Collecting "Remembering Roma"

Yesterday I zipped up the Warrego Highway to meet quilter extraordinaire FIONA and friend at the halfway point between her home and mine. The reason being for a catchup, cuppa....

and to collect my "Remembering Roma " quilt I had stitched in memory of my Grandmother. I entrusted it to my dear friend Fiona and oh my her beautiful quilting has made it shine. I cannot stop smiling every time I look at it.
So many little sweet details in it.
I have some lovely French General fabric from L'ucellos for the binding. I am thrilled to pieces with it. What a clever friend...thank you xxx
On my way up to Fiona I went via another clever friends house, my friend Tracey White....she had a little order for me which is a secret so....sorry can't share yet.
Tracey will have her beautiful work at the Vintage Fair at Linen and Lace this weekend and also the Christmas fair at Tambourine Mountain.  Anyhoo! As I was leaving Tracey slipped a little gift into my hand....one of her sweet Shabby Chic Christmas ornies....takes me right back to childhood!
Seems to have been the week for being spoilt this week. Our family also has a special visitor from the UK staying at the moment. I was surprised with this beautiful mug.
In my very favourite mug shape....makes a perfect brew.
It's very "Downton Abbey" don't you think! Love it!
I must fly......when you play one day, the chores sit and wait for you.

Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  1. What a special quilt! And to have it quilted by such an expert - the icing on the cake. I heard a rumor that you love doing binding, so you'll have that quilt finished in no time.

  12. Lovely quilt there, and nice quilting on it too. I totally agree with you - a nice cup of tea needs to be in a nice cup. I don't mind mugs, but they need to be fine china.
