....ohh and pencils and paper

Monday, October 22, 2018


Yesterday was our Sunday Stitchers meeting for usual loads of beautiful show and tell. I don't know about you but seeing the work of others is very inspiring to me......
Helen had her gorgeous Miss Matty's Parlour finished to show us and I love the label. Noreen shared her stunning "Breast of Friends" quilt and we also had a special visitor.........De's Mum, Pat....all the way from Tassie! That beautiful bag was made especially for her by De.
Noreen also had 3 other lovely finishes particularly the blue strippy quilt made in rememberance of her dear Brother and donated to his care home.
Helen also had her beautiful Ruth's Quilt all finished and was a treat to see. I am not sure what the other lovely quilt was called.

Inca was also very industrious and made a great work pouch and gorgeous quilt in Flower Sugar fabrics.....the pretty blue quilt is a charming charity quilt Inca has made from donated fabrics. Tatyana's very cute little lady beetle was so sweet too.
Marilyn had some lovely finishes also.....a row by row group project, Christmas wall hanging and cute pouch.
I shared my Brinton Hall quilt which was my October UFO CHALLENGE.  I now have a finished flimsy.....woohoo! I do love those framed medallions!
I am really happy that I decided to finish it at this point.

Lots and lots of hexies....

A very nice way to spend a Sunday. Stitching, sharing and being inspired.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
