Back on the Air

Hello lovely people. I am back on deck. I am feeling a lot better and apart from a bit of a bark still things are looking up. As I was laid pretty low not a lot of sewing to show you.
When I got over the worst of it I did work on my Clamshells....very slowly! It was nice to lie under it and stitch at the same time.
I was able to join the girls for Sunday Stitchers this month and you guessed it worked on my Clamshells lol!
As it was my UFO CHALLENGE I had progress to show.....
It has definitely grown!
We had 2 birthday girls.....Maria
And Cheryl....
We were a bit short on numbers but the girls still managed some pretties to admire...Susan's Jelly roll race x 2, Marilyn had finished her pretty Funky Flowers and Cheryls wonderful kiddies quilt.

Maria wowed us with her beautiful throw, Marilyn has renewed her love of crochet with this lovely rug in  progress and Helen's very cute pin cushion trio.
Sandi phoned hers in.....cute...very cute!
Our UFO CHALLENGE NO this month is
Which for me is working on some Bear Stitcheries...
We had a lovely day despite being a small group. So that's about it from me. I am off to have a cuppa and enjoy some of this cute little fruit's a shame to cut it!
My Son gave it to me.....a gift from a fundraising event he spoke at for Smiling for Smiddy cancer research. Luckily for me he doesn't like fruitcake lol!
Take care,
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
