Monday I had a very special friend visit.......FIONA  Her hubby dropped her at my door so I thought it best to take her in lol! We had a lovely day of chatting and sewing and as always our day went way to fast. So fast in fact we forgot to take a photo!
Fiona bought my  "Blessings " quilt home to me after working her magic on it.
I LOVE it! Here's a few snapshots of her wonderful work.
Pretty scallops....
Rings and stars.....
Love the stars...
Fiona replicated the star in quilting.....
So it's time for binding now. I shall show you when I am done.
Blessings came home and Brinton Hall went to Fiona's for a quilty holiday lol!
Fiona and I also discussed our progress on Wings that we and another friend are stitching together. You can see Fiona's beautiful French General version HERE
After preparing for the corner applique.....sweet butterflies
I am now getting them stitched in place.
I shall embroider some antennae when they are all done. I am really looking forward to the next row of applique blocks......ok back to my secret sewing. I have had a wonderful time with friends this week.
Friends amongst whom you can be yourself are treasures indeed.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
