another new month and the beginning of the next 6 months of the year, whoosh ! where did the first 6 go, passed in a flash !
it's only 2 weeks now to the birthday celebration stitching weekend for my friend marlene and the excitement is building ! i have made quite alot of progress on my preparation, so looking forward to seeing how it all comes together, i have the pictures in my mind, i wonder if i can get them out onto my background fabric, some linen is my choice !
i love this lozenge, it's funny how you stitch away and when some are finished i get a sense of satisfaction for some more than others, but together they all seem to blend or contrast, both is good i think
stitching sundays are popular at my place no matter the weather, often with friends as last sunday, or on my own ! and 'gorgeous' is a word that flies round the room as we look at what has been done by those who come, i am going to share with you some of the 'gorgeousness' that was here last sunday
trish had just whipped this up on the machine using lots of pretty scraps and had just finished this embroidered christmas table runner, i will share with you some of the busy little people and dogs having fun in the snow, even though we have our christmas in summer in australia, the traditional scenes of christmas in the northern hemisphere are never far away
there is lots of snow and this worker is having a rest and leaning on his shovel !
lots of snow in the snowfields here also, good for the school holidays and those who love the winter sports
gorgeous ! gorgeous !
jenny had her hearts on and i just loved the fabric her box was made from
and inside her box of goodies (love the lining too) were these sweet embroidered floral circles
and we were goung to prune the roses, but earlier in the week, my front fence was repaired and painted and the roses were pruned with a saw almost to ground level, yikes, it was jenny who did them last year when i had my broken leg
enjoy this new month !
