Quick Post

Good morning to you all. I have a quick post for you....some lovely progress Show & Tell from a friend, my op shop find and my verrry slow progress.
Firstly thank you for snapping up my samples, I will have a couple more next Monday. They will be in the post today.
My friend Lorel is also keeping me company stitching my "Country at Heart" alphabet. She is however overtaking me...eek! I have her lovely progress to share.

I will have to get stitching....
Whenever we go to Brunswick heads I have a little nosey in a lovely little Antique store and I could not leave these pretties behind.
The cross hatching work on this one was all free loops if that makes sense.
So pretty!
Not too much happening stitching wise.....a little swap secret sewing and a little bit of quilting on my poor old Grandmother's Garden Quilt....I think it is starting to feel like a poor old granny.
Ok I am's stitching with friends day today and also this evening...yipee!
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
