I had a lovely day today with my stitching group. I really look forward to my Tuesdays!
Sandi made the most delicious mandarin cake. I don't think I have ever had one before. It was really good!
We are working on our Natalie Bird "mouse pincushion". One side is finished with it's embroidery and little pocket. Wool appliqué is on a second side and we will stitch that down next week.
This months block of Gossip in the Garden is finished. Lots of little pieces of fabrics in the 4" squares! I nearly went crazy!!!
I have done some prep work on next months Dresden plate blocks. There are four of them with a little stitchery in the centre. This quilt is so much fun!!! I will see the Sunday Stitching girls, who are doing this quilt with me, this weekend and I can't wait to see everyone's progress!
Today I received a wonderful email from a lovely blogging friend, Roz, who I met way back when I first started blogging (5 years ago!). She was my first ever swap partner and we were in a "paper bag swap". It was so lovely to hear from her and take a photo of my gorgeous swap presents she made for me. I love the things people make for me. I love that a little piece of them is in that handmade treasure. I have been very lucky over the years! It made my day hearing from you Roz!
Hope you are having a lovely week!
