Busy Days

I haven't a great deal to share as I have been head down working and trying to stay cool. I did however have a lovely day yesterday at my friend Lorel's home for our first stitching group get together for 2014. Is there anything nicer than being with dear friends, catching up on news, a cuppa out of beautiful china, lovely food and of course a bit of stitching ( if you can be quiet long enough to get the needle into the fabric).
I worked on my little Dresden's and have now appliqued them to their background squares...1 to go!
I have also finished a couple of my little "frock" bookmarks...love the word "Frock". Very unfashionable now but I think it alludes to a very special dress.
Aren't they cute! I received one for my birthday from Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' and I love it and I couldn't resist making a couple (with Cheryll's permission of course) They are all ready in their little packets waiting for their new owners.
Two of my dear friends have led me astray (yes Kay and Lorel) and it has resulted in yours truly going through a lot of my photos of our road trips. While doing so I came across a photo I took of a framed quote I took at Flagstaff Hill in the Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage at Warrnambool in Victoria and I think they are wise words we could all aspire too...
Well folks must dash! Hunting and gathering awaits me today.
Enjoy your Thursday,
Blessings Michelle xxx

  3. Wasn't "posh frock" an expression used by a character in a TV show, ages ago, about a young couple who dug up their front lawn and made it into a farm in suburbia? Wearing her posh frock was a treat on a special occasion.

  17. Hi Michelle, your frock also reminded me of the T V series " The Good Life" the episode where Barbara tore her one posh frock, husband Tom could not understand why she was so upset as she only needed old clothes to muck out the pig pen.
    Love your little Dresden Plates, and that wonderful quote.
    Hugs R.
