we detoured so that I could pop in to Robyn's for a sit and stitch morning. I had been posting on Facebook our travels and when Robyn saw I was heading their way she organised a stitching day with Michelle Ridgeway and friends Theresa and Diane. I was so excited to finally meet Michelle and had a wonderful morning with the ladies.




I will catch up with everyone's blog on our return.

Happy stitching.......
