Two Happy Stitchers

Yesterday my stitching friends met up at our friend Kays place. It was almost a full house. My friend Lorel has been my partner in crime during the Splendid Sampler Challenge.
I got to see Lorels beautiful version yesterday for the first time. Lorel did a mammoth effort completing all 100 blocks plus all the bonus blocks...hence the size discrepancy lol! The dilemma was how to photograph them together as they are quite big.....clever Kay had us hang over the verandah while she photographed us from below.
We are two very happy stitchers indeed. It was so very nice to stitch this together.
It was a lovely day. Chatting, some stitching and delicious food...bonus was lots of licks and cuddles from a brand new fur baby in residence. Thanks Paparazzi Kay xx
Well folks today it is bucketing down....Tropical Cyclone Debbie has decided to drop by with some torrential rain!
We have large wet moving puddles everywhere and it is apparently not letting up anytime soon.
All our schools in SE Queensland have been closed due to the very hazardous conditions. Lots of flooding everywhere. So no venturing out here today. Staying put! Cooking a big pot of chicken and vegie soup and stitching.
Yoga done this morning and walking will have to be in house today.
Please stay safe family and friends.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  6. A wet day here too, but thankfully not as bad as it was further north! Those two versions of the same quilt are so interesting together, and so different.

  10. Lovely quilts, both so different. That is one of the joys of patchwork I think. Your quilt becomes unique through your choice of fabric and layout, even though the pattern was the same.

    Yes, we have been watching your weather. Try to keep your feet dry and make the most of being inside.

  21. Great to see the two quilts hanging side by sie - how different they look in the different fabrics....but definitely both related! Love that last meme thing - it would be great on a label or I can see it made up into a hanging on my wall - perfect for a house full of quilts - and to let the family know why I cant stop sewing!! hehe
