As we head through January after our end of year breaks, we have a series of little fresh starts....meeting up with friends again is just one.
Yesterday I had a lovely morning with friends to stitch......made a new friend, Sarah too.
Our dear friend Jan was our hostess and provided us with a beautiful cool space to work and delicious morning tea. Jan escaped my camera but I did get permission to share 2 of her works in progress.
Jan like a lot of you has been working on the 365 day challenge.....
This quilt is so rich looking with it's chocolates and tans and creams (no pun intended ) I find this quilt mind boggling....such intricately pieced little blocks! Amazing Jan!
The other is a half hexagon quilt and the effect is wonderful. Thanks for sharing x
Robyn was finishing off a late Christmas project...or she is early for this year lol!
So very cute and those little stars are perfectly pieced.
Theresa is trying to pretend she is not in the photo lol!
I worked on my clamshells and managed to get a few more basted.
Robyn spoiled us all with gifties from her Tassie trip. I have no idea why she thought that I would like this tin?
Ohhh isn't it the dearest thing...love it...and the fudge is still intact!
So lovely to catch up....big birthday hugs too Monica xxx
It was a nice start to the year to have a project in the January issue of
I loved creating Cherries and Chocolate! It contains some of my favourite things...fabric from friends, birdies, hexagons, a bit of red work, applique and was beautifully quilted by my lovely friend FIONA FROM BUBZRUGZ
It is a happy, joyful quilt for me. I hope you really enjoy it if you choose to stitch it too.
Time for coffee for me.
I wish you a lovely day....stay cool or warm depending on your Hemipshere.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
