Wednesday Night Stitching.

On Wednesday night my friend Diane asked me over to catch up for the New Year, wish our lovely friend Sue a Happy Birthday and do a bit of stitching. I wanted to share with you a beautiful bed topper that another friend Theresa was hand quilting for Diane. It is cross hatch quilting and has beautiful needleturn applique decorating it. Also stitched so beautifully by Theresa. Here is a very happy Diane (left) and it's very talented creator Theresa (right)....
Isn't it just gorgeous!!!
Here is Sue with some of her birthday loot.
Diane had told me that she had also invited a friend that she used to work with who loved to stitch to come along as well. Monica was just lovely and had 2 gorgeous bags she had made that we just drooled over (forgot to take a photo). In the course of our conversation it turns out Monica is one of my lovely followers and recognised "Strawberry Quilt" I had taken along to work on.
Talk about a small world. We had such a good time we are going to do it again real soon.
As you all know talking is something I seem to do very well so only a few quilting stitches got done on my quilt. I haven't much stitching as I am playing host to a little almost 5 Grandson. I did however manage to get some stitchery on to another journal cover but it is just a sneaky as it is a gift too.

We have had a little rain from the edges of the northern cyclone I think so even though it is higher humidity at least it is a little cooler around here. Have a great Friday everyone. I am off to do a little hand quilting.
Blessings Michelle xxx
