Yesterday was Australia Day here down under. We chose to celebrate quietly and I had a good old read and finished the binding on a special and personal quilt to me.
FIONA of BubzRugz which added an extra pinch of 'special'. Most of the fabrics are from my French General stash.
It's nice to have it finished because I can now concentrate on my other UFOs.
Today was stitching day with friends and Theresa made us feel right at home and we had our tea/coffee out of her beautiful teacups....went very nicely with our scones, jam and cream. We actually did stitch amongst lots of chat!
I worked on Brinton Hall (next on the list) I was pleased to get one hexie crown done and half another.
