Lovely stitching day.

Sandra's yum "Caramel Meringue" cake
Clip Clop aka "Willie"
Ann's Cards
I've had a lovely day stitching with my friends at Sandra's Sandra is a devine cook and today we were treated to "Caramel Meringue" cake which I have provided a photo of for your enjoyment (no wait that was me).....YUM! My lovely friend Kay was completing little "Clip Clop" by Leanne Cornford in Handmade Vol 29 No 2 which for reasons known only to our group we have renamed  protective "Willie". Kay is making this dear little horsey person for her youngest little granddaughter and I think we all enjoyed the finishing process as much as Kay did. LOL! A great time was had by all....such special ladies to me!!
I have also tried to photograph Anns article in "Australian Cardmaking" Vol 17 no 5.  page 82. If you love making cards it's well worth a look. They are such pretty cards. I am so very proud of my clever friend and I'm sure this only the beginning. She is a very talented lady. Well done my friend!!!

    I find it fascinating, since blogging, how many people I "know" who are featured in publications. We used to think it was a big deal to get our names in the university paper.
    I like reading the little bit at the end where they say something about the author or creator.

  10. A day stitching with friends, good food, what else could you ask for....Willie is adorable!

  11. What a wonderful way to spend a day. I dont do it often enough because most of my RL friends are decidely uncrafty!

    Now I want cake for breakfast....
