Stitch Sisters

There’s been some technical problems on the computer front the last few days, and I have so much to tell you! (Don’t you just love technology?) But all “appears” to be ok……..fingers crossed!

So, going back to the weekend, Saturday was Stitch Sisters at Sue’s where her tribute to William Morris is now hanging on the wall,

  1. Quilting and cake seems to be a very popular combination.
    Seeing some of the cakes you show, I’m not surprised!
