Amongst the Teacups.

Yesterday my stitching friends came to my home for a day of stitching, tea drinking and lots of chatting.
So I got the table all set. The thing I love about these girls is we always get out our best teacups and use them well. Doesn't matter whether they are heirlooms or just favourites....such a nice thing to do! They also hear a lot of secrets....lol!
We had a little bit of Easter early as I won't see them before then. Out came some of my very old favourites and a few newbies too! They have made a sweet display on my cupboard.
My lovely friend Lorel is charging ahead with her "Country at Heart" alphabet blocks and I got to get a photo of her progress...
They are stitched so beautifully! Thanks Lorel for letting me share them.
I did do a little stitching....about 5 stitches in truth lol! May/may not have been chatting too much! But I am very happy with my progress on "Violets"
It is looking a lot less flat with the centres done and some details added.
I enjoyed the company of these lovely ladies very much.

A bit of catching up for me today, work wise and then I may get out my pencils and play my latest gift from my very nice hubby....I am an avid fan of the books and loved the first volume of the series and I am hanging out (as are some of my friends and DD) for the 2nd part which begins on April 4th! Yay!

I hope you are enjoying your day.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  3. I didn't know that "Outlander" was a series of books. My hubby and I have seen series one and I am so hooked. Like you, we are anxiously waiting for series two to start..

  5. Isn,t Outlander the revised title of the Crosstitch series? I seem to remember tgat when I bought Crosstitch recently as my mum has been telling about the series for years. I am saving the book to read when I go O/S in June . I am really loving your beautiful Violets and the thread colours are just perfect. Love your Easter decorations. Angel hugs.

  16. Love this post.....some of my favorite books, too. I've been leery of watching the series, though....after reading books, I'm most often disappointed with the way they're interpreted in film.
