It's a Bit Damp

Old Brisbane town is a bit cool and damp at the moment. The garden is very happy and everything looks washed clean and green. Another little gem flowered for the first time since it was relocated.....made me smile.
Sunday was October's Sunday Stitchers meeting. It was extremely wet but we enjoyed our day......some lovely show and tell from Marilyn....
And two lovely quilts from Allison.

I worked on my clamshells and got a whole row sewn on, so I was very happy that I managed to stitch and chat at the same time lol!
After all the stitching on Gardener's Journal cottage block I chose a couple of smaller ones to work on....
Also in my pretty pouch is some Christmas stitching......
Another Angel Story block has been selected so fabric choices to make. Lots of different projects getting attention these days.
I hope you are enjoying your day. I am off to baste some scallops for the Blessings borders. A nice way to spend a rainy day afternoon. After much sharing of ideas, creativity and knowledge today in my art class, given so freely, I think this little pearl is worth some thought.

Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  11. Lovely to see your work from the weekend, plus the finished quilts; good on you mastering chatting and stitching at the same time - good multi-tasking :-) Great to hear you have enjoyed the rain - it is nice when everything freshens up and the world id rewarded with beautiful blooms. Wonderful words of wisdom.
