In My Garden

Today I finished this and also gifted it to a very special person in our lives for her 70th  birthday ... Dear Auntie Daph ( hubby's auntie) .... there were tears and hugs ...

Thank you Natalie Bird for such a beautiful pattern.

As it was finished off this morning we had to stop along the way and grab some photos

Retreat Day Two

it was birthday day today for the lovely Cheryl.

After a bit of stitching in the morning (I was quilting In My Garden), we ventured out for some yummy lunch at the Warwick Garden Centre.

After lunch and a wander through the shops  we were back "home" and straight back into the stitching. I finished off my quilting and attached the binding so I am very close to a finish on this one.

The lovely Glennis (owner of Glenrose) popped over with nibbles for the evening.

Then I started working on a paper pieced mini ... this was a challenge with some very tiny pieces .. but I made it to the end and am quite pleased with how it turned out. Now just to frame it.

On a side note Chooky aren't you proud of me? Two blog posts in two days!!
