Monday Craft

 We had a lovely show and tell at craft on Monday here is Joy showing us a quilt that she had made on a recent retreat.

 Brenda showed us her lovely bleach work that she did on the weekend and love the crochet blocks that she was crocheting.

 Joy also showed us a lovely piece of work that a friend had made for her,the cushion's applique is then covered over with some organza to give it a beautiful sheen.
 Brenda also showed me a lovely needlecase she had finished,she got the kit on a craft cruise,it was gorgeous.

Not sure what Rosemary was knitting but it was such a pretty green and Robyn is knitting another pair of socks.

Lorraine was binding her quilt that she had finished the fabrics in this were beautiful .

It was another fun day at craft.

Hope your day is a good one.

A Gift for a Friend

I decided to make a pouch for my friend Michelle for her birthday.

I just made the pattern up as i went along and hoping that it would turn out.

I used my stash of Morning Glory by Robyn Pandolph knowing that Michelle loves red and Robyn's fabric. All finished and it arrived in time for Michelle's birthday along with the gingerbread man.

Pierre is already quite at home at Michelle's.

And of course i used the Stitcher's alphabet for the M design ,which is a lovely pattern designed by my friend Michelle.

I made a lovely chicken and french onion casserole,i made mine in the crock pot,recipe below.

Hubby cant get enough of this we both enjoyed this meal and lucky it made up extra for the freezer.

Hope your day is a good one.
