First Day Back

Yesterday was our first stitching day back for the Friday Girls, soon to become the Alternate Wednesday girls. We were a very small group but big on enjoyment. Some of our crew were swanning around on boats, others vanning or actually got better offers.....cheeky!
I even cooked.....I can cook an Aussie pikelet or three.
Delicious Aussie Apricot jam to go with them....no cream as I was looking after my "traditional woman figure"
Lovely Jan was our hostess and I was so thrilled when she showed me my gift to her all beautifully framed.....Kooka looks very happy in his Forever home.
I packed my stitching bag with my clamshells....
And despite lots and lots of chat, managed a whole row stitched together ready to add on to my growing quilt.
Pleased as punch with that! All you MIA girls....we missed you x
That's it from me....off to get ready to go out for coffee with the other and always Wednesday girls.....it is so sticky icky here today....wonder if I can go in my nightdress...I would wear matching beads.....no? Ok better go find a loose cool dress!
Happy Saturday,
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  4. Love the circle of clamshells.....I know your quilt isn't circular but wouldn't they make a good edging, or the centre of a medallion quilt? Your kooka picture looks beautiful framed, your friend is very lucky.
