A Social Week

Monday saw me out at Green Frog Hollow Cafe at Logan Village. It's very nice out here.
Of late, life and it's ups and downs had gotten in the way of the Yoga girls spending time together. So we decided a catch up in what has become one of our favourite haunts was definitely in order.Hugs were exchanged, news caught up on, wishes for healing delivered and lots of laughter indulged in.
There may also have been a little cake action....
So nice to all be together again...
Tuesday - always very social at art. I finished my latest drawing after playing with my new untouched Pan Pastels for the background....I love this sweet little Silvereye in the Cherry Blossoms. I got the photo reference from Pixabay.
Wednesday.....stitching with my friends down by the bay at Sandra's. Lovely day, lovely company!
Wednesday night.... stitching with friends at Diane's. AND I have show and tell!
I finished my Rainbow Scrap Challenge block for April.....Orange/black/brown.
Sue was busy crocheting these beautiful Mandalas which she is sewing to cushion fronts....they are so lovely.
Diane was busy working on her latest Sashiko project. The photo doesn't do it justice.
Monica finished another beautiful UFO. It's a Faeries in My Garden much work in it.
The fabric inside this sewing satchel is soooo pretty too.
Of course the detail and stitching is gorgeous!
Most of the hexies are embroidered....beautiful!
So sitting a crazy old little black poodle and back to my secret sewing......I have enjoyed spending time with good friends this week.....blessed is what I am!
Namaste and Blessings to you all,
Michelle xxx
