Sunday Stitchers

As March is Melanoma Awareness month, Sunday Stitchers had a special fund raising day amongst ourselves for Melanoma Institute and Tour de Cure. Blue and Yellow are their banner colours.....so we went with that colour scheme too.
Sandi and myself provided raffles...we had blue and yellow themed food and a wonderful "bring and buy" table......a few things may have popped into my bag....I will share in a later post. This made for lots of happy stitchers lol!
The winner of first prize in the raffle was Inca and she was thrilled with her win.
We were very pleased with our efforts and managed to raise $664, which will be shared with both charities......a wonderful day and loads of fun too.
We had 3 birthday girls....Teresa, De and Inca.
And our UFO CHALLENGES have made for lots of lovely show and tell....
My Yoko Saito blocks which was my No. 10 on my list.
Sandi had lots of cute Easter themed projects.....and her table centre is reversable....clever bunny!
Noreen has been stitching up a storm....
De's delightful quilt.
Susan's very useful sewing station....loved it! Plus a lovely wall hanging. Incas wonderful EPP in Tildas and another lovely by Sandi.
Noela's Ruth Quilt progress.....so pretty!
Maria has also been making progress on her EPP projects and another gorgeous blanket. Lynda's working hard on her hand stitched Trip around the World.
Teresa's beautiful sewing box.....love this too! Helen finished a sweet wall hanging and loads of lovely work in Tatyana 's amazing Russian cross stitch.
I always feel so inspired when I get to see all that these clever ladies do.
We had a great day with purpose and fun rolled into one.

When you do small things with love....you can't help but make a difference!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
