Stitching with Friends

Good morning all....bit bleary eyed here this morning. Last night I visited my lovely friend Diane for an evening of stitching with some other friends. Is there anything nicer??? It was a very late night with lots of chatting and laughing and sharing. One of our friends the very delightful Monica bought a long some  gorgeous show and tell and of course being a dedicated blogger I just happened to have my camera handy.
Have a look at this gorgeous quilt Monica has made..
It is just so soft and pretty. Monica is on the left and her helper is Robyn who has to have a sleep over to come and sew with us as she lives a good 2 hours away. A little close up of one of the blocks..
Monica loves birdies too. Now that was not all Monica shared. She also had a couple of other gorgeous projects too. The embroidery on the coat hanger is just exquisite and look at that cute sewing machine.
Oh so beautiful stitching. Thanks Monica for allowing yourself to be harassed by my camera and sharing your beautiful work.
I did far too much talking but did manage to applique a couple of birdies...
A really lovely evening. Thanks girls.
I can also tell you I managed to complete "Winter" in my "Season's Stitcheries" group of minis. YAY!!
So a bit of pattern writing ahead and also I am going to draw up an alternative for all those Anti Frosties out there....sounds like something you put in your car radiator in Winter doesn't it. LOL!!
Be kind to yourself today.
