Time in the Cave

For the last little while and at least for the next 18 months my little sewing cave is also hosting Mr R. who has the option to work from home. After a few adjustments we have settled in to the new routine. However the whirring and clattering of a sewing machine is not ideal when the Mister is having a conference call type meeting of which there seems to be many. So I either sew on the dining room table or I DON'T! Yesterday however his presence was required in the city. So I took full advantage and got cracking on a couple of projects needing assembly.
I had been working on a little stitchery. .
Which was to become a little dilly bag...
I  am pleased with how it turned out...
I  then put the little Dresdens together with their stitchery to see if I had enough fabric....being a stash buster and all...
I had plenty and the different background fabric looks ok. Of course when and if you stitch it you can have it all the same. I will have enough fabric to coordinate the other stitchery projects as well which I am pleased about.
After all that pondering and thinking I was definitely in need of some quiet hand stitching. So I  worked on my 2nd Blessings block and almost finished the centre star.
Nice to feel I am making progress.
I am truly blessed with my friends....so when 2 of my lovelies come knocking on my door because they can't wait for 2 weeks to have my new Teddies pattern...well of course I let them in Lol! Robyn and Monica are fellow bear lovers....
I had to do a bag search to make sure none of my little bears were bearnapped....they almost got away with  the Tiny Teacup Teddies table centre lol! That's not the idea...you have to stitch your own!
Seriously though it was lovely to catchup.....nothing nicer than settling down in a comfy chair with friends for a chat...thanks girls xxx Enjoy your goodies.
Off to fill the larder.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  10. The embroidery stitches on the little bag are just so perfect. I think that if I practice for another 10 years I may get there, or go blind. Love your work and I can understand your friends trying to 'collect' the little teddies. Take care, Guida

  11. Lovely projects there, Michelle. Ha ha, I have a SiL who prefers the finished product to a kit or pattern...she's always trying to convince shop owners to sell her their samples! Lol. (Good job you checked on your visit is as they left.)
