Sunday Stitchers January

Our first meeting for 2020 was Australia Day themed and Susan and Marilyn did a fantastic clever!
We had an Aussie fruit map...
Aussie snack mat...
Very sweet Koala bikkies....
It was hard to bite them lol! But I managed! Along with a lamington and cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches.  Yum!
Very nice show and tell and Susan and Cheryl had Bushfire blocks to share also.

Some lovely quilts......

Once again a lovely day. I worked on my first Flowerville block and I am really liking the look of the thread. I have added some plain colours to break up the variegated thread and I think it's working well.
Lots of showers and a big storm have been welcomed by the garden here. Love a summer storm when they don't cause damage. Plumeria Alba has produced a lovely bract of flowers!
Extremely hot here today with another storm predicted.....a good day for some art and quiet stitching.
Namaste and blessings Michelle xxx
