2 New Patterns

Good morning everyone on this very warm Brisbane morning. Feels like Summer is here already.
As promised I have 2 new patterns that are available for purchase now.
The first is a sweet little tote bag inspired by catching up with blogging friends last year. The little birdie graces my blog header. You may even recall me stitching it. Tea & Stitching with Friends Tote Bag 

It is the perfect little gift to make for a stitching friend or for your self to carry your stitching projects in.
You may purchase it by emailing me at for $13.50Aus plus P&H for overseas customers. Postage is free within Australia.
The second pattern is  Christmas Hearts which consists of 4 different little stitchery designs (all of my favs...frosty, gingie, reindeer and sweet birdie) stitched on to a felt heart. You could use them as a Christmas ornie, gift parcel decoration or stitch all 4 and hang them together for a sweet little display.
You can purchase the set for $13.50 Aus plus P&H for overseas customers. Just a reminder if you are an overseas customer I only accept payment via Paypal. Well I do hope you like these latest little offerings. I loved creating them. So if you wish to purchase either just email me.

I have lots more waiting in the wings folks I just need to stitch faster LOL! A holiday is so good for your creativity and getting the juices flowing...or the needle flying.
One thing I am doing at the moment relates to how much fun I had when I created the "B is for..." Hexie table centre ages ago. You all seemed to love it also. as many of you made it.

When I created this table centre I had also drawn up lots of other designs about 10 in all and put them aside to make a quilt of some sort at a later date....well that day has arrived and I am working on it at present. All I can say is it involves redwork and hexies....So stay tuned for that one. I have also had a wonderful time stitching some individual redwork pieces....happy bunny! I will post some sneakies of those later.
I seem to be getting a little pile of stitcheries that need to be assembled.

Before I go I had to put my Nanna hat on and post some recent piccies of my darling Grandies. We could not believe how much they had grown in the 5 weeks we were away. Yes I know that's what they are supposed to do but you really notice it when you haven't seen them for a wee while.
So firstly our gorgeous little girls...
"Miss C"
What a cutie pie!!
"Miss E"
Still has the most amazing hair. Cheeky chops! Now for the boys.
"Master L"
He is a huge Star Wars fan and he was very proud of his efforts assembling these. He also earned the money for them by being our Mail collector when we were away on holidays.
"Master C"
He was thrilled to catch 2 fish when he visited us on holidays and went fishing with Daddy and Grampy. He is Daddy's best little helper in all things....whether Daddy needs help or not lol.
We are so blessed with these beautiful little people I just wanted to share.
That's it for me today.
Thanks for visiting,
Blessings Michelle xxx
