Little Quilt Store Surprise

Another detour or should I say we drove a little further before turning back to head for home.
A quick visit to Lynette Andersons Little Quilt Store.....LOVED IT..... Also how lucky am I Lynette was happy to have a photo with me and to sign my book.

BUT sad news Saturday will be their last day of trading through the shop. The doors are closing on the iconic store. Good news though they will still be trading online so you can still purchase all your favourite patterns books fabrics etc.....

Small Getaway and a Special Meeting

On our way to Mooloolaba we detoured so that I could pop in to Robyn's for a sit and stitch morning. I had been posting on Facebook our travels and when Robyn saw I was heading their way she organised a stitching day with Michelle Ridgeway and friends Theresa and Diane. I was so excited to finally meet Michelle and had a wonderful morning with the ladies.




I will catch up with everyone's blog on our return.

Happy stitching.......

Floral Bouquet

I have been taking advantage of the rainy days we have been having to catch up on some hand quilting my Floral Bouquet.  Seven has been helping, sitting by me with his blankie and every so often trying to sit on the edges instead of his bed.

Dutch Treat

Not sure if I will use this one a bit darker than I want in the quilt.


Also my apologies I am posting and on the Internet using my iPhone so I haven't been commenting on any blogs as it is so hard using the smaller format will be back normally Saturday :)

Happy stitching....

Daisy Meadows

Another block finished for Daisy Meadows. This makes three.

I will say this is testing my sewing machine skills as now I am hand stitching most of my projects. Lots of unpicking and back to slow stitching until I get used to the machine again...


The story so far...


Happy stitching.........
