Out and About

I have had a creative, stitchy kind of few days....which I love.
Friday I had a very nice time at friend Jan's with other friends too. A little show and tell....Jan's lovely flimsy of her cotton reel quilt. So pretty!
Don't you love it when friends let you dive into their stash for donations to a project...thanks Jan....the new clamshells are great.
Sunday I was off down the M1 for Sunday Stitchers. Some more delightful show and tell.....Cheryl's lovely quilt, getting its it's binding sewing down.
De's delightful Quilter.  So very cute!
We told Helen she should have bought a bigger bag to carry her show and tell lol!
Oh my! The hexies in it were 1/4 inch.....teeeny tiny but gorgeous!
When it is your birthday at Sunday Stitchers we gift the birthday girl with a fat quarter or buttons etc. of their choice. I was away for my birthday and had completely forgotten about it until friend Susan reminded me. What a lovely surprise! My choice was vintage type fabrics, French General or similar!
Absolutely loved all my fat quarters.....every one beautiful! Thank you so much girls.
Unfortunately I had to leave early as I had a meeting close to the city.
I  do love this precinct at galleries, library, museum and performing arts! Not to mention the leafy trees giving shade on a hot day.
So as you can see I have had a very nice time. It is a warm old day here in Brisbane today and more to come apparently.  So I am indulging in a nice cuppa, an old Poirot movie and a little stitching in the cool.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
