Well I certainly showed myself up with my last post, didn’t I? You all know what an appalling house keeper I am now!! But, time spent on housework means less time for stitching……or socialising…..or blogging!! Thank you all for your lovely comments!!
And I did a bit of socialising and stitching on the weekend so I could do some blogging today…..just for you!!
The highlight of the weekend, and the winner in the show and tell stakes, was Miss S, who brought along her precious, newborn baby daughter…..
At that stage she was just 12 days old…..so beautiful…..tiny, tiny perfect fingers and toes…..little nose and gorgeous rosebud mouth….
Knitting by Nanna and embroidery by Great Grandma! I spent quite some time holding her and staring at her…..such a miracle!!
Ahem!! There was some other show and tell too!! Mrs Mac’s sister has come to the Dark Side!!! Welcome Miss D!! And she’s hit the ground running with fabric for not one, not two, but three quilts!!
Paper pieced Hexagons (yes, I did give another lesson!)….
(that cute heart was part of the wrapping!)
And the beginnings of a “something” for her son….
Mrs Mac had some lovely new fabrics to show us too….
…and Helen has bought some background for the stars she’s making using my Prairie Star template (VT4008MC)…
There was stitching on Saturday too, and Heather has finished this oh so cozy flannel quilt, all in bright flannels (and I thought that was an oxymoron!!)….
Apart from Prairie Stars, Helen is also working on her Sunburst Blocks (VT4017 / VT4018 MC), with the first one complete!
And to finish….another of “our” new baby, who was holding onto my finger!!
*Sigh*!! So sweet!!
