Wednesday Stitching Day

We all had a special treat today at our friend Bev's house for our fortnightly sewing day........a little touch of Christmas for Christmas in July.
Santa's watching over us......

Delicous things to eat.....missing in the photos is the warming soup and club sandwiches. My goodness! There is a saying in our family "full up to pussycat's bow" and we certainly were.

We all felt very spoilt indeed.
My friend Bev has beautiful taste and kindly let me snap a couple of photos of  her gorgeous groupings of special treasures.

We were all really industrious with our stitching and wool work amongst the laughter and chatter. It was also lovely to see Bev's favourite collection of vintage type fabrics that she has made into a beautiful quilt.
Isn't that bed simply gorgeous! Bev has just begun to hand quilt all these romantic fabrics.
I worked on my hexie flower blocks for Brinton Hall.
3 more appliqued down to add to the growing pile.
It was just such a lovely day.....thank you Bev for the spoiling!
I'm off to feed the husband.....don't think I can fit anything in lol!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
