Simple Pleasures

Good morning beautiful people! Glorious sunshine here this morning.....we've had a little  drink for the garden but not much.....
I joined my Wednesday stitching friends at Kays this week for a lovely day of stitching, loads of giggles....advice on aging disgracefully and delicous food....Kay spoilt us with 2 beautiful desserts.....

It was so hard to choose and I thought it rude not to try both, so I did......yum!
Thanks Kay xx
I worked on my UFO CHALLENGE, scallops on the borders of Blessings.
Row 2 is almost complete so progress is being made. I do just love this quilt design!
I have managed to stitch 1 little tag in Ruth's Quilt and working on a 2nd.
They are so delighful and I love the sentiments expressed on some of them. So glad I decided to stitch them.
I have also just finished reading a second book by this Aussie author and really enjoyed it.
I think I have enjoyed them because it speaks to women of my age and you can relate to these characters. Anyway.....I think I shall be persuing more by this lady. As we discussed on Wednesday, is there anything better than a good book! Apart from stitching and art lol!
Definitely coffee time for me.

Enjoy your weekend wherever you may be and however you choose to spend your time.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
