A Stitchy Kind of Week

Sunday saw me catching up with the Sunday Stitchers girls for our monthly get together. A very nice time was had by all. I worked on my hand quilting and over the last couple of nights got it all done....
Only a sneaky....I will show you when it goes to its owner.
We had two birthdays Susan and Alison....
Alison had show and tell......her first blocks in Ruths quilt stitch along.
Yours truly flashing my Angel quilt...
A very nice day!
I have put all my RSC blocks out to see what they look like together.
Borders need contemplation now.
Yesterday was stitching day and I worked on my clamshells at friend Kays. I now have 14 rows done....
So today with the men in the family off to cheer on the Aussie cricket team (except our poor SIL....England supporter) I continued making clamshells.
The next row ready.....
All pinned on and ready to applique down...
My perfect companion for a little DVD watching.
My gift for SSCS is ready, wrapped and going on Santa's sleigh tomorrow.
Finishing up todays post by sending love and healing hugs to my dear friend Lorel.
Get well soon! We have stitching to do xxx
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
