Linen and Lace Revisited

I had such a lovely time at the last....
That I had to go again and I took a may know her. Teresa from All Things Vintage .....
Such lovely company and much oohing and aahing over all the lovely treasures. Coffee had to be taken of course.....I think i almost love this bit the best...almost! Beautiful roses from Marilyn's very own garden adorned our table.
Of course special teacups were the order of the day.....which one will we have?
Our vintage tea cloth was just gorgeous.....hand embroidered with cross stitch.
I can't show you my purchases because they are gifties but they did come from here....
My friend Tracey White's lovely table and of course Marilyn's beautiful shop.
I had to have a quiet word with the little people who lived on this gorgeous stall...
and tell them I was Christmas shopping and I was very sad that they couldn't come home with me today  :(
Thank you Teresa for your lovely company today.
Ok on the stitching front this little phrase has been running continually in my head -
"I'm late! I'm Late for a very important date!!!" So it has been head down and tail to the! sew! sew!
and then .....quilting, quilting quilting!!!
Hopefully tonight will see me finished and then a tiny bit of binding and I will be done...Yay! Phew! I think I am actually going to make it.
Would you like to know what has been side tracking me...apart from instruction writing?
Lovely brand new pencils and drawing paper...
For me it is like having chocolate in the cupboard and saying "I'll just have one"....can't be done!
Well that's me caught up. I am off to hop in the pool for the second time since I arrived home to cool off. A bit of a scorcher here today.
Take care,
Namaste and blessings,
Michelle xxx

  2. Hi Michelle how nice that you had such a lovely day with a lovely friend at such a lovely place,enjoy your dip my friend.xx

  3. What a wonderful shop to visit , especially with a like minded friend. Those roses are stunning.

  4. Looks like a lovely place to visit. Gorgeous roses and lovely company too. I think 'scorcher' is almost too mild to cover today's heat!

  5. Looks like a shop that you could get lost in. Always good to take a friend.

  6. Ooo! I'd love to visit there some day! Sounds like you two had a lovely day.

  7. Dear Michelle, that is a shop I would visit as often as I could!

  8. Such a beautiful place to shop and spend time in :)

  10. What a beautiful way to spend a day and such a gorgeous shop.. Can you share some heat...

  11. Lucky you getting to go to that gorgeous shop again Michelle. Glad I'm not the only one dragging the chain with secret sewing

  12. Summer has arrived with a vengeance, hasn't it - 42 here yesterday with a hot dry wind, really nasty. Much better to stay inside and sew! What a beautiful place Linen and Lace is, would love to visit one day.

  13. You've been very busy Michelle, but then again you're always a whirlwind.

    Lovely sewing and quilting and afternoon tea with a friend is the perfect way to spend some weekend time.

  14. Ok, that does it. I'm coming for a visit, and we must go to Linens and Lace. How fun that you got to go with Theresa!!

    Good luck with the stitching deadline.
