Complete Roll Call

Yesterday I spent the day with my stitching friends at the very lovely Sandra's home. It was a great day and for once everyone was present which was so nice. Seems these days one or more of us is going off here or there. Our friend Denise is off to S.A. for a nice adventure with her hubby. I wish them safe travels.
Sandra ( who just happens to have the best taste in everything) is making another gorgeous quilt in the softest  and prettiest hues. Lorel and I managed to talk (coerce) her into a photo with it. I didn't have my camera with me..I know terrible but luckily my friend Lorel could oblige.
It is just soooo pretty! Thanks for sharing it Sandra.
I have returned to my little Bears and have finished another block No 7 and I am now working on No 8.
As I have been stitching a few gifts from my Stitcher's Alphabet pattern I decided I would like one myself. So I have stitched my Initial and chosen the fabric and hopefully will get my very own "M" journal made soon.
I thought I would try it in multi colours rather than redwork and I quite like how it turned the spotty fabric.
I must dash. Lots of chores to do today, mostly "Domestic Goddess" stuff and you know how I love that.
Enjoy your day and be kind to yourself.
Blessings Michelle xxx
