Stitching with Friends

The sun was out for only a short time but the enthusiasm for our stitching kept us busy working on our new project " red robin - pouch and jewellery keep " by Melissa Grant of "One Day  in May". 




Anna busy stitching her block, forgot to take a photo of her gorgeous fabrics and pieced Block.

Kaye has been very busy with work but brought along her new light box to trace out the pattern and start the applique and embroidery.


I did manage to almost finish mine.

We missed Dawn and Sue today as both are a bit under the weather but looking forward to catching up next stitching day.

Happy Stitching........

Winnie Pooh panel,plus 2 lovely butterfly cot panels, newsprint fabric as a background, plus some lovely brights. While there I bumped into Annie and was lucky enough to have a little chat with Rosalie Dekker who was there for the day.
    Next  Craftpaks in Heathmont another lovely patchwork shop and then lunch at one of the restaurants. Sorry forgot to take any pics, we were having to much fun.
