Weekend stitching – part 1

At a very brief call in to GJ over the weekend, I spied a plate of (presumably!) delicious Anzac Biscuits.

But at Miss Helen’s on Saturday, there was a sumptuous spread!

20140428-174937.jpgWith the cooler weather, many of us have turned to hand quilting; I’ve finished quilting my Flower Bed – hip, hip, hooray!!!!

    Forgot to mention – blog land readers really can’t appreciate the amount of work you have put in to your hairy quilt as you have to acutally see it – all the embroidery and embellishment is truly amazing – just like looking at Marian’s antique crazy quilt. You have done such a fantastic job it deserves a place in your house TO HANG ALL YEAR ROUND!!!!!! x

    I love the way your days are filled with sewing and tasty treats. Your Flower Bed quilt is gorgeous!! The flowers have so much character and the aqua border just sets it all off beautifully.

  4. Your Flower Bed quilt is absolutely stunning! So beautiful and vibrant!

  5. Well done on finishing your hairy quilt ……it looks fabulous..xx
