Sunday Stitching

I had another lovely day yesterday with the ladies in this group.  I planned on getting lots of stitching done.....
But I didn't quite finish this weeks Christmas stitchery. 
However, there were lots of distractions today including one very cute, wonderful distraction.....
Our lovely friend Tatyana came for a visit with her gorgeous 3 month old Daria. She is such a cutie and was sooo good. 
She walked into a room full of laughing, noisy ladies and never cried or uttered a peep. Lots of cuddles and pass-the-baby and she took it all in. It was really good to see you Tatyana and little Daria. 
Lots of yummy food as always, but we were also very good! 
Maree has put all her "Gossip in the Garden" blocks together. It looks fantastic and I can't wait to get mine together now. I love this quilt!

Another great day with wonderful friends! Thanks again Maree for all the organising and work you do to make these days so much fun for us. 
Have a great week!

(P.S. In case you're worried, I did ask Tatyana if it was okay to post pictures of little Daria)

For yesterday's get-together I made roasted capsicum dip. It was delicious and super easy. Here's the recipe if you want to try it. 

Roasted Capsicum Dip
300g red capsicum
cooking spray
250g low fat cottage cheese
30g semi-sundried tomatoes diced

To roast capsicum, cut into large slices, removing core and seeds. Coat slices with cooking spray and place under griller. Grill both sides until browned. Skin side will blister. Allow to cool then peel outside skin from capsicum and throw skin away. In a food processor (or use a stick blender as I did) beat cottage cheese until very smooth. Add capsicum and tomatoes and blend into mixture. Keep refrigerated.
