We’re all going on a summer holiday!!

I am just back for two days of stitching in peace and thought I’d share some of our holiday fun… There was a day picking strawberries and of course eating them. I recommend the chocolate fondue at Sunny Ridge Strawberry farm. Delicious!!

The beach was beautiful and so refreshing after a hot day and extra special when you’ve never built a sand castle there!

   I got home to a parcel at the door and waited very patiently until children were in bed to open it… I had spent some Christmas money at Hancock’s sale and it was all sooo cheap (less than $6 a yard!) and look what I found…

Some Moda Lila Tueller Santorini in pinks – this will be the year I finally make a pink quilt… Stay tuned…

Some Kaffe Fassett fabrics, because you can never have enough of those gorgeous colours,

some bright American Jane Snippets Daisy dots in blue and a Chez Moi Swanky honey bun!! What a lot of fun will be had with these. Eye candy for the present…

 

Kylie and I had a lovely day yesterday at Somerset with our hand piecing class. Two reluctant hand stitchers who are addicted to the whirr of their machines, may have found another way… It’s not as hard as we thought it would be… Here’s some proof…

Kylie even looks as though she is enjoying herself!!

Kylie was the student of the day finishing her star first!

I did a slightly different layout and this is all I got done during the class.However, as I have no children at home with me, I sat down today with a long movie and got quite a bit more done… not sure how big I will do it…

Don’t tell my DH, but I may have another addiction – and it’s so portable!!

Happy stitching to you all,

I love what you have done, at and after class. I cannot believe that you have got so much done, with 4 children. Anne and I were encouraged by your energy and enthusiasm but I have some many things on the go at the moment that I don't know where to start. The other obstacle is - back to work today. Have a happy holiday and keep out of the rain

Love, love love those pink fabrics. It must have been a huge parcel. Both of your hand piecing's looks great.
