FNSI

November's blogging stitching evening was last evening. WENDY at Sugarlane Quilts was our hostess....
My efforts consisted of cutting out and basting more clamshells.
Before turning in I appliqued a few down on row 15.
Thank you Wendy for gathering us together again.
This morning I made an effort to get to my sewing machine early to get the binding on my hand quilted project. I want it ready for me later in the day.
I do love looking at hand quilted stitches.....
Binding on and all ready for some relaxed stitching down when I am ready later.
A series of books was recommended to me by my Mother and after reading the book jackets I wasn't sure they were for me. They have languised for well over a year here. I decided to give the first one ago......a bit violent for my tastes but it is set in early Australia and the wild Frontier of my home State and I am certain the reality would have been far worse than even portrayed in these books.....scary thought! There would have been nothing romantic about living through it. Anyway the Author has done his job and whisked me away on a journey and YES I think I am hooked on this Saga!
No 1 read! No 2 begun......
Well jobs are waiting for my attention and voting in our State election has to happen yet. It's nice to have some stitching waiting for me for afters!
Happy weekend folks.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  10. Your handquilting is beautiful Michelle - such lovely little stitches...woohoo binding time, always a time to celebrate the ending of one quilt and - maybe- the starting of another! I really enjoy reading books about Australian (and NZ) colonial (etc) life - will have to look these ones up.
