last sunday, after many hours of getting some kits drawn up and all prepared it was another lovely sewing sunday with a 'boutis' class here at the broderie home. marie christine flocard from france joined us for a lovely way to spend a sunday !
after the initial preparation, everyone got busy doing the real stitching, the pictures show that everyone looked very serious, but it was concentration that took over
beverley is just checking to see who she is while marie christine does some of her stitching! it was a most enjoyable day, here is a view of progress made on one of the small purses
it was 2003 when i last saw marie christine, so it was a lovely day spent renewing the pleasure of this beautiful work.
these a some small samples of many motifs.
yesterday day i was taken by a couple of friends for an 'outing' to ballan, about an hour out of melbourne to visit the mill cottage , it certainly broke the cabin fever i was suffering, always happy to be at home, but good to be out and about ! lunch was delicious and fresh and then we visited the shop !
the vanilla slices were also very delicious, now we admit to having one, but i did not take a photo !
i have also enjoyed these all the week, brought by marion last sunday, thank you, so lovely, the waratahs !
